Articles on winter fashion 2018
Each season the team at the Pantone Color Institute creates the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report; a color overview highlighting the top colors fashion designers showing at London Fashion Week will be featuring in their collections for the upcoming season. With color on the catwalk a key indicator of the color stories we can expect to see showing up across all areas of design, the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report is your easily accessible guide to the season’s most important color trends.
Similar to what we predicted for the runways in New York this season, the London Autumn/Winter 2018 palette demonstrated designers’ passionate desires to express originality, ingenuity and creativity through fashion. In a color story that combined classicism with creative expression, the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report for London Autumn/Winter 2018 features a bold palette of autumnal hues complemented by some more surprising shades.
Continuing to highlight the desire for color that transcends the seasons, the report for Autumn/Winter 2018 underscores the top 12 colors for men’s and women’s fashion, as well as five new classics. Highlighting the experimental nature of London fashion, we called out two additional shades for London; PANTONE 15-1515 Mellow Rose, a beloved and subtle, traditional English shade, and PANTONE 18-2045 Pink Peacock, in contrast, a striking statement color.
The continued transition away from cyclical trends, combined with a strong focus on self-expression and more exuberant color mixes makes for some surprisingly delightful color surprises in the autumn/winter palette. Exploring nuances within color families and experimenting with the mixing of materials and textures freshens and reinvents the seasonal color story.
Many of these unique shades easily stand on their own, however mixing and combining unexpected colors can help create a signature style or look. Adding an unexpected element allows for the artistry and originality that optimizes individuality.

About the Autumn/Winter 2018 Classic Color Palette
While there is no ‘typical’ anymore, there remains a need for structure and foundation in everyday fashion. We increased the number of core colors from four to five due to the ease in which they can be implemented, and their ability to cross the seasons. These shades are more crucial than ever, serving as the critical building block as ‘trends’ stay relevant longer, and consumers look to add variety through new textures, fabrics and beautiful combinations.
Boundless and fathomless blue mooring the palette.
Creamy white staple.
Natural baby camel hue with understated appeal.
Unobtrusive and timeless soft gray.
A highly adaptable toasty burnished brown.
