Ev­ery year, Pan­tone chooses The One—the colour that will gov­ern trends and set the style cir­cuit ablaze. This year, that colour is Marsala—a brown-y red, like an earthy wine. “The im­pact­ful, full-bod­ied qual­i­ties of Marsala make for an el­e­gant, grounded state­ment colour,” said Leatrice Eise­man, Direc­tor of the Pan­tone Color In­sti­tute. Within min­utes of the an­nounce­ment, the net-verse was buzzing with mixed re­ac­tions. New York Mag called the shade “icky”, and The At­lantic com­pared it to “dried, freaky blood.” On the other side, though, Marsalain­spired wed­ding ideas be­gan trend­ing by the dozen, the IKEA Share Space en­dorsed that it ‘works well with a va­ri­ety of colours,’ and Pin­ter­est was aflush with warm-red mood boards (in­clud­ing the Marsala Col­lec­tion by Saatchi Art that has gar­nered many a pin). And when we went celeb trend-spot­ting, we found that Kim K, Tay­lor Swift, Blake Lively and many oth­ers had al­ready gone the muted-scar­let way. So, are you ready to Marsala-fy your own wardrobe? Look be­low for some pieces to get you started...
