Inspiration Board: Honeysuckle, Pantone's 2011 Color of the year
"In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is an captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going-perfect to ward of the blues," describes Leatrice Eisman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical,viscerally alive hue in the spectrum."
Reminiscent of the sweet smell of the honeysuckle flower; this color is a perfect introduction to the spring and summer seasons. Flirty, feminine, playful ranging in color from coral to reddish pink.
An avid fan of fashion sketches and illustration, here are a few designer interpretations:
