This week Pantone revealed its Colour of the Year for 2017, and next year's shade is certainly a divisive one. Each year Pantone predicts the hue that is set to make an impact in fashion and design, and next year's colour is a "fresh and zesty yellow green" called Greenery. Think Kermit the Frog or Waitrose green.
The two key colours for 2016 were Rose Quartz and a baby blue called Serenity, but this year's choice is a nod towards the environment and is, according to Pantone, a colour to "revive, restore and renew." You might shudder at the thought of wearing bright, bright green, but it was seen in the spring 2017 collections at Balenciaga, Pucci, Michael Kors and Kenzo.
Greenery seen at Pucci and Balenciaga for S/S 17.
