Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report Spring/Summer 2023 edition for London Fashion Week (LFW). Published for the fashion industry by the Pantone Color Institute, the trend forecasting and color consultancy, this season’s report features the top ten standout colors as well as current takes on five core classics we can expect to see as fashion designers introduce new Spring/Summer collections.

According to Pantone Color Institute experts, colors for LFW Spring/Summer 2023 chart a new path forward. Recontextualized with a modern edge, this season’s colors integrate tradition and innovation marrying our need for brightness and vibrant positivity with quieting tinted tones. A fearless attitude and freedom of expression reframes our perceptions of color with a no-holds-barred approach coming through in witty mixes and animated pairings.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, said:

“As we anticipate our future, we are embracing the freedom to colorfully express our individuality without constraint. Experiencing a creative liberation that transgresses previous norms, we are adapting and inventing novel pairings and contrasting harmonies.”
