Every year, Fashion Week inspires trends for the upcoming year, and this year's New York Fashion Week inspired Pantone Color Institute, the world's expert on color, to create a palette with all the colors you'll need to incorporate this Autumn and Winter. This palette reflects "our hybridized lifestyles and our contradictory yearnings" with bright, bold colors alongside earthy hues.

“Colors for Autumn/Winter 2022/2023 contrast our competing desires for calm and comfort with energy boosting vitality through a range of restful and restorative colors, in tandem with exuberant tones,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “As we move forward into an environment filled with contradiction, hues for Autumn/Winter 2022/2023 enable consumers to move fluidly between a range of contrasting shades, allowing them to spontaneously express who they are and how they feel on any given day.”
