Moving from maxed-out color to a more subdued look, Spring 2006 has relaxed from seasons past.

On the hanger

The trends for spring breeze in with a cool sense of calm, coupled with fashionable elegance. “With the influence of the beach, the desert, and natural, organic materials, neutrals take a stand with a range of quiet shades,” according to Pantone, Inc.’s Fashion Color Report Spring 2006. Resonating a gentle combination, muted pastels and deeper earth tones unite.

“After several seasons of color, color, color, it’s time to relax a little,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Color this season is toned down, more muted—they’re not pastels, not brights, but a nuance in between.” Making a departure from the deep autumnal tones of Fall 2005 and the electric shades of Winter 2005, Spring 2006 steers the trends into a playful respite of effortless attitude.
