Color Cue 2008

Pantone has pronounced Blue Iris, a purplish blue, as the color of 2008. Read the Pantone press release. Read the NYT story about the surge in blues overall.

We like blue/purple in our household. We also like green, both figuratively and literally. Sadly, another NYT article, Flash in the Can, says that green (as in eco) is so over. That's the problem with fashion. It's in, it's out; but the earth still pays for our sins.

  1. I read the article as the obituary for the trend of stamping "GREEN!" on anything and everything as a marketing slogan.

    Green is not over. Demand for ecologically sound options is still alive and well. Consumers have merely smartened up and realized that a "GREEN!" label may mean nothing at all.

  2. I hope you are right. Sustainability needs to be in the forefront and stay there.
