color love: pantone spring/summer 2010: tomato puree

Pantone Color Trending continues with this season’s Tomato Puree ( HEX:#C3374D RGB: 195/55/77) . The shade is described by Pantone as “The season’s classic red”.

Almost more of a luscious berry than a true red… the name Tomato Puree contradicts the true tones found in this gorgeous red shade. I think I might think of it more as “Raspberry Sorbet” or “Morello Cherry”… 🙂

I do find it interesting that all of the Pantone featured designers for this color have used red tones in their collections that are much more orange and tart reds.

Here’s some more peeks at the Spring 2010 runways, where ALL shades of red were evident… in the fine details, lips, shades, shoes, ruffles galore, hair accessories, bags, bows, bracelets, eyeshadow and feathers!
