According to Pantone, 2015 is the year of Marsala.
Vastly different from the selections of the past several years (2014 Radiant Orchid, 2013 Emerald, 2013 Tangerine Tango, 2011 Honeysuckle), Marsala is warm, earthy, and sophisticated – reminiscent of it’s name sake, a bold Sicilian red wine.
There has already been a lot of buzz on the internet, with many criticizing the shade as dated, somber and in the opinion of some – downright ugly.
However, we think it’s application in the worlds of fashion, beauty, and home decor has great potential (think of your favourite bordeaux-toned nail polish or an antique Persian rug).
Below are 3 dazzling photoshoots from Pantone that really illustrate the depth and versatility of the hue.
