We’ve been getting lots of emails and press releases recently featuring Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014, Radiant Orchid.
Ann Sacks and Baker sent out a color-keyed selection from their collections just this past Friday, featuring that pinky-plummy shade of purple.
Both New York magazine and Seventeen have published product stories focusing on the color—how often do those two agree on a subject?

We weren’t totally surprised at the choice of hue: looking back at the past year, New England designers have been keen on colors that look suspiciously close to Radiant Orchid, as well as its bluer and more lavender cousins.
