Following the collections presented at London Fashion Week for the SS23 season, Pantone, the trend and colour consultancy, has selected ten standout colours and five new classics.

The LFW SS23 colours set a new direction. This season’s colours integrate tradition and innovation, uniting our need for brightness and vibrant positivity with soothing tones. A fearless attitude and freedom of expression reframe our perceptions of colour with a no-holds-barred approach that manifests itself in vivid combinations.

“By anticipating our future, we are embracing the freedom to express our individuality with unfettered colour,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Experiencing a creative liberation that transgresses previous norms, we are adapting and inventing novel pairings and contrasting harmonies.”
