Pantone has listed some colors for Spring 2012, and the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute had this to say.

 “Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “They have learned how color can help them alter a mood and provide the vitality and enthusiasm that enables them to experiment with new looks and color combinations.”

On view, a snipette of the Pantone color report which features NYFW designers, and as you might suspect, their color infatuations for the Spring 2012 season.
