One of the most coveted honors of every year goes to a color. Pantone’s “Color of the Year” proclamation tends to set the tone for fashion designers and style critics for each season. This year, “Blue Iris,” a shocking shade of royal blue à la Yves Klein, was all the rage. Next year, prepare to see the runways (and eventually the discount lines at Target) awash in a citrusy-yellow-explosion Pantone is calling “Mimosa.” With recession, unemployment, and a general grim mood setting in around the country, perhaps wearing the acid hue will lift a few spirits. It’s very difficult to look depressed in neon.
