Pantone, the global authority on colour, has revealed that the autumn/winter 2024 edition of New York Fashion Week embraces consumer habits linked to conscious consumption and slowing trend cycles with a colour palette offering a “lively mix” of functional and adaptable colours.

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a statement: “Colours for NYFW autumn/winter 2024/2025 strive for balance between the more familiar and the new and exciting, embracing longevity and seasonless style.

“Functional and adaptable, they are reliable and robust, servicing our increasingly hybridised style of living, providing a strong chromatic foundation and at the same time delivering playful and energetic accents for moments of magic.”

NYFW designers will be utilising colours infused with “an inherent richness and earthiness that highlights our deeper connection to nature” with a collection of warm tones derived from natural pigments, opulent mid-tones, accessible neutrals, and universal greens.

“Fun, but also functional, essential but not un-exciting,” explained Pantone. “Colours for AW24, are straightforward, exuding a self-assured, no muss, no fuss demeanour.”
