Break Out The Swatches: "Pantone On Fashion"

Chronicle Books

Lush color and high fashion… described on the radio. 

We do feel the need to stretch ourselves from time to time.

Colors from Cyber Yellow to Jet Black and their uses in fashion are profiled in Pantone on Fashion: A Century of Color in Design.

We visit with one of the authors.
