Tangerine Tango | The Future is Bright

Pantone declares Tangerine Tango as 2012’s Color of the Year. Fans of bold and fiery orange ourselves, we can’t wait to see how this shade presents itself in months to come. We’re thinking nails, lips and of course, our very own spring and summer collections.

Here, we share a peak at our spring digital campaign. We can’t wait to put on that deliciously vibrant and chic shorts suit and perhaps even do the tango…


Incorporate some Tangerine Tango into your life ! *Ehm* bathroom

Let’s face it most of us think all day about these luxurious bathrooms. But it doesn’t mean we should sit there and not do anything about our little own cute bathroom! 

Few quick fixes to make your bathroom more vibrant and fresh :
Try purchasing a few tangerine tango bathroom accessories such as towels, soaps, holders, or you can even try to paint your own design onto a wall.


Не знаю, каким образом, но в 2011 я пропустил бесподобный розовый оттенок жимолости! И это при том, что слежу за Pantone, имею дома несколько их вееров и вообще обожаю цвета.

Цветом 2012 года объявлен танжерин (цитрусовый фрукт, родственник мандарина). Очень жизнерадостный, но не банальный оттенок. Pantone меня вдохновляет!


Tangerine Tango - Pantone Color of the Year for 2012

How is the Pantone color selected?

The color of the year selection is a very thoughtful process. To arrive at the selection, Pantone quite literally combs the world looking for color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films that are in production, traveling art collections, hot new artists, popular travel destinations and other socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from technology, availability of new textures and effects that impact color, and even upcoming sports events that capture worldwide attention.

For more than a decade, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design. Past colors include:

  • PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle (2011)
  • PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise (2010)
  • PANTONE 14-0848 Mimosa (2009)
  • PANTONE 18-3943 Blue Iris (2008)
  • PANTONE 19-1557 Chili Pepper (2007)
  • PANTONE 13-1106 Sand Dollar (2006)
  • PANTONE 15-5217 Blue Turquoise (2005)
  • PANTONE 17-1456 Tigerlily (2004)
  • PANTONE 14-4811 Aqua Sky (2003)
  • PANTONE 19-1664 True Red (2002)
  • PANTONE 17-2031 Fuchsia Rose (2001)
  • PANTONE 15-4020 Cerulean (2000)

Key trend for the next year. Pantone have named Tangerine Tango as the colour of 2012. Gone is this years colour of Honeysuckle in favour of a more vibrant choice.

Pantone have said: 
“Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy" 

We love the colour its exciting and we’re sure it’ll be a big hit over the forthcoming year.  

Out with the old and in with the new. Pantone have named their colour for next year and that colour is ‘Tangerine Tango.’ Moving on from last years 'Honeysuckle’ they have chosen a more vibrant colour for the forth coming year. 

Pantone have said "Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of read with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.“

I expect to see this all over the place this year which is fine by me, I really like the colour!
