Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine
Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it," said Leatrice Eiseman,
executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "Reminiscent of the
radiant shadings of a sunset, 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."
Over the past several years, orange has grown in popularity and
acceptance among designers and consumers alike. A provocative
attention-getter, Tangerine Tango is especially appealing in men's and
women's fashion. Fashion designers featured in the
PANTONE Fashion Color Report
including Tommy Hilfiger, Nanette Lepore, Cynthia Steffe by Shaun
Kearney, Elie Tahari and Adrienne Vittadini, are incorporating this
attractive orange into their spring collections. A fun, lively take on a
traditional autumnal hue, Tangerine Tango will surely carry through to
fall fashion as well.
A winner in cosmetics because of its
versatility, Tangerine Tango is a bit exotic, but in a very friendly,
non-threatening way. Add a sultry flair to lips, cheeks and nails with
Tangerine Tango. An unexpected eye shadow color, Tangerine Tango is a
complementary opposite that flatters blue or green eyes. When paired
with brown eyes, it brings out an amber cast.
