Anyway, I love Pantone's honeysuckle color. It's such a pretty coral pink color that I would adore to incorporate into my wardrobe a bit more this spring.
Which all means, of course, that we must end with a quote from The Devil Wears Prada:
But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent... wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? . . . And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.
P.S. Did you know that Pantone announced Cerulean as the color of the current millenium in 1999? The conspiracy grows!
