Radiant Orchid Shoes

Radiant-Orchid-PantoneCredit: Pantone

This charming purple hue captivates a “harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” while “emanating great joy, love and health”.Pantone recently announced radiant orchid as the 2014 color of the year.

This purpley shade covered the runways at NYFW and I expect to see it on our favorite red carpet starlets as well as on clothing and accessories throughout the year.I always look forward to this report which covers the season’s most important color trends.

I love the graphic patterns used on the Roger Vivier & Nicholas Kirkwood styles combined with a spicy cayenne red. Featured below is a quick look at several spring shoe styles I’ve found in variations of this hue.Manolo Blahnik opted for a warmer two-tone design mixing byzantium with fandango.
