Runway Beauty Flashback S/S 14: Pantone’s 2014 Radiant Orchid
By Theresa Yee

Fashion’s top designers were right on trend with purple-pink inspired beauty looks during S/S 14 fashion week.

Dec 05, 2013


Pantone’s 2014 color prediction is Radiant Orchid (18-3224 TCX): A feminine and fresh hue that’s perfect for the beauty market. The  gorgeous, soft pastel purple appeared at Prada, Peter Pilotto and Prabal Gurung. All of the designers featured lavender-pink beauty in their S/S 14 shows.

It’s like fashion’s top designer p’s were trying to tell us something.

Pantone says the color is the perfect multifaceted hue for 2014: “seductive when combined with red and pairs well with its sister shades of lavender, purple and pink which provides an assortment of lipstick and blush options. Radiant Orchid’s exuberance also acts as a brilliant finishing touch to nails.”

Take a look at some of the Radiant Orchid-inspired looks from recent global runways below:
