Pantone Debuts its Nylon Brights Collection
May 17, 2011,
CARLSTADT, N.J.-Pantone has launched its newest color group, The Pantone Fashion + Home nylon brights collection. With 21 electric shades in a nylon format, this new collection now provides designers developing products in nylon materials with a standard for accurate color selection, specification and reproduction.
The collection comes as brights have been making a resurgence at retail. "After years of 'playing it safe,' consumers are once again embracing color - in a big way," said Laurie Pressman, vice president of fashion, home and interiors at Pantone. "From the runway to the retail selling floor, vibrant, lively colors continue to make an impact on the world of fashion and design. Our nylon brights collection was developed to inspire designers with a selection of colors that energize and excite."
The collection is available as a set of nylon swatches, which includes a BHT-free amber UV protective pouch to protect the colors when not in use, as well as swatch cards. All colors in the nylon brights collection are dyed in Nylon 6.6, which has improved light fastness and wash fastness over Nylon 6. The set is available now for $99.95, while the swatch cards are sold individually for $12.95 for a four-inch-square, double-folded fabric card (which is 4 by 8 inches unfolded).
