Tangerine Tango, the color of the year 2012

Last year was the energizing honeysuckle, a reddish pink.



This year is Tangerine Tango, a lively shade of orange.

Leatrice Eiseman, color specialist and executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, states about Tangerine Tango: "Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. 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."
It may remember also some tone of stony coral.


People's reaction has been fun since Tangerine Tango is a very strong nuance. Someone is actually terrified by the idea to wear it! I personally like it, both used just in details


and everywhere!

    Devo un po' farci l'occhio, perchè esula dai miei colori preferiti, ma sono sicura che indossato....mi farebbe un ottimo effetto.
    E' davvero carico di energia!
