Since 2000, PANTONE® announced the “Color of the Year” based on market and design trends. By 2015, the brand has selected Marsala as tone to represent them. According to Lee Eisenman, executive director of the PANTONE® Color Institute, Marsala is a unisex color that suits any skin tone, is dramatic and warm with a touch of sophistication. The choice of this color has been a contentious issue between designers dividing opinions about its versatility, especially after 2014, when Radiant Orchid was so popular.
