It’s earthy and natural, which is a great departure from last year’s pick, Radiant Orchid. It’s not quite as rich a hue as burgundy, yet not as brown as what we’ve seen coming down the Spring ’15 catwalks.

The folks at Pantone describe it as:
“Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

It is reminiscent of the faded damasks from the past.

It’s a beautiful leather color, which could add warmth to camels, browns, navy or black.

The cosmetics industry will have a field day with this shade, which works beautifully for lips, cheeks and nails on most complexions.

It’s autumnal, but works with all of the ’70s influences we will see for spring.

Done in tonals, both darker and more vibrant gives the color the richness it needs.
