CARLSTADT, N.J., – Pantone, an X-Rite company and the global color authority, today announced PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple, as the color of the year for 2014.
“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Radiant Orchid for Fashion
Radiant Orchid’s rosy undertones radiate on the skin, producing a healthy glow when worn by both men and women. A dazzling attention-getter, Radiant Orchid permeated the runways during the spring 2014 fashion shows and is already making its way onto the red carpet. Fashion designers featured in the PANTONE Fashion Color Report Spring 2014, including Emerson byJackie Fraser-Swan, Juicy Couture and Yoana Baraschi, are incorporating Radiant Orchid into their spring collections and variations of this hue will carry into men’s and women’s clothing and accessories throughout next year.
Radiant Orchid for Beauty
A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid enlivens the skin, making all who wear it feel more healthy and energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones.
This multifaceted hue is 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.
Radiant Orchid for Interiors
Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.
Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.

RELLECIGA Exclusive Fashion Show Leads 2014 Europe Bikini TrendsDecember 3, 2013
BRATISLAVA, Slovakia, Dec. 3, 2013 – As a representative of fashion, RELLECIGA held its Exclusive Fashion Show 2013/2014 in Slovakia, Europe on November 30, 2013, part of Europe’s biggest bikini fashion show. It won many compliments.
Runways, lighting, music, lasers, bikinis - the evening of November 30 belonged to RELLECIGA! Former Miss Globe contestant Lydka Juraskova led over 20 supermodels to display RELLECIGA’s latest 2014 designs. This season, bright colors are still a big thing in swimwear design. Ruffles, fringe, lace, bows, decorative strings, bows – these details are widely used in design. Bikinis are no longer three pieces of fabric; designers are adding more playful and even flirty details onto them so that bikinis can enhance the feminine charms of the wearers. And tropical jungle prints, animal prints and shiny foil work well in bringing out women’s wild sides.
More than 1,000 audience members from across Europe, including professional journalists, fashionistas, RELLCIGA Marketing Directors of European Countries and huge fans of RC, were invited to attend and watch the live show. After the show, they all thought highly of it, as well as of RELLECIGA’s 2014 Swimwear New Collection.
“We’re so excited to hold this show and share our fashion inspiration with everyone. As RELLECIGA begins to release its 2014 New Collection gradually, this show gave all the audience, especially the young ladies, a preview,” said Marian Glett, RELLECIGA’s Director in Europe as well as the host of this show.
RELLECIGA has already established a leading place among swimwear brands in North America, as Marian kept introducing during the show. “In the past two years, the quantity of RELLECIGA’s new designs was only second to Victoria’s Secret. In the coming 2014, the goal of RELLECIGA is to exceed VS and to be No.1 in the swimwear industry. Look what we have on the show!” What makes Marian so confident is the developing ability of RELLECIGA Industry Design Institute, and its professionalization also ensures that RELLECIGA is able to achieve the goal.
After this show, fashion magazines, TV and fashion programs reported and spread the news of RELLECIGA’s successes throughout Europe. Besides France, Germany, Italy and Spain, RELLECIGA has also reached the Mediterranean Coast, where RELLECIGA’s trendy bikinis are highly welcomed. Marian could not help but emphasize that RELLECIGA will keep impacting the whole of Europe, especially the European Fashion World, in the coming season: “This show made us even more confident about marching to Europe, because fashion magazines, programs and other press are getting involved in this. That’s essential and means that we at RELLECIGA have more resources here in Europe to catch up with the North American Market.”
