Fashion week, the sartorial check-in that takes over New York twice a year — or four times if you count Resort and Pre-Fall — serves to introduce the reigning trend forecast for the year ahead, from silhouettes to new faces. Though ostensibly about clothing, it influences every sphere of design. And when it comes to color trends to watch, no one runway show can touch the benchmark reports .

Pantone, which earlier this year announced Ultraviolet as the color of 2018, has analyzed emerging trends and assembled an authoritative list of chic new hues to watch as we approach Fall '18. Spoiler alert: they are all majorly fab, and decidedly outspoken. , Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, notes, "As designers and consumers alike continue to transition away from cyclical trends, and instead focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure, we are seeing very notable non-traditional choices."

Below, Pantone's avant-garde picks for Fall 2018, which an Institute press release categorize as, "Autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise."
