Colour Of 2010: 15-5519 Turquoise

We love Pantone, accept for those gift shop mugs, which depress us. Not as much as the Keep Calm and Carry On Mugs, but they're in the same yoga class. I digress: Pantone has announced its the 15-5519 Turquoise is the colour of 2010. As Kevin Bacon exclaims in Footloose: 'Jump back!'

While this trend is easily detectable in women's fashion, its completely absent in Menswear S/S Collections. Lanvin, Dior, 3.1 Philip Lim, D&G, Armani - everyone is avoiding this colour. Only Vivian Westwood has flirted with the tone for Spring Summer, and only with some small accessories.
Maybe Pantone should stick to mugs...

I think you might be right, I've already seen quite a bit of this about.
