PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013.

The 2012 color of the year, PANTONE 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, provided the energy boost we needed to recharge and move forward. Emerald, a vivid verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight as well as promoting balance and harmony.

Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. Also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity, no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.

“The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”

Zaha Hadid Designs The Bottle For Donna Karan Woman

 

“I believe in the power of women. As nurturers, we have a unique ability to care and share and make the world a better place. Women Who Inspire are women who are making a difference. This website gives their inspiring messages an interactive forum, encouraging women everywhere to take action and get involved.” – Donna Karan

Donna Karan has continuously emphasized her faith in women and what they could accomplish for the world on various levels. For her latest scent, Donna Karan Woman, she collaborated with one of architecture's leading icons and Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid, to design the bottle.

The bottle itself is made of ombre charcoal glass, about which Hadid says, “The bottle’s dark, translucent qualities offer a sense of mystery that awakens our curiosity.”

I am personally a big fan of Donna's Cashmere Mist, I can't wait to try this one as well. Below are more images pertaining to the campaign and bottle itself.
