As if you hadn’t already gathered from your osmotic relationship to the penumbra of trend that envelops us all, Blue Iris is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2008.
Following in the esteemed tradition of 2007 winner Chili Pepper (#19-1557), Iris (#18-3943) will be spending the year visiting children’s hospitals, casino openings and runways everywhere. Grab yourself an Iris colored polo and, come spring, you can say you knew him back when he was just a baby blue. You know, before he got all full of himself.
