Pantone Makes Big Comeback For ’09
Henry Holland isn’t the only designer paying homage to Pantone this season. Sea Vees, the LA-based brand that launched just last year, draws inspiration for its sneakers from 1960s California cool (think Top-Siders-meets-Keds). And, this season, they’re showing Pantone some love with a collection of kicks colored in Pantone-approved shades.
The brand will introduce a total of seven different styles, each of which is a different shade picked from Pantone’s vast color archives. A limited edition of only 1,963 (the year in which Lawrence Herbert conceived the Pantone color categorizing system) pairs will be made. So, don’t expect these monochrome kicks to be around for long.
