MAGIC: Pantone Showcases Menswear Line

Color experts Pantone will showcase their new menswear collection this week at MAGIC featuring a range of men’s basics in Pantone's immense range of standardized colors.

The collection was launched last week during New York Fashion Week in a popup shop in New York City's Meatpacking District.

The line, which joins the brand’s previously released collection of swimwear, includes tees, tanks, pants, shorts, sweaters, hoodies, jackets and accessories.

Pantone Colorwear is made in Europe and executed in the U.S. by the brand-building collective Empire & Branch.

"Having been such a defining guide and inspiration in color for decades, this exciting new apparel line makes so much sense for Pantone to extend their color leadership into the fashion industry," says Deepak Gayadin, co-founder and principal, Empire & Branch. "We're very excited to be launching Pantone Colorwear here in North America."
