Pantone Selects Marsala as 2015 Color of the Year

Marsala is the Color of 2015

by John Sealander  

In 2015, these rich, robust red-brown tones will add a sophisticated, earthy elegance to any wrist.

Pantone has selected Marsala as its 2015 color of the year. Like the hearty, fortified red wine that gave this intriguing color its name, Marsala is a subtly seductive shade that adds warmth and sophistication to everything from fashion, to home furnishings, industrial design and beauty products. It’s not surprising that some of the world’s leading luxury brands have already chosen to feature this tastefully elegant shade on some of their most popular timepieces.

Ferragamo, Versace, Gevril, JOWISSA, and Johan Eric are all offering a beautiful selection of Marsala hued timepieces for 2015. From the luxurious Ferragamo Gancino or Versace V-Signature models to the affordable Johan Eric Orstead, Marsala’s signature red-brown tones will enhance and flatter almost any outfit.

The gorgeous 36 mm Ferragamo Gancino Sparkling features an IP gold case with 56 brilliant white diamonds that embellish the dial, bezel and decorative charm at 4 o’clock. Completing the elegant design with its Gancino inspired dial is a stunning Marsala colored lizard band.

The equally regal 24 mm Ferragamo Gancino Soirée pairs a Marsala dial featuring a classic two-hand configuration with a croco-embossed Marsala leather band to create the perfect dress watch. This IP gold plated beauty features a unique Gancino shaped case with an engraved Salvatore Ferragamo logo on one of the asymmetrical lugs.

The sensational Versace V-Signature combines a rich Marsala color palatte in the dial and cuff style strap with signature embellishments like IP gold Greek key lugs and an IP gold bezel engraved with a repeating Greek key pattern. This exciting two-hand configuration can be worn with both dress and casual styles.

The elegant Gevril Avenue of Americas pairs a luxurious padded and top stitched Marsala colored crocodile band with Gevril’s classically beautiful rectangular case. This stunning 32 mm luxury timepiece features a three-hand configuration with raised rose gold applied numbers and a convenient date window at 6 o’clock.

The 32 mm Jowissa Safira 99 combines a Marsala dial and padded leather band with Jowissa’s unique multi-faceted sapphire crystal bezel. The sophisticated two-hand configuration is perfect for any dressy occasion.

The contemporary looking Johan Eric Orstead enhances a unique perforated dial that provides a glimpse of the watch’s inner workings with distinctive Marsala colored hands and an elegant Marsala satin band. Sparkling Swarovski crystals serve as indices in this surprisingly affordable masterpiece.

The earthy and robust colors found on these exceptional timepieces are exceptionally flattering against many skin tones. Marsala is already considered a ‘go-to” color for cosmetics and beauty products. Since this versatile hue is already enhancing fashionable women’s nails, lips, and hair, it just makes sense that it would be equally flattering on a woman’s wrist.
