The Pantone Color Institute has just published a report on the top colors for fall 2009 as described by designers showing at New York fashion week. These shades (pictured above, left to right, top to bottom) are “a direct outcome of what’s happening in the world around us,” says Pantone’s executive director. Maybe so. Notably absent: cash green.

2. Purple Heart (Pantone 18-3520): 15.6

3. Majolica Blue (Pantone 19-4125): 12.8

4. American Beauty (Pantone 19-1759): 11.9

5. Honey Yellow (Pantone 16-1143): 10.1
