Meet Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year 2014, which is “not to be confused with ‘radiant orchard,’ a mysterious psychological phenomenon that causes 20-year-olds to somehow enjoy the Lower East Side on weekend evenings.”
"It’s a daring color for men. Bold men might try it in a shirt—solid or print—while more timid types might just use it as an accent color in neckties and socks.”
'Those meeker still will purchase radiant orchid keychains, toothbrushes, or watchbands—something small and non-threatening. The men too fearful for even a tiny accessory might, while gripping tightly the hand of a loved one, simply Google 'radiant orchid' and allow its combative womanliness to, just for a moment, color their computer screens. 'Ahh!' they’ll scream. 'AhhhHHHHhhhHHHHHHhh!'”
