Pantone/Gap NYC Pop -Up Store

Found this over at Buffawhat's Blog (Hero's best customer) and what a good find it is.

Pantone-mania has gone to a whole new level, and this design geek couldn't be happier about it!! I have posted about rad Pantone goodies many times on this blog, but this one might take the cake. Ironically, I was going to post today about Pantone's color of the year for 2009, Mimosa, since I have been obsessed with that shade of yellow since early fall!! This post is even better though.

This past weekend Gap and Pantone opened up a pop-up shop on 5th Ave in the company’s ‘concept store’ space. The shop will sell t-shirts in a range of Pantone hues. Pantone recently unveiled its pick for the 2009 color of the year called Mimosa (14-0848) Pantone describes the color as having seven characteristics, optimistic, hopeful, reassuring, warm, cheerful, radiant, and versatile which they feel are the most relevant to the next twelve months. Gap has issued a Mimosa hued shirt that is only available at the store on 5th. Sounds like the rest of the line will show up for sale on the company’s website and other stores.
