Three Plus Three to (Tangerine) Tango
In honour of Pantone's incredibly gorgeous and irrelevant colour of the year, we've rounded up some tangerine-dreamy stuff.

Un-hold your breath, dearests, because the announcement you’ve been waiting for all year has come: Pantone has declared their colour of the year for 2012. And it is…. apocalyptic sunset! Just kidding (we’re so funny), it’s called “Tangerine Tango.” And while that’s incredibly annoying to say out loud, like ordering some kind of ladies night cocktail at Moxie’s, it’s a beautiful thing to behold. LOOK:

Here, we’ve collected a half-dozen Pantone 17-1463 TCX-coloured things you can buy right now, because god only knows how uncool you’ll be if you wait until 2012.


Essie polish in “Tangerine”
is the new red (not true) and a no-brainer. $9.99 at salons across Toronto.


Phaidon’s Wallpaper* City Guide, Tokyo edition, 2008,
isn’t the latest (there’s an new one for 2012), but it is the greatest… colour. Plus, everyone knows Tokyo was way cooler in ’08, like hi, Sofia Coppola? $11.95 at bookstores.


Sorry, Pantone, but Hermes had the best tangerine of all time. Also, sorry to everyone reading this; I was just listening to Bon Iver on the radio talking about Kanye and the Grammys and besides, that joke is vintage now, no? Okay, I SAID SORRY. $799 (USD) at Hermes.com; call Hermes on Bloor (416-968-8626) to order.


Notice that this Ciao Bella sorbet is called “Blood Orange,” because that’s what “Tangerine Tango” actually is. Blood orange. Not all winter citrus looks the same, Pantone. End corporate racism now. $6.99 at Loblaws.


ALDO’s “Teem” bag
is like something you’d want from Mulberry, but cheap. $55 at ALDO.


This EQ3 “Hugo” chair is larger than it may appear. It does not, in fact, fit inside the above handbag. Sorry (god, I’m sorryish today) for any inconvenience this may cause. $599 at EQ3.
