Last month I blogged about “mimosa,” the happy yellow shade Pantone chose as its 2009 color of the year. Now the trendspotters at PSFK report that only a month later, Pantone is already creating buzz over the shade by teaming up with Gap to create mimosa-colored shirts. The bold tees, along with other Pantone-colored shirts, will be available at a pop-up store on 5th Ave. More mimosa shirts may become available at later on.

I like the way Pantone operates. Instead of waiting for color trends to develop, why not just inspire and create them?
