PANTONE Colours of the Year That You Must Know
You must have noticed that every year designers follow a colour theme for their runway shows and when you visit a fashion store, you notice a similar colour theme is followed for almost all the outfits. Wondered why? Because every year PANTONE Colour Institute produces the Pantone Fashion Colour Trend Report and that’s from where designers pick their colours.
Here’s presenting Living Coral, the colour of the season for 2019 and other favourites of ours from the report released by the Institute.
The lively colour of coral is rightly picked as the colour of the year for 2019. The warmth of the colour adds a spirited vibe to the outfit or anything. The Institute says, “ Living Coral is an affable and animating shade whose golden undertone gives it a softer edge.” We couldn't agree more.
The richness of Jester Red made it one of the picks for the colours of the year. The best part about this tone is that it’s dark yet cool on the eyes therefore apt for all the seasons. “Adding depth and intensity, Jester Red combines rich elegance with urbanity”, says the Pantone Institute.
The soft and subtle tone of Sweet Lilac makes it the most loved colour irrespective of it’s mention in the report. This tone falls somewhere in the middle of Pink and Purple. Both being the hottest hit among the fashion lovers lilac makes the best choice for a summer or spring collection. Here’s what they have to say about it, “An endearing pink infused lavender, Sweet Lilac’s easy and gentle manner quietly charms.”
Picked up by numerous fashions labels, Terrarium Moss is already one of the hotshot colours of the season. Coming from the family of Olive, this organic colour has very earthy yet urban feel. Pantone Institute says, “Terrarium Moss conjures up thoughts of flourishing foliage and the physical beauty in the natural world.”
The lightest of all the colour Sweet Corn is a beautiful tone that challenges the fan base of white and ivory. Colours coming from their family are anyway the top favourites amongst the people and what makes this particular one the dearest to the Pantone, “Sweet Corn tempts with its soft and buttery attitude.”
What can challenge the royalty of Blue? Only the other shade of blue. The regal tone of Princess Blue is picked up by the designers for their high-end outfits such as for their wedding collection, party wears or red carpet outfits. The Institute says, “Princess Blue, a majestic royal blue hue, glistens and gleams.”
Now you know how the top notch designer picks the colour for their collection. Shortlist a few for yourself too.
