"COLOR", yay! , probably one of my favorite times of the year, since i have not one favorite color, but love all the colors of the world.
For years, Pantone has been initializing Color for our Design & Fashion industries, based off of the lifestyles and times we live in. Within the last couple years it has been bright & bold colors to adventure bright, fun and excitement to our worlds. Today we are more overwhelmed than ever with the fast pace of technology and the crazy surroundings in our daily lives activities.
From the Design Industry to Fashion Industries the Color of the year is reflected from the subtle hues of pink and coral.
From Mauve to Strawberry Ice, to the corals of the ocean will be bringing the cues from our favorite gardens, whether on land or under water.
Pantone is bringing us back home to our cozy comfort zones with fun, brilliant serendipity colors to calm and enjoy timeless quaint moments.
This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. An eclectic, ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times. Remembrances of retro delights, folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes restore a sense of well-being as we head into warmer months.
“Many feel compelled to be connected around the clock because we are afraid we’ll miss something important. There is a growing movement to step out and create ‘quiet zones’ to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still. Color choices follow the same minimalistic, ‘en plein air’ theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated. Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.”
