Pantone colour of the year 2016

For those of you not in the know, Pantone, a highly influential company in the realm of design and general colours in fashion have released their Pantone colour of the year. The Pantone colour of the year is supposed to be a snapshot of what Pantone sees taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and attitude, which transtales to having everyone and anyone involved with fashion paying interest in what Pantone believes are the current hot fashionable colours for the year.

The Pantone colour of the year

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the Pantone colour of the year 2016. The reasoning behind this choice was that consumers around the world will be looking for ‘mindfulness’ and a sense of ‘well-being’ to combat modern stress sources such as work, economic situations and global security. The colours of Rose Quartz and Serenity  psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security and as such are predicted by Pantone to feature prominently in this year’s fashion.
