I’ve always been intrigued how companies like Pantone announce their Colour of the Year and how that announcement influences designers and products worldwide. Apparently, Pantone’s consultants and executives watch the runway Spring collections and analyse the colours shown there. So it is not just one colour that shows up, but a whole range that will be popular in the coming season. Of this, the strongest colour is chosen to be the ‘Colour of the Year’.
2013 was the year of Emerald Green. Next year, we’ll be dazzled by Blue.
Yep, that’s the exact shade of Pantone’s choice and it’s a bright, startling one. Think walls in Mykonos, or blue and white china.
The colour will show up on clothing and jewellery, too. I would love a handbag in that shade, and perhaps high-heels (perfectly impractical for the school run, but hey, when has that stopped us?)
What do you think? Like?
