Pantone colour of the year for 2016 is Serenity and Rose Quartz – definitely a yes!
That’s right. The shade colour experts believe the combination of the delicate pink rose quartz and the soft blue of the serenity will dominate this year’s fashion, home décor and design.
In a news release, Pantone explained that the combination echoed a growing trend of challenging traditional perceptions about colour association.
“In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted colour trends throughout all other areas of design,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute, said in the release.
“This more unilateral approach to colour is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumers’ increased comfort with using colour as a form of expression which includes a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged, and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.”
