Pantone names the new colors
Every year we follow Pantone’s prompts, namely what color scale to choose in clothing.
Pantone dictates the fashion tones of the year and of each season separately. Most recently, we got acquainted with the ten trendy colors of autumn. Recall, the shade of 2017 was the color of fresh leaves – Greenery. And in the top 10 autumn colors came: a shade of golden lime (golden lime), blue peony (navy peony), a ballet slip of ballet slipper, a blue lagoon (marina), a neutral gray shade (neutral gray), a shade of autumn maple (Autumn maple) and shady spruce (shaded spruce). Also in this list were shades with a gastronomic name – a shade of butter with rum (butterum) and golden port (tawny port). The main color of the season was called the red grenadine (grenadine).
The institute of color Pantone recently pleased with the news about the creation of new three colors. These shades were named after the main characters of pop culture.
The first color is Love Symbol # 2, which was created in honor of the American music artist Prince. The singer passed away in 2016, and his hit Purple Rain inspired the Institute of Color to create a purple hue.
“Violet – this is exactly the color that is a direct association with Prince. This is a unique way to perpetuate his personality, “- commented Troy Carter, a representative of The Prince Estate.
The second shade is Nicoll Blue, which the Pantone Color Institute created in honor of the Australian designer Richard Nicoll. The designer died at the age of 39 from a heart attack.
And finally the third color is Minion Yellow. The cartoon about the minions, according to Pantone, left a deep mark in the history of pop culture. And very soon the unique gentle – yellow color will become the most fashionable.
