The Pantone Color Institute (PCI) highlighted top two seasonal runway colors of 2021 year: PANTONE 17-5104 ULTIMATE GRAY + PANTONE 13-0647 ILLUMINATING. The main message of the decision:
A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.The Pantone Color Institute
For around 20 years Pantone’s Color of the Year had impact on product development and purchasing decisions in different industries, such as fashion, furnishings, design and others. To choose the color of the year requires a lot of analyzes of trends, technologies, art and many other things, that have influence on us. The last year was a harsh one, and we still don’t know what to wait from the new one. Sometimes all what we need is to believe. To believe that despite all troubles we have, we can develop new, inspire, motivate and the most importantly, listen. Listen to others. I think that’s the key to a positive collaboration and outcome.
So, where to search for the illuminating inspiration nowadays?
I found some ideas for you: below you can see four topics. I concentrated on fashion, summer looks, makeup and interior. All are about how to wear and to use the new colors these days. If it’s a homestyle, streetstyle or just going for a shopping grocery, the true style is always inside us. No matter how hard it is right now, remember, we will fight and we will survive. The new Pantone’s Colors give us hopefulness for the brighter future. The combination of gray color and illuminating yellow brings new ideas how we can change our inner and outer spaces. Even if you are not a fan of them and black color is your big love, still when it’s raining too long, we all wait for the sun to rise. Even for a little. That is hope. We hope that everything will be all right. I hope.
Here you go!
