The Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 is….Ultra Violet
Yes! Pantone has released their colour of the year, and it’s eminently wearable – hurrah!
As explained by their creative team:
“Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of UltraViolet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality.”
Well, that’s about as far from a blue rinse as purple gets!
We’re styling it for the day here – to turn the look up for the night, opt for nudes and, glittering, shimmering golds to keep it modern and fresh.
