Once again, Pantone has got us all excited, revealing their colours for 2016 before the new year even begins. Pantone Colour Institute has declared that one hue is just not enough; so they’ve had twins! Enter: Rose Quartz & Serenity.
And this isn’t the first time we have seen Rose Quartz hit the headlines – in October, the Spring 2016 PANTONE Fashion Colour Report detailed Rose Quartz at the leading colour. So if you haven’t already fallen in love with this dreamy hue, there is still time.
In this design led industry, if you’ve got an eye for style, you’ll no doubt have an eye for colour. To celebrate this revelation, we have compiled a PANTONE inspired gallery to inspire your fashion & lifestyle selections for 2016. With Fashion Exposed Online, you can trust you’re always on trend whether for the casa or the closet.
So why two hues?
Similar to varying skirt lengths every season, trends in colour also mirror economic and societal climates. For 2016, we see warm roses as per PANTONE 13-1520 & the cool azure of PANTONE 15-3919. They unconsciously satisfy our need for peace, balance and security, in our busy modern life.
With the prominence of gender based social movements, the choice of two previously stereotypical colours reflect the fluidity of genders and an acceptance of the androgynous. No longer are pink and blue shades exclusive. Hooray!
Whether in matte, metallic or gloss, we’re convinced the pastel Rose Quartz & Serenity will be a hit in 2016.
