Yesterday Pantone released their official colors of the year for 2016 - Rose Quartz and Serenity. How do we feel about these two colors, GT? Are you going to immediately adopt them, or what color are you loving at the moment would you choose as your personal Color of the Year for 2016?
Also - feel free to opine on the fact Pantone decided to get political this year; they chose TWO colors for the first time ever, and their choice of pink and blue (traditional girl and boy) is, according to them, because:
the prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association. In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity
Genuine concern for social change? Cultural bandwagon?
My personal color I am super into right now is raspberry - not really pink, not really red, it’s bright and sunny without being too bright, works in every season, and is very flattering for a lady with yellow undertones to her skin such as myself!
How’s about you friends?
