Fashion and Pantone 2016

With the beginning of a New Year means one important thing. I’m not talking about the resolutions you’ve set for the year or the celebrations this past weekend for New Year’s Eve, instead I’m referring to Pantone’s latest announcement of the Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. If you’re a designer or appreciate the meaning behind design, you’ll understand my excitement in finding the purpose behind these choices. Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s Executive Director, illustrates that the deeper meaning of these selections is to create a sense of order and peace through Rose Quartz’s warmth and Serenity’s tranquil tone. Curious about these colors, I’ve done a quick search to find how sustainable and ethical fashion companies have taken on these hues. To my delight, I discovered a wealth of possibilities from around the world and have included my favorites from NOVICA, Faire Collection, Passion Lillie, People Tree, Indego Africa, and Braintree Clothing.

    I kind of love that there’s a highlight on a special colour every year by means of Pantone, it’s just fun to play around with colours a bit even though my favourite colours is and always will be black 😉

      I love playing around with colors too. I also think black is a great color because it has so much more potential than people think!

    I love this year’s colors! They are the colors I loved more when I was younger but as I matured I started liking more vibrant earthy colors. I welcome a few pieces of these soft tranquil colors in my closet this year and already must have seen them coming because I bought a faux leather jacket and a sweater in these colors last year. Love your site! Peace! Cheryl

    Soft colours are so flattering. I wonder how long before we see them in stores down under?

    • brooklyntvlasich

      I agree. Soft colors add a nice touch to any outfit. I hope you get the chance to see them in your part of the world soon!

    I’m so glad to hear that rose quartz is the color of this year, Brooke. I love this color and I just got a watch with a rose quartz bracelet this Christmas.

    Such lovely soft colors. I’ve always been a fan of ballet pink, and that lavender blue is so soothing!

    I do love these colours- they really appeal to me. I usually love Pantone’s colour of the year but I really did NOT care for last years colour…
