Pantone goes soft! it has been officially announced that the new Pantone color of the year will be on the pink side, specifically uniting two tones, Rose Quartz and Serenity. On the official Pantone website, a romantic description stands out:
Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
Ok, all very nice. But how do we feel about it? Because it’s going to be about us very soon, you know. As usual, the new Pantone color will be soon taken over to be crowned kind of the new upcoming trends, ruling on the catwalks everywhere. Soon, and sooner than you think, we’ll be seeing pink — ok, Rose Quartz. And Serenity — all over the place.
The Pantone website goes on justifying the choice of a blur of calmer colors with a recent ‘gender blur’ in fashion, inspired by the gender equality our world (luckily) seems to embrace everyday a little more. And it definitely sounds inspiring. But are we ready to see a pinkish shade all over? One thing is for sure: it’s going to be tough for all-black-everything lovers.
