Has it really been a full year since the global colour leaders Pantone annouced it's Colour for 2015 was Masala 18-1438..? As this year has progressed you will have no doubt have noticed it's steady trickle from celebrities wearing it at awards shows, to designers using it on the catwalks, to the High Street picking it up and now to us wearing it as part of our Winter wardrobe. However much we may profess to not being dictated to when it comes to fashion, what we wear is on-the-whole, decided upon many months in advance. Who can forget Miranda Priestly's put-down of an explanation of Cerulean blue to her PA Andie in The Devil Wears Prada..?!
So with this in mind we're bringing you Pantone's Colours of the Year for 2016. It has gone with two hues next year, "to reflect our times" which according to the company, "represent a mindset of tranquility and inner peace"
With a drumroll, they are...
Rose Quartz 13-1520 and Serenity Blue 15-3919
We can assume that by late Spring we'll start to see even more in the way of these pastels than usual! Get in before the crowds now!
