Do you remember December 2018? We’d hope so, given that it was only two months ago. For those of you who drunk so much mulled wine over the festive period that the festive period might as well not have actually happened, Pantone announced back in December that Living Corral was set to be the colour of 2019.
The hue-mad colour-obsessives have now released a fashion-focused trend report as part of New York Fashion Week. Described as, “a colour overview highlighting the top colours fashion designers showing at NY Fashion Week will be featuring in their collections for the upcoming season,” the report suggests that Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 is going to be all about reds, pale pinks, and earthy browns.
These colours, Pantone says, “suggest a thirst for liberation and a desire to realise our own individualised unique identities.”
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute goes on to say that “this palette of versatile hues builds a sense of empowerment and confidence, enabling the wearer to choose the colours that best reflect his or her mood and persona.”
