Color of the year 2019: Living Coral
Every year Pantone Color Institute deeply analyses fashion trends, catwalks and our society to decide which color will better represent the year to come. In 2019, Pantone’s colore experts claimed LIVING CORAL as the color of the year, the one color that will best represent our evermore changing society.
With the color code 16-1546, here’s how Pantone describes this tonality:
an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge
and we totally agree.
Vibrant, yet mellow and sweet, Living Coral is color that embraces us with its warmth and encourages us with its dynamism.
It symbolizes our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits and our desire for playful expression.
Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.
Personally, I really like Living Coral, especially its contrast with last year’s color. Living Coral is a breath of natural joy and real life: were Ultraviolet led us inside our own being, asked us to look into our spirits and seek for truth there, Living Coral is asking us to focus all our attention to the reality that surround us, without trying to scare us. It evokes Spring flowers, exotic birds and, of course, the beauty of the underwater world.
Under the sea
This palette isn’t made by my usual go-to colors, but something about it caught my eye and I couldn’t just move on without showing it to you.
I always was a mermaid at heart, so the name of this palette already does half the job in winning me over. Perfect for Summer, when your skin is glowy and sun kissed, Under the sea is the palette to look at to spread energy and dynamism. We see the return of Limpet Shell, paired with 2019’s color of the year, creating a Summer child effect. Let yourself be inspired by this palette while deciding for your Summer wardrobe and your bikini collection. Turkish Sea seems the perfect color for a pair of statement earrings, while Blue Depths should be your “black” during Summer.
What are your thoughts on Living Coral? Are you a fan? Or you would rather wear the mysterious and introspective Ultraviolet? Are you looking forward to see this color on lips and cheeks? Will you be inspired by Living Coral palettes?
