If you remember back a few a months, I posted about predictions for Pantone Colour forecast for 2016. 

Well announcements have been made.
This year Pantone gone all out with a combination of two colours, a first for the institution.

Ok so not ‘Deep Peacock Blue’ 😦

Not even close LOL!!!!

These year’s shades are a softer then the last few previous options. They reflect the current trends for soft light pastels, like ‘Blush’.

These colours merge the warmth of rose tones with cool blue. Used together, they produce a feeling of serenity and calmness that Pantone see as an ‘antidote to modern day stresses’.

They also see it as a reflective of current pushes in better gender equality and the blurring of the sexes within the world of fashion. For Pantone, it represents a generational break from stereo-typing and reflects open communication.

More information can be found on the Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 website.

P.S they also have a handy bunch of colour pairings that work well with both choices 🙂

What do you think?? Yay or Nay???
