The Colour of 2018

The Colour of 2018

We are already one month into the new year, and with the new year will come new trends and styles. Fashion trends of 2018 are currently being announced by all the big retailers ready for the spring/summer collection. You might be reluctant to put away your coats and hats at the moment, but the nights are getting lighter, and the weather is getting warmer (very slowly). It’s not just about the clothes and garments that are currently trending, but often there is a colour that is growing in popularity too, a colour of the year – which this year is ultra violet!

Pantone describes ultra violet as a “provocative and thoughtful purple shade” that embodies individuality and spirituality. Pantone is the masterminds behind the colour of the year, and this year has carefully selected Ultra Violet (18-3838) as the colour of 2018. The colour chosen is not just picked up on by fashionistas, but it diverts into other markets such as furniture, architecture, interior design, set design and even art and entertainment.

You may suddenly start to notice the clothing racks are filled with purple garments, furniture stores suddenly become a sea of violet and even TV shows are featuring the colour far more than before. “We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

We are pleased to be supporting this new trend, and have a range of violet garments to keep you in style! Be on trend in 2018 and shop now.
