Every year has its colour! The first months of the year often mark a quest for novelty, a need for change. The ideal time to find inspiration and refresh your wardrobe.
What colours will you choose in 2019?
Today, we are taking stoke with you of the colour palette for the year 2019.
16-1546: colour and joy of living
When fall ends and the first snowflakes emerge, Pantone reveals its colour of the year. Like the famous styling agencies, their study is based on socio-demographic analyzes, current fashion trends, the use of new technologies (including community web platforms), and the observation of different artists, and cultural fields. This Pantone code is not chosen randomly from their database or invented from scratch by a graphic designer somewhat inspired.
For those who have already followed the "great" revelation, Living Coral is the Pantone’s colour for 2019. Both warm and mischievous, it is a symbol of simplicity, authenticity and intimacy, and it highlights the human qualities of those who wear it.
"Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color" says Pantone at the end of 2018.
Warm tones all year long
The sun is missing, and the temperatures do not seem to want to go back up. However, this year, the yellow-orange tones will be trendy, no matter the whims of the weather!
But first of all, before getting to the heart of the matter, let's remember the difference between a warm colour and a cool colour. Depending on how yellow or blue your hue is, you will get either a so-called "hot" colour (with a higher percentage of yellow) or a "cool" colour (with a higher percentage of blue).
That is up-to-date about warm and cool colours.
To get back to our oranges, our colours of predilection are therefore of the "hot" type. Tangerine, Poppy, Amber or even Saffron: a wide choice is available to you. And that, all skin complexions included! We sweep away prejudices attributing warm colours only to the dark and brown skins.
However, be sure to respect a good colour ratio. To qualify a powerful combination of colours, it is possible to go in small touches or to marry them with more mature tones, such as beige, brown or khaki.
Denim was very present on the catwalks during the 2018-2019 fashion shows, in all its forms, seams and shades.
This Serge cotton twill fabric is characterized in particular by its Indigo-dyed colour. A deep blue, which, in the raw state, reveals a personality that is both captivating and soothing.
Specialists in fabrics and apparels and other fashion experts will prove that all the upsides of denim stem from its ability to evolve and last long. Indigo remains timeless and does not age - such a good wine vintage. It knew how to cross the times and travel from civilization to civilization without losing its character.
This blue, declined in many shades reflects the infinity of the sea and the sky. It opens the doors of a world full of possibilities to the one that knows how to wear it.
"Indigo is the new black". Sober, elegant and simple, the colour also reveals the precious that remains in us. Like a wise man who would reveal the secrets of our dreams, and explain the great mysteries of life, this colour awakens our authenticity and expresses the best of ourselves.
Intense and profound, its meanings and its symbolism are at once prodigious and mysterious. Indeed, indigo is endowed with soothing and relaxing properties, which refer to the field of reverie and zenitude.
We suggest wearing this shade of blue in small touches - for those who cannot master the art of a total look. With what do we marry it? Neutral shades, such as white or beige, ideal for enhancing the colour.
The big names in fashion offer us indigo in its patchwork version. Will you opt for it?
In a neutral tone
Neutral shades will still be in effect. White, black, or gray marry perfectly with more intense colours - like indigo blue or coral.
In many cultures, white has become a symbol of purity, innocence and perfection. The "colour" inspires a perfect balance between simplicity and refinement. Worn during religious ceremonies, it also reflects belonging, unity and community.
Black plays the role of authority and imposes itself with strength and durability in the world of fashion. "Dressed in black, never out of style." Became inevitable and timeless of catwalks, it reflects elegance.
A more "mature" shade, it is appreciated by men and women of all ages.
Black goes with all colours. Our suggestion: you could pair it up with a warm or pale colour to bring out its characteristics.
Finally, the grey colour - which is a mix of black and white - has traced its own path and has made a beautiful place in fashion and decoration.
The shades of grey with a high percentage of white are provided with soothing properties and demonstrate a certain mark of softness.
Dark greys are more sober, with features similar to black.
When choosing your 2019 colour palette, be sure to find a balance between the many dualities that shape your personality. Because you are a unique individual, with many treasures, just waiting to reveal themselves.
