Pantone Colours of 2020
Pantone is pretty fucking iconic in the world of design. Not just fashion, although they heavily influence it, but also interiors and art too- their colour palettes are gorgeous and knowledgable- an in-depth exploration into the current seasons most important colours.
They are published in the 'Colour Trend Report' by Pantone Colour institute, the trend forecasting and colour consultancy guide.
This collection was released in conjunction with NY Fashion Week earlier this month, which essentially sets the scene for where the colours and therefore trends are heading. When this filters down through the system (as Miranda Priestly so fabulously sets out in the Devil Wears Prada), these colours will be everywhere in 6-9 months time. It's a fantastic way of learning and getting to grips with the trends of next season!
"According to Pantone Colour Institute colour experts, colours for Spring/Summer 2020 New York express our desire for a sense of the familiar. Friendly and relatable, a palette of colours that conveys a sense of ease. At the same time, in this era of personalized self- expression, this palette of recognized favourites uses the familiar to take some unique twists and turns highlighting elements of humour, modernity and entertainment."
“Combining our desire for stability, creativity, and more spontaneous design approaches, the colour palette for Spring/Summer 2020 infuses heritage and tradition with a colourful youthful update that creates strong multi-coloured combinations as well as energizing and optimistic pairings,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.
