Dolce & Gabbana Bags for ZALORA


A softer take on color for 2016: For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity are chosen as the PANTONE Color of the Year. Rose Quartz  matching with Dolce & Gabbana Bag collection.

As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.


The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association.

In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.

Happy New Year dear readers!

As my first post for 2014, it is important (but not always) to know whats in trend for the color of the year.

Following 2013’s Emerald Green, Pantone is suggesting Radiant Orchid  as the shade that summarises the overall colour trends of 2014.

The rosy pink (aka Pantone 18-3224) represents a healthy glow, making projects that use it appear more energetic, says Pantone. The colour system developer sees it being combined with reds for a seductive look, or accented with similar shades of lavender, purple and pink – or contrasted with deep greens or turquoise.


Pantone says its sees the colour being used to these ends across fashion, beauty and interiors – as well as advertising, graphic design and art. It notes the colour appears in the spring collections of fashion labels such as Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan, Juicy Couture and Yoana Baraschi.

We’re going to take Pantone’s interpretation with a pinch of salt though, as Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute describes its choice of the 2013 Colour of the Year as a “symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity” – which is an odd thing to apply to a year where the phrase ‘austerity Britain’ was overused to the point of cliché.
