Pantone has released their colour of the year for 2019 and here at Fashion North, we love it.

Pantone’s colour of the year, every year, influences many decisions in the industry, whether it’s home furnishing, fashion, beauty, or even packaging.

So what is the colour of the year?

Pantone states that: “The Colour of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s colour experts at the Pantone Colour Institute comb the world looking for new colour influences.

“This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention.”

With the past two colours of the year being Greenery in 2017 and UltraViolet in 2018, 2019 is mixing it up with a warm, nourishing, bright tone to spruce up the year.


Reminiscing warm tones of nature, Pantone states: “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.”
