Spring green is officially the colour of 2017 and we are already in love with it! The Pantone Color Institute, which follows the trends in fashion, design, the car industry and consumer goods, announced it as the dominant colour for the up-coming year.
PANTONE® 15-0343 Greenery (as the official name of the colour is) is a bright, rich foliage green shade, which strongly reminds us of spring and brings joy to everyone who takes a look at it. “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize and unite, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose. The tangy yellow-green speaks to our desire to express, explore, experiment and reinvent, imparting a sense of buoyancy. Through its reassuring yet assertive vibrancy, Greenery offers us self-assurance and boldness to live life on our own terms, during a time when we are redefining what makes us successful and happy.”
This green combines in a great way with all the other colours, including Rose Quartz and Serenity, which were the colours of 2016. Match it with clothes in bright or metallic colours, or neutral and pastel shades, and you could be absolutely reassured that you are going to look refreshed and spectacular.
For seventeen years now, Pantone colour choices and decisions have had a significant say in the innovations of many industries. Inspired by the bloom the colour of 2017 brings to life, we have looked for its application in fashion, interior design and decorative cosmetics.
