How does one come to decide the color of the year you ask? Yeah, we were curious too.
The color of the year selection requires careful consideration and, to arrive at the selection, Pantone quite literally combs the world looking for color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films that are in production, traveling art collections, hot new artists, popular travel destinations and other socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from technology, availability of new textures and effects that impact color, and even upcoming sports events that capture worldwide attention.
Expect to see RADIANT ORCHID across beauty, fashion and interior trends in the coming months.
