Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018: Ultra Violet!

If you have been reading my blog for the last little while, you will remember I did a week-long feature of the Pantone Institute’s predictions for the top ten colours of this past Fall 2017.  If you missed it, you can read it here.  Well, a new year is upon us, and The Pantone Colour Institute has chosen their colour of 2018… Ultra Violet!

“The Pantone Color of the Year 2018, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, is a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade. It communicates originality, ingenuity, and the visionary thinking we are seeking to create a meaningful direction for our future. Complex and contemplative, this creative, reflective and magical blue-based purple suggests the mysteries of the cosmos and the intrigue of what lies ahead in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination.”  (Description courtesy of the Pantone website.)

I have always loved rich purple hues.  I find it to be luxurious and a colour that everyone can wear.  I have collected some articles of clothing and accessories in this gorgeous shade if you are wanting to introduce it into your existing wardrobe for 2018!
