As tradition goes, Pantone (the color experts), typically name a color of the year. Artists and Fashion experts alike swoop in and buy swatches to use the color as an inspiration for the upcoming season and for their collections. But this year Pantone especially turned heads when they picked not one- but two newly coveted hues. These colors go by the names Rose Quartz & Serenity. Rose Quartz, named after the stone, is a pastel pink while Serenity is an airy blue. Although they are both individually amazing, the true beauty is when they come together. Pantone's Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman says,"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." Also, due to fashion's growing androgyny, the pair of pink and blue creates a "gender blur" and connects to the societal movement of gender equality. In addition to Pantone's tradition, Sephora also teams up with the color company annually to create cosmetics inspired by the new shades. Below are the products that are available...but hurry if you want one because they sell out fast!
Stay Chic ;)
