Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.
Hello Fellas! How you doin? If you’re reading this is because either you clicked a direct link or the Read More button already! I thought I’d be a bit mysterious this time and not give away too much with the intro this time! But as you might have noticed, today we’re talking about the color of 2018! It is called Ultra Violet, for us, designers, it’s called 18-3838. I must say front head I’m not happy, and I probably won’t be using in any other ways besides my lipsticks, but it’s my job to let you know Purple is the new Black!
About 18-3838 TCX | The Color of The Year
The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today. – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute
It is a blue based purple that analogous to originality, ingenuity, visionary and reflective thinking, spiritualism, intuitive and connective thoughts and manners. It is associated with mindfulness practices that can offer an escape from this overwhelming world we live in to those who look for it! It is a mysterious shade that provides guidance to what’s yet to come and inspires the desire to pursue exploring the unknown night sky that’s ahead of us! We live in a world that demands inventiveness and imaginative minds and Ultra Violet brings the possibility to explore technologies and new artistic expressions along with the thought of awareness and potential to a higher level!
The Color of The Year | Fashion Wise
After a brief presentation on what this color actually means, lets get to business and what really matters to this space – Fashion! I’m not gonna elongate too much as I feel like this is a post that deserves a lot of information through pictures! Therefore, I gathered a few, from local stores I attend much like Zara and H&M, and some more from what has already been presented on the catwalk! You’ll see it all here, so get ready!
But before the ‘show’ I just wanna say I’m not very happy with this year’s choice for the color of the year. I understand studies were taken, and multiples reflections were made upon what was going to be the most trendy. I personally don’t appreciate purple much, when in clothing, and this is one of those times I feel like I’m not gonna be very fashionable. At least this wise. Lucky me there’s an entire palette of must haves for each season! On the other hand, I must say I absolutely love purple lipsticks. Bit contradictory I know, but it’s a really good shade for winter lips! With that said, I’ll leave you with the pictures!
