NEWS: Pantone 2019 Color of the Year

PANTONE, the authority on all things color has released it's 2019 Color of the Year - Living Coral. It looks very similar to this hair and makeup shown below, although a tad less vibrant.

This color was present in many runway shows at fashion week, and it is expected to start popping up this year on anything from fashion to home decor. The official statement from Pantone reads: 

“Just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.” 

These predictions sort of become a self fulfilling prophesy, as many designers tend to lean on Pantone for color advise. Many designers have already put this color into their collections, and pastel hues were popping pretty hard over the summer, so not a surprise to see Living Coral as the pick of choice.
