This partnership does allow for future collections and collaborations, so if you're a Pantone fan like I am, and a cosmetics junkie, this is exciting news! The inaugural limited edition collection will contain a range of products that include eye shadow, lipstick, lip gloss, nail polish and accessories. Pantone is the global leader on color, and has long been the authority who sets the standard for the fashion and design industry. Their Color of the Year typically starts the trends that are introduced each year in fashion and home design.
About the PANTONE Color of the Year:
The color of the year selection is a very thoughtful process. 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.
For more than a decade, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.
