Pantone announces new color styles every year. While the fashion world was still obsessed with Marsalad red, Pantone unprecedentedly introduced two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, as the colors of 2016 at the end of last year. Once Pantone chooses the colors, they will be widely used by all design related industries. As they represent the zeitgeist of the year, these colors can resonate among around the world.
Do not simply consider them as pink and pink blue. The Rose Quartz is a kind of soft pink, standing for tenderness, while the Serenity is just as tranquil and steady as the blue sky. The two quiet colors demonstrate an inherent balance and seem to be in perfect match. Just by looking at them you can feel comfortable and cozy. The two-color combination was already used in the 2016 spring & summer fashion week.
They can be applicable in various types of surface materials such as matte, metallic and glossy. Whether you apply them to the soft or hard materials, the Rose Quartz and Serenity are still luxurious and classy girl colors, reflecting a soothing sense of order and peace.
