In 2018, Wear Purple

The Pantone Color Institute unveils the 2018 Color of the Year: ultra violet

Every year since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute has chosen a color that reflects the current cultural climate. In the following year, the color has historically influenced trends in all facets of design — architecture, interior décor and fashion, as well as food, materials, travel, sports and technology.

This year, it’s Pantone 18-3838 ultra violet. A dramatically provocative purple shade, ultra violet communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking.
