The Pantone colors of the year: Illuminating yellow and Ultimate Gray

Two fashion colors that the Pantone Institue launched to convey a message of strength and hopefulness
Usually, the Pantone Institute chooses one color of the year, but this time, after the uncertainty of the pandemic, they decided to convey a strong message through this double choice.

Hope and resilience. Lemon yellow and Gray. The first one is a lemony yellow that recalls the sun kissing your skin, the second one is a soft shade of grey that evokes peace and comfort. These two independent colors that come together to create an aspirational color pairing, conjoining thoughtfulness with the optimistic promise of a sunny day.

They are called PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating and PANTONE® 17-5104 Ultimate Gray.

“The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock-solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.” LeatriceEiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says.

PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation. The colors of pebbles on the beach and natural elements whose weathered appearance highlights an ability to stand the test of time, Ultimate Gray quietly assures, encouraging feelings of composure, steadiness and resilience.
