Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year….

Serenity and Rose Quartz 

Pantone seems to be doing its part to further gender equality, considering its 2016 Color of the Year is a two-fer – Serenity and Rose Quartz.

In other words, soft blue and pale pink will reign supreme next year. In unveiling the 2016 standouts, Pantone noted that “we are experiencing gender blur as it relates to fashion.” Given that, the double billing is meant to be in sync with “societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumers’ increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage that challenge traditional color associations.”

Heavy as that might sound, in recent months an assortment of designers has marched models down the runway in variations of pale pink. Miu Miu, J.W. Anderson, Victoria Beckham, Jil Sander and Roksanda Ilincic have offered their own take on the key color. The soft hue is also aining fans with brides-to-be. This summer, Beatrice Borromeo went with a pale pink Valentino gown to wed Pierre Casiraghi.

On a more mainstream level, a few weeks ago, the much-watched Victoria’s Secret fashion show featured an entire section dedicated to Pink USA. And not ones to miss out on passing trends, Kendall and Kylie Jenner included traces of the pale pink in their debut contemporary collection.

Light blue has also been gaining ground on spring runways like Chanel, in stores and with celebrities like Taylor Swift, Halle Berry and Chanel Iman, who have all worn Serenity as of late. Serenity might be just the balm, if only an aesthetic one, for the ongoing political and economic instability many in the world are facing. According to Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman,“As the name suggests, Serenity is a calming color that plays to the whole idea that we know we’re still living in turbulent times. Blues simply relay that feeling of relaxation.
