Bustling with energy, passion, adventure and luxury, the Pantone Color of the Year 2018 is UltraViolet. Moving from natural green to the very youthful and high-spirited hue, stock your closet with all shades of violet. According to the pioneers of design and printing industry, the New Jersey-based Pantone’s founder explains that UltraViolet is the color of universal language. This is because the color composition of ultraviolet is too high and it’s difficult to see the actual color with a naked eye.
Pantone’s founder Lawrence Herbert further added that ultraviolet is the color beyond the cosmos and intrigues us of the limitless possibilities in the universal spectrum. Having said that, we’re sure to experiment and bring to the new-age milenials, fashion with experimentation.
