We’re here for Pantone’s 2020 Colour of the Year

It’s that time of year again! Not just because it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but because The Pantone Color Institute has announced its incoming Colour of the Year!

The Pantone Color Institute is a fundamental resource for designers and creatives across the globe – mapping out the world of colour and forecasting global trends for fashion, lifestyle and interior use. Each year, the institute selects its top trend colours for the coming season and one colour to rule them all – the Pantone colour of the year.

And this year, the winner is


Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of The Pantone Color Institute, explains its selection; “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on”.

And just for the record, we’re right with ya Leatrice!

We are living for this classic, rich blue.

We LOVE this colour’s ability either to make a bold statement or to inspire that feeling of being cool, calm and collected. It effortlessly stands alone or pairs well with ebony, orange, fuchsia and gold for a range of bold colour schemes.

Let us take you back for a moment to our 2019 Milan trend report, where we picked Cobalt Blue as a big colour for the incoming season. Our buying team – with their finger well and truly on the pulse – picked this beautiful blue as a feature colour in our latest Miami range.
