2018 Pantone® Color of the Year

Pantone’s 2018 Ultra Violet 18-3838 follows 2017’s “Greenery,” which had an earthy feel, and is a reflection of a new beginning. The color Ultra Violet offers the originality and visionary thinking that will take us into the future. Both the fashion and the home décor industries will be embracing this provocative color direction in their designs.

Embrace Ultra Violet

The Color of the Year offers strategic direction around the world. Ultra Violet opens the mind to what lies ahead and beyond. Long a symbol of unconventionality, counterculture icons such as Prince and Jimi Hendrix boldly brought to the forefront purples as a personal expression of their individuality. “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” noted Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. Historically, Ultra Violet has always been considered a mystical or spiritual color. You will see the purple-toned hue in communities that inspire connection, such as meditation spaces and other gathering places.

About Ultra Violet

Ultra Violet leans more toward the blue end of the spectrum than red. While there are still enough red undertones to add passion, it is the touch of periwinkle that makes the cool prevail, lending itself to unique color combinations in fashion. Paired with metallic colors, you think luxurious. Paired with greens, it brings out nature. Perfect for days or evenings, you will see Ultra Violet in everything from eyewear to sneakers.
