What’s the Colour for 2013?

You know how every year has an official/unofficial colour? Well here’s a newsflash: they’re not made up. And for 2013, Pantone has a new tone.

Thus, next year’s big colour will be (DRUMROLL): Emerald.

Pantone is an authority on colour since it works closely with design industries, so the announcement is actually official. 

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director at the Pantone Color Institute. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal, and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”

She can say that again! Sephora and Pantone have already paired up for Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013 Colour of the Year Beauty Collection, featuring the colour (technically 17-5641 Emerald), and will be available in March 2013. 

Several fashion designers have also paired with Pantone for their own designs, so you can bank on this time next year, our retrospective on 2013’s biggest and most prevelent colour. Congratulations, Emerald! (If you can hear us.)
