Pantone Announces Its 2019 Color of the Year

And It’s More Than Just Another Pretty Shade of Pink

Pantone Color Institute seeks to send a serious message about the environment with 2019’s hue of pink with golden undertones: Living Coral. In a press release, Pantone says the color “is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color.”

The color offers a glimmer of hope in a dismal reality: coral reefs are being destroyed at an alarming rate. While the color is meant to bring awareness to the plight of the seas, it offers us a rich nurturing hue that has a long history in art and fashion. Coral’s triumphant return has us throwing the warm color on our faces and on our bodies from sneakers to gowns.

Here are some of our favorite pieces that embrace the coral tone:

Chantecaille Coral Cheek Shade
Mansur Gavriel Oversized Shearling Coat
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Starland Sneaks
Stine Goya Silk Gown
Di Pasquale Guthmann Boite No.3 Bag
Senreve Leather Satchel
