After 2018's Colour Of the Year Ultraviolet, Pantone announces the chosen hue for 2019: Living Coral. The shade, a result of extensive trend research by the brand, is said to be a colour that "welcomes and encourages joyful activity, symbolising our innate need for optimism and playful expression". 

The influence comes from the seabed, fishes and corals, which convey a soft and yet vibrant vibe. It's the perfect mix between the current life - one that's always connected and active, and at the same time searching for inner peace.




On the spring/summer 2019 runways, the tone appeared in fashion shows such as Prada , Brandon Maxwell and Franz Elisabetta. For the upcoming fashion season, we're sure to see more looks coordinated with the It-shade of 2019.
