Pantone® is the gold standard in colour matching – without it, we would all be walking around blindly muttering that shops clearly don’t know what the shade “indigo” is. And imagine the mass confusion when a manufacturer orders 3,000 aquamarine tops, only to open up the boxes and find piles of, gasp, navy blue?! The horror! The fact of the matter is every industry needs a standard – a base – and this is especially significant in the fashion industry, where colours, patterns, and textures are all kings.
The Spring season brings about a cooler and softer colour palette, with colours generally taking cues from nature. In terms of blue, the main players are aquamarine, scuba blue, and classic blue. In an ode to the Pantone® mecca, we thought it only fitting to show our best picks for the cool shades of blue. Take a look!
