Dictating annually which shade will be the new millennial pink, the Pantone Colour Of The Year is the Miranda Priestly of the design world. Following last year’s futuristic Ultra-Violet, 2019’s hue of Living Coral, an ‘animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone’, is all about our long overdue obsession with global sustainability. Namely, the coral reefs.
‘We get energy from nature,’ a statement from Pantone reads. ‘Just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant yet mellow Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.’
Thankfully for beauty fans, Living Coral also looks epic on your lips, cheeks, eyes, well, everywhere. Just make sure those products are earth and animal-friendly, people.
