According to Pantone, next year’s colour is Mimosa or, PANTONE® 14-0848, as it’s known to its friends…
“In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other colour expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow,” Pantone says.
“The colour yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute in a press release. “Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation.”
Mimosa is, apparently, “a versatile shade that coordinates with any other colour, has appeal for men and women, and translates to both fashion and interiors. Look for women’s accessories, home furnishings, active sportswear and ￼men’s ties and shirts in this vibrant hue.”
