Color of the Year 2016 by Pantone and comments from the Fashion Astrology point of view
On December 3, 2015 the company Pantone announced Color of the Year 2016. For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz (PANTONE 13-1520) and Serenity (PANTONE 15-3919) as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times. Experts of the company explain their choice in such way. «It’s not like new colors are being invented or created, or even new color combinations. They all already exist somewhere in Nature. There is nothing new under the Sun. All that we can try to do is rearrange and recombine what already exists such that it seems different from what we have grown accustomed to because of what we have previously been doing out of habit.»
In this phrase, we catch a reference to the surrounding phenomena and even the influence of light. It is very common with our author's approach: in fact we draw our information from the positions of the planets. It seems, even just a little bit, and the company Pantone will recognize the possibility of making fashion forecasts using astrology. For example, the project Colorstrology. It is none other than the color of Sun in Zodiac signs, distributed on separate days of the year. Colorstrology creates a personal color for every day of the year that embodies certain characteristics and qualities that help you to understand yourself and navigate the world that surrounds you. According to Michele Bernhardt, «Your birthday color may or may not be your favorite color, but it is a color designed to nurture the real you to recognize, celebrate and honor your own true colors. While your color preferences may change as you evolve, your birthday color remains constant.» This phrase resonates with our approach to the creation of individual colors, in which we use the color samples for each planet in the sign of the zodiac, in full compliance with the birth horoscope. The only difference is that we affirm: these colors are not random, they actually fit you, and you can use them for your wardrobe and for your entourage.
So, the choice is made. Apparently, it was not easy, otherwise would not have been such a delay on the timing and such inaccuracies in the forecast. What is more difficult: to choose one color or two? Earlier I asked a question in relation with the forecast of colors. Of course, one color to choose more difficult than two colors or a whole range of colors. Then one mistake can be not noticed. And in the case a reference may be made, that there was another Color of the Year 2016. Now the majority of consumers are ready to love them. Soon we will paint the walls of our apartments in the trendy colors, change the socket on the phone, buying bed linen and tea sets of these shades. Why do we follow the dictates of the giant companies? Do we have our own opinion, which differs from the opinion of the majority? Who actually creates fashion trends? The company Pantone makes its choice intuitively, relying on the opinion of its experts, and the vote of consumers. As a result, we wear that we have chosen for themselves. I am absolutely convinced that our need for a certain color is influenced by the stars. Yes, this relationship does not lie on the surface. To understand it, you have to strain a bit and go beyond the stereotypical thinking. We spent a lot of years to identify the algorithm. Now it is clearly formulated and tested in practice.
Color of the Year 2015, according to the company Pantone, is Marsala. Color of the Year 2015 by Fashion-Astrology.com is indigo. You can compare for yourself which of these colors was more popular in the past year.
Recall more recent forecasts. In our opinion, Color of the Year 2016 is only one color, we would have called it «Tenderness». It is a soft shade of pink, which refers to Venus and Libra sign.
