Pantone has release it’s color of the year for 2018 and I’m happy to say it’s a shade of purple. If you were to ask anyone what’s Gaetana’s favorite color they would say purple. I’m super excited it’s this shade instead of a pastelly tone because I’ve been there and done that literally. I’ve had pastel bedroom walls from the time when I was 9-10 then again from 13-17 or 18. With a dark shade of purple for the carpet. Yes, I was one of those. So I can’t wait for all the stores to start stocking this shade of purple. It’s very wearable for all seasons and looks great on everyone.

Patone describes it as “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade. PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

If you remember stars such as Prince, Jimmy Hendrix and David Bowie loved this shade of purple. Even kings. It definitely a shade that expresses individuality. Also emotion, and when a person usually wears this color they’re going to make a mark on the world. (ie:Prince).
