Velvet Eyewear and color of the year

Ultra Violet Pantone Color of the Year 2018

Posted by Cindy Hussey on

Ultra Violet is the Pantone Color of the year for 2018.
We did some fun searching and found the most beautiful images and reminders of this magical color in everything from Elizabeth Taylor's famous violet eyes, to the hippest boho pants. There are rumors of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have a splash or two of this royal 2018 Color of the Year - "Ultra Violet".

Now that that we have shared some of our favorite Violet images, here is what Pantone has to say about the 2018 Color of the Year.

"Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection."
