Pantone has chosen a “lively periwinkle blue shade” as Pantone’s Color of the Year 2022, describing it as a color of unfettered assurance and bold exploration. According to the worldwide color council, the hue named ‘Very Peri’ casts a fresh perspective on tomorrow.
Carrying on from the colors chosen in the previous two years — the joyful yellow of Luminous and the well-composed Ultimate Grey in 2021, as well as the gloomy sky-like Classic Blue in 2020 — Very Peri symbolizes our coordinated approach to the devastation of the COVID-19 epidemic. The hue represents a relief after a period of severe solitude and awareness of marked differences between the physical and virtual realms.
Aside from being a color utilized in high-contrast games favored among Today’s Generation, the hue has origins in the natural world and in wellness, with lilac, violet, and periwinkle plants providing a relaxing sensation during a stressful moment. Very Peri is also included in a number of beauty and fashion trend forecasts. And here are some ways our fashion influencers are wearing it.
When it comes to the cooler months, you can anticipate that the prediction for fall nail colors will include a tried-and-true combination of black, vivid red, or navy. But, if you absolutely want to appreciate what’s popular, there are more daring shades to try while lacquering up, such as our brand-new very peri.
