The New York and London Fashion Week runways were awash with bold colour as they prominently featured Pantone’s spring 2019 colour trends. A huge step away from last year’s bright pastel colours to bring in a fiery and classic one to take its place. According to Pantone this new palette is intended to induce “playful professionalism” and “encourage an unrestrained and experimental approach to colour”.

There are fourteen colours on the Pantone spring 2019 colour trend report with a further four neutral hues that Pantone Colour Institute’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, deems to be “the glue that holds everything together”.  

We should see some creative and unthought of colour combinations this season with these bold colours, as Eiseman aptly describes the palette as a “'joyful juxtaposition of colour that transcends seasonality” and as being “dynamic and vibrant without being overpowering”.


What’s behind these empowering hues?

Spring and Summer are seasons fraught with abundance and confidence, and these joyful colours play their part as the ultimate uplifters. The playfulness of being able to match unexpected colours together in both fashion and home decor will open up a world of possibility this season.


The palette highlights 12 stand out colours; namely Fiesta, Jester Red, Turmeric, Living Coral, Pink Peacock, Pepper Stem, Aspen Gold, Princess Blue, Toffee, Mango Mojito, Terrarium Moss, and Sweet Lilac. The neutrals, or classics, that tie them all together are Soybean, Eclipse, Sweet Corn, and Brown Granite. These work well on their own but are fantastic as a foundation for stark colour contrasts.


According to Elle Magazine, the runways of NYFW still showed a leaning towards neon brights, and a renewed interest in sunny Marigold. Interesting to note that Tie Dye is getting a lot of interest this season as well as Sheer fabrics.


From the runway to your packaging

It’s a new year and you’re probably looking at your packaging and thinking it could use a dash of the whimsy from one of the eye-catching sixteen mentioned above. Perhaps, if you are bold enough to match some together in the shape of ribbons to create a striking and altogether fresh look for your boxes.

We have matched up our colours so that you can get your hands on the SS19 colour palette in ribbon, see below to find great matches for the colours you are looking for:

When it comes to controversial trends, neon colour shades usually top the list. They are too bold to wear every day and too bright to pass unnoticed. Neon first came into fashion in the 1980s along with the development of technologies in dyeing fabrics: the latest developments in that era allowed to experiment with the most unusual hues, including glowing neon. In the 1980s, fluorescent colours were trendy in sportswear, and the typical aerobics instructor felt obliged to put on something acid yellow or bright pink.
