have you heard? 022 PANTONE REVEALS 2016 COLOR(S!) OF THE YEAR NEW STORE WATCH P ANTONE LLC, an X-Rite company, has named PANTONE 15-3919 Serenity and PANTONE 13-1520 Rose Quartz as the Pantone Color of the Year selection for 2016. This marks the first time the blending of two shades has been given the designation. "With the whole greater than its individual parts, joined together Serenity and Rose Quartz demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness, as well as a soothing sense of order and peace," says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. The combination of Serenity and Rose Quartz also challenges traditional color association for the two shades, inspired by the gender blur that is occurring in fashion in many parts of the world, according to Pantone. "This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumers' increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, which includes a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged, and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage," Eiseman says. - Lauren Mitchell Volker [1] [2] [3] Photo courtesy of PANTONE RDI NY CHAPTER HOLIDAY POP-UP SHOP GIVES BACK T HE RETAIL DESIGN Institute (RDI) New York Chapter hosted a holiday pop-up in New York Dec. 2-6 in the Siegel-Stockman showroom to benefit Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids (DIFFA) and Gift For Life.
