Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year – Greenery


Pantone have been launching a Colour of the Year since they announced that Cerulean would be the Colour of the Year in 2000. Their Colour of the Year is a symbolic colour selection which acts as a colour snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

This week, Pantone have announced that their 2017 Colour of the Year is ‘Greenery’. According to Pantone’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment.” They describe the colour as a refreshing and revitalizing shade, which is symbolic of new beginnings.

Pantone Greenery is a versatile shade that can be appropriate across many seasons and can be paired with an array of different colours. Greenery is a colour that can be used in fashion, beauty, product and graphic design applications.

So far in the fashion industry, SS17 collections and their influence on street style has resulted in a lot of outfit combinations featuring the colour, so we have put together our top picks on how to wear Greenery.
