Pantone Colour of the Year 2020
Iconic colour company, Pantone, has once again announced their colour of the year. The official colour of the year for 2020 is: Classic Blue (19-4052). Pantone’s Colour of the Year is always highly anticipated, as it’s sure to feature heavily in all things fashion and design for the next 12 months. However, there is some controversy over this choice, with critics claiming that it’s a misstep and a safe choice. A lot of people in the design world are disappointed that this new decade isn’t a pastel green colour. Innately linked to nature, pastel green is a relaxing soothing tone, so it’s understandable that people want 2020 to feel this way. We all love a nice green shade, but at AC Silver, we think Classic Blue is the right choice for this year.
Let us show you why.
Classic Blue Sapphires
Pantone Colour of the Year 2020 reminded us immediately of our vast selection of richly coloured sapphires. This shade, a stunningly rich, comforting blue, is set to be the colour that takes us across the threshold into a new era and decade. According to Pantone, Classic Blue is ‘elegant in its simplicity’. At AC Silver, we couldn’t agree more, as Classic Blue made us think of our own beautiful blues. From topaz to tourmaline, opals to aquamarines, blues are beyond beautiful in so many sensual shades. The blue most suited to Classic Blue, however, is sapphires.
While sapphires cover a huge variety of shades, a common – and frequent favourite – is the deep and rich Classic Blue. Pantone states that Classic Blue ‘brings a sense of peace and tranquillity’, and it’s easy to see why when you look at the way these gemstones dazzle in the light. A ‘solid’ and ‘dependable’ colour, Classic Blue is the perfect way to sit back, relax, and plan the best ways to unwind with some stunning blue gemstones this year.
Every year, Pantone has an insight into what colours will play a big part in the year to come. This year, we enter a new decade with the sensory stability that Classic Blue provides. Colours as rich as this one are luxurious, and luxury brands are sure to touch on this Classic Blue hue. Perhaps the infamous AC Silver orange will even give way! Only time will tell. Are you ready for a Classic Blue year?
