Spotted on the catwalk: Pantone's colors of the year 2021

The colors Ultimate Gray and Illuminating have been named by Pantone as
the colors of the year 2021. A cheerful ‘Illuminating’ yellow and a cool
gray, ‘Ultimate Gray’, which when combined create an “ambitious color
combination,” explains Pantone, “combining deeper feelings of
thoughtfulness with the optimistic promise of a sunny day”. The two colors
have been selected to symbolize unity and stability, and to give people a
way to “fortify themselves with energy, clarity and the hope of overcoming
constant uncertainty.”

Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow spotted in the new fashion collections
We spot illuminating yellow in the SS21 collections of Dolce & Gabbana,
Prada, Etro, Versace, Elie Saab and Akris, among others. The yellow hue is
also frequently used in the (pre) -fall 2021 collections. Spotted at
Balenciaga, Salvatore Ferragamo, Jil Sander, Moschino Donna, Dior and Oscar
de la Renta.

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute,
said in a statement: “The selection of two independent colors highlights
how different elements come together to convey a message of strength and
hope that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it is not
about one color or about one person, it is about several. ”The union of a
lasting ‘Ultimate Gray’ with the vibrant yellow ‘Illuminating’ expresses a
positive message, supported by constancy. Practical and rock-solid, but at
the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that
gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and lifted up,
this is essential to the human spirit. ”

Both colors appeared last September in the New York Fashion Week and
London Fashion Week SS21 shortlists of the color institute.
