Need fashion inspo on how to style the in vogue Pantone color: Very Peri?
Way before Pantone took to social media to announce the color of the year for 2022 last December 9, we saw how Very Peri was already dominating the fashion scene. Was it because many already had an existing affinity for the hue? Or was it the year of BTS—hence, an inevitable following for one of the elements of the phenomenal boy band’s branding? Perhaps the answer lies in what emotions PANTONE 17-3938 evokes. Which begs the question, what does this vogue color represent and transcend beyond its warm facade?
The Pantone Color of the Year 2022, Very Peri, is a fusion of periwinkle blue and violet red undertones. For nearly two years, the whole world has been thrust into a whirlwind of emotions ensued by COVID-19 related events. The fresh hue aims to be the poster color used to challenge the norms, notions and standards we’ve been accustomed to in the pandemic. Its genial tone displays a brightness that can only mean happiness and brighter prospective days. Very Peri is all about lighting a path to something new and boldly rewriting our lives after an intense period of isolation.
Pantone’s color of the year encourages others to move forward with a courageous and daring new curiosity for what lies ahead. Could this be the color that we wave and don as we exit our pandemic-struck cocoons? For now, this peek into the near bright future with “Very Peri” should suffice—here are all the local and int’l celebs who’ve gone ahead and rocked the vogue color fashion-wise.
