One of the most anticipated colours was undoubtedly this year 2021, since 2020 was a completely atypical year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

And this year 2021 two colours were chosen: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating yellow, and according to Pantone, their combination expresses a message of strength, resilience and hope.

According to Nick Bazarian, senior product manager for digital business at Pantone, More than just a trend, Pantone's colour of the year is also a reflection on the changes and needs of the moment:

“The colour of the year is very much a statement of how the world is feeling.”, Adds Nick.

So, let's check how this colour appeared on the catwalks reinforcing this trend for the next winter season 22?
