Ultra Violet is Pantone’s aptly-named color of the year, and we can’t wait to see this trend in full swing this year. Expect to see lots of lavender and violet hues, from clothes, shoes and accessories, to paint and home décor.
As seen on the Spring / Summer 2018 runways at Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors, Sies Marjan and Tibi, shades of purple, periwinkle and lilac will be big news in 2018.
With Gucci and Prada regularly showcasing pencil skirts, the Italian set usually have the stranglehold on sassy refinement. But this season the Fifties wardrobe staple truly went global with Balenciaga, Hermès, and Off-White all basing their main collections around the pencil skirt.
