We do not want to prolong anymore and that is why we are going to write about the colour of 2018. According to the Istitude of Pantone it is going to be Ultra Violet. Speaking more accurately it will be a colour with numer 18-3838. Is it surprising? Hitherto, violet has been the colour of aristocracy for many years. We do not need to think about this fact a lot, because we can just look at the clothes of the Queen Elizabeth II. The idea of choosing violet as the colour of the year may be connected with the intention of transferring violet from palaces to the streets and making it more popular among ordinary people. After all, princess Kate is now considered to be one the biggest fashion icons, the same as Meghan Markle. As it is commonly known, everything that is worn by them becomes hit. The dresses that princess Kate wears, disappears from high-street shops in the blink of an eye. Perhaps violet will occur to be successful, too. It is also important that lavender is an alternative for such a vivid colour as violet and it actually occurs in the collections of the best fashion designers around the world. This fact may mean a new way of perceiving violet.
The head of the department responsible for defining, consulting and discussing colours explains the reason for choosing violet to be the colour of 2018 as follows: "The intuitive Ultra violet shows the way to things that are going to happen from using new technologies and exploring other galaxies to artistic expression and the reflection of the soul". It can definitely be said that violet is a magical and complex colour. What is more, it is intriguing and fascinating. After the vivid colour of 2017, which was green, violet is certainly a big change. It is a very challenging colour not only when it comes to fashion, but also the interior design of houses or flats. We are willing to see the interiors of livings rooms or kitchens with violet in the centre of them. The more we think about this, the easier we can say that after a lot of white and black interiors of our houses or flats it is good to use something different and refreshing. How about violet?
