Ultra Violet – Pantone Colour of the Year 2018

A lavishly luxurious colour palette

Vibrant, rich and decadent, we already love the luxurious Ultra Violet Pantone Colour of the Year for 2018. Full of promise and mystery, Pantone have described this ‘dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade’ as ‘inventive and imaginative’, lighting ‘the way for what’s to come’. And we definitely can’t wait to see what’s to come this year.
