It’s Reigning Purple!

2018 is almost here and the Pantone Color Institute, https://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2018-shop-pantone, has announced the “it” color of the year - Ultra Violet, color 18-3838. This bold color was recently featured in the New York Times, https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/09/style/purple-pantone-color-year.html, in the December 9, 2017 edition.

This spectacular shade brings to mind many things. My birth stone, the color of amethyst. Purple was a favorite color of genius architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Easter holiday is abundant with pastel painted Easter eggs awash with this glorious shade. And, of course, the song “Purple Rain” by the visionary artist of his time, Prince & The Revolution https://g.co/kgs/siq3eH.

At The Vintage Label, we have a gorgeous blouse in the Pantone Color Of The Year Shade - Ultra Violet. It’s a fitted zip front blouse with a double ruffle collar by designer Samuel Dong, https://www.samueldongus.com, as seen on our website, https://thevintagelabel.com/products/samuel-dong-ultra-violet-double-ruffle-zip-front-blouse.

The color, Ultra Violet #18-3838, reigns supreme with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. She wears this shade & variations there of often as seen in the December 17, 2017 edition of Express, https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/893414/Meghan-Markle-Queen-Kate-Middleton-Christmas-Sandringham-royal-wedding-Prince-Harry.

Purple is one of those colors where there is no gray area - you either love it or you don’t! It’s a color that stirs emotion in all of us. So, go ahead and add a bit of the Pantone color Ultra Violet to your 2018 wardrobe and you’ll be sure to spark a bit of lively conversation all around!

Cheers to a colorful New Year,

Carolyn
