This year, the trend spotters at the Pantone Color Institute have chosen PANTONE 19-4052: Classic Blue as a Colour of the Year 2020. From fashion and beauty trends to product and interior designers it seems about each industry takes note of the colour estimate from the world’s most powerful colour system.
A timeless and enduring blue hue, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity. The indigo hue brings to mind both the constant and the classic, the sky at dusk, an impeccably tailored suit, serene waters, or a bowl of perfectly ripe blueberries. Classic Blue, is a welcome refuge for our uncertain, often disconnected era. In a time where public faith in institutions, advertising, and the future is increasingly challenged, many desire a return to trust, authenticity, and empathy. The blue hues, long related to peace, calm, and the daylight sky, feel strong and reliable. It is this constancy and comfort that Classic Blue offers us.
We selected artworks from our collections of limited and open edition photographs that we feel embody best the spirit of the Color of the Year. Get inspired and choose the best one for your favourite place.
