Kindling feelings of warmth and belonging, Peach Fuzz effortlessly marries the old with the new
Inspiring a conversation around colour and its cultural ties, the Pantone Color Institute first introduced the Pantone Colour of the Year educational program in 1999. Now an iconic touchstone worldwide, each year’s Pantone colour selection influences industries ranging from fashion and home furnishings to automotive and industrial design.
Embarking on its 25th year, the first Pantone Colour of the Year in 1999 was PANTONE 15-4020 Cerulean Blue and last year’s was Viva Magenta 18-1750. Decided by a team of global colour anthropologists who comb the world for upcoming colour trends, influences can stem from anything and everything that shapes our ever-evolving lifestyle and culture. The naming conventions undergo a similarly thorough process, intuitively selected to conjure up a specific image and feeling.
A globally recognised visual language that requires no words, colour is one of our most powerful communication tools.
Connecting us on both an inner self and community level, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz has been announced as 2024’s Pantone Colour of the Year.
PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz is a tender peach hue that celebrates a message of “caring and sharing, community and collaboration”.
Behind the scenes with PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz
Drawing inspiration from our desire to belong, in both moments of stillness and togetherness, this shade sits between pink and orange with subtle sophistication.
“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”Leatrice Eiseman | Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute™
Beautifully understated yet impactful, Peach Fuzz pays a respectful ode to the past with a refreshing contemporary touch. Reframing how we want to live and setting mindful intentions for the new year, this Pantone Colour of the Year 2024 is a gentle reminder to nurture our inner selves amongst the hustle and bustle of modern life.
