What are Pastel Colours?
“Easy to live with and non-confrontational, this group of calming shades bring people together in unity rather than cause division. A feeling that speaks to the overall philosophy of a generation that prizes inclusivity and sharing. Conveying a message of cleanliness and simplicity, the pastels easily fit into a more minimalist and decluttered design aesthetic, as well as offer a quietness that is soothing to the soul — enduring messages that are especially desirable at this time.” These are the words of Laurie Pressman, Pantone’s vice president.
Personally, when I think of calm, serene and breathtaking colurs, pastel comes to mind. The soft, almost faded hues of otherise vibrant colours just brings me some feeling of ease and calm. In these times when fashion is screaming at it’s loudest, I found a new solace in pastel fashion.
