Winter is usually grey, but this season has been characterised by bright colours and busy patterns – so what will be the biggest hue for 2022?

In that time, you can usually find me hibernating and wearing practical warm coats and comfy clothes.

What is the colour for 2022?

Pantone color of the year 2022

Pantone have announced that the Color of the Year 2022 is Very Peri, a shade which they created for the first time in the history of the program.

They describe the hue as ‘a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through’ and add: ‘Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.’

The shade was splashed across the SS22 runway at Marques’ Almeida, Lanvin, Todd’s, Valentino, Gucci, Isabel Marant and many more, cementing its top spot for the season ahead.
