ILLUMINATING AND ULTIMATE GRAY - PANTONE 2021

For over 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design. 
As every year Pantone announces the ‘it’ colour for the coming year, and this year it is: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. It's not the first time that Pantone choosed a mix of two colours, the colours chosen for 2016 if I remember correctly were the Rose Quarz (a light and delicate pink) and Serenity (a light blue). 
 But for this year a marriage of this colour conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting. Two independent colours that highlight how different elements come together to support one another, best express the mood for Pantone Color of the Year 2021. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, the union of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is one of strength and positivity. 
It is a story of colour that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly. A message of happiness supported by fortitude, the combination of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is aspirational and gives us hope. We need to feel that everything is going to get brighter – this is essential to the human spirit. PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation. 
The colours of pebbles on the beach and natural elements whose weathered appearance highlights an ability to stand the test of time, Ultimate Gray quietly assures, encouraging feelings of composure, steadiness and resilience. A combination of colour whose ties to insight, innovation and intuition, and respect for wisdom, experience, and intelligence inspires regeneration, pressing us forward toward new ways of thinking and concepts.

TRIBUTO A PIERRE CARDIN

 

A 98 anni in un letto dell'ospedale americano a Neuilly-sur-Seine, appena fuori Parigi, è morto Pierre Cardin. Il suo corpo ci ha lasciato, ma il nome, che da uomo visionario quale è stato, continuerà ad accompagnare miriadi di prodotti che il designer italo/francese ha brandizzato. Anticipatore di tutti i tempi, nel 1959 fu espulso dalla Camera Sindacale della moda(poi riammesso), per aver lanciato per primo a Parigi una collezione realizzata per i grandi magazzini Printemps. Ma Pierre Cardin verrà ricordato soprattutto per la sua moda futuristica. Le forme geometriche dei suoi abiti, molte volte rese in tessuti artificiali come il vinile, il plexiglass, la lamina d'argento, e una silhouette che spesso ignorava le forme femminili, precorritrice della moda unisex, faranno dei capi di Monsieur Cardin dei pezzi da esporre al Moma. Faranno la storia della moda il suo iconico "bubble dress", la collezione "Cosmocorps", i "roller pants". Nel 1969 la NASA gli commissiona perfino una tuta spaziale. E pensare che agli albori della sua carriera è primo sarto da Christian Dior, la cui estetica è quanto più lontana dalla sua. Appassionato di arte in ogni sua forma dal teatro alla pittura, l’appellativo di ‘designer’ gli stava stretto, Pierre Cardin è, e rimarrà, un’icona insaziabile di creatività e innovazione.
