The Pantone Colour Institute highlights the top seasonal runway colours, selects the Pantone Colour of the Year, and forecasts global colour trends. This process has been running since 2000 and requires deep contemplation on colour psychology and trend analysis. 

To reach the selection each year, experts at the Pantone Colour Institute scour the world for new influences: new technologies, art, upcoming media, movies, socio-economic and political conditions, travel destinations, fashion, and lifestyle choices.

For the first time on record, Pantone decided to create a new shade that wasn't already in its existing catalogue of colours. The company blended blue tones with violet-red, reviving gratitude for some of the qualities that blue conveys complemented by a new attitude that resonates today.

Very Peri, described by colour company Pantone as "a periwinkle shade of blue," has been named colour of the year for 2022 and places the future ahead in a new light.

As we emerge from an intense two years in isolation and lockdown, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. The rise in the metaverse and the impact of coronavirus have informed the colour choice this year.
Very Peri takes centre stage, displaying confidence and a daring inquisitiveness that encourages personal originality and creativity. The colour helps us embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening up to a new vision as we enter into this transformative new year.

This year we need to feel encouraged and uplifted - this is essential to the human spirit. But as many continue to battle the Omicron variant and the world enters yet another phase of uncertainty, can Very Peri save us?

The periwinkle shade is used in the high-contrast games prevalent among Generation Z; it's also the colour associated with wellness. With roots in the natural world, with lilac, lavender, and periwinkle plants offering a calming sense during moments of chaos and uncertainty. 

The colour marries the "constancy" of traditional blue with the "energy and excitement" of red. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse, and the rising artistic community in the digital space: Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how colour trends in the digital world manifest in the physical world and vice versa.
