12 of the most fashionable colors of spring-summer of 2018

The Pantone Color Institute for the first time expanded the list of fashionable colors of the season from 10 to 12. All of them were most pronounced in the spring-summer collections presented at the New York Fashion Week, as well as London and Milan shows at the end of last year.

Colors are absolutely self-sufficient. Anyone can be used as a separate accent in the wardrobe: he can highlight the purse, scarf, shoes, locks of hair. And can become the basis of a completely monochrome, but from that no less than a live dress.

1. Ultra Violet

Experts called Ultra Violet the main color of the year. A saturated, cosmic violet, as if glowing from the inside, is an important element in the new collections of many designers.

This is the real color of the future, which is about to come. It is a bridge from modern technology to flying into another galaxy. Ultraviolet is a symbol of creative self-expression, mysticism and spiritual qualities.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

The future in the context of fashion-2018 is a provocative phenomenon. Therefore, ultraviolet designers see either monochrome – the only color in the outfit, or in the frame of no less bright shades, for example red, orange, silver, piercing green or bright yellow.
