2020: The Year Of Classic Blue

2020: The Year Of Classic Blue

Two weeks into the new decade Pantone announce their official colour for 2020 – Classic Blue.

Through seasonal trend forecasting, colour psychology, and global cultural references, Pantone announces a yearly Pantone Colour. Speaking of this year's selected shade, Leatrice Eisman – Executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute, states:

"We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by Pantone Classic Blue, a solid, dependable blue hue that we can always rely on...a boundless blue, evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky."

Expect to see a lot of blues permeating fashion and interiors this year and most importantly, embrace them! Here at The Idle Man we will be following in the wake of Classic Blue, bringing you staple pieces in the dependable hue to add stability and longevity to the foundations of your wardrobe.
