Pothys Presents Color of the Year

Royal Orchid, a Pinkish Purple has been chosen as the Color of the Year by Pantone.

Pantone, a corporation which is located in New Jersey, is known for its color- matching system and gives companies a common vocabulary to discuss colors. Pantone conducts a poll every year with different companies from around the world to decide on one common color vocabulary.

“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm” is what Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said about the color selection.

Every color they release has its own symbolism, an emotional component, and a deeper meaning of the color too. Radiant Orchid is a regal and enigmatic purple that is derived from nature and a flower of the same name. It has already come up in a variety of applications and was a popular color choice of many fashion designers around the world.

It is a color that falls on the one end of the color wheel with Emerald on the other end. With pink comes an association with love and romance. The feminine color is also symbolic of caring, calmness and acceptance. The same association comes with its lavender undertones as well.  The purple or violet hue is considered regal or royal, noble and spiritual. Darker variances of the color may also indicate wise or honorable.

With a mix of such purple and pink, Pothys offers wide variety of designs in the Radiant Orchid colors, with different color combinations and embellishments to make it even more enchanting. Below are the products in the beautiful hues of Radiant Orchid.
