COLOR COLLECTIONS | Very Peri

VERY PERI 3

Our transformative time needs a color that represents visionary transition.

Pantone Color Institute is the worldwide leader in color forecasting and consulting, and each year they name an annual hue that is reflective of world trends in design, art, fashion, film, travel destinations, and other media influences. For the first time, the Pantone Color Institute has created a totally new color for their catalog, Color of the Year: PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri. According to Pantone, Very Peri “helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives.” We’ve been emerging from an intense period of isolation into a more hybridized world. This dynamic new color represents overlapping worlds, approachable with the steadiness of blue yet accentuated by an exciting violet-red undertone. In a world with both a growing virtual space (i.e. the metaverse) and more emphasis on the Earth beneath our feet, this new color capitalizes on possibilities and expansion into new ideas and territories.

COLOR COLLECTIONS | Chalky Neutrals

CHALKY NEUTRALS Look to natural hues for moments of calm and chic dependability— the palette cleanser.

In antithesis to a global landscape of heightened anxiety, the power of these chalky shades lies in their ties to nature— and a minerality that feels like it heals. Taking a cue from unbleached cottons and other earthy textures, these wellness-based neutrals can make people feel more restful, comforted, and calm. As consumers look for simplicity in dressing, monochromatic neutrals are trustworthy on their own or as a minimal base that’s ready for a creative pop of color. In short, this neutral color trend provides natural warmth that feels earthy and grounding despite today’s challenges.

ACID GREEN

Nature with an almost-neon edge.

Generally speaking, greens are making a statement in 2022 as another one of nature’s neutrals. These citrus greens have the power of neon but with an added softness that feels less manufactured. Hues like PANTONE 15-0549 TCX Fragile Sprout make Pantone’s list for Spring/Summer 2022, inspired by runways at London Fashion Week and designers like Valentino and Christian Siriano. This super contemporary use of green in home decor, fashion, and product is visually arresting, playful, creative, and full of unconstrained expression in these uncertain times.

COLOR COLLECTIONS | Pink

HOT PINK + ORCHID + FUCHSIA Intense magenta captures our appetite for delight and positivity.

Expect pigmented pinks to have major commercial appeal in 2022 for all genders and generations. According to a report from international trend forecaster WGSN and Coloro’s color systems, saturated pinks like Orchid Flower are popular for their bold expression; in fact, “dopamine dressing” is a growing trend in fashion, a movement defined by these happy brights. With positively energizing qualities, these pinks are standing out in digital and real-life settings with joyous escapism and hyper-realism. From popular Y2K shades like bubblegum to hot pinks and fuchsias, these highly vibrant pinks are giving us playful creativity in everything from fashion to hard goods and design.

A clear trend going into 2022 is how we’re embracing a more hybrid world with a new perception of “normal.” We’re rethinking how we communicate, how we work, and how we socialize after times of intense isolation and uncertainty. With new ways to reach each other and work together in hybrid environments, advances in technology are playing an integral role in keeping contact.

NEW PE The online experience remains strong for both social and business needs. Recently, TikTok became king, dethroning Google as the most visited website and showing the increasing power of social media and content creation. And the growing importance of virtual space is exemplified in the popular concept of a totally connected VR and AR-assisted 3D environment called the metaverse; as tech’s hottest buzzword of 2022 (so far), you’ve probably heard of it. This cultural shift towards online socialization in a true metaverse has increased consumer desire for VR headsets and accessories that improve connectivity and user experience. Of course, with so much of life and business being conducted online, cyber security is a growing concern. And as a necessary antidote to more online time, the idea of unplugging for “intentional intermissions” and more “analog” moments are the key to balance.


Many have returned to offices, while workplaces aim to keep people feeling protected in their shared environments. But many employers have also embraced the hybrid model. With more mobile offices and remote workspaces, companies are making sure their employees are outfitted with gear that keeps them happy, healthy, and productive outside of the shared office. Being able to work in a flexible way is becoming the norm, and many products geared toward this on-the-go worker are becoming popular buys.

ERCEPTIONS Other fresh perceptions are linked to sustainability, with more environmentally conscious finds, new eco materials, and evolving ideas. People are paying attention to product ingredients and materials, and zero waste packaging as well as biodegradable, recycled, and renewable products are all in demand. Upcycling is a key concept in sustainability, from food to clothing and raw materials. And more ideas to limit waste are altering consumer purchasing habits; many people are now investing in slow fashion “transeasonal” wardrobes—layering key transition pieces and basics dressed up for the season instead of a total quarterly closet change-out.

Browse this collection of trending products that ready us for these new perceptions of “normal” life.

Running in parallel with the physical world, you can also shop for NFTs or use AR to interact with different products before making a purchase with your favorite cryptocurrency. For now, you can experience bits and pieces of this concept through multiple VR or AR-enabled platforms, but you need to have the right gear. Check out these Metaverse-friendly products!

Y2K


A trend fitting for uncertain times—Y2K is back! With underlying anxiety about the Millennium, the early aughts were a time of new invention and expression; it’s no surprise that the uncertainty brought on by the pandemic has created a similar culture in 2022. Characterized by an explosion of bright colors, the early internet and tech revolution, pop-punk attitudes, and denim-on-denim ensembles, the Y2K era was pretty extra… but it’s the next stop on the nostalgia tour we’ve been on over the last few years. As a huge trend in pop culture, food and beverage, and fashion, nostalgia is escapism at its finest. Evolving out of the ‘70s roller skating boom, ‘80s-inspired pop music, and ‘90s fashion fever that we’ve seen the past few years, the Y2K throwback was bound to happen eventually. Inspired by pop culture events like TV reboots and reunions of shows like Sex and the City or Friends, this deep dive into the past is offering us some nostalgic comfort. It feels familiar, and that’s why it’s working. On the catwalk and on the streets, designers and influencers are going full throttle with a passion for early aughts fashion: denim and velour, fur and puffer jackets, butterflies and tinted sunglasses, Ed Hardy and trucker hats, polos and tracksuits, belts and bucket hats. Checkerboard print everything brings back that surf-skate-punk-ska “cool factor” that Vans has capitalized on for years. And a new micro-trend of ditching auto-pair wireless earbuds for “retro” wired headphones is a love letter of sorts, as more people show that they’re “committed to the wire” and other tech “relics” of the past. Some of our favorite brands of the ‘00s are showing why they’re still our favorites, twenty years later. So go ahead and browse this throwback collection. The year might be 2022, but the vibes are so 2002.

"Wired headphones are as timeless and uncomplicated as your favorite sweater. They don’t need to be charged, they sound better for the money, they’re more environmentally friendly, and they usually last longer. TikTok creators like them for their portable in-line directional microphones that require zero setup. Plus, nothing says “I’m busy” like a cable hanging from your ears. Using wired earbuds is the rare trend that is both a rejection of the status quo and a (mostly) less expensive option." - Lauren Dragan, senior staff writer for Wirecutter
