These days, it seems like PANTONE is everywhere. So what better way to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration than with a super cool color guide made from selections matching the Queen’s wardrobe over the years?
PANTONE and advertising agency Leo Burnett London chart six decades of style for Queen Elizabeth II with the launch of a limited-edition ‘Diamond Jubilee Color Guide’. The guide is designed to capture and commemorate some of the Queen’s most memorable color choices since her coronation – featuring PANTONE Color references and citing the date and location that determined her outfit color choice.
Selecting feature colors from the Queen’s wardrobe, PANTONE featured some of these colors – the reason behind them? Check it:
PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow - The Queen’s royal wedding outfit from 2011 was Primrose Yellow. Yellow is a color that speaks to the future with hope and optimism.
PANTONE 13-4411 Crystal Blue - Blue is a colur staple in the Queen’s wardrobe, is also seen as de-stressing so it’s no surprise she was sporting a serene blue to a Royal Garden Party in 2010.
PANTONE 16-2124 Pink Carnation - In recent years, she has been seen in trendier bright pinks, defying her age and communicating that she is a monarch modern in thought and spirit.
PANTONE 13-5414 Ice Green - During the Queen’s landmark state visit to Ireland, the first since the country gained independence in the 1920s, she was seen in a cool shade of green.
So will you be seen using the Diamond Jubilee Color Guide? Or will you steer clear of this PANTONE look book?
