Spring Color Preview: Snorkel Blue

As part of our 2016 Spring Color series, we would like to introduce Snorkel Blue. 



“A maritime -inspired blue, PANTONE 19-4049 Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context. The name alone implies a relaxing vacation and encourages escape. It is striking yet still, with lots of activity bursting from its undertones.”

Each year, color designers from Pantone meet and declare what the spring palette will be.  These colors will appear in technicolor in all aspects of life for the year.  In 2016, Pantone’s color designers searched this year for unisex hues, perhaps in hopes to refute the archaic stereotype that pink is for girls, and blue for boys.  Some colors depict an urban landscape, while others are more organic.  Snorkel Blue is vacation, relaxing,

Designers such as Tadashi Shoji and Georgine will be showing Snorkel Blue as part of their spring designs.



Wedding-scapes can use snorkel blue as an updated version of navy blue.  Check out the Snorkel Blue macarons!
