Pantone 2019: Living Coral

It’s that time of the year again! Pantone has announced their color of the year, and for 2019 it’s Living Coral! A brilliantly vibrant color that makes for fabulous #rootd inspiration.

Here’s what PANTONE had to say about it:

Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.

In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.

Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.

PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color.

For this #rootd we’ve tried to find subtle yet significant references to Living Coral, while maintaining a sophisticated and functional #rootd.

Dapple Equestrian has been forward looking in their designs and have recently launched a small scale Dressage collection which includes this gorgeous Pantone hue. Check out this saddle pad with matching Gilet: a dressage girl’s mathcy matchy dream! Wear it with a pair of Equithème Texas denim breeches, a Kingsland classic blue polo and a Coral KJUS technical outdoor light weight KiKi V neck sweater. Itls the accessories that give that final touch of sophistication to the look: a apir of dark blue Roeckl Chester gloves, a matching custom made KEP Italia helmet with denim and cognac leather details, a pair of stunning cognac Imperial Riding lace-up boots and a Hermès logo buckle belt.

Have a fabulous New Year and wishing you a stylish ride!
