Peach Fuzz: The Calming Colour of 2024
Hello, all you stylish individuals and trendsetters! Have you ever stopped to imagine what the colour of the year would look like if it could embody a particular hue? Well, the creative minds at the Pantone Color Institute have already done the work for us, and they’ve declared that the defining colour for 2024 is none other than “Peach Fuzz” – a soft, fruity shade that exudes a sense of peace and tranquility.
According to Leatrice Eisman, a colour specialist at Pantone, amidst all the chaos in the world today, we could all benefit from a nurturing colour. Something warm and comforting that provides a tangible sensation of contentment. In times like these, the ability to connect with one another through touch is more crucial than ever.
But how did they settle on this specific shade? It turns out that peachy tones have been gracing the runways for quite some time. From high-end fashion events in Milan to glamorous gatherings like the Oscars, the colour has been making appearances for a few years now. Back in 2016, stars like Beyoncé and Giorgio Armani were already embracing peach in their own unique styles.
And it’s not just the women who are embracing this colour. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made a splash at the Oscars in 2023 with a suave Peach Fuzz tuxedo jacket, proving that this colour is breaking boundaries and making its mark in men’s fashion as well. And let’s not forget about Rihanna, who absolutely rocked a peach leather mini dress at a Paris runway show while heavily pregnant. Modern and chic, indeed!
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Pantone’s Color of the Year initiative, and it’s clear that their recent colour choices have been spot on. They’ve been all about strength, optimism, and resilience – qualities much needed in today’s world.
So, what does Peach Fuzz symbolize for 2024? Eisman believes that, amidst the whirlwind around us, we all require a little peace and quiet, a moment to simply breathe. After all, 2023 was about breaking out of the pandemic slump, and now it’s time for a bit of rest and relaxation. And that’s exactly what Peach Fuzz represents for us.
