Color is one of the main qualities of visual information about the surrounding world. It subtly reflects the mood of the time and often becomes the first place among associations when we recall the style of past eras. For example, about the pastel period of Rococo or purple of ancient Rome. The beginning of the new millennium is colored in millennial pink, a diverse and ambiguous "pink millennium" — a complex greyish shade with a soft peach sub shade.
Traditionally, the Pantone Color Institute publishes the trendy shades of the season and also announces the main color if the year. Some of them remain only on the catwalks and pages of fashion bloggers (for example, the bright green greenery of last year remained completely unintelligible, and the impudent violet of 2018 is used primarily in accessories), others quickly and permanently gain popularity as a luxurious “Marsala”. However, there are colors that can tell a much more interesting and deep story, and pink suddenly became one of them. At different times this color was considered refined, and fresh, then “boyish” in the form of diluted aggressive red (The symbol of martial Mars), then exclusively feminine and mannered, the last reading of pink is infantilism and frivolity. The 2000s were remembered for its kitsch version of Barbie pink, but the year 2016 was a turning year when a tender “pink quartz” and blue “serenity” divided the pedestal. “Quartz” very soon pushed the companion and fell in love with many people so much that the powder coat, the must-have of that season, now became a classics along with a beige trench, and the color grew to a more neutral, muffled and dusty shade, increasing the scope of distribution. Completely in the spirit of modern art combining naivety and intellectuality, millennial pink reflects the harmony of tender youth, relaxed comfort, bright personality, bold challenge, and intelligence.
