PANTONE’s New Metallic Shades Ensure Your Designs Shine Bright Like A Diamond
By Izza Sofia, 10 Oct 2018
PANTONE, the specialist in professional color standards, has released its latest ‘Metallic Shimmers’ collection to glam up your creations.
Made with interior, fashion and product designers in mind, ‘Metallic Shimmers’ is a collection of 200 metallic colors that can be applied across fashion accessories, footwear, homeware, color cosmetics, and more. The metallic shades are displayed in nitro-cellulose coating to showcase their brilliant hues on paper.
Pantone Color Institute’s VP Laurie Pressman explained that the new ‘Metallic Shimmers’ collection has been carefully curated to ensure it looks chic and directional, while maintaining a “timeless application” across different categories ranging from fashion to electronics.
This includes a wide range of colors from core basics such as the PANTONE 20-0002 ‘Ice Palace’ and PANTONE 20-0034 ‘Golden Egg’ to bolder hues, for instance, PANTONE 20-0146 ‘Magnetic Blue’ and PANTONE 20-0131 ‘Purple Sequin’.
The aim of ‘Metallic Shimmers’ is to provide designers with a wide set of colors presented in various formats that help to simplify their processes. Instead of sourcing for material samples that would be time-consuming, these metallic finishes provide consistent color communication and aid designers in their visualizations.
The ‘Metallic Shimmers’ collection is available in three formats: the ‘Metallic Shimmers Color Guide’, which is presented in a portable fan format for easy reference of color and inspiration; ‘Metallic Shimmers Color Specifier’ that is a single-volume binder accompanied by colored chips that you can add to product sketches or mood boards; ‘Metallic Shimmers TPM Sheet’, which is a 8.5-inch by 11-inch color sheet that allows easy communication and evaluation throughout production.
