Pantone recently designated "Classic Blue" (Pantone 19-4052) as the colour of the year 2020, following an in-depth analysis of trends in the various creative sectors. Blue is also a very important colour for Pyque and it will be featured in our 2020 collection!
Our own vision of blue for 2020.
According to Pantone, Classic Blue is a reassuring and universal colour, full of optimism and evoking "the immense and infinite evening sky". For our 2020 collection, we started with a midnight blue and a petrol blue for our swimsuits (a little less poetic but just as effective!) and two indigo wash shades for our t-shirts.
Of course, at Pyque we use the Pantone system: from the style creation process to the validation of the products. Indeed, Pantone is an essential colour nomenclature, used by all fashion professionals (including factories and manufacturers) to communicate about colours. This system allows us to make sure that the colours of our different garments match exactly the shades we had imagined and chosen.
Our textile Pantone book includes no less than 2310 colours directly presented on swatches of cotton: impossible not to find what you're looking for!
Want to know more about colour systems?
If you are interested in colour coding systems, we recommend a book that we love: "Werner's Nomenclature of Colours" which was first published in 1814 and is a wonderful colour classification. Indeed, this collection gives for each shade examples from the animal, vegetal and mineral world.
It is a book of undeniable charm that can be seen as a true ancestor of the Pantone system.
Until we can dress you in our different shades of blue, we wish you a very good day!
