The new color is announced and promises great things for our spectacles and sunnies! A completely new shade of violet blue by PANTONE, the hue displays “a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing - as well as promise of newness”.
According to PANTONE, Very Peri is no ordinary mauve. “Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expressions.”
For glasses and sunglasses, the palette of blue-purple has always been strong in eyewear, a pleasing range of colors for many complexions, and a popular one in a combo or beautifully patterned acetate tones. The bright energetic feel of the new shade is also in line with our move towards stronger, punchier colors for frames, to make a bold and beautiful statement that is exciting and full of surprise.
