Rose Quartz and Serenity: How The New Pantone Colors Invaded Our Lives

It’s 2016 (did you know?), and it’s the opportunity to become a better version of yourself. A new year brings along new social movements, people breaking barriers, the simple act of getting a new haircut or even choosing something different from a dinner menu. Point is, the possibilities of something new is always there.

The way we choose to live our lives is ultimately up to us—so much power huh? The way we choose to take control over our lives can be represented in many ways. Whether it’s in the color of our hair, the type of shoes we decide to wear or the people we decide to share breakfast with. These are all forms of representations of how we choose to live life. It’s beautiful to think that even a simple color can mean so much.

Which brings me to Pantone’s color of the year! Have you heard about it yet? You must have! For a first-timer, Pantone announced two colors of the year — Rose Quartz and Serenity. Two colors who are supposed to represent order, balance and peace.

Three elements that are perfect to incorporate into our lives. The world and our own personal world can always use a little more balance, order and of course peace because let’s be honest who doesn’t like a little quiet?

This combination challenges the traditional and embraces the new and exciting. It accepts the idea of wellness and tranquility among a society that’s trying to evolve and become better. It invites everyone to be a part of a new revolution! So the real question is, how will you incorporate these colors into your life? Not sure how?

How about taking on the new of the new, for example, the hottest design house in the city, Project White Elephant. Designed locally and manufactured to small studios of loving grandmother’s in Vietnam, the team behind PWE bring a whole new light to urbanistic fashion. Whether she’s dressed up for the gala or dressed down in the Marina, their wide range of collections extend the boundaries of runway into the realm’s of reality. Their spring/summer collection is genius for the girl who’s looking to explore her personal and intellectual style. Mixing in the balance of Rose Quartz and the calming numbers of Serenity, this collection is one we can get behind this season.

But who is Project White Elephant? We had to know — “PWE was founded by Danny Dinh, a San Francisco native.  After graduating the Academy of Art University in San Francisco , Danny interned and advanced with several fashion retailers where he learned the inside-outs of retail and merchandising. He took this knowledge and put his savings into developing PWE,” said the team.
