As anticipated every December, colour specialist Pantone recently unveiled the colour of 2020 — and apparently, the year ahead is set to a blue one.

“Classic Blue,” or more precisely “PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue,” will be our next ‘Colour of the Year’. While this is news to many of us, it’s rather interesting to see that fashion hasn’t waited for 2020 to start using what is predicted to be the colour of next year. Some of the major fashion houses have already demonstrated their visionary abilities, by presenting creations in this timeless and elegant blue as early as last February in the 2019 fall-winter runway shows.

The trend was also evident in September in presentations for the 2020 spring-summer collections.

Here is a selection of “Classic Blue”-dominated looks that have been seen on the catwalks this year.
