Welcome a new season with Pantone’s ‘Color of the Year’ 2024 – Peach Fuzz

Each year, Pantone, a company specialising in the world of precise shades, chooses a new colour to influence fashion and design, and Peach Fuzz is in the spotlight for 2024. But what exactly is Pantone’s Peach Fuzz all about?

Getting down to business with Pantone

For some, Pantone may fly under the radar, but the Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a crucial tool for colour matching in the design world. Over 10 million designers rely on Pantone for their colour standards, customisation, and brand identities, which ensures consistency across designs and products.

Introduced in 1999, the Colour of The Year is all about sparking creativity among designers through the language of colour. Pantone aims to capture the global mood and reflect current trends each year.

Pantone’s 2024 colour

The Pantone Colour of the Year 2024 was selected to evoke feelings of kindness and tenderness with a broader message of renewal, community, and collaboration. This pinky-orange hue exudes warmth, optimism, and the joy of spring and the blossoms that follow.

Peach Fuzz is incredibly versatile as it complements a wide range of skin tones. Pantone describes it as ‘Fresh and youthful when paired with earthy browns and dramatic when paired with deep reds and plums’.

 

As the year progresses and the word of Peach Fuzz spreads, we have started to see more eyewear brands taking inspiration from this peachy colour. We’d like to introduce a couple of brands that have done this effortlessly.

Persol Eyewear

Persol Eyewear 

Persol is an Italian brand known for its high-end glasses, with its signature arrow emblem hinges and iconic Steve McQueen sunglasses. Originally marketed over 100 years ago for pilots and sports drivers, its glasses have since become a firm favourite among celebrities and a more discerning clientele. Leonardo Di Caprio, Zac Efron, and Lewis Hamilton have all been spotted sporting a pair. Its aesthetics are drawn from vintage styles, and cinematic and technological influences often find their way into the final designs.

Persol’s Francis sunglasses are a fine example of its vintage-chic style, and the shade of light pink gives off the same Peach Fuzz energy Pantone aims to achieve. The rectangular frame shape works well with round faces, and the soft pastel colour can be paired with sage green, lilac, or cornflower blue for complementary contrasts.

Moscot

Moscot

Born and bred in New York City, Moscot’s roots are firmly planted after 5 generations and 100 years of perfecting and fine-tuning. Going from selling eyewear out of a shopping cart to being a brand worn by celebrities, you might miss the subtle cart logo on the inside temples, which reflects the brand’s origins and growth. The materials are selected to ensure both beauty and durability are on equal footing.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Johnny Depp have both been spotted wearing a pair from this iconic brand.

Moscot’s Miltzen and Lemtosh frames are some of the most popular, but for sunglasses this spring, the Moyel is a perfect choice. The rose gold metal slips nicely into the Peace Fuzz realm, and the vintage design continues to command attention and soften angular face shapes.
