Peach Fuzz – 2024 Is All About “Peach”

Peach fuzz, or more precisely Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, is the official color of the year 2024. It is a velvety-soft peach shade that we will encounter again and again this year in many areas, in fashion, accessories, graphics and various design areas. But where does the trend come from? Peach Fuzz was named color of the year by Pantone, which is why you will be seeing “peach” more often this year, and not just in the form of juicy fruit. The fashion and accessories sector in particular likes to take its cue from the annual “it” colors. But who or what is Pantone to dictate a color to us so easily? Pantone is an American company that was founded in New York in 1962. It has developed a color system that is used worldwide. It helps to considerably simplify communication about color matching, particularly in the production of printed matter and textiles. The standardized colors each have a number and designation and can therefore be assigned at any time. Incidentally, Pantone is an artificial word made up of pan (Greek πᾶν, “all-encompassing”) and tone (English color tone). The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is based on 18 basic colors that are mixed together in various proportions to produce all the other colors in the system. It now comprises thousands of shades. The colors are presented in fan form (the Pantone Formula Guides) and in ring binder form (Pantone Solid Chips Books).

This year it is “Peach Fuzz”, a shade between pink and orange that conveys warmth. A color with a vintage atmosphere that reflects the past on the one hand, but also has a contemporary appeal in a modern interpretation. Peach Fuzz represents our desire to take care of ourselves and others. “In developing a shade that reflects our inherent longing for closeness and connection, we chose a color that radiates warmth and modern elegance. This shade radiates compassion, is like a tangible embrace and effortlessly bridges the gap between youthfulness and timelessness,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute. Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Institute, explains why Peach Fuzz was chosen as Pantone Color of the Year 2024: “At a time when so many areas of our lives are characterized by unrest and turmoil, our need for care, empathy and compassion is becoming ever stronger – as are our ideas of a more peaceful future.… weiterlesen
