// color story : rose quartz & serenity

For the first time ever, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz & Serenity – are selected as the 2016 PANTONE Color of the Year.

PANTONE-Color-of-the-Year-2016-CodesWith these tranquil shades being Gemsounds© signature colors from the jump, we’re feeling even more inspired to embrace the inherent palette of our zodiac element : air. Pastels are symbolic of healing, balance, & clarity. As delicate as they may appear, these shades are not just bound to the feminine reach…

“In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality & fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged & an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.” via Pantone.com

& we are proud to be part of such a generation. Here are some of our favorite runway looks for 2016, appropriate for all powdery princes (& princesses) alike.
