PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri

A New Pantone Colour Whose Courageous Presence Encourages Personal Inventiveness And Creativity.


Last month we saw Pantone release their colour of the year 2022 as PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri, for the first time ever Pantone have developed this NEW colour specifically for Colour of the Year 2022.

Pantone describe this years choice;

“Displaying a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. Rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents complemented by a new perspective that resonates today, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri places the future ahead in a new light. 

We are living in transformative times. PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new colour possibilities. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse and rising artistic community in the digital space PANTONE® 17-3938 Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how colour trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa.

“The Pantone Colour of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that colour can hope to answer,” added Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Colour Institute. “Creating a new colour for the first time in the history of our Pantone Colour of the Year educational colour program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place. As society continues to recognize colour as a critical form of communication and as a way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red-violet-infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lie before us.”


Pro-Stretch and the colour of the year 2022

Here at Pro-stretch we understand the importance of the use of colour, and we love to keep ahead of the game.  We are constantly researching current and future fashion trends for our developments, and innovations.

As we prepare for 2022 we expect to see many hues of ‘Very Peri’ coming through in gym, sports and leisurewear. This will also be seen in interiors and many design influences.

Pantone references feature in many of our developments. Most of our brands and their developers, refer to Pantone references and colour standards and we then submit the relative Pantone colour swatch, so everyone has the same colour to refer to.

Many of our brand development teams take influence for their seasonal ranges with the colours that Pantone recommend, so it is important that Pro-Stretch can offer complementing trims and labels. Along with our Asian factories we work together to produce a range of innovative trims and labels to present to our customers.

Not only do we develop for our brands for their specific requirements, but we also create generic catalogue samples for inspiration, these can then be developed further for garment use if required by the developers.

These are often colourful, innovative designs that wouldn’t fit the guidelines for brands, but would suit a more generic project.
