Pantone has released their Color of the Year and we’ve put together a collection all the fun, flashy, creative ways you can wear it!
The color is described as being a “dramatically provocative and thoughtful shade that communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”
Enigmatic purples have long been symbolic of artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Now you can too!

To soothe her choreographer son’s sore feet, Rose Repetto created a soft pair of ballet shoes using the cousu-retourne technique – where the sole is first sewn and then turned inside out. This stitch-and-return method quickly became a favorite among ballerinas and is still used today. Offstage and outside of the studio, Repetto’s timeless silhouettes – including Brigitte Bardot’s beloved Cendrillon flats – are the epitome of simply elegant footwear.
