The colour trends for the comings seasons are a mix of seasonless neutrals, spiritual and powerful colours. SURVIVAL is the overall theme of NCS Colour Trends 2019+. The term survival might sound dramatic, but it symbolizes our desire to live and develop as humans, in spite of the difficult circumstances we have faced over the past few years. The colour trends for the coming seasons are a reaction to the trend drivers of today. They are inspired by our striving to contribute and to build better societies and a better world, along with our pursuit of personal development. We will therefore see powerful, feminine purples, spiritual oranges and muted, seasonless, pale colours. Each chapter has one main colour, that acts as the driving colour for the trend and gives a colour direction. The main colour represents the story by itself, and in combination with the colours, the story becomes stronger and more beautiful.
TREND #1 WATER Inspired by recycled waste from our waters with mystical blues, bleached, washed-out colours. Ocean trash becomes luxury items.
TREND #2 FAITH We are driven by goals beyond material possessions, physical satisfaction and monetary wealth.
TREND #3 NEIGHBOUR Powerful, dark hues inspired by the creation of new communities where we find unity together as a modern day tribe.
TREND #4 SHINE A bright outlook on the future inspires new ways of matching colours and materials in art and interior design.
This season’s breakdown of colours has shifted from darker and chromatic shades, toward less chromatic, soft shades with deep and strong undertones.
