As in the previous season, also for the Spring/Summer 2019 blue is confirmed as a color of great trend, in the two variants of blue night, named by Pantone Eclipse, and electric blue 90s style, defined by Pantone Princess Blue.
The dark blue or midnight blue, intense and deep, is one of the essential colors for the everyday spring / summer 2019 to be used in total look monochrome or combined with other shades, from natural colors to the most vibrant nuances.
This blue tone, that evokes the midnight sky, is a reinterpretation, with the most serious and mysterious notes, of the classic neutral blue.
It is a shade very similar to the blue navy that recalls the dark denim, the model Boombastic of the late ’90s.
Electric blue, on the other hand, brilliant and fresh, is a daring blue with a gritty and sparkling soul, one of the most charged and explosive shades for spring/summer 2019.
This majestic shade of royal blue is very versatile: it is refined and elegant in combination with black; it acquires shine when worn with white garments; it reveals eccentric notes in combination with strong colors such as red and purple; it gives chromatic strength to pastel shades.
Tory Burch chooses midnight blue to give a touch of elegance to soft trousers and combines them with beige and orange for a casual chic look to wear every day; Derek Lam offers dark blue in a suit, jacket and trousers with large volumes and sporty chic notes. Elegant and casual style at the same time for Emporio Armani that presents the night blue in a total monochrome look of sure trend.
Intense and captivating, the electric blue represents the choice of Louis Vuitton that for the spring/summer 2019 collection uses this shade for a top with roses pattern and oversized sleeves inspired by space suits, combined with slim cargo style trousers, always with roses pattern but in shades of purple. The result? A bold look with bright colours and a futuristic metallic effect.
