Vogue Italia Says "Color of the Year 2016: rose quartz Pantone has named rose quartz color of the year 2016."
Posted on 08 January 2016
"A reassuring pink tone, a soothing hue that keeps stress at bay. Following the nuance that paid homage to a sip of dessert wine in 2015, Marsala, Pantone has named Rose Quarts color of 2016, publishing on Instagram a fashion concept of this specific hue.
It’s the color of “girls”, that announced a baby girl birth with a pink ribbon on the front door. Many fashion icons love (and wear) pink: we all know Audrey Hepburn’s devotion, who said «I believe in pink», while Gwyneth Paltrow picked pink for her dress at the Academy Awards in 1999, which brought her luck, when she won the Oscar for best actress in a leading role for Shakespeare in Love. Dakota Johnson wore an unforgettable rose quartz slip dress by Prada to attend the première of Black Mass at the Venice Film Festival in 2015.

This shade of pink takes center stage also for 2016 Spring/Summer, like the urban effect compact and opaque brushstrokes seen at BCBG Max Azria and Marni, or the ethereal sheerness of Christian Dior, Carolina Herrera and Bora Aksu. Totally romantic rose quartz tulle or satin at Vionnet, Alexander Wang or Molly Goddard.
How to wear and team rose quartz?
All-pink look. A monochromatic minimal chic outfit: clad in pink (almost) from head to toes. Add neutral accessories to break the one-color choice: silver shoes for Chanel, black pumps for Alice McCall or thongs with maxi white sole for Stella McCartney. The all-pink look may give a ‘little doll’ effect if you are a blonde or have delicate features, so we suggest to avoid it.
Pink plus orange/red. This is a winning combination because the vibrant warm hues (red and orange) uplift this delicate pink shade. See the two-tone outfits by Trussardi, the abstract geometric patterns, see Prada or Desigual, or as color blocking, Chloé or Gucci.
Rose quartz plus Serenity blue. This specific tone of blue is another standout color for 2016: Wear them together, as suggested by Vionnet.

Pink and black. If you are not ready to dare, team quartz rose and black, for a romantic-dark vibe. Try first with accessories, Jil Sander, or layer a voile apron-blouse over a black & white gingham dress, see Miu Miu."
