Valen­tine hues of 2019

While red is the colour to sport on the day of love, de­sign­ers say that the pal­ette has now ex­panded to in­clude shades of pink, crim­son, vi­o­let and co­ral

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - AFTER -

While red is tra­di­tion­ally the colour of choice when it comes to clothes on Valen­tine’s Day, a mixed pal­ette of hues is also mak­ing its pres­ence felt. De­sign­ers say that women are ready to em­brace shades rang­ing from crim­son to pink, red-in­fused pur­ples, vi­o­let and liv­ing co­ral.

RED IS NOT ALL THE RAGE

De­signer Ar­pita Me­hta feels more women are try­ing to move away from this cliché. She adds, “Though red is the colour as­so­ci­ated with Valen­tine’s Day, peo­ple are also sport­ing vari­ants like crim­son. I feel that rani pink or hot pink is a fab­u­lous op­tion for this oc­ca­sion. Sub­tly ac­ces­soris­ing out­fits in this hue gives a chic and classy vibe. It is not only strik­ing but also makes a state­ment. It com­ple­ments the In­dian skin tone and en­hances fea­tures. It is one colour, which has come back in vogue.”

VALEN­TINE 2019 WILL SHOW­CASE PAN­TONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR

The liv­ing co­ral hue, which grabbed the spot as Pan­tone shade of 2019, will be much in de­mand this V-Day, feel de­sign­ers. How­ever, that does not mean it’s the end of the road for red. Nikhil Thampi ex­plains, “The colour red sym­bol­ises pas­sion and love, so, it is a pre­dom­i­nant shade for Valen­tine’s Day.”
