Millenial Pink

The era of Millennial Pink started in Summer 2016 is still staying strong and not (nomen omen) fading. Variation of pink everybody called the Millenial one, went beyond the rococo palette.

It is still an ongoing  trend in digital media, graphic design, fashion, make-up, hair-style, home decor. Pink has been interpreted in many different hues from blush to rose and recently salmon. The Pantone Color Palette for Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter is dominated by bright and strong hues and so the evolution of pink could turn towards the vivid hues.
