Pantone, provider of professional colour standards for the design industry, has unveiled Metallic Shimmers – some 200 new metallic colours for fashion, interior and product designers. Metallic Shimmers products are intended to provide designers and production partners with a comprehensive set of colours in a variety of formats that simplify their processes.

Displayed in nitro-cellulose coating on paper to showcase the brilliance of metallic shades, Pantone Metallic Shimmers are ideally suited for use in fashion accessories and trim, footwear, housewares, electronics, colour cosmetics and any other surface or finish where metallic colours are applied.

“In a world of sheen and shine where the aim is to achieve an even greater degree of luminosity, metallic shine is being seen across every single category from fashion and furnishings to cars, consumer electronics and colour cosmetics,” said Laurie Pressman, vice-president, Pantone Colour Institute. “The 200 new Metallic Shimmers colours were thoughtfully curated to enable a finish that is directional and chic with a timeless application. The collection of colours offers a broad range of hues from core basics such as PANTONE 20-0002 Ice Palace and PANTONE 20-0034 Golden Egg to lustrous takes in other colour families such as PANTONE 20-0146 Magnetic Blue and PANTONE 20-0131 Purple Sequin.”

Rather than sourcing material samples and losing time due to reproduction limitations, the new colour category enables consistent colour communication and visualisation for pearlescent and metallic finishes. Further, brands and their software and systems providers can bring metallics to life in the product planning and design process by licensing the colour identities for the 200 new Pantone Colours. These colour names can then be used to call out the new Metallic Shimmers colours in design solutions, product lifecycle management (PLM) systems or as part of a specification to suppliers.

As the latest addition to the Pantone Fashion Home + Interiors colour system, Pantone Metallic Shimmers are intended to complement the existing elements of the system and are available in three formats - Metallic Shimmers Colour Guide – portable fan format for quick colour reference and inspiration, with a single colour displayed on each 1.75 x 6” page, Metallic Shimmers Colour Specifier– single-volume three-ring binder with one colour per full page of perforated 20mm x 30 mm chips to add to mood boards, product sketches or provide to production partners, and Metallic Shimmers TPM Sheet – full 8.5 x 11” sheets of colour that enable easy communication, specification, and evaluation throughout the production process.
