“Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come”. This is the presentation of Ultra Violet, Pantone Color of the Year 2018: a provocative and thoughtful purple shade that, according to the global colour reference organization, communicates originality and visionary thinking.
 
Like marsala in 2015, rose quartz and serenity in 2016 and greenery in 2017, this new Pantone Color of the Year 2018 influences many dimensions of design and 080 Barcelona Fashion collections are no exception. In the last summer edition, different brands and designers introduced this purple shade in their looks for spring-summer 2018. From January 29th we will discover the presence of Ultra Violet in the collections for autumn-winter 2018 within the 21st edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion, which promises to be filled in this trend colour.
 
Looking to the fashion collections seen on the runway last June 2017, we recall Custo Barcelona’s ready to buy line, which introduced some previews of his spring-summer 2018 collection, with sexy minidresses in Ultra Violet. Pilar del Campo also presented a powerful look in purple with model Mayka Merino rocking a leather jacket mixed with a body and over the knees stockings.
 
Other designers prefered to introduce a dash of Ultra Violet in their collections, combining it with other colors. For example, Guillermina Baeza and Brain & Beast mix purple with yellow, while Pablo Erroz surprises with a snake animal print with a touch of Ultra Violet. One of the most daring looks of the designer for next spring-summer 2018.
