The inspiration for the 2022 fashion color comes from the rise of the meta universe and the long impact of the epidemic. Pantone believes that we are living in an unprecedented era, and we need to introduce a new color instead of extracting a color. Very Peri represents the increasingly blurred boundary between the physical world and the digital landscape:
When we come out of a period of intense isolation, concepts and standards are changing, and physical life and digital life are fused together in a new way. With the increasing popularity of Metaverse and the continuous development of the digital space art community, we expand the boundaries of reality and create new color possibilities.
At the same time, Pantone plans to work with artist Polygon1993 to launch 6 NFT artworks featuring Very Peri as the main elements.
Very Peri is easily reminiscent of Ultra Violet, the popular color of 2018. Pantone said at the time, “Ultraviolet reflects elements such as counterculture, non-conformism, vigilance and foresight, revealing the mysteries of the universe, and inspiring people to move forward and "Exploring the unknown" is not outdated even now.
