Ever looked up into the inky black sky wondering what lies beyond our blue planet? Man’s curiosity about outer space, the afterlife, and our existence in the world have inspired the colour palette forecast of 2018/ 2019 by the foremost authority on colour, the Pantone Color Institute. The seven colours of this trend, which include blacker blacks, oil-slick purples and infinitely deep indigos, have been inspired by mineral shades shaped by unknown forces, and alien forms and surfaces, they say. The hues suggest an unnatural otherworldly provenance that dovetails with the belief that in the future, living on another planet could be an actual possibility.

The palette of seven Pantone colours chosen to represent this science-fiction-inspired futuristic trend are Silver, a light and neutral grey; Tap Shoe, a deep dark grey; Thyme, a mid-grey with a green undertone; Magnet, a mid-to-dark grey; Majolica Blue, a navy; Purple Sage, a dusky aubergine; and Evening Haze, a dusky lavender.
