With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.[/perfectpullquote]

2019 color of the year: PANTONE 16-1546

For 2019, the vibrant, yet mellow Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.

Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.

It’s an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge and we have seen this color popping up in various eyewear releases for 2019.

Kaleos Eyehunters is well known for their vibrant color use. Many of their latest additions feature this Living Coral trend.
