I love this color …What do you think?
The color is called Radiant Orchid, and it’s an incredibly bright hue somewhere between pink and purple.
According to Pantone’s Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, it’s a unique shade for creative types:
“It’s a little different, it’s a little off the beaten path, and it’s not a primary color. It’s an invitation to innovation. The purple family offers (an) opportunity to do creative things.
“People associate purple with creativity and originality — and those are very valued today. We see words like that being used to describe technologies and products that are seen as innovative and with an approach you haven’t tried before.”
Joanna called it “Nicki Minaj purple,” while Liz says it would “look great on the Queen”–
Radiant Orchid is a theoretically cool shade, and could potentially be nice on specific skin tones in small doses.
