2021 is going to be a strange year, hopefully not as strange and devastating as 2020 but a more hopeful, positive year as we try to emerge from a global pandemic. This strangeness has been followed by the very unusual announcement that Pantone 2021 has announced not 1 colour but 2 colours for their Pantone Colour of the Year. Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Grey and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating a vibrant yellow. A union that gives a message of solid, strength and positivity with the promise of sunnier times, cheerfulness that is essential to lift our spirits during these unprecedented times.
Grey and yellow are a big trend in interiors, fashion, furnishings and even cars. Pantone's choice of colours will also filter into makeup, nail varnish, paint and accessories. Grey and yellow handbags can be hard to find but at Attavanti we have sourced exclusive Italian designers and some that vegetable tan their own coloured leathers. We have noticed that both these colours have become more popular with our customers over the past few months too.
A favourite bag in Pantone grey is handwoven design by Ghibli, each bag is handwoven by skilled artisans into an intricate, geometric weave pattern. Their master craftsmen turn each pieces into a work of art and any bag in their range can be custom made to order in any colour leather of your choice.
Now for the yellow. There is a great choice between Tuscany based Pratesi polished radica leathers and Terrida, Venetian designers beautiful grained leather bags and backpacks. My personal choice would be the Pratesi Pelago, a super stylish cross body, satchel in polished leather. Bang on trend with large, shiny gold coloured hardware that when closed resembles that famous "H". Perfeto! And for the Terrida it would be any bag from their Murano range in bright yellow, grained leather which include contrast blue interior with the stylish addition of exquisite Murano glass pulls. These are so stylish and just ooze Italian style.
Things can only get better. There is lots of hope for sunnier times, built on our solid strength and steadfastness throughout countless lockdowns and restrictions. Get your ray of sunshine from Attavanti. Keep going and keep safe everyone.
