Very Peri has been named the Colour of the Year 2022 by the Colour Institute Pantone. The purple hue will encourage inventiveness and creativity, according to Pantone. However, the colour can also be spotted in several designer collections.

According to the Colour Institute, Very Peri is “a new perspective of the familiar and beloved blue family with an undertone of violet red.” The purple shade is therefore not to be confused with the earlier purples of the year such as Ultra Violet (2018) and Iris (2008). The shade is shown below.

Several fashion houses have already used the hue, or something very close to it, in their collections. These include Tory Burch, Saint Laurent, Calvin Luo, Laura Biagiotti and Undercover. Even in 2016, the hue was already seen in a show by Moschino.
