Pantone’s Color of the Year: Does Your Golf Wardrobe Include It?

The Pantone Color Institute recently named their 2023 Color of the Year: Viva Magenta 18-750, touting it as “brave and fearless, a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.”

We are thrilled to see their choice because we’re bringing magenta to the golf course with some of our newest women’s golf styles. And you’ll see more from us in 2023!

We can’t think of a better color for a new year of breaking boundaries and pushing the limits of women’s achievement in the golf world.

Why a Color of the Year and how is it chosen?

In 2000, the Pantone Color Institute introduced the Color of the Year, a culmination of research by color experts to identify and forecast trends of new color influences around the world and across mediums including fashion, art, technology and even politics.

There isn’t a specific goal to push or popularize a color by naming it the Color of the Year. Instead, the company ‘s selection invites a broader dialogue about the power and impact of color as a visual language. Colors can make a statement that goes beyond words and the company’s mission is to understand the importance of color when marketing products.

Once the color is announced, brands around the world get to work designing products incorporating the Color of the Year. Watch for Viva Magenta to appear on everything from your social media feed, fashion runways, wedding cakes, eye shadow palettes, and interiors.

What’s special about Viva Magenta?

Pantone describes Viva Magenta as “an unconventional shade for an unconventional time.” It’s a powerful and empowering shade, perfect for women who are bucking the traditional expectations of women in golf, breaking with the history of the sport as a men’s only club. Rather than conforming to what is generally believed about the game, Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year invites us to tap into a rebellious spirit and push beyond our comfort zone with fierce grace and confidence.

When you want to feel powerful, wearing Viva Magenta brings a fresh energy to any challenge, like picking up a new sport (golf or pickleball anyone?). Even adding a pop of Viva Magenta to a favorite solid outfit can bring playfulness and fun and show that you are in-the-know about this trend.

Simply put, the Pantone Color of the Year is the “It” color and you can expect to see it everywhere in the new year.
