Pantone Color(s) of the Year 2016

Last week while waiting at the dealership for an oil change, with eyes glazed over from the boring morning news segment on the television screen, I both hoped someone would change the channel and kicked myself for not bringing something to pass the time. 
Sometime between a story about an overweight cat and God knows what, the 2016 Pantone colors of the year were announced. This is the first time in Pantone's history that two colors have been chosen as "color of the year". Not that I am at all bothered about how many colors are chosen, but for curiosity's sake, I read a New York Times piece on how it is meant to be a political statement about movement toward gender equality and fluidity. If you're interested, you can read it here.

I thought it would be fun to create mood boards for both shades with shop-able items. Everything is linked below the boards, so click away to your heart's content. I had a blast making these. Totally took me back to all-nighters in the Adobe lab at college. Have a good one and stay inspired!
