Global leader in colour expertise Pantone has decided to welcome PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz – a subtle yet sensual hue full off kindness and tenderness, as the Color of the Year 2024. The announcement also commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Pantone Color of the Year programme, which began in 1999 that has evolved into a cultural phenomenon, aiming to reflect and express the “prevailing mood” and attitudes of our global societies through colour.

Communicating a message of sharing and caring, the warm and cosy shade highlights a desire for togetherness with others, presenting a fresh approach to a new softness.

An appealing peach hue nestled softly between pink and orange, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz inspires belonging, recalibration, and an opportunity for nurturing, conjuring up an air of calm, offering space to be, feel, and heal, and to flourish.

Poetic and romantic, a clean peach tone with a vintage vibe reflects the past, yet refashions with a contemporary ambience.


Why Was Peach Fuzz 13-1023 Selected to be Pantone 2024 Color

Speaking about turmoils in our lives, our need for nurturing, empathy, and compassion grew stronger. We are reminded that a vital part of living a full life is having the good health, stamina, and strength to enjoy it. Focusing on our health and well being, both mental and physical, and cherishing the special friend and family moments, we wanted to turn to a colour that could focus on the importance of the community and coming together with others.

The colour that was selected – the Pantone Color of the Year 2024 – needed to express compassion and empathy, and the desire to want to be close to those we love.


PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz and its Multiple Applications in Fashion, Technology & Architecture

Virtually arresting and inviting, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz is an enveloping peach hue that awakens senses to the comforting presence of tactility and cocooned warmth.
