According to Milan Design Week, the big trend in 2018 will highlight bright and strong shades, like:
PINK. The color that has been standing out for the past few years since Kanye West put it on his fashion collection few years ago, and the Millennials claimed it as their aesthetic color.
PRIMARY COLORS like RED, YELLOW, and BLUE.
ORANGE. A color that has been hiding in the dark for the past decade, yet raised to the top and has been seen in the streets of New York, Milan, Tokyo, Paris and London.
LOTS OF GREEN. Last year dark green made quite a strong appearance, but this year it’s all about Avocado green!
GREY. This is the safest neutral choice if you think bright colors are too risky. This color even beats the strong monochromatic black and white look that most people adored in 2015.
