5 Bags Inspired By Pantone's Colour Of The Year: Ultimate Grey and Illuminating

5 Bags Inspired By Pantone's Colour Of The Year: Ultimate Grey and Illuminating | Goxip

Pantone’s colour of the year is always an exciting announcement for design buffs and the fashion crowd. Not only does it nod to the trends of the coming 12 months but it also says something about society and what’s happening in the world.

However, for 2021, Pantone threw a curveball and selected two contrasting shades, “ultimate grey” (Pantone 17-5104) and “illuminating yellow” (Pantone 13-0647), which it describes as “a marriage of colour conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.” We love the contrast between the two colours which are very different but together create a stylish look.

To help you stay ahead of the curve, below we’ve selected 5 handbags that will allow you to get the look for yourself.

(1)Valentino Garavani Supervee

For those looking to make a statement, Valentino’s Garavani bag is ‘it’. Made from leather, this small cross-body style is finished with a supersized gold-toned logo that's borrowed from the house's 1968 archive.


Philip Lim’s Pashli Mini Satchel is set to become your new daily go-to. Made from leather, it’s surprisingly roomy, easily fitting all your essentials and more.

(3)Loewe Gate Bag

First seen on the Spring '18 runway, Loewe’s Gate bag quickly became a cult favourite. Made in Spain from textured-leather, it now comes available in a summery yellow hue.
