All hail the Queen! To celebrate 60 years on the throne Pantone and Leo Burnett London have joined forces to create a high design homage to Her Majesty with a limited edition colour guide of the different hues of the Queen’s famous stylish ensembles through the years. This guide uses Pantone colour references and give the date and location of each outfit Queen Elizabeth wore.
The Executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute®, Leatrice Eiseman, stated: “The Queen’s decision to favour one colour in every outfit is a strong style statement. Monochromatic colour schemes make the wearer appear taller, delivering a more stately air – perfect given that Queen Elizabeth is not tall at 5’4”. Choosing one colour theme also ensures the outfit does not detract attention from the wearer – which is particularly important if you’re the Queen.”
