What does “PANTONE” Colors means.
This weekend IFN Within Amsterdam Fashion Tv Staff produced this interpretation of the new trends for the upcoming A/W ’19/20 Season. We’d like to special thank our beautiful muse @Liselore_ but also her agency @mixmodels and the MUA @Marthafriedlander and of course Graziella Ferraro for the impeccable styling. Pictures were done by M.P.
The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another.
One such use is standardizing colors in the CMYK process. The CMYK process is a method of printing color by using four inks—cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. A majority of the world’s printed material is produced using the CMYK process, and there is a special subset of Pantone colors that can be reproduced using CMYK. Those that are possible to simulate through the CMYK process are labeled as such within the company’s guides.
However, most of the Pantone system’s 1,114 spot colors cannot be simulated with CMYK but with 13 base pigments (14 including black) mixed in specified amounts.
