#PARCINQFashion: Viva La Glam

“A new narrative” between power and exuberance, the Pantone color of the year tells us to be brave and fearless while in style this 2023.

#PARCINQFashion explores the Pantone color of the year, Viva Magenta. That’s right! This red, pink, and purple balance, without being too aggressive or dominating, might just be your go-to fashion color if you want to pop off your confident and empowered self. Allow this deeply saturated shade to make an impression on people through these outfit ideas curated by SOFA Design Institute students just for you.


Feeling a little extra? If this combi doesn’t command attention, we don’t know what would.
