In January, Pantone announced that Ultra Violet is their Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018. This rich purple shade is versatile and be dramatic or subtle depending on how you choose to wear this colour. Why not embrace this stunning shade for effortless style throughout Spring?
Purple has long been associated with luxury and high society, and this vibrant shade can be worn for the new season with a variety of cashmere clothing and accessories from N.Peal for a sophisticated look.
For inspiration on how to introduce ultraviolet into your wardrobe, we are sharing different ways to wear the colour of the year with key items within our N.Peal collection. Whether you’re looking for an understated daytime look, or want to embrace a more formal style that can take you into the evening, we have the perfect look for you.

Layer over a superfine cashmere jumper with jeans and trainers for a chic off-duty look, or couple with fitted trousers if you’re keen to introduce a splash of purple into your officewear. Layering is key to any spring outfit so why not invest in our Long Milano Cashmere Waistcoat for a subtle colour palette that will see you through the season. It is sumptuously soft, and the perfect hue to make purple pop.
Superfine Ribbed Cashmere Sweater – in Sand Brown and Ivory White– £239

The Thames Cable Round Neck Cashmere Sweater – in Lavender Purple – £299
If a deep shade of ultraviolet is not for you, instead take inspiration from Pantone’s Colour of the Year and embrace a lighter shade of purple.
