Colour matching brands

Global design leader Pantone and global luxury cosmetics retailer Sephora have paired up to release a special collection of Sephora-brand cosmetics in iconic Pantone shades. They have also selected a ‘Colour of the Year’ to celebrate the two brands’ unified passion for colour and design.

Why it matters

There’s a rising trend of brands partnering with other brands outside of their category to express a shared sense of vision. They use their bond to leverage and legitimise each other to consumers. In this case, Sephora lends style whilst Pantone lends its expertise in colour. How might other brands be able to creatively find a ‘soul mate’ outside their category? How can aligning on a similar passion, rather than a similar consumer demographic, help reinforce the brand’s strength in the market?
