Discover New Masculinity – one of the NCS Colour Trends for 2020+

30 September 2019

New Masculinity is a colourful parade to celebrate equality, human rights and liberation. To be you, whomever you choose to be.

The search for equality has created important new movements globally, with the liberation of gender equality as one of the most massive. The new feminism has evolved and, with it, the rise of the new (hu)man, as the new masculinity.

While fighting for our rights as human beings, the traditional stereotypes are being questioned. The new woman is here and, together with a new-born masculinity, all boundaries between masculinity and femininity is gradually being erased. Born out of this is one of the most important NCS Colour Trends for 2020+, New Masculinity.

PLAYFULNESS COMBINE HARD MATERIAL WITH SOFT TEXTILES


New Masculinity is a celebration to us as human beings. A playful trend included in the NCS Colour Trends 2020+, that mixes soft textiles with hard metals, combined with interior details in different shapes to create a playful yet unexpected interior design. Inspired by the variety among us human beings.

THE COLOUR PALETTE


The colour palette is a colourful parade of bright yellow and soft red, purple and blue. A cheerful gender-free style with colours that traditionally are not masculine. It is a balance of the softer pastels with a blackish purple shade, which reflects the idea that men can still celebrate black leather but now with a slight purple tint.

As a bridge between the chromatic colours and the dark colours, there is a beautiful warm beige nuance. This is one of the most chromatic colour trends for 2020+ with up to 60 in chromaticness.
