Symbolism, meaning and physical effects of blue

While blue conjures images of sky and sea, it’s also the color of bravery and dedication. Blue represents introspective journeys and symbolizes wisdom and depth of understanding. But blue is also a symbol of depression and the depths of the human psyche. Blue stands for serenity, rather than passion, and it’s the color of all that’s constant and unchanging.

On the Paris runways the one of the ‘It’ colors of the season was bright blue (see Stella McCartney and Courrèges), and street stylers definitely got the memo, because this electrifying hue popped up literally everywhere. Blue is the color of nature - and in a world where we spend more and more time online, blue reinstates the beauty and endless strength of nature. More to the point, various shades of blue such as the two paler tones referred to as Spun Sugar and Glacier Lake are reminiscent of the blue surgical masks that we are all two familiar with because we were wearing them or watching them. In a sense, the spring/summer 2022 color palette is self-contradictory as it envelops quiet tones as well as bold colors - acts of defiance— where the more energetic colors shine bright as if to lift your spirits high celebration of rebirth.

 

 

There’s a reason we think of blue as relaxing; it actually tends to lower our heart rates, blood pressure, and even our body temperature. Blue can have an effect on the pituitary gland, affecting our sleep patterns, and it can slow our breathing as well. Studies of memory have demonstrated that memory is enhanced by blue light.

 

 

 

Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. The color of ocean and sky, blue is a constant and calming influence in our world.
