Pantone 219C, or Barbie Pink, is a vibrant and bright magenta pink shade synonymous with the Barbie brand. Since the inception of the Barbie doll in 1959 by a company named Mattel, the doll has slowly trademarked this specific shade of pink. As Barbie’s popularity grew, the global association with the color pink did, too. From pink accessories, pink houses, pink haircuts, and pink packaging, there is no Barbie without pink. Moreover, as the doll became a popular cultural icon, her iconic shade of pink started to influence various industries beyond just toy manufacturing, including fashion, beauty, and interior design.
