Think Pink! From the palest blush to neon bright - Spring/Summer 2017 fashion week runways were awash in all shades of pink.
Maybe its a resurgence or re-affirmation of female power or simply nostalgia – whatever the reason, pink is everywhere. But take note - there was nothing overtly “sweet” or precious about the pink on offer at Valentino, Celine, Hermes and others. The new modern pink has “bite” - “pink” at NYC fashion week was soft and serious, but in Milan and Barcelona, pink was bold and spicy. Even the palest shades were far from juvenile and full of attitude.
If the colour pink is new to you, don’t be intimidated. There is a perfect shade of pink for everyone: Raspberry tones, coral, peach and salmon hues look great if your skin has warm undertones. Cool undertones are best suited to carnation, hot-pink and magenta shades. Red-heads look stunning in soft pink, blondes with fair skin can carry off hot-pink perfectly (think Marylyn Monroe in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”) and dark-skin divas look amazing in almost any shade of pink (how lucky you are!)
