Fall’s rose-tinted runways proved that pink is the season’s sartorial shade – from pastel peony to dusky rosewood, the ultra-feminine hue pulled power moves on the catwalk in every variation. The trend began to surface at SS19 shows with soft, powdery tones of blush and ballet pink featured at Brandon Maxwell, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford. At Rodarte, layers of tulle and floating lace were decorated in flushes of pink, whilst Maison Rabih Kayrouz and Emilia Wickstead opted for a sleeker, flamingo color-block.
Fast forward to the new season and FW19 showings revealed pink to be just as punchy as it is pretty. Pink power suits reigned in versatile shades at Adeam, Alberta Ferretti and Boss, with fuchsia favored by Chanel via a pantsuit and waist-cropped cape and Carolina Herrera through taffeta wide-leg trousers in the same bold tint. At Roksanda, Alexander McQueen and Givenchy, the pink color code was used to adorn exaggerated, oversized forms in pale peach, shocking pink and vivid sherbet.
Off the runway, the trend has been spotted on A-listers and fashion aficionados. A firm street style hit, the color has also been embraced by the Duchess of Cambridge, who conquered the tricky pink and red color clash at Archie’s christening; styling a pink Stella McCartney dress with red heels and a bespoke red headband from Juliette Botterill. Back in June, Priyanka Chopra also attested the on-trend hue, sporting a pastel pink skirt-suit for an elegant day date in Paris.
