Red And Pink Is The Colour Combo That Is Trending So Hard Right Now
Hence, plenty of styling tricks just in time for Valentine's Day – and Chinese New Year! Talk about a double whoopee!| February 13, 2018
Sometimes, you wonder if runway trends are the result of providence. Of a foreseeable necessity. With this year’s Chinese New Year happening not very far from Valentine’s Day – one day apart to be exact – one runway trend seems to sum up the intersection of the two occasions just right: the overwhelmingly popular combination of pink and red.
Before I go any further, I need you to check out of the Fall/Winter 2018 season happening right now and shift your focus back to Spring/Summer 2018. Done? Let’s move on. (Though, judging from the New York shows so far, red and pink may continue to trend throughout the year. Oh pink, will you ever leave our lives?)
We saw it at Coach in New York, then at Burberry in London. Attico by bonafide street style darlings Gilda Ambrosio and Georgia Tordini have the most occasion-appropriate interpretation of them all with silky red and pink wrap dresses embellished with Eastern influences. Brandon Maxwell, Oscar de la Renta, MSGM, Isabel Marant, Sies Marjan, Opening Ceremony, JW Anderson and up-and-coming label Rebecca de Ravenel join in the flurry, showing the multitude of ways in which red and pink come together. Boyish, sporty, red carpet, resort, throwbacks to the seventies right through the nineties – the possibilities, it seems, are endless.
It is also handy to realise that the mixture of red and pink need not be limited to clothing alone. Think about accessories, like a red shoe and a pink sock, a pink dress and a red shoe, a pink cardigan and red jewellery, a pink blazer and a red pump. It is colour blocking for the big leagues. Take yourself there, because you can.
