"Think pink! think pink! when you shop for summer clothes.
Think pink! think pink! if you want that quel-que chose.
Red is dead, blue is through,
Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo.
And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce
With the number of posts that feature the colour pink, you’d think I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with it. It just so happens though that it’s one of those colours that illicit a love/hate passionate/violent reactions in people which makes it the colour either problematic or beautiful. Dazed & Confused have attributed to the romaticisim sweeping into next season to the well-heeled, well-groomed ladies of previous generations in their latest January issue. And so we have Beryl and Anne here rocking all next season’s shades of pink quite strikingly, shot by Matt Irwin and styled by Nicola Formichetti, who seemed to have a whale of a time with the grannies. I also love that some of the pink items they’re modelling are their own too which must mean they are perfectly at ease swathed in so much pink.
