Pink Mania

Bubblegum, pastel pink or nude: let’s see if your feet and your style are in the pink this summer !

 

 Pink is the color of calmness, of zen.

Over recent years, it’s managed to shake off its corny Barbie connotations to become a seasonal color that is feel-good par excellence. At the Cruise and Fashion Week shows, pink fever took the big names by storm, placing pink squarely in the catwalk spotlight. Chanel added its famous letters to it, returning to find pink in the origins of the fashion house. Céline, Chloé and Paul & Joe also featured the color, with fluid and timeless shapes that played on subtle sophistication, and others that were positively sensual.

For pink is also the color of naked skin, a color that expresses sexuality just as much as innocence. Rose pink, an anagram of Eros, as the color of sex, of gender, and of its emancipation? And what if pink was above all the color of transition, the ‘fluid gender’ color to unite all genders? We remember the pink triangle gay prisoners were made to wear under the Nazi regime, a ‘girly’ color in the derogatory sense, to denounce their ‘effeminate’ attitude.

Today, men and women are reclaiming this color. Oppression is behind us, but we still need to apply some pressure when it comes to other causes. According to French color expert Annie Mollard-Desfour, ‘it’s about reversing the stigma, reclaiming history’s discriminatory colors to serve the battles of today.’ And striving for peace, whatever the scale!

 
With its soothing and relaxing qualities, pink is an introspective, intimate, personal color. In interior design, architects and designers have also succumbed to the pink trend to create cozy spaces that border on absolute zen. So, go for pink on every level, from the top floor to the basement, and from head to toe! 

At Vanessa Wu, we love pink in all its forms, in subtle hints, or all over in fluorescent, powdery or deep dusky rose shades!
