Spring Color Inspiration: Red + Pink
Pink and red! What a fascinating mix. These colors are the most trendy combination of the moment, for sure. We see it everywhere, from trousers to tops in our favorite shops, to street style icons to windows displays.
Though we were not very used to see these two colors together until now, they’re actually considered a harmonious scheme since red mixed with white actually becomes rosé. The result of mixed colors combined with the initial color is considered a good choice.
I was never a fan of pink but I have to admit it has been rebranded and I could give it a try. Once a symbol of dated gender binaries, pink is now the color of powerful optimistic statements. Those of us who cast aside our bubble gum pink paraphernalia the moment we grew old enough to shop for ourselves — and those of who still loved the hue but grew sick of the vaguely offensive “girly girl” associations — now have reason to reach for our rose-colored glasses.
Pink was everywhere duringSpring 2017 fashion week last year. From toned-down pastels to electrified berry tones, pink showed up at Valentino, Sies Marjan, Alexander McQueen, Molly Goddard, Gucci, Emilio Pucci, Celine, Prada, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu and literally dozens more.
Street style influencers and window displays in the most iconic fashion houses around the globe are screaming PINK + RED combo, and it certainly makes a wonderful mix for interiors, fashion, food styling, textiles and graphic design.
