Pink: Innocent Color or Undercover Revolution?

Are we all on the same page about pink yet? It’s everywhere. Pandora Sykes recently dished about the necessity of a pink suit to Man Repeller  (I concur), wearing Altuzarra no less. London’s art-lined, rose-tinted tea room Sketch Gallery is on my Instagram feed every other day, as Vogue so duly noted. And designers high and low are serving up scoops of the sweet color for all tastebuds. Just take Rihanna’s all pink (and green, to be fair) collection for Fenty x Puma Spring 2017 as a prime example. P.S. the $90 slide sandal is already sold out on

So basically, get in where you fit in (if it hasn’t yet hit you).

Personally, it’s always been my favorite color but I’m glad everyone else will at least be joining in for a little while (posers). Just kidding! But in all seriousness, pink is a pretty powerful color, no? Right now, it is pretty evident as to why a blushing color (get it?) is making such a grand entrance. Feminism is at the front lines of just about every conversation and, as such, the color that has long been gender branded for females is tagging along.

This trend is not just about the surface level idea of ‘pink,’ a tint of a color comprised of red and white. Rather, its emergence is a stylish representation of the power led by femininity. Let this mood board serve as a visual ode to that power.
