Once considered a passive color for little girls and young debutantes, pink has come a long way since Barbie dolls and bubble gum.
Pink. The color most used in paintings to capture the blush of a gentle woman’s cheek or the velvety curve of a rose, pink has traditionally been the color of softness and femininity. Currently, pink has been radically transformed into a color for power of self-expression, independence and rebellion against the stayed stereotypes and attitudes of the past. Pink reveals a delight and willingness to embrace truth and creativity.
The color constantly evolves with the times. Those who are not timid can look through Dior pink colored glasses, at Comme des Garacons’ Yue Minjun laughing faces and Yves Saint Laurent’s clever use of pinks in makeup, purses, shoes and breath taking Haute Couture pieces.
