Pink is a paradoxical colour. It can be feminine and dainty; but it can also be strong and rebellious. Last year the fashion world dipped their toes in the pink pool with the must have suit of the season in a beautiful blush hue. But now, thanks to the maximalist influences of brands like Gucci, fashion has gone full fuschia (and rose, and salmon, and coral). 

The spring summer 17 catwalks saw pink appear in every shade imaginable. And every brand; from Balenciaga's raspberry/ lavender clash to Chloe's signature dusty pinks hues; was hopping on the pink pontoon.

No longer is pink the realm of Barbie and little girl's bedrooms, instead, the colour has been reclaimed and refashioned, to be worn by feminist fashionistas all over the world. If they so choose. It is not surprising really, with fashion's current obsession with gender fluidity and challenging gender binaries, that this particular shade has taken off in both men's and women's wear.
