Note to self | Pink

A selection of images gathered on my desktop over the last week. How do I keep them, what folder do they fit? Each image must have been worth keeping, as I made an effort in copying them onto my desktop.

It’s the pink.

Pink can be devastating, brutal and embarrassing – overwhelming – yet, inspiring and comfortably refreshing.

Note to self.

For 2018 pink for the interior has evolved from the still girly soft tone to a dirty embracing shade of pink called Heart Wood.

Out now, a bible on PINK by Valerie Steele, published by Thames & Hudson

pink

A new book by Thames & Hudson

Description by Hudson : “Today, with the advent of “millennial pink,” the color formerly associated with Barbie has acquired a new identity. Nor is this the first time the symbolism of pink has been radically transformed. In collaboration with a major exhibition at The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, curator and fashion historian Valerie Steele explores the history and significance of pink in fashion, art, and culture from the eighteenth century to the present.

Steele and her co-authors tell the whole story of this controversial color, emphasizing how its meanings changed throughout the centuries and across the globe, in cultures as diverse as France, India, Japan, Mexico, and the United States. In eighteenth-century France, men and women alike wore pink, which was a fashionably “new” color. A century later, however, pink had become feminized and eroticized in the West.

Pink is beautifully illustrated, with images of stunning pink fashions given context by photographs, advertisements, and works of art. It features essays by scholars across the disciplines, giving readers access to a wealth of research into subjects as diverse as Hollywood movies and the symbolism of the pink triangle. This book will appeal to those interested in fashion and culture, as well as those who love pink.
