Pink: A Case For The New Masculine Hue

Pink: A Case For The New Masculine Hue
Believe it or not, back in the 1920s, the colour pink was considered a masculine tone (possibly for it’s close association with red) rather than having the girly, feminine connotations it carries now. Pink is only said to have become the accepted norm for the female gender as late as the 1940s, after gradually outselling blue in the marketplace throughout the 1930s.
 
Today, with the increase of designers pushing the boundaries between fashion and gender, the once lady-like shade has been claimed on the runways of 2012-2017 as a man’s sartorial choice. “Millenial Pink” has been one of the more distinct trends that has been around for past seasons, turning up in collections ranging from Gucci to Topman.
