    Vintage Inspirations: Shocking Pink
    There is a femininity in pink (since the 1930s anyway), and there is an urgency in shocking pink—it is fearlessly feminine. Yves Saint Laurent described it as “ aggressive, brawling, warrior pink.” Elsa Schiaparelli thought enough of this vibrant color to make it her non-sweet signature, giving name to her most famous perfume, color to her packaging, and finding its way into her fashions from head to toe throughout her career.

    Shocking pinks ruled the runways again for Fall 2018, looking every bit as fearless and fierce as ever. Schiap would approve.
