Lads wear pink
The biggest shift in menswear over the past five years has been the move away from suits and smarter garms to sportswear and trendy leisure-wear. This movement has evolved through the generations, from Blur and Oasis championing the tracksuit, to today’s grime artists and powerhouse designers such as Kanye West and Gosha Rubchinsky curating streetwear lines seen on the backs of young guys and girls in skate parks and Dover Street Market.
Many sportswear brands have embraced feminine textures and pastel palette’s as they have evolved with the culture: think velour, silk, mohair and angora. Pink in particular is having a bit of a moment; Raf Simons introduced his Adidas Stan Smith collection in baby pink and Kim Jones at Louis Vuitton gave us pink silk shirts on the runway. We’ve curated the best pink pieces to subtly introduce into your wardrobe: a touch of pink in the best possible way.
