Most of the time, fashion trends take the form of a silhouette, but in the recent past, colours seem to be the IT trend along with monochrome clothing. While monochrome clothing made a revival on the runway, it was limited to muted and pastel colours. Soon enough the colour trends changed to bold vivacious tones. Bright yellow co-ord sets and dresses were plentiful in 2021. But in 2022, one colour has reigned supreme above them all: hot pink. The hot pink fashion trend of 2022 has taken over just about every article of clothing om the runway and the streets.
The recently concluded Valentino Pink PP Collection fall/winter 2022/2023 fashion show (at the Paris Fashion Week), is by far the most famous representation of 2022’s trending hue hot pink. What made the collection stand out was that every single look from the lineup was exclusively in the shade.
The Valentino Fall/Winter 2022 show saw some of the top celebrities from Anne Hathaway to Zendaya donning hot pink ensembles. Others like Vanessa Hudgen, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Dua Lipa have also been spotted in the colour trend earlier this year. Speaking of fashion mavericks, head-to-toe hot pink is trending (on and off the runway) – and it’s set to continue through to the next season too.
From fluorescent pink to fuchsia, this bold, aggressive colour is no more just a colour for the gentler sex. Rather, the beauty of the trend lies in the fact that it isn’t restricted to gender; it’s a versatile trend that has been donned by all and the colour is everywhere. The allure of big, loud, scorching hot pink in 2022 is a lot newer!
While Valentino brought back the focus to hot pink, flashes of the shade appeared in a big way on spring/summer 2022 runways from Alexander McQueen to Dior to Versace and even high-fashion brands. It was also the choice of shade for many fashion month attendees. Currently, Valentino’s Pink PP might be the most recognizable shade, but pinks, in general, are seeing a resurgence no matter what your style.
