At Resort, Anti-Punk Pink-------
The Met’s Punk: Chaos to Couture curator, Andrew Bolton, reportedly professed that pink is the color of punk. But, judging by the Resort collections, such associations are all but gone. Designers are swapping angst for allure, offering a noticeably softer take on all things coral and flush. Michael Kors, for example, afforded a bubblegum-colored jumper, replete with a mega-size turtleneck and lots of cozy fuzz (above, center). Max Mara showed a slouchy hooded overcoat in rosebud (above, left), and Giorgio Armani channeled a candy striper with a neat, structured blazer in magenta and golden stripes.
Moving beyond outerwear, Oscar de la Renta paired a cropped jacket in a cotton-candy shade with a matching top and electric-roseate skirt (above, right), and at Akris, Albert Kriemler invoked the arresting palette of Luis Barragán’s Cuadra San Cristobal estate on the outskirts of Mexico City—the result was a collection boasting shades of the manor’s pink stucco and serene fuchsia sunsets.
