PRETTY THINGS WORTH POSTING - fall will be blushing

i first noticed it on tumblr.
the stream was taken over by waves of pink.
not blush, not "makeup colors",
but pink.
it ranged from a klimt i had never seen
to chris fawcett for coitus mag :

charlotte free and her pink hair have transitioned over to male models :

and for fall,
celine has no fear.
following their wildly covetable neon pink bag for spring,
they sent a navy and neon pink MINK
down their fall runway . . .
and it is all over every blog i see.

even rick owens showed hints of the trend
in a collection where what they call makeup colors
trended softly over into pinks and blush tones.

most lovely of all,
most heart-wrenching,
was raf simons' last show for jil sander.
he re-imagined this house,
he was reaching an apex,
and the couture influenced shapes of the past few seasons
seemed to reach a crescendo here,
as models walked in fifties inspired (but not madmen copied)
dresses and clutch coats,
each which felt more modern than the next
due to fabrication,
and cut.
and the predominant color for his final show?
not black.
but pink.

when i saw the details of this collection,
i understood why he wept when he did his encore walk.
on a last note,
the displays on the runway
were terrariums,
or victorian mourning boxes,
filled with fresh, pink flowers.
