Nothing Was Hotter Than Pink at NYFW

Whether through Missoni pussyhats, Paris Hilton’s tracksuits, or straight Hubba Bubba, hot pink has armored unapologetic femininity since its first steps into the sartorial conscious. While blushes and rose-tones date back to the Renaissance era, the hyper-pigmentation that makes hot pink hot has pop artists like Andy Warhol to thank. The fuchsia hue is as versatile as it is ambiguous—its resistance to being defined into a single HEX code spans from Schiaparelli’s Shocking Pink gowns of the 1930s to neon-drenched ’90s windbreakers. Whether tucked into accessories or cloaked over a ball gown, hot pink shows up. On the heels of fashion’s re-infatuation with ’80s colorways, the designers of New York Fashion Week have openly embraced the head-turning enigma that is hot pink.

In his first runway show since bagging last year’s Fashion Fund award, Christopher John Rogers gleefully cranked up the dial on his signature megawatt color palate. Amongst the pearlescent oranges and tart greens, a slew of highlighter-pink ensembles stormed the runway. The fluorescent shade took all forms—from a tailored two-piece to Rogers’ quintessential hoop-skirted ball gown—but each iteration both cemented the tone’s trend status and solidified it as a mainstay in the young designer’s arsenal.

Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta strive to create durable, wearable pieces through their namesake label, and this season’s runway hosted an eccentric array of ’80s hints and amplified basics. While Eckhaus Latta is known for primarily playing within the boundaries of a neutral palette, this season introduced a vibrant new color wheel to the house’s spectrum. Whether screaming from acid washed jeans and a vinyl overcoat, or whispering from beneath a skin tight sheer mini dress, hot pink is a key player in the sustainable label’s Fall/Winter lineup.

Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia looked to New York City nightlife as inspiration for the latest Oscar de la Renta collection, and the house’s feature of an ultra-saturated fuchsia was nothing if not the life of the party. The color was nearly bright enough to be an optical illusion (is it pink? is it orange?) and carried surprising staying power atop everything from cummerbunds to mini dresses. The collection went above and beyond to prove hot pink’s versatility, showcasing the color in every textile from a face-framing feathered hood to wide-legged satin trousers.
