Retroflow Analysis: Pale Pink

Pale Pink

Signe Øland Iversen Sumo Chair

Successfully abandoning previous gender associations, pink has reinvented itself as a neutral and is becoming increasingly ubiquitous. This particular pink, a pale, chalky neutral with a warm tint, was well represented at this year’s Milan Design Week and looks set to enjoy prominence this year.


However, moving forward we see this more flesh like tone replaced with more purple cast pinks, before returning once again in the latter half of 2018 and into 2019. While the tints may be tweaked, prepare to see much more of pink moving forward.
