The AW15 catwalks were awash with pink, but how does this softest of shades work in the real world? Time for a brush with blush, says Katie Wright.
How many items of pink clothing do you have in your wardrobe?
Not many is probably the answer. Barbie's favourite colour evokes everything from mild dislike to outright fear, but even the most ardent chromophobe will be rethinking their stance when they clap eyes on the rose-tinted AW15 collections.
Prada led the pack, with all but a handful of looks featuring the rosiest of hue, from salmon trouser suits to leather opera gloves and silk Mary Janes. Also in Milan, Dolce & Gabbana's ode to motherhood included blush capes and shift dresses, made all the more girly with the addition of red rose embellishments.
But it's not all about flashy fuchsia and ultra-feminine styling - crisp minimalism and ladylike chic are the buzzwords this season.
And when the sugary shade looks this good, you'll be dying to indulge your sartorial sweet tooth.
