Pantone might have labelled 2022 as the year of “Very Peri” violet, but in reality—a different shade has swarmed the internet this year. Deep, vibrant, loud, hot pink has been on the up since March and now it has been cemented as the colour of the moment thanks to a fresh trend called “Barbiecore”.
Inspired by the extreme fuchsia runway at Valentino’s fall ready-to-wear show in March—the Barbie vibe was locked in when images from Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie feature film went absolutely viral. The mood is "think pink", the mood is “Come on, Barbie, let's go party”, and the hotter the pink the better. With spring, summer, and warmer days on the horizon, there’s really no better time to embrace all things bright, bubbly, and fun—so let’s get into it. Here’s how to dress Barbiecore.
