Edgy Pink

When 3.1 Phillip Lim sent a neoprene pink coat down the runway, it walked right into my heart.  I’d never witnessed such a memorable combination of girlish hue, techno-fabric, and unexpected leather details before.  This piece speaks volumes and it still sends my heart aflutter.  In fact, pink coats, as a species, are having a glorious moment in the sun right now.  It’s hard to argue with their winning ability to add both warmth and sunny personality to a look, even a simple one involving jeans, a plain black tee, and flats.

Adding some patent leather and camo accessories bring more of my current favorites to the table.  And they make it clear that this isn’t your traditional and uncomplicated pink.  It’s got some edge too.  Before you get the wrong impression and think you can walk all over it.    You’d better think twice about that.

You’d also better run down to H&M today (and on the web today at noon EST).  The long-awaited Isabel Marant for H&M collection is dropping, and I am salivating at the thought of it.  Isabel Marant brings effortless chic to a level rarely witnessed; and somehow she does it season after season.  Getting her timeless designs at a fraction of the cost– I consider that a no brainer.

Happy Thursday (and happy hunting for Isabel at H&M!!)
