Over at Sibling, Ken was wearing Barbie’s colour. Candy striped pink school uniforms and childhood toys sang out nostalgia.
Forget candy floss, bubblegum and fuchsia, there’s a new shade of pink and it’s called SIBLING. Designed to turn heads on teenage rebels, this eye-catching tone is ideal for customising school uniform, to the point of ending up in detention.
Punks in pink and schoolboys in rugby socks, all inspired by the likes of Sebastian Flyte, Billy Idol, Paul Simonon, Johnny Thunders and Hero era Bowie. An amalgamation of such flamboyant characters results in a wonderfully wild collection.
Wearable doesn’t exactly spring to mind, but if you’re going to buy a full pink suit or a near neon and black furry number the thickness of a polar bear, location doesn’t matter, you might as well never take it off. Nothing else you ever own will live up to this.
Any/all of the adorably droopy teddies to throw over the shoulder of a pink latex mac. Forget Wednesdays, we’ll wear Sibling pink any day of the week.
