… Hot pink, that is! Also known by its British name, shocking pink, the color was popularized in the 1930s by the Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli, and has re-emerged in countless collections this season. Not surprising, considering the designer and her work were the focus of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s summer costume exhibition, and her eponymous label is being readied for re-launch.
