One of Schiaparelli’s Looks caught my attention during the 2018 Fall/Winter Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.

Hey, this is the pink suit below.

Here, the use of flamingo elements is particularly eye-catching. A heart-shaped feather headpiece made up of two flamingos, which contrasts with the flamingo pattern of the top.

The flamingo is an icon of the fashion industry. In recent years, from fashion, bags, shoes to cosmetics, home, mobile phone shells, etc., flamingo elements are everywhere.

For example, Kate Spade, who was famous for producing “happy bags”, has designed the Flamingo series.

One of the 2016 annual fashion colors is pink. So, the flamingo, known as the pink feather and loved by everyone, quickly set off a trend, naturally not surprising.

In the Gucci 2016 early autumn series, the flamingos took a leisurely walk on the carpet.
A flamingo with a romantic look is not a female patent. In the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015 menswear collection, the Flamingo elements are used.

In addition, most people are more familiar, may belong to the following flamingo swimming ring, the fashion Icon almost one hand.

In fact, as early as in the United States in the 1950s, the flamingo elements were once popular.

However, the flamingo at the time was made of plastic and was used as a decoration on the lawn of the backyard.

This is due to the American graphic artist Donald Featherston, who quickly became popular after he introduced the flamingo as a gardening decoration to the market.

But often things are extremely counterproductive. Later, plastic flamingos derived a variety of counterfeit goods, and were labeled “cheap” and “cheesy”.

By 1972, the “vulgar image” of the flamingo reached a climax.
Until 2014, the flamingo began to “regain new life.” It is the use of Marc Jacobs mentioned in the men’s spring/summer 2015 collection. Then, it appeared in brands such as Gucci and Prada.

The above pictures are all from the network.

After that, everyone will know. With the popularity of pink tones, the flamingo elements are out of control.

One thing I have to mention is that although the flamingo is named after the burning fire of feathers, this dreamy color is not the color of the flamingo itself.

The flamingo at an early age is like this, it is grayish white.
The color of the flamingo is eaten, haha. Flamingos feed on algae and plankton in the lake, and the chitin they contain is the cause of the formation of flamingo feathers. ( Although it is inhabited in water or in a swamp, flamingos can fly and fly very high. )

In this way, the flamingo’s fashionable trend will continue.
