I always loved the pink flamingo, animal by slender and elegant structure as well as its “logo” that cyclically is taken in the summer loan. In the collective imagination (in my definitely) it is something that has to do with the holidays so with relaxation, the carefree (is a very American 50’s symbol), the joy of living. But also with the continuous search for balance (for its slender legs) and the class, especially in the way that moves the neck.

This Summer we saw several, primarily as giant inflatable, floating in pools of celebreties, but also in fashion and design. Here is a small library of images, which I found interesting, and some notes that will make us a little familiar with this cute pink animal.

Was also the protagonist of movie, in the 1972, “Pink Flamingos”, in which the busty Divine was the main interpreter (perhaps the most famous drag queen in the world), low-budget film, became the manifesto of trash cinema.

Later they became a symbol of the American middle class, as ornaments of their gardens, slightly kitschy, but adorable. Finally cleared by Andy Warhol as “letters” of Pop Art, the same way of Campbell soup or detergent Brillo. Finally they characterized the signs more or less exotic shops, until he lands in our closet or in our house.

Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director, has turned them into the subjects of the next campaign Fall Winter 2016, a flock of pink flamingos are the protagonists of the shots, as much as the models or the interesting collection. A worthy tribute to the fauna (and flora) that Michael has already accustomed us, as well as every accessory that you notice in the background of the images, it is not “accidental” but the result of research and a particular attention to detail, as ancient books, rugs, everything, or almost, in geek-chic style.

Pink Flamingo in Fashion by Beatrice Brandini

Long live the Pink Flamingo, I hope to see it on summer nights on some magnificent girl, as a lifesaver for some stylish wetting, in the walls or the furniture of some cocktail bar. I, at least one pair of earrings, wear definitely.

Good life to everyone!

Beatrice
