It has to be pink

Hot fuch­sia, siz­zling cerise, shy sug­ared al­mond — you’ll find them all in the shops for spring, says Bar­bara Chan­dler

London Evening Standard (West End Final B) - ES Homes and Property - - Design -

HOT PINK is the Pan­tone fash­ion colour for spring — prov­ing that what goes around comes around. When Hun­gar­ian emi­gré Ti­bor Re­ich show­cased his award­win­ning fab­rics at the 1951 Fes­ti­val of Bri­tain, he wowed the aus­tere post­war world with the chunky mod­ernist weaves of sun­shine yel­low, pea­cock blue, and, most sur­pris­ing of all, Si­amese pink.

Ti­bor Re­ich fab­rics are newly back in pro­duc­tion, thanks to the en­thu­si­asm and ini­tia­tive of his grand­son, Sam Re­ich, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Ti­bor Ltd. Visit ti­bor.co. uk for more.

Mean­while, Tri­cia Guild calls it Fuch­sia Pop, push­ing her pink pal­ette of paints and fab­rics as an en­er­gis­ing shade for spring — and her De­sign­ers Guild store in King’s Road sets colour trends for the whole cap­i­tal. Her spring paint edit in­cludes a candy shade called Vree­land Pink, a rosy Madame But­ter­fly, and sug­ared al­mond Jaipur Dusk.
