The aesthetic, which has garnered over 8 million views on TikTok, was first spotted on the fall 2022 runways thanks to designers like Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Rodarte, and Chanel who took on pink as the dominant hue in their collections. Combined with fashion’s current affinity for platform heels, chunky jewelry, mini skirts, and party dresses, pink’s dominance has everyone thinking they’re living in a Barbie world.
At Paris Couture Week, attendees took the memo, wearing head-to-toe black outfits adorned with hot pink hats and shoes, monochrome neon pink suits, and black tube tops paired with pastel pink micro mini skirts. There were also pink tulle frocks and hot pink handbags that looked borrowed from the closet of the Mattel doll.
