Pink Different: 10 Can’t-Miss Finds, Minus the Frills
by Shoko Wanger
Get ready to rethink pink. With ten fresh finds, we’re doing our part to rid the world’s happiest hue of its saccharine, superficial, sickly-sweet stereotype. From dusty suede sneakers to bubblegum bathwater, browse stand-out finds—in rose, raspberry, fuchsia, flamingo, and beyond—bewitching enough to make even the staunchest skeptics blush.
All Over Sweatshirt
Pack a blush pink punch in this eye-popping “sweater shirt” from Hong Kong’s ZL by zlism.
Dusty Pink Suede Sneakers
Sneakers go sophisticated with Jennie-Ellen’s platform lace-ups in chicest pink suede.
Sweet Pink Shoulder Bag
Introducing a pastel pink shoulder bag that’s pretty but not overly precious. Made by Apipi Leather, a brand that specializes in handmade leather goods, it carries a lot in its compact frame. Stash your phone in its roomy front pocket; slip cash in its sleek zippered back.
Giacomo Dining Chair
Make dining a dream with whitewashed oak chairs strung with peach-colored cord. Thank Austin's Michael Yates for the upgrade—in business since 2003, his shop produces pieces in simple, striking shapes from best-quality materials. (This chair is available in oak, walnut, ebonized ash, and more.)
Sushi Dish Set
Each piece in Studio Swart & Noot’s graceful sushi set was shaped by hand. Comprised of two soft-edged dishes and the world's most elegant spoon, the trio is fired to a velvet matte finish, in a color so sweet it calls to mind candy.
