Millennial Pink refers to a collection colours which have made their way into the zeitgeist thanks to recent collections from Valentino, Emilia Wickstead and Gucci to name a few. Somewhere between Salmon and Barbie Pink but most certainly not Salmon or Barbie Pink, Millennial Pink is hard to pinpoint; here’s a collection of images which I think embody this year’s most charming colour trend.
Mesmeric and inspiring, each with their own charm, I adore my coffee table books. My collection takes pride of place atop my chest of drawers in addition to a selection of framed prints and Vogue covers.

In an ever-changing social media landscape, the most successful brands are able to adapt their social media strategies with the launch of new features; such a situation has been presented recently with the introduction of Instagram Stories. In regards to fashion brands, Ted Baker and Kate Spade have risen to the top of the pack with their fun and interactive Instagram Stories.
Ted Baker are innovators of fun in every aspect which is portrayed in their use of Instagram Stories. Choosing to showcase the ‘Keeping up with the Bakers’ campaign as if flicking through TV channels is utterly fun and extremely clever. This interactive social media campaign integrates moving editorial images, witty puns, competitions and sounds. Utilising Instagram’s ‘See More’ feature ensures the capitalisation of customers through easy navigation to Ted’s website.
Whilst Ted Baker chose to use ‘Stories’ as a platform to share their Keeping up with the Bakers campaign, Kate Spade have opted to use the platform to showcase a different quote, fact or good deed everyday. Kate Spade’s use of Instagram stories is charming and mirrors the core essence of the brand, fitting in with their target customer who is ‘Quick, Curious, Playful and Strong’.
