The rainbow has become a powerful symbol for the gay community since the American artist and gay rights activist Gilbert Baker first introduced it in 1978. But besides the LGBT movement, the rainbow symbol has been adopted by many groups or demographics that pursue equality. The positiveness and the serenity that comes from observing a rainbow should inspire us to pursue a peaceful and tolerant society, but not tyrannize us.
Having said that, I would wear anything rainbow without the feeling that I should be in a parade, but just out of the beauty of a spectacle of nature.
But fashion has gone somewhere over the rainbow and designers are using the pattern as a flag, starting with Gucci that presented its amazing rainbow platform sneakers some seasons ago, and was followed by others important names such as Balenciaga, Vetements, and Riccardo Tisci’s debut runway collection for SS2019 for Burberry. So, there is no need to worry that this trend is about to end. We will see rainbows for many years ahead.
And despite any socio-politic connotation, a piece of a rainbow can revamp in your closet. If you are 50 or plus, it will make you look fresher, younger and happier. More effective than a Botox!
In one word, It’s magical. Or, as Eleanor Robinson, Selfridges’ director of accessories points it out “hard to miss, upbeat summer fashion at its best”.
