Summery, coloured, and good times: the flamingo trend doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down anytime soon, certainly not for Summer 2018! Dresses, handbags, bathing suits and accessories decorated with this cute animal are the musts of the season, and that’s not all: even our homes have flamingo decorations, which gives an exotic touch to curtains, lamps and other furnishings. But how did this fad start? Flamingo mania began in 2017 as part of an summer-long trend, and it’s been going on ever since.
The flamingo trend: where does it come from?
Over the last few years we’ve seen large, colourful floaties become the hit of the summer: : exotic fruit, unicorns, classic white swans and the pink flamingo. The first mass appearance of these adorable pink creatures occurred poolside and at the beach when the producers of inflatable floatation devices brought the flamingo to the forefront.
The flamingo had previously risen to fame, especially in the United States, when Andy Warhol turned them into a true pop art icon: these pink birds initially adorned American front yards and were then expanded into interior design, becoming a full-fledged symbol of 1980s pop culture.
But why is the pink flamingo so beloved by women all over the world? A major reason why this trend spread so fast was thanks to the many postings on social media: after all, flamingo floaties are photogenic and have even won the hearts of celebrities and the hottest influencers! Maybe we love pink flamingos so much because, for a moment, they bring us back to our childhoods, reminding us of games we used to play with our friends when we spent long, carefree days at the beach.
From floaties to clothing and accessories, to designer objects for the home, it only took a minute: flamingo mania was already at hand.
