Pink Really Is For Girls As Black Comes Back ::

Reported by Olly @ Trackitdown on August 28, 2007

Scientists suggested pink’s close association with girls could be an evolutionary throwback, the Daily Mirror reported this week, after a study showed Chinese female students liked it as much as Westerners despite lacking a similar cultural tradition.

"It might date back to hunter-gatherer days, when women were the primary gatherers,” study chief Professor Anya Hurlbert, speculated, "They would have benefited from an ability to home in on ripe, red fruits.”

Princess Superstar told Skrufff she ‘loves pink and wears it as much as possible, adding ‘it’s the ultimate princess colour’.

“And let's not forget,” PS added, “the color of a pussy is- pink.”

New York DJ/ promoter/ tastemaker/ man-about town Larry Tee told Skrufff ‘I think pink is hot but I am seeing faded red as the new pink.’

“I can't personally wear pink either because I have a shaved head and pink turns me into ET,” he confessed, “I find my light skin colour is better accented by more dynamic colours like bold primary blues, reds and greens.”

London All You Can Eat chief Jim Warboy also said he rarely wears pink declaring ‘I'm more of a T Bird than a Pink Lady.’

“I love blue actually,” Jim confessed, “It reminds me of when I was a child because I always got blue clothes and my brother always got matching ones but in brown. Even to this day brown is not a colour I wear.”

While Larry suggested colour therapy (‘wearing crazy colours’) makes his days ‘more sunny’ he admitted he usually wears black and grey, a practise followed by Jim.

“I generally base my outfits on a neutral (usually black) with one other colour or one block colour in the whole outfit. I rarely stray from this,” he revealed.

Jim was chatting to Skrufff after spending 30 days on a yogic retreat that involved 21 days of total silence though was happy to speak out confidently about London clubland’s future fashion direction this season.

“Black is back. Sorry Nu Ravers but the party's over,” Jim predicted, “Gloom and doom rides in on the No Rave hearse.”

London nu rave/ club kid party promoter David from Studio Neon was less bleak declaring ‘I like pink, wear it, and loathe it (in that order)’.

“Pink has a place at Studio Neon, absolutely,” he continued, “I like anything, as long as it’s not subtle. Bigger, stronger, bolder, lasts longer . . (hang on, I'm thinking of something else now . . ) Pastels are a definite no-no,” he added.

Just throw them all together and see what comes out. 'Less is more' doesn't work,” said David.

Studio Neon is at Egg (London) on Friday August 24, featuring drag competitions, bands, pole dancers and DJs including Mr Cormac, Peter Pixel, LOVE Technician, Fidelity Kastrow and Jonty Skrufff) ('free entry all night for dressed up freaks')
