No one can deny that these can sometimes be dark times: we need a bit of colour now more than ever. What better way to bring that into your life than with these luxury rainbow-splashed accessories, ably referencing the pride flag of the LGBTQIA+ (or the, altogether more lovely to say, QUILTBAG) movement.
Any reasonable person can’t help but enjoy the resplendent audacity of the rainbow flag, refusing to blend into our all-too-often beige and monochrome world. The brilliance of the flag’s original concept, by Gilbert Baker, lies in its simultaneous celebrations of individuality and togetherness. This is something we always subliminally understood, back in our school days singing a rainbow: each colour is unique and vital, in its own way, but also an essential part of the multifaceted whole. Complex design themes are rarely nailed with such clarity.
So, back to 2019. The sky is still grey and the news is still depressing. Has there ever been a time at which it has been more pressing to treat yourself to a vibrant, rainbow-coloured accessory, to break up the winter drudgery and remind yourself of the good things in life? We think not, so we’ve taken the legwork out of it for you and collated the top contenders.
