Seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton has just announced a partnership with Italian luxury house Valentino – a brand he’s frequently been seen wearing over the years – for the brand’s autumn/winter 2022-23 collection, titled the Pink PP Collection.
As you may have been able to guess, the collection revolves around a single color: pink. Lewis has always said that purple’s his favorite color (go figure) but we reckon he looks pretty good in this monochromatic Valentino fit.
Why ‘Pink PP’, though? Because Valentino’s creative director is called Pierpaolo Piccioli. Get your mind out of the gutter…
These days, straight men are largely comfortable with the idea of a salmon jacket or trousers, but full-on hot pink is another prospect entirely. But as Hamilton shows, real men can wear pink.
