Black and White Forever

Why is it that black and white always looks better than anything else? After seeing day after day of dizzying color on the runways of Paris couture, it was most refreshing to be treated to Azzedine Alaia’s chic and tailored study in black and white.

I have a feeling that this favorite color combo will also be the color palette of choice for many designers on their fall/winter 2003 runways (Yohji Yamamoto showed his fall collection with the Couture this past week and it too was a study in black and white complete with an explosion of houndstooth checks).

Speaking of black and white, I am adding a black and white silk/satin Chanel blouse from the 80’s to my shopping cart. In my opinion, it defines timeless chic.
