It’s all in Black & White...

Black and White 2011/12
Black and white is the most iconic of colour combinations And for A/W 2011/12, black and white is one of many trends that will be making an entrance. This season brought monochrome silhouettes, geographic shapes, perforated fabrics, fine leather, and sheers and lace.
And the black and white trend also brought different styles and lovely ensembles, including tuxedo dressing and polka dots. From men’s striped knitwear to basic blazers, trousers and striped dresses would become the on-trend item to wear.  Designers such as Giles, Burberry, Meadham Kirchhoff, John Rocha and Kinder Aggugini have all been showing looks of graphic black and white mixtures.
The trend seems to translate into all different design sensibilities and is meant to make a statement after all of the colour that we saw for Spring. Some trends are for the moment, and some become instant classics. Black and white, however, is a fashion staple.
 Black and white is often understated and dubbed as minimalistic, yet its simplicity is what gives it elegance. This classic combo will remain in your closet for years to come.
 Black is seductive and luxurious, while white offers a soft clean look. The pre-fall runways proved that the so called ‘minimalistic’ black and white can be transformed into highly detailed and intricate outfits which are sure to be attention-grabbers. Refreshing and seamless styles that are wearable and feminine.
