Black + White: The Ultimate Fashion Equation

13.08.14

Life might not always be black and white, but this season, fashion is. Casting off its Sixties connotations for good, monochrome plays a starring role in AW14’s style story. Refined silhouettes and a purist palette combine to create the ultimate modern classics: from architectural jet heels to achromatic jumpsuits – these are the wardrobe-cleansing staples guaranteed to make an impact.

Jump To It

The all-in-one has enjoyed a renaissance of late, offering a directional alternative to classic eveningwear. So take a precision-cut blazer in midnight black and team with a louche white jumpsuit. The result? Pure fashion alchemy.

Texture Play

It’s time to get tactile, as sumptuous woollen knits – thickly woven with monochrome threads – and glossy leather skirts adorned with zips, add intrigue to a purist palette. It’s a minimum-effort look with maximum impact.
