Black & White - Stripes, Blocks, Patterns
The non-colors of Spring 2013
April 20, 2013
A leading trend on 2013 fashion runways, and a new attention-getter in home furnishings – crisp black and white combinations. The striking binary approach appears in stripes, blocks, organic patterns, and mod 60s optics.
"The energizing power of black and white is not confined to apparel," says Ron Fiore, Bernhardt creative director, "Black and white combinations are easy to live with, grounding, and mix with any palette you’ve established."
