Trend Report / Fall 2015

Black & White

Some pairings will always work well together: peanut butter and jelly, sea and sun … even Laverne and Shirley. But when it comes to design, there is nothing more classic than black and white. After all, as Maureen O’Hara put it, “In the beginning it was all black and white.”

And probably no two colors make such a graphic, simple and eternally elegant statement. Purists can present product only featuring the two tones, while others may enjoy the occasional infusion of color. In the end, these are statement pieces and not for the faint of heart! —Sarah Schwartz, Trends Editor
