This week we’ll finish up our feature of the latest prints and patterns from Paris, Milan, and London. Use Deb’s shots from Europe’s store windows to identify current pieces in your wardrobe as well as to track down new ones!
BLACK AND WHITE, BLACK WITH WHITE
“Black and white is best in patterns that are decorative and mixed with one another for an ultra-fashionable look. Consider micro- to macro-houndstooth, lacey effects, grillwork and scroll, ikat, and space-dye, as well as classic stripings, checks, and herringbone rounding out this embellished to kinetic trend. Black and white patterns are often mixed this season with one another; conversely, black and white ‘color-blocking’ is also an effective way to use this timeless duo.”
