London (PRWEB UK) 24 February 2013
Chic black-and-white clad models dominated the runways of New York Fashion Week – and now the look has made it across the Atlantic, landing at online retailer SheLikes.com.
Leading lights such as Alexander Wang and Diesel Black Gold showed off collections which included black leather shorts and hot pants teamed with crisp white shirts.
And DKNY and Victoria Beckham got in on the act too, although their stark colour contrasts were offset by the softer lines of many of the clothes, such as dainty miniskirts and floaty dresses.
Stripes and checks were all over the place, with ladies party tops available in a wide variety of these bold patterns, but also being contrasted with a range of different textures, to also help turn up the contrast.
Earlier this month, Beyonce put her seal of approval on the trend, stepping out for The Grammy Awards in a jumpsuit from Osman Yousefzada whose sleek black trousers were expertly offset by a half-and-half top, on which the white provided an eye-catching and totally effective counterpoint.
"The online picture gallery Pinterest is full of images of black and white ensembles being paraded on the world's catwalks," said Nick Puri, managing director of SheLikes.com.
"It's a timeless combination, which of course harks back to the glorious and glamorous days of black and white film, but can also be made to suit any mood and occasion, and this season's juxtapositions of bold colours and softer shapes make the monochrome look suitable for any occasion," he added.
