Bold black and white blocking, featured on silk dresses or crisp knitwear, creates new visual layouts that offer a pure, reduced approach to pattern. Far from simple, these clothes prove that decoration, can in fact, come in a fresh, new, colorless guise.
A sophisticated game of correspondence, for example, plays out on a loosened silk dress that has been divided from front to back, and side to side, into black and white quarters. The same bold graphic effect works on two-piece separates, as silk knits and double face cotton A-line skirts cut below the knee. Revived in their design, they become new neutrals of the season.
