Graphite is the New Black

Graphite: Iron Snob

Forget what the TV show says – graphite is the new black. The hue is softer yet just as sophisticated and edgy, especially when you take the all black everything philosophy and remix it with this dark gray.

Insect Invasion: The Beetles are Coming

And the butterflies and the spiders…I don’t know if it’s a certain creepy-crawly holiday coming up or Damien Hirst’s buggy Prada bags, but my mind’s been stuck on insect-inspired fashion lately, ranging from the pretty to the eight-legged variety and beyond.

Trend Alert: Graphic Black and White

Sensing some déjà vu? You’re not wrong!

The combo proves that you need no color at all to make a bold statement – just contrast.
