Black is the only genuine color

Van Gogh noted that Frans Hals painted with 27 shades of black. In terms of fashion, no wardrobe is complete without the black color.Every woman should own a simple elegant black dress. This opinion is staple since the 1920s,when Coco Chanel published a picture of a short, calf-length, straight dress decorated only by few diagonal lines. Vogue called it “Chanel’s Ford”. Later, in the 50s and 60s Audrey Hepburn was dressed by Givenchy in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in trousers and evening gowns all in black. Black was the color of the end of the twentieth century and its popularity goes from strength to strength. Designers such as Yohji Yamamoto, Helmund Lang, Nicole Farhi have black at the heart of their colors. After all, Black is an absence not a presence.
