“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” - Coco Chanel
There is nothing more classic in fashion than a black and white palette. Fashion relies heavily on this ying and yang of colors. Just like the quote stated above, designers have always fallen back on this elegant combination. Recently, designer Ronny Kobo of Torn by Ronny Kobo came to my attention for her use of strong, colorful patterns. Her latest collection took a cue from Coco and featured graphic black and white prints. To make her designs stand out even more, she added some hot pink to the mix.
We decided to have some fun with this classic theme as well. During a recent event, we used colorful florals to bring our printed black and white linens to life. Orange tones from the flowers combined with the heaviness of the velvet chairs also brought an element of fall to the event. The fun and festive swirl patterns on the linens perfectly balanced the formality of velour seating.
It just shows that sometimes taking a classic and pairing it with the unexpected is the best result of all!
