Monochrome Monday: The Black Edition
Far from funereal, an all-black palette offers sleek sophistication.
This Monochrome Monday, we’re throwing shade with an all-black palette.
Seasons may come and go, but one hue remains constant – black. Far from funereal, an all-black palette exudes sleek sophistication and serves as a canvas for artistic expression. Within the monochromatic world of onyx and ebony, outfits assume a theatrical allure.
Whether it's a plunging gown or a sharply tailored suit, they capture attention, their surfaces gleaming as if lit from within. Black also sparks imagination, offering endless possibilities through textures, intricate detailing, and unexpected silhouettes. Whether understated or dramatic, monochromatic black ensembles evoke intrigue wherever they venture, especially on their journeys into the mysterious realm of ‘After Dark’. This week's curation is a dedicated exploration of all things dark.
