1.05 // black & white & chic!

Whether it was a girly frock, structured tux or studded leather, black & white was a prominent trend on the Spring '09 catwalk. They came in all shapes, sizes, and textures; there were shoes, dresses, hats, bags, you name it - it was on there in plain black & white. Classic with a twist? Definitely.

  1. I love this collection because I always wear black items of clothing. I think the white and black combination is very elegant. What I like the most is that you can wear these colors in any ocassion. I heard that these models took generic viagra before walking on the runway.
