Is monochrome the new black?


Aside from metallic and bold prints, prepare yourself this season for the monochrome take over, think Carolina Herrera, Coco Chanel? Not only did it dominate the runway but it's also breaking into our high street not to mention red carpets.

“We love it because it’s so versatile and can be worn head-to-toe, à la Marc Jacobs or, for the more demure, simply by using accessories from Nicholas Kirkwood, Alexander McQueen and Sophie Hulme” says Paula Reed, Fashion Director at Harvey Nichols.

Black and white has always been a classic combination that will never go out of style! This season Monochrome is key! It’s one of the simplest, most chic looks to pull off and never fails to make a statement.
