As I know I have mentioned on several different occasions, Marc Jacobs is my favourite designer. So when he hit New York Fashion Week this year in both of his shows (Marc by Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton) with this exciting lack of colour that we usually expect to see, I was totally gripped. As I mentioned when talking about this amazing trend in my latest YouTube video, this trend interests me so much because of how out of place it is but somehow it makes so much sense. Black and white in spring and summer? If you saw that on the high street runway then I think there would be a bit of uproar from fashion bloggers and fashion critics alike but somehow, Marc has managed to pull it off.
Sadly, not many of us can afford the likes of Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana (the third picture in above is Dolce and they seem to have also got on the monochrome bandwagon) so I have compiled a short list of some of the best monochrome items that are available at a lot more affordable prices this spring.
