My friend Maryann, who lives with her husband in Tranquility, NJ, which is as rural and tranquil a place as you'd find under two hours from NYC, once remarked that cows freaked her out a bit. 'They don't look natural', she said. She meant, their black and white starkness. You don't usually see that in nature, apart from the dead of winter, after a freshly fallen snow.
My friend Lisa, the Original Dot, in NY, once famously said that 'nothing in life is that black and white, there are always shades of grey'. I guess that's what I love so much about the crispness of black and white, in fashion: it's so clean, so simple. I'm going thru a black and white phase: often completing the trilogy with some nice camel or tan. They showed the Danish restaurant Noma on Celebrity Masterchef last night, and that's EXACTLY what I'm loving right now: minimal, stark, but with natural tones and textures.
