Black is back on Fashion Week runways

Black reigned on Wednesday's Fashion Week runways. Nanette Lepore's collection was cool and colorless as was former Coach designer, and first lady Michelle Obama favorite, Reed Krakoff. Badgley Mischka's black evening wear didn't need sequins to dazzle and even stylist Rachel Zoe entered the noir zone (And we know how much Zoe loves a white suit.)

Maybe color has run its course? Did we deem saturated shades too hard to wear?  Then again, how can we be futuristic in hot pink?

Whatever the reason, black is back and we like its forward vibe.  It is sleek, skinny pantsuits, peplum gowns and dresses. Black is smoking in the high-low silhouette and an inky sheath with an artfully placed slit is chic at its best. And we can't forget accessories:  sunglasses, shoe-booties, envelope clutches are all must-haves in black.

 

Black is the new black.

But really, did it ever get old?
