“Manners and Rules of Good Society” is the name of a book published in London in 1887 in the Victorian era. The content was more like a guide on how to use, in periods of mourning, the obligatory color for sadness – black. It is a mistake who thinks that only black held the weight of farewell. White was also associated with mourning in medieval Europe; but, hey, only for the queens. Was dressed in white only the majesty that lost one of his nobles. Fortunately, in the 1930s, the double B & W ( little by little) got rid of a huge weight when fashion designer Coco Chanel introduced such colors into women’s clothing.
Today the duo is associated with elegance and what is classic and enduring. But modernity and practicality also have a special place in the option for B & W parts. To unite these two colors, the photos come with a high collar blouse and all buttoned with pearls by the eternal Chanel. The pants, symbol of today’s woman, is of the contemporary designer Anne Fontaine. Two French stylists who chose / choose black and white as the central colors of the women’s wardrobe.
