In summer it’s easy – black something on tanned skin, throw in a little bit of gold jewellery and immediately you get that certain kind of sicilian sexiness from a Dolce+Gabbana ad. But chosing the one color that actually absorbs the little light there is in a muddy, lightless and greyish winter-world – that’s what you could call ‘Enhancing the Inescapable’. Or ‘Celebrating Depression’. Black underlines your pale winter skin (in a slightly ‘Twilight‘ sort of way..), makes you look more dramatic, more mysterious, maybe even a little frightening (hello, Nosferatu…). It leaves room for speculation, that’s for sure and it’s definitely not boring. Especially when teamed with a Warhol-ian white shock of hair and and Andy-glasses (and clogs, how cute!). That’s fun. Good-bye depression, hello Pop-Art!
