If it's not see-through, it's not couture--at least that's what you would think, looking at the Fall 2009 runways. Transparent black and white looks were popular, as almost everyone included them in their collections. Although this seems a classic direction to take, the transparency trend may also have been tipped off by Chanel's stellar Spring 2009 couture collection, which included quite a few gauzy transparent looks. Regardless, it's safe to say that black tie events everywhere are in for a seductive treat.
I enjoy changing the look of my kitchen in order to go with the weather and season. However the basics — things I rarely change — are in black and white. Filling a kitchen with black and white accessories creates a wonderful foundation for decorative accents. To get in the Christmas spirit I will add red and green. For New Year's, I'll ditch those and supplement silver and gold.
