Paris Shopping: Black Is the New Black
In Paris black is the new black. Mais, chérie, that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little creativity to the mix when you’re out for some Paris shopping or you’re planning your ensembles at home. So we put together a few styles that accomplish just that.
The geometric jacquard of Zero + Maria Cornejo’s Biri dress is inspired by a field of crop circles the designer photographed from an airplane window, and the black bodice is cut from crisp stretch-twill that hews to the body for a flattering shape. With our love of leather, we couldn’t resist the sleek and chic urban appeal of DKNY’s black leather and canvas dress. And timeless yet trend-tapping Victoria Beckham has taken the fashion world by storm with her covetable collection of dresses. Shaded in black, gray blue and olive stripes, this satin-twill style is our latest favorite.
For the finishing touches, we went back to black with sleekly stunning shoes by McQ Alexander McQueen and Brian Atwood, plus beautiful bags by NewbarK and Anya Hindmarch. Les Parisiennes are known for their love of black and their impeccable style, and in these stunning looks, you’ll fit right in.
