Something about head-to-toe black seems really appealing right now – it’s the inevitable backlash against the brights of Nu Rave, and after a summer of cavorting about in shorts and printed dresses, it looks so fresh and sophisticated. And judging from Stefano Pilati’s somber fall collection for Yves Saint Laurent and Gareth Pugh’s dip into darks, black is – well, the new black. The key to monochromatic dressing is to pay close attention to the silhouette – when you aren’t going nuts with color, you can get more experimental with shape and proportion. That’s why we love Danish label Wackerhaus – we covet their entire fall collection, which looks so stark and tough, and also really beautifully-made. Just make sure to wear blush and lip color, or risk being nicknamed "Morticia Addams" - just like Irina Lazareanu was in grade school! --ALISON COOL
