Trendspotting: Black and White

It was everywhere during NYFW.

The overarching trend from New York, one that seemed to touch almost every collection, was black and white. Whether in floral prints (Pam & Gela, Tracy Reese), checks (Derek Lam, Ralph Lauren), stripes (Jill Stuart, Peter Som), houndstooth (Reem Acra), or even a collection dedicated almost entirely to the two colors (Robert Rodriguez), it was everywhere.

And it wasn't just an American obsession either--a number of shows from London Fashion Week, which wrapped today, also seemed enamored of the monochromatic combo.
