Lesson Unlearned: Mix Black and Blue
You might have heard it's a style faux pas, but the two really look great together.
I was fortunate enough to be working at Valentino under three different head designers. I remember one collection that was hugely controversial had a coat that I adore and specifically remember to this day. It was a navy blue wool coat that had these amazing sleeves that ended in two rolls—each about the size of neck pillow—of black woven fabric. It was gorgeous. Throughout that same collection there were navy dresses with black lace and navy outfits all paired with black tights. The men’s collection had a linen navy blazer with black piping that I still wear every summer. So give it a try. For once it’s good to be black and blue.
