"Colorblocking was not my favorite trend — I kind of raged against it in my monochromatic way. I pretty much moved to New York because of Woody Allen’s Manhattan
(an ode to New York in black and white), so I guess it’s no surprise that a large part of my wardrobe is black, white, and...black and white prints. It just feels right here; It’s such a graphic city. Also, what’s with this idea that color is "fun" and black is "serious"? A black and white palette always inspires me to play with layering textures and shapes, and it’s a great canvas for piling on gold accessories, like these snakeskin high tops (and since I’ve yet to be mistaken for a mime, I guess this tactic is working). I understand why we all gravitated towards color last year, but for me, black and white can be just as...uplifting."
