Our Tribute to The Beloved Black

by Drishti Mistry

As fall approaches, we point to the iconoclastic hue that never goes out of style. If we could write a love letter to this timeless colour, it would read somewhat like this, “Dear black, you’re the midnight monotone that will always remain a mainstay in our wardrobes and there’ll always be a special spot saved for you in our closets but not without reason – you’ve been our closest confidant on days when we’ve not felt the most confident about our bodies and you’ve been our saviour when the question of ‘what to wear?’ haunted us to no ends. After years of leaning on you to pull our looks together, we can rightly confess that you’ve come to be the most hardworking member of our wardrobes – you function round the clock and round the year without tiring out our outfits. Few hues can concoct a no-nonsense yet a well-rounded look for work or the after-hours like you do. While we don’t fully understand what it is about you, you’d be flattered to hear that you possess a certain enchanting quality to instantly uplift our ensembles – it’s as if you are the secret recipe to casting a sartorial spell. May be that’s why fashion icons (both fictional and actual) like Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Louise Brooks, Rei Kawakubo, Norma Kamali, Morticia Adams, Grace Coddington, Karl Lagerfeld and Holly Golightly among others have had their life-long love affairs with you and so many others continue to do so even today. On that note, we’ll conclude with the promise that you’ll always be on our minds every time we find ourselves in a fashion fix (even when we don’t) and that we’ll never be able to sever sartorial ties with you. Yours truly, loyalists forever.” Did this hit too close to home? Then you can thank us later for what’s to follow. For those of you like us, for whom nothing but the inkiest hue will do, we’ve rounded up the chicest iterations from the website so that you never have to bid farewell to your beloved black.
