Light and darkness, yin and yang, good and bad, day and night

Black and white are heavily packed with symbolic potential. Although the West regards white as one that denotes innocence, purity and joy does not mean that all cultures of the world have given the same meaning to these colors. While black is the color we wrap around to mourn for dear people in China, the situation is completely different. It is exactly the white one that the deceased descends from this world.

Black and white combinations are truly yin and yang mode, and this well-known symbol perfectly describes what it is about. As far as the visual perception of black or white is concerned, they are contrary to the opposite. Black absorbs all wavelengths until white reflects. So full of contradictions that can not live without one another just as yin and yang suggest. Even the shadow can not be seen in complete darkness, but it needs light to live.

These two opposites are not represented as enemies but create a symbiosis in which they become complementary and allow one another to further life. It is fortunate that this fashionable year is marked by uncoordinated love for such combinations. Black and white clothes can be worn in various combinations.

Do you like the railways just elect. Modify the blue white stripes of the captains of some distant ships with this chic combination that resembles Parisian artists from the middle of the previous century. They sit and drank an espresso with their curtailed berets, mumbling something in their chin or gesturing gently while describing their latest project.

Geometry and print bring us into a whole new world of the relationship of characters on the fabric. We look at the hypnotized black and white print squares, circles, and triangles. Suddenly we hear drums and call savannah. Yes, the animal pattern is re-modern. As nature only knows well what it is doing. Get this season at least one piece of zebra pattern and combine it with neutral pieces.

Contradictions are always appealing and therefore each combination becomes even more noticeable if it is done in black and white. Each of us is partly on the bright part of the darkness as we break through the chaos of everyday life. We know that the dark side has biscuits, but stay with us this summer wise happy and (relatively) good.
