The Mode Museum in Antwerp is holding an exhibition celebrating black within clothes. 'BLACK. Masters of Black in Fashion & Costume' examines the many shades of black, it's history with clothes and what it has symbolized through the centuries such as mourning and luxury. Antwerp has a special relationship with black as it was famous in the 16th and 17th century for dying everything black. Featuring Ann Demeulemeester, Olivier Theyskens, Dirk Van Saene, Givenchy (Riccardo Tisci), Chanel and Gareth Pugh.

I love black and even though the sun was shining today and I had a slight urge for a white shirt and blue jeans combo I couldn't do it and the old faithful Black was worn instead in the fashion of a cut up baggy t-shirt and a leather skirt.

So who wants to take a trip with me? x
