Where Did Black Come From



I admit it. I lived breathlessly waiting for Ms. Vreeland to let me know that "pink is the navy blue of India" or "blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola." I wasn't allowed to paint my walls vermillion so I did my nails, long stabby things for a while, in Raven Red.  There was no way to disguise my staring that day long ago when she waited to cross Madison.

I was at a Comme des Garcons show in Paris and the collection was, gasp, black. And everyone was whispering another phrase "black is the new black.
