Fashion trends constantly change, but one constant on the runway year after year are black and white designs. This year graphics are also very high on the list. Top fashion designers all have differing opinions on what’s hot, but everyone agrees that “Black and White” is here to stay.

VK Fall 2015

In the Fall 2015 issue of Vogue Knitting, Trisha Malcolm writes, “Black and White have been tempting us for a few seasons now, and I don't see our infatuation with this color combination changing anytime soon. We love the play of these two high-contrast shades.”

Inspired by Valentino’s black and white collection, Lidia Karabinech created a flattering silhouette with her newest “Yin and Yang" sweater. Contrast colors of black and white were placed in such a way to ensure your figure looks its best.

String Yarns Yin Yang Sweater

Soft-edged panel insets of black and white seem to float on the body creating a very feminine and modern look. The wave of white continues throughout the sleeve creating a flowing movement from start to finish. Our monthly Tutorial Video will show you how to achieve a seamless transition of color by working Intarsia on the body. The sleeves use the color block method so that you will breeze through those. 

With this garment, we let the graphic do the talking and planned it over a classic silhouette. The very sophisticated and chic design perfectly matches our Filatti Biagioli Modesto 100% Cashmere DK. We show it with a turtleneck, but you can make the neck as short or tall as you like. 

The classic, monochromatic world of black and white fashion is totally timeless and easily blends into any existing wardrobe. As Vogue Knitting states, “Black and White throws any pattern into high focus.” Check out The Knitter's Guide to Wearing Black & White from the String Yarns Blog for an in-depth review of the black and white phenomenon.
