{October 1, 2008}   Back in Black this winter?

There are few more cliched phrases in fashion than ‘…….. is the new black’. Dark Blues and Greys were the new black last winter. Examining the winter ranges of the top high street stores in 2008 however, it seems that black is most definitely back. We are not disheatrened by this turn of events – black can be utilised to great effect in any outfit. However, we would urge a note of caution-use black sparingly. The UK winter is usually dark enough, most of us need cheering up-it doesn’t do the spirits much good to see everyone looking like they’re en route to an Addams Family Convention. We at CCR would use use one item (top, trousers, jeans) of black together with a bright and vibrant counterpoint, we are pretty sure that most of you would do this anyway. Without any further ado here are some of our favourite black clothes from the winter ranges:

Topshop – embroidered Trim Boobtube. New release top, with a great embroidered neck detail.

John Rocha Moleskin Trousers – Moleskin is a wonderful material for the winter, soft and warm-yet it retains an airy quality, these Rocha trousers are a great example.
