Black was off the radar for a while, surpassed
by every other shade of the rainbow .
Shades of blue, green, purple and crimson
were all dubbed the 'new black'.
Returning in all its dignified glory,
black is so definitely an option again.
I don't think it will be as prominent
as it was in the 80's early 90's
when the Japanese designers like Yamamoto,
Rei Kawakaba, Matsuda and Miyake ruled,
and Maclaren chanted 'he wore black,
she wore black';
