Today I have an appointment with a client interested in purchasing Israeli art. As it is our very first meeting, we arranged to meet at a coffee shop where I will show her art catalogues and images on my laptop, in order to get an idea of the kind of art that she may like.
I like to wear black and white to a first meeting with a client. I find that these colors accommodate whatever the client might wear.
Black and white is a big trend this summer alongside the “flower power”. Most of the B &W shown on the runway are pure colors, which I find a little too formal, even harsh. A pop of color adds a lot. I also like to liven the outfit with a play of subtle pattern and texture in the material.
So, here is my interpretation of the trend:
I am wearing a black, lightly shimmering skirt, with a white top. The skirt material has delicate stripes.
The hint of color is provided by the orange bag and necklace.
I like the whimsical contrast between the high tech look of the skirt and the African necklace of old African amber and Ethiopian silver.
