Black Wonder

Black Beat White Wonder is the name for designer Siki Im's summer collection. It was recently presented at the New York Fashion Week. White has apparently in fact been beaten by black as the color of choice, an unsual but stylish option for summer clothing.
The former senior designer at Karl Lagerfeld explained that he was inspired by William Golding's Lord of the Flies. Black flies, that is? (silly pun, I know) Perhaps, but also elegant, and impeccably tailored.
Skirts come in multiple lengths, as well as wide trousers. Cord necklaces and bands, also in black, and the absence of shirts, bring in a cathartic "primitive" element to an otherwise refined collection.
