The Luxe Report: Black and Yellow

Hello, LDV readers. Hope you're all off to a fabulous start for 2012. It's Rebecca from Young Sophisticates, with an all new Luxe Report!
There's a cool new trend in the world of high fashion: black and yellow! This two color pairing was all over the runway - lots of spring 2012 collections featured black on yellow (including Monique Lhuillier, Derek Lam, Yigal Azrouël, Carolina Herrera). Oscar de la Renta's black and yellow gown (pictured above) is unbelievably gorgeous.
This surprisingly chic color combination works in fashion, as well as for your home.
Even though the trend comes from the fashion world, I think it translates just as well to the home. Add modern accents to your home in black and yellow. You'll be pleased with the fresh and on trend color scheme, regardless of whether you try out the trend in your wardrobe or home.

I've been into more that chartreuse-y yellow as in the second photo, paired with black/white or dark navy/white. So super chic! Thx for the inspiration!

I love the colour combination for interiors. Black can be really harsh and a bright colour is needed to cheer up the atmosphere.
I'm thinking of doing my office in Yellow and White but might consider adding some black accents as well.

I am in love with this gown. Every time I see black and yellow, I'm reminded of the first time I saw it in the New York Times. Just grand. Thanks for the image.
