White, Black but feeling Blue

White House/Black Market has the blues. The women’s clothing chain, which has always stayed true to its black and white palette, is dipping into ocean hues with a new Summer Blue Collection that includes dresses, tops, shoes, belts and jewelry. It’s only natural they’d want to mix it up a bit – black and white are classic and always sharp, but scream for the occasional color shot. Still, it would be a shame to lose the focus that has defined and distinguished them. It’s a slippery slope to coral, and then it’s all over.
