Black on Black

The crown jewels of our latest Olivia Kim-curated Pop-In Shop, GIFT & GO, are a series of five blacked-out Rolexes customized exclusively for us in collaboration with Bamford Watch Department.

Make no mistake: Each watch is literally the only one of its kind in the world. Through advanced technologies, our friends at London-based Bamford take brand-new luxury watches, custom-color each individual component, and reassemble the watch to its original premium-grade specifications.

How great is this picture of picture-takers?

The rogues’ gallery of street-style photographers above—snapped on the streets of Milan by our fashion-week guest editor, Australian blogger Zanita Morgan—goes to show that all-black everything is a look that’s not just for mimes and punk rockers. The lensmen above pull it off with aplomb in a variety of styles, from a classic black T-shirt to more avant-garde drop-crotch pants. The muted palette makes it all about fit and accessories, calling attention to their individualized selections in shoes, hats, glasses, beards, and of course high-tech hardware. [SHOP BLACK.]

And then there’s the shot below—evidence that the fairer sex doesn’t look half bad in all black, either. For more photos by Zanita, from Fashion Weeks around the world, visit our sister blog, The Thread.
