“One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.” Karl Lagarfeld
Even though women have been wearing black for centuries, such color was linked to mourning, religious attire and maids uniforms.
It was only in the 1920’s that Coco Chanel introduced to the high feminine society the modern version of black: introducing the little black dress or the Model T of fashion (a reference to Ford Model T).
In 1926, as seen above, Vogue published a draw of Chanel’s black dress, predicting its success and was nothing but right.
Known as the “LBD”, became a symbol of elegance that remained until today. The LBD can be used in any occasion: from daily life to cocktail parties to formal dinners.
