Some of my black outfits

Do I wear enough black?

Black makes up for more than 70% of my wardrobe.

My client told me the other day in most households in Hong Kong, only 1/10 loads of laundry is black. 2 loads will be white and then 7 loads of coloured clothing. I realized I was definitely off the curve. I went to the office the next day and asked my peers and we all agreed, we wear black almost as a shroud, a comfort blanket shade. The logic is simple: when in doubt, wear black.

Funny isn’t it? We, the creative people in PR/marketing/advertising/design are the ones who stick to our uniforms, conformed by a shade that’s not even a colour.
