Seeing stripes...

Whether it's a smaller accessory or accent, or a large scale overall pattern - there's nothing quiet about black and white stripes. The perfect balance between bold and understated - at once they grab your attention yet there's nothing complicated about their message. Straight, clean uncomplicated lines in the clearest palette possible.

I must admit I have always been a little frightened of horizontal stripes but these images look great!
