“Black is not sad. Bright colours are what depress me. They’re so… empty. Black is poetic. How do you imagine a poet? In a bright yellow jacket? Probably not.” —  Ann Demeulemeester

“I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour.” —  Wednesday Addams

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy — but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don’t bother you — don’t bother me.” —  Yohji Yamamoto
