No, this post has nothing to do with any Black Friday Sales Promotions.
Why do people fear black? Top to toe black still brings disgust and contempt and is widely shunned by plenty of superstitious people in Asia and seen as bad luck. Here are some of the comments you would get if your wore Ann Demeulemeester's Fall Winter 2009-2010 collection out here.
"You're only dressed like a funeral for a funeral if you wear all black"
"Did someone pass away in your family? If so, I'm sorry to hear that."
"Are you some goth kid or something?"
"Punk rock is so over already."
Ann Demeulemeester's Fall Winter 2009-2010 collection contained marvelous mainly black pieces in bits and bobs, random wool, jacquard and fur pieces with bunched-up shapeless, baggy pants with hanging crotch area and hundreds of wool braids just hanging loose, waiting to be caught in the train doors and dragging you onto the bloody tracks to hell.
"Cool" is not usually the word associated with this (Ann Demeulemeester's Fall Winter 2009-2010) kind of dressing. "Messed up" is.
My teen punk goth days are so over.
