I wasn't surprised when Derya told me that she works as a beauty specialist. I like her clean and puristic chic. And it didn't surprise me at all when I learned that most of her outfits are based on the color black. It's been said that woman who wear black lead colorful lives. Although it sounds like a paradox, it seems to be true. Coco Chanel or Audrey Hepburn for example. Although their lives were exiting and busy (colorful), they wore dominantly black clothes. Most women's wardrobes are full of black clothes, from little black dresses to black lingerie. What makes this color so popular? I think, the simple reason is that black goes with everything! It doesn't matter what your personal style is, you can look elegant, conservative, edgy, gothic ... and anything else. Black is black and nothing can compare to it. Black is always "in" and always classy and always timeless. By wearing black, you are already making a statement that you are strong and respectable. "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.
Derya combines black clothes with golden jewelry. A perfect match. 
The German / French label Augustin Teboul is known for it's luxurious and clear-black designs. It is definitely worth to check their collection to get some inspiration for black styles.
