The Freshest Ways to Mix Black and Blue This Spring

There's a long-running misconception that navy and black should never be worn together—a fallacy that was once again promptly debunked when everyone from Calvin Klein's Italo Zucchelli to Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri at Valentino sent their versions of the pairing down the spring 2014 runways.

Designers not only brought the shades together within the same outfits but coupled them in single pieces. Be it a Valentino blazer (navy with a black lapel), Hermès' two-tone calfskin oxfords (below), or J.M. Weston's sleek cardholder (above) from an eight-piece collection released to mark the opening of its new Paris store on rue Saint Honoré, the combination feels as fresh as it is effortlessly sophisticated.
