William Safire:

Black is the new black. Walking briskly down Madison Avenue in New York, I passed the window of the designer DKNY, but the display therein slowed my gait to a lugubrious plod. All the mannequins in the windows were clothed in funereal chic — outfits suitable for matronly morticians at an undertaker’s convention.
