Black-and-White Stripes as a match (or a fab clash?) to the Bright and the Flowery

Spring style: 
From the 10 Crosby Derek Lam Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear

In my previous "Styling tips for today" post, I have wrote about stripes: matching the long-sleeve, stripes tee with a cropped jacket.

Now, as for Spring 2012, Derek Lam has launched his 10 Crosby line with lots of stripes, especially the black-and-white stripes as a complement to the Spring style (bright, flowery). Not only it would flatter the outfits, but also it gave an unexpected pattern pop..

Here are the lookbook from 10 Crosby Derek Lam Spring 2012 RTW:

Black-and-white stripes with flowery prints:

Besides 'the stripes', I also love this 'graphic, color block' look:
The bright graphic, color-blocked, diamond-printed pants matched with the black waxed-cotton top (that looks like leather).

And, this bright yellow maxi dress:
How if we give this bright look a well-tailored black-and-white-stripes jacket/blazer? What do you think?

So, do you like this style?
