English term or phrase: contracts with the black
The colour range, on the other hand, becomes more brilliant, and a shade of red is introduced which contracts with the black and with the shades of grey.
More jacquard fabrics and fabrics with embossed wefts, with decorations inspired by the Orient.

I don't know what does it mean "contract with" in terms of colors... Does it men it goes well with, or something like that?
I'll appreciate your suggestions or advise.
