-'crisp' in this sense is to do with the feel of the material and has nothing to do with its colour. In a book, for example, someone may talk about the glorious feeling of slipping between crisp, white sheets. It's the feel which counts - that they are freshly laundered, probably using starch, and there is a slight resistence as you get into them.

Its crisp black and white or black
