Multiply not working over black (#1a1a1a) shape

I used Image Trace (Shades of Gray) on a photo of a hoodie and place it on top of a vector I made, setting it to Multiply - it doesn't show any detail if the vector is black (#1a1a1a), but does with other colours as you can see from the image below.

Luminosity is the closest to working, though even when I set it at 15% the colours look too bright - overlay works with black, but then white suffers.

 

Is there a way to fix this so that the details of the Image Trace appear over all colours?

Thanks for the reply.

 

For the screenshot I just threw together 3 examples - I probably should've spaced them out better.

 

I use Illustrator as my intention is to use vectors - this is for an online kit builder where users can choose between colours, patterns and so on - the files must be saved as SVG vectors and uploaded that way.
