Words by Matt Huxley
You all know that my fave combo of all time is definitely black on black. I love the statement that monochrome makes, and being a tall, pale figure in all black, it definitely cuts a striking look.
However to avoid looking like a makeup artist on a break, there’s a few things worth adding in. Texture is one of them. I’ve achieved this by tying a long, cheesecloth shirt around my waist. Not only does it billow out behind me as I walk like I’m batman, but it also serves to break up the silhouette of the look, taking it to the next level. Plus the contrasting fabric adds an extra dimension to the outfit.
I’ve also added biker jeans to give a tougher edge to this look. I’ve accessorised with my Vanacci beaded bracelet, the lockstone technology of this piece is really cool, it actually absorbs scent. So when I squirt it with the current scent on rotation (John Varvatos’ Vintage) it releases it slowly over a period of time.
