I have teamed up with Shakuhachi to create my ultimate Summer look, styling new arrivals from their SS13 collection.
The look I chose to style was my take on the coveted monochrome trend.
Chances are, you have already jumped on board the most powerful contrast of all, however what I was trying to create with this all Shakuhachi ensemble is an updated, super-sleek aesthetic — essentially taking monochrome up a notch.
I think monochrome is an easy, safe trend and can sometimes fall in to the *yawn* category. Of course throwing black and white together is going to create a great outfit, duh. So don’t play it safe!! Introduce textures and fabrics which wouldn’t normally be worn together such as snake skin, lace and neoprene.
Shak will be posting an interview and more in the coming days so stay tuned!
