Look of the Week
Look of the Week is again illustrated by the very talented Mr Ste Johnson. Ste works on a range of illustrations and commissions focusing on lifestyle, fashion and style. I loved the last illustration that he created for The Rakish Gent on Valentines Day and love the distinct and individual style that he brings to all of his work. I am thrilled that he has created pieces for this site, and am incredibly thankful for the time that he took to create this look.
The look that Ste has illustrated, styled by me, is a look that I call urban cool. It features really wearable pieces that are also strong style statements. River Island do print really well and this green abstract print parka is the perfect example of that. Nothing works better with a printed jacket, than plain dark denim and these black stretch skinny jeans named Sid are also from River Island. Statement trainers are still big, and these Valentino sneakers from Mr Porter are one of the best pairs that I have seen, featuring leather and suede panels. The dark shade of green allows for the sneakers to be easily dressed up or down. Finally, finishing off the look is a backpack from Mi-Pac at Asos, in black textured ostrich style skin.
