Look of the Week
I am incredibly excited because look of the week is this week by a new illustrator to The Rakish Gent. Louis-Nicolas Darbon is an incredible artist that I have wanted to work with for some time. Now residing in London, French born Louis, has been painting since the tender age of 2. His work within the fashion industry has been inspired by travel across the world. His work is truly breathtaking, whether it be art work or illustration. The above illustration is one of the best to have been featured on The Rakish Gent to date.
The look that Louis has so vividly created has been styled by me and is inspired by the futuristic cowboy collection from Topman Design Spring/ Summer 2014. The gold gilet is a real statement piece and works best when worn with a dark plain colour, especially with the black floral embroidered shirt, also from Topman Design. Adding to the rocker look of the style are a pair of amazing slim cut coated black denim jeans by Balenciaga at Mr Porter, and metallic loafers from Maison Martin Margiela at FarFetch.
