Look of the Week
I am really excited to be able to showcase the talents of Mr Achraf Amiri on The Rakish Gent this week. Born in Brussels and now living in London, Achraf is an incredibly creative independent Art Director and illustrator. Inspired by fashion and art, his creations are self reflective with a touch of dark humour. His illustrations in particular, are much more than drawings as they procure real emotion and depth.
Achraf's conceptual illustration is based on a look styled by me which is perfect for Spring. The key piece in the look is the beautiful blossom print Dolce & Gabbana shirt which works really well when worn with these belted, sharp grey trousers from Bottega Veneta (both available at Mr Porter). The trousers create an amazingly slim silhouette. Keeping with the wearing grey in spring tone, is the Lanvin leather pochette is large enough to carry a notepad or small electronic device. The Mr. Hare penet suede and leather loafers complement the rest of the look perfectly, and along with the Lanvin bag, is available at Matches Fashion.
A big thank you to Achraf for creating the amazing illustration for this post. You can find out more about him on his website and follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
