Look of the Week
Trying something different, this weeks illustrated look features an item which will feature as the key piece again next week, where it will be styled by a different illustrator and with a range of different items.
This week, styling the key bomber jacket in a high end designer look, the illustrated look has been created by artist ALEXMADEMEDOIT. Established in 2009, the illustration concept ALEXMADEMEDOIT mixes sharp line illustration with digital manipulation to create really stunning modern art. In house projects like "Illustrate Me Sexy" and "Girls on Paper" have allowed to concept to create a really strong fashion illustration message, which embraces homour. This is the first menswear commission for ALEXMADEMEDOIT and I am beyond thrilled with the refreshing, bold and courageous illustration that has been created.
As I say above, the key piece in the look is the Mihara Yasuhiro feather embroidered bomber jacket from FarFetch. I am a huge fan of the label Japanese brand and this jacket is one of the best pieces from the last collection. Styling the bomber with other high end designer pieces was not difficult - a pair of great J.W Anderson slim trousers (at Mr Porter) make a nice change from denim, and the Margiela ring at Matches Fashion makes a real style statement. The simple black Topman leather sneakers add to the luxe factor with their high shine.
A huge thanks to ALEXMADEMEDOIT for the brilliant illustration. I am thrilled with the illustration of the high end look for this week. You can find out more about the concept illustration company on their website as well as by following on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Make sure to come back to The Rakish Gent next week to see the same bomber jacket styled in a high street way.
