LOOK OF THE WEEK
CONTEMPORARY OCCASION WEAR
As the festive party season invites start to land in your letterbox, here’s how to nail contemporary occasion wear.
Black tie has had its day hasn’t it? Well maybe not but its always nice to see a new variation on an old classic. This wonderful Richard James suit is a great case in point. The plush suit has been created in ice grey cotton corduroy. With notched lapels, ivory stain lining and straight leg trousers it is everything that you would expect from a Savile Row tailoring experience, with a fantastically modern and youthful edge.
Keeping with that youthful feel, we would opt to eschew the classic white shirt for a light roll neck from Topman (which aids against the winter cold and also looks pretty damn cool against the grey tones of the suit) and contrasting grey linen loafers from Duke & Dexter. All in all, we don’t think that there is anything more suited to a young man donning a formal look for an evening event.
This week we have teamed up with illustrator Hodeya Louis. Based in Winchester, NY, she is a professional artist and illustrator and the recipient of a number of prizes including “Distinguished Artist of Israel”. Explore her work further on her website, and follow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
