LOOK OF THE WEEK
This week’s illustrated rakish gent channels a smart and somewhat Mod inspired look. For Mods, proportions were slim and slightly exaggerated, which are qualities that illustrator Macarena Ramirez has captured with ease. A design student based in Madrid, she is currently working on a Fine Arts and Fashion Design course and finds that her illustrations are a way to combine the art and fashion worlds together. I love the pensive stance and straight out of the 60s look of her illustration.
To capture the Mod look, this Margaret Howell pinstripe wool suit is a great place to start. Still slim, but somehow slouchy at the same time, it captures one of this seasons biggest trends for dressing easy and without too much focus on trends. A simple pair of black Church’s Oxford shoes from Mr Porter and the always classic white shirt (this one is a white cotton twill from Reiss) are all you need to complete the easy elegant look.
Many thanks to Macarena for her wonderful illustration. You can find out more about her on her blog as well as by following her on Instagram.
