LOOK OF THE WEEK
Whilst we may have moved to much swankier new premises than the previous blog, The Rakish Gent is still an ardent admirer of fashion illustration and vows to keep displaying the work of the really talented illustrators that are featured. With that in mind, I am thrilled to be able to exhibit this work by Nicholas Frazier. I have long been an admirer of his work, which combines his love of style, in particular menswear, with a skilled hand in paper cutting. His completely original works are sharp, precise and sophisticated and bears all of the clean lines and simple silhouettes that I am a big fan of.
Nicholas’ skilful talents are put to good use in creating the look of the week, styled by me. Based around a great Prince of Wales three button coat from Maison Martin Margiela, the coat is styled ultra simply with a black rollneck Christopher Kane sweater, with both items currently available at Matches Fashion. Keeping to the simple theme, a pair of skinny jeans from cool Parisian brand Sandro at Mr Porter and a pair of classic Chelsea boots at Asos finish off the look to perfection.
A huge thanks to Nicholas for taking the time and effort required to create the very first illustration for the all new Rakish Gent. You can find out more about his work on his website and his blog, as well as following him on his inspirational Instagram page.
