Look of the Week
Skater style is big. Loads of high street brands are doing this look really well, and the 2 labels featured in Look of the Week are 2 of the best. Illustrator Liyu Hsu has created the above illustration for The Rakish Gent which is inspired by skateboarders style and looks like the spitting image of Anthony Kiedis of The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The look that I styled moves away from the more familiar monochrome colours that are often seen on skaters. I love the galactic print on this mesh T shirt from Topman which work really well with burgundy coated stretch skinny jeans, also from Topman. Worn with great plain white plimsolls with toe caps and grey oversize beanie, both from Asos.
A huge thanks to Liyu for his 5th illustration for The Rakish Gent. You can find out more about him and his work at his website Liyu Hsu .
