Look of the Week
This week, the brilliant Clare Nield brings us an illustration that she has based on the rapper and judge on BBC's The Voice, Will.I.Am. Clare is an incredibly talented illustrator, that has created some great looks for The Rakish Gent and the above is just one of the many great ones that she has done.
The look that Clare has expertly illustrated, styled by me is made up of 4 statement items, that are bold and daring. They would work well when worn as a statement, with simpler pieces, but they also work really well when combined. The floral print shirt is from PS by Paul Smith and is currently available at FarFetch. The plain shirt with a dash of floral print works really well with dark basics. Worn over the shirt is an amazing statement double breasted sleeveless coat from Alexander McQueen at Mr Porter. The piece creates a fantastic sharp silhouette. The flecked, tapered skinny trousers in charcoal are at Topman, as are the ponyskin slipper shoes, from Dune.
