Look of the Week
This weeks illustrated look is by a new illustrator to The Rakish Gent - Rosie Beard. Rosie is a playful illustrator and artist, and her work mainly involves fairy tale like characters as well as folklore figures. Her work is mainly done in pen and ink, and she has carved quite the niche for herself in fashion with her freehand and sewing machine embroidery techniques and her utterly unique style of illustration.
The look that Rosie has so creatively illustrated, styled by me is one called urban dandy. It consists of a wax Barbour jacket, from the Steve McQueen inspired collection which is a great all weather piece. The jacket is worn with a pair of classic slim fit selvedge jeans from Levis, available at Mr Porter. The rakish, printed Balenciaga scarf is from Matches Fashion and the boots which are top of my lusted after items list, are a pair of Douglas boots from Dr Martens.
A huge thank you to Rosie for her illustration. You can find out more about her, on her website Rosie Beard.
