Look of the Week
Lina Chaparro is a super talented illustrator, and I am really pleased to be able to feature her work on The Rakish Gent this week. Influenced by an ongoing love of fashion, art & design she has studied as an industrial designer, whilst also taking courses in illustration and painting techniques. Her work is recognisable for the use of black lines and shapes mixed with bright colours. Her edgy creations are mostly made from adding ink and acrylic and through digital media.
I am really blown away by the skill and detail in all of Lina's work, which you can see better in this close up on the details of the bag and shoes.
The look that Lina has illustrated, styled by me shows my fondness for all things black. The amazing black leather jacket is from Acne Studios at Mr Porter and looks great when paired with black super skinny spray on jeans from Topman. The lace print detail on the Alexander McQueen bag adds an interesting contrast, especially with the Grenson brogue boots, also in black.
Many thanks to Lina for her amazing work. You can find out more about her on her website, as well as follow her on Instagram and Facebook.
