Look of the Week
Geek chic is never been a look that I have aspired to, but after seeing the illustration created by Hallie Heald for Look of the Week, it is definitely a style that I am going to have to start thinking about. This is the first illustration that Hallie has created to The Rakish Gent and I love it. Based in New York, she is a freelance designer, stylist and illustrator. Since September 2013 she has been involved in am ambitious project to create an illustration every day for a year. In each of her paintings, she tries to capture the essence of the subject, whether that be through colours or gestures, or through expressions.
The above look, as per usual has been styled by me and are great individual pieces that come together to create a really stylish look. The cotton, cashmere and wool blend sweater in a cool cream shade is from one of my favourite brands. A.P.C. and looks great with a pair of light pink J. Crew chinos, both of which are currently available at Mr Porter. Finish the preppy look off with clean an cool sneakers from Common Projects at Oki-Ni and black round glasses from Linda Farrow at FarFetch.
