UPDATED AND RELATABLE, THE NOVEL MONO APPEAL

Street Style MJ AND STUFF Mahlatse James

This obsession calls for no halt. I am a fashion man fixated with the odd idea to reel out all styling tricks tried and tested and my pull towards the powerful impact of a black and white look is nowhere near ending. As much as I have admitted many-a-time to a quest for revising fashion’s rules, one that remains more constant (than it is repetitive) is the superbly varying appeal for wardrobe choices with a connective duct from the very tip of my toes, all the way up to the longest of my hair follicles. Let me break it down; black-on-black clothe is never not charming (hello! Have you seen fashion people on a job? Talk about the ONLY enduring sense of uniformity.), the same goes for the idea to smartfully sway into a frequently updated monochromatic side. That said –and trialled, it is the raging attraction to calculated styling measures that sets us apart as we interpret trends. The undeniable power in one’s talent to sensibly pair bits and bobs with a plenty of personality, so to say. One of my few clearly adored fashion pledges include adopting a black and white formula with all the trickery known to mankind, as a nod of sorts to promote a visual statement which can possibly transcend age, sub-culture, gender and perhaps a period bygone.

Plainly put; this look in these pics marks my current state of mind and reflects the desire to balance my influences. For instance, I am not mad the idea to bring in a bit of sport –see the flat peak cap, linked with a baseball shirt atop a pseudo-tropical shirt -anybody keen to acknowledge the pattern play here?  Do spot the cage style metal cuffs for a geometric addition. Included in the contemporary intricacy thus far, I simply had to nod at a retro vibe, and this came through via a classic bowtie paired with Mihara Yasuhiro x PUMA’s refreshing take on the 1930’s style menswear shoe staple; the disc brogues to round off this style story.
