Black Illusion (Part 1)…

This is a first of a series.
Black is like a shadow on the wall… It slides, it is a “passe-partout”, it conveys confidence.
There is an idea of black. Radical, tolerant and close to all the greys.
A black illusion series starting today with the most basic ever season remix, and with such a starting point as the trench.

A must-have wardrobe. This one is from PLECTRUM BY BEN SHERMAN. Tailored & cut sharp in a black waterproof gabardine.

To naturally combine with a white tee. The “Light my fire” tee from JBC. It is our immense pleasure to finally write about this Belgian brand that reaches levels of uncontrollable celebrity. Founded in 1975 from father to son, JBC expanded all over the country and a bit more… Not to mention that their latest campaigns feature the endless Naomi.
This is from their legends collection.

Suit pants from CLUB MONACO. A classical cut with rebellious comfort for these almost ‘ivy looking’ trousers. Rolled up hems for a soft tweed fabric.

The penny loafer from SEBAGO, without the penny. The basic of the basics, but a beautifully institutional one. Looks good with every wardrobe item and it must be worn sockless. This is a commandment.

No fear… This is the one plausible means to stay safe during the day.
You cannot realize what black can do for you…
