There's something so chic about a black and white outfit. Even with today's bold color blocking trends, nothing will ever beat the simplicity of this classic combination. Taking inspiration from some of the greats (Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O., and Coco Chanel), how could I not wander around the beautifully kept streets of Kensington and admire the uniqueness of its charm?!
Even though I'm currently a Communications Master's student, today I felt like a fashion graduate. Taking Grace Coddington's advice to never look away from your surroundings, I found myself walking around and absorbing every detail that I could find like a sponge. I took many mental notes, as well as managing to draw some ideas down. I know our world is on the verge of obsession with technology, but there's a certain magical feeling that a pencil and a sketchbook still brings me. In college, my art history degree allowed us to take studio art classes where I found myself (surprisingly) drawn to geometric shapes. My lack of portrait drawing skills could have contributed to this, but nonetheless, I continued to be amused by mixing classic styles with geometric shapes. The colors - black & white - highlight these unique qualities and truly tie together this quintessential Kensington neighborhood. Don't you agree?
