The Monochrome Edit

Crisp black and white ensembles often call to mind the swinging 60s. The history of monochrome in menswear stretches further as the O.G dandy Beau Brummell favoured sharply tailored two-tone separates in the Georgina era whilst his counterparts preferred opulently embroidered ensembles. We could go on to mention the influence Brummell’s style had on menswear but you only have to look toward the spring collections to see that black and white remains a staple in (almost) every man’s wardrobe. The designers created a plethora of monochrome pieces, offering it in a variety of ways. Riccardo Tisci subtly based the Givenchy collection around the opposing colours, breaking it up with bursts of floral patterns. Meanwhile in London, Nicomede Talavera’s signature black and white base was layered over a graphic feast of dusty pinks, rustic reds and sky blues whilst Liam Hodges recreated the boys scouts uniform in the haunting hues.
