of the trousers
The first thing you are bound to think when you pick up these trousers is of teaming them up with a sweater, an oversized top, or maybe a fine round-necked cashmere. Perhaps the high die-cut necked knit which we showed on the catwalk with these trousers? If you prefer this as a weekend look, or want a more informal look altogether, you can combine these trousers with a short jacket, like a bolero and wear a fine jersey of a slightly longer length underneath. This look goes well wherever you go, and not only because black and white really are the colours which sum up the sober look par excellence.
When it comes to footwear, the obvious choice is a sports shoe, but don’t overlook how well a mule-type shoe would go (those without heels), to add a really chic detail.
But be careful! Don’t be tempted to wear a white shirt with these trousers; they will overwhelm it and the shirt will end up looking totally out of sync with this look. These trousers make such a strong statement, both in their design and the powerful detail, that they will overpower the lightness of a gorgeous white shirt which, as part of a different outfit, would look lovely.
Hairstyle: This look goes well with just about any hairstyle except for the loose disheveled look. The trousers already have so much information that you don’t want the hair to try to be the star: that is, unless you go for the high die-cut necked sweater.
Make up: When black and white make up the total look, it goes without saying that the mouth – and equally the cheeks – become the focus of the face. So if you like red lips, paint them up, but a gorgeous bubblegum pink will do the job just as well. Avoid browns here. And as for the palette, opt for pinks, reds and peaches.
It has to be the high die-cut necked knit sweater, or in fact any black sweater you love. There again, why not a fuchsia or bubblegum pink sweater? Make sure that whichever you choose, it’s as smooth a knit as you can find.
Make up: A slick of transparent gloss on your lips, a satin palette in pale pink – or peach if you have a darker complexion – and define lashes with just a touch of mascara.
Why did I design it this way?
To create a garment which is both informal and yet versatile at the same time, was one of the challenges I wanted to achieve, enabling you to enjoy it an infinite number of times in just about whatever time and place in the world you find yourself.
