The Power of Unexpected Details
Photographed by Thomas Lohr
The little black dress. The white shirt. The argyle sweater. The summer sheath. Variations on classic pieces such as these abound, and for good reason: they are the flexible fundamentals of a modern wardrobe. With trusted silhouettes as a starting point, seek out styles that cross the bland boundaries of “basic” with unexpected touches ranging from artful cutouts to graphic accents.
Bold stripes show their softer side in Altuzarra’s graphic sheath. Precisely placed panels sculpt an hourglass silhouette and create the illusion of wrapping. Continue the play of contrasts with Tabaco, a unisex eau de cologne from Coqui Coqui that combines the scent of freshly picked tobacco leaves with tart, juicy citrus notes.
