Fashion should never be ordinary, so to enjoy something of the extraordinary every day, what better inspiration than the vibrant and artistic city of Berlin? We asked Berlin-based creative director Cathy Boom, Christian Stemmler, stylist and fashion-editor-at-large at L’Officiel Hommes Germany, and photographer Sabrina Theissen, who has worked with Vogue and Hugo Boss, to create a series of head-turning, simple-to-put-together everyday looks. Transform your day the stylish way.
Monochrome dressing gets a makeover when highlighted with crystal. A simple gray wool turtleneck by Tim Labenda is elevated with the addition of subtly sparkling Malaikaraiss necklace. Atelier Na’s taupe jacket with a scarf by William Sharpprovide a perfect backdrop for On Aura Tout Vu’s look-at-me drop earrings and a crystal-studded top by Dawid Tomaszewski. A black top and trousers by Michael Sontag and Vladimir Karaleev wrapped with a black Stine Goya coat might be a little too understated if it weren’t for a striking statement necklace by Rebecca and a cocktail ring from OSYLIA seen at Wolf & Badger. The same rule applies to a 1-2-3 jumpsuit and Gina ankle boot combo worn with stockings by & Other Stories. A Jean Paul Gaultier lounge suit and vintage roll-neck reaches new heights of sophistication when pinstriped with crystal. Likewise, black-on-black vintage Jil Sander trousers with a Tim Labenda roll-neck is glammed-up with an Adelina Rusu vest that floats thousands of crystals.
