I think I’ve mentioned before in a post that I’m a sucker for black and white. It’s almost like those colours are a magnet and I’m a tiny metallic pin. Because of that, my shoot in today’s post was inspired by a monochrome theme.
Angela will attest to the fact that my wardrobe is literally full of black and white pieces. So much so that everyone who is close to me begs me to buy clothes and accessories in different colours. (That doesn’t necessarily help). If you caught a peep of my laundry basket, imagine it as a black and white sea.
So anyway, when I walked into the Kwesh shop, my eye was drawn to this black and white print maxi skirt. It’s soft and flowy and can be paired with so many different things. Together with a simple cropped top and this necklace, I wore it to show you how easy it is to throw on pieces to make this look great.
I’ve chosen this outfit to ease you into the aesthetic that I gathered when I visited the Kwesh store on Plot 2, Wampewo Close. Think white, black and grey. Think minimal. Juliana, the Creative Director behind the brand is driven by minimalism. She plays around with different fabrics, details and textures and has mastered the art of creating beautifully understated signature work.
Juliana clearly loves what she does and has worked hard to get her brand to the recognition we have of it today. In her latest collection Muted Grandeur which Angela and I raved about when we first saw it, I saw a lot of clean lines, and neutral palettes. I am personally inspired by her work ethic and the passion with which she gets up to do her work every day.
