Monochrome

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
