Charcoal draping


As I sit down, cup of coffee in my hand, skipping from one picture to another of this black and white outfit, I wonder what it is about this top that seems so proper, and so right. Maybe it’s the black? Maybe it’s the fabric? I actually think it is the way it gently drapes, softening every edge, and every curve. Later, when looking at the whole of it, I realize how the colour perfectly holds the outfit together. How the solid, sturdy charcoal dissolutes into the ikat print shorts, and then again into the leopard print heels, where it almost disappears, but not quite so.

Mientras saltaba de una foto a otra de este conjunto monocromático, me preguntaba, ¿el qué es exactamente lo que hace que este top se vea tan correcto, tan bien? ¿Tal vez sea su color? ¿O tal vez sea su material? En realidad, creo que se trata de la forma gentil en que cae, suavizando cada curva y cada ángulo. Por otro lado, me gusta cómo el color carbón se disuelve en el estampado tribal de los shorts y luego en las estampa animal de los tacones, unificándolo todo.
