Dark & Stormy

I have not been a fan of monochromatic outfits.


No really, that's it.

They don't really do much for me aesthetically, and I always feel somewhat uncomfortable wearing the same color all over, even if it is different shades. Even a Canadian tuxedo despite it's recent appeal thanks to Isabel Marant makes me feel slightly style-ill. However when I saw this editorial from Vogue India starring Lakshmi Menon [shot by Kevin Sinclair, my opinion seemed so, well, PETTY:

I know, I know, this isn't exactly a monochromatic set of outfits, there is some variation in color, but what I see when I look at these is the texture. If there's any way to pull off this difficult trend is has GOT to be mixing up the composition of fabrics: Ribbed, sequined, silky, velvet, furry, waxed, feathered....whatever it may be, it then separates the articles of clothing and creates a differentiation in the eye of the beholder. I mean, these are metalli-tastic [shut up, totally a word].

It also doesn't hurt that Lakshmi Menon is drop dead gorgeous!

Anywho, who knows? Maybe I'll break from my polychromatic ways and give it a try......
