Shift your focus to the minimal and monochrome where tonal black and white simplicities are more than meets the eye this spring summer. With the right pieces within your wardrobe, monochrome is a style that travels season-to-season and day-to-night with a refined sophistication and ease. Journey our monochrome edit below as black and white layerings experiment with texture, form and an effortless polish.
Dressing in monochrome is to wear separates of one colour that have different textures and/or similar shades of that colour for an overall ‘mono’ (one) tonal look, as seen above in black and white pairings. The wrap style Dansa Top (left) and wide leg Llanillos Pants create an elevated simplicity with tonal black accessories of the crossbody Pina Bag and slip on Cueva Mules. To shift focus, try wearing separates with a slightly darker shade that travel to lighter, brighter variations of a similar colour family. For example the Isora Pants in Cream (right) draw the eyes downward with the darker shade on top, reverse this colour travelling tip to draw focus upwards and toward the face.
FORM AND FUNCTION
Keeping colours minimal allows for silhouettes to experiment with bold shape and finish. The La Laja Dress, in natural cotton twill, is a striking statement with exaggerated puff sleeves that juxtapose the thoughtfully tailored and fitted midi style. For a contemporary pairing partner with the Calle Heel, featuring a unique wave cut out design, and travel from office to evening with elegance and ease.
Add versatility to your monochrome wardrobe as classic blacks, whites and textural finishes culminate across sandals, handbags, hats and belts. The Ha Sandal (above) and Don Justo sandal style shoe (below) partners bottoms, skirts and dresses with a polished elegance. For a lighter finish, the Lagarto Hat (below) in 100% cotton, is a classic cap style with embroidered lizard design paying homage to our ‘El Hierro’ destination muse. Bring light and shade to your tonal pairings with accessories that adapt across a variety of styles, plus for further reading view our journal post on cross body structured handbags where glossy and matte styles welcome an elevated monochrome moment.
Freshen up your wardrobe with monochrome prints that add statement and intrigue to tonal layerings. The Navarre Top (above & below) features an in-house designed print where abstract lines are inspired by latitude, longitude and topographic movements. This unique styles features mens shirting cuffs with cufflinks and back neck tie feature made in an ultra-soft viscose blend. Compliment monochrome prints with black or white separates to pull together a refined look with the cropped wide leg style El Golfo Pants and Cueva Mule pictured above.
Monochromatic colour blocking is a playful exploration that can be discovered across the midi length Somport Dress. Contrasting black and white colours create an innovative panelled design across a stretchy, satin backed fabrication with a fitted upper body that flares out towards the hem for a flowy finish. Pair with the textural faux croc Fuego Bag for hands free travel and take your colour-block look seamlessly from weekday to weekend.
Create a monochromatic balance with our in-house designed large scale polka dot print that journeys spring to summer with thoughtful layering. Made-to-match separates of the puff sleeve Isla Top and high waist Taibique Skirt transform into a complete dress-like silhouette by layering the Faro Singlet over top (picture left and right) for an elegantly monochrome finish, or pair solely with the cigarette San Andres Pant (right) all crafted in a breathable and cooling crisp cotton twill.
