TWOMUCHSTYLE COLLABORATES WITH THE TRIB MAGAZINE TO STYLE RADICAL TRANSPARENCY. It all began a month ago with an image of look 47 from the MIU MIU fall collection. The look in question is the transparent trench with ribbon piping. The story came to life because of the current political climate being the Trump administration.Transparency was in abundance but the perfect looks was a bit difficult to secure. We were fortunate enough to acquire Calvin Klein which is , of course, the most highly anticipated and sought after collection. Next was Dior which perfectly balance being sheer but very of the moment. Paco Robanne was different, it wasn’t sheer but had open holes in the metal mesh fabric which places it perfectly in the story. Gucci look number 85 was a bit challenging as we wanted the story to be perfectly balanced. We decided to mix in the Maison Margiela dress over the Gucci which made the story perfectly balanced. As much as we try to use the looks that were sent, it doesn’t always work out perfectly. We hope you enjoy this story as much as I did styling it. This portfolio photographed by KEVIN SINCLAIRE.
