Fashion Director Rake magazine Esther Quek, after Juun J, Paris, June 2012.
Nobody does girl-meets-boy-inspired looks better than Esther. I have been photographing Esther each year in June at men's fashion week (Paris) for maybe 3 years now and it is always such a delight to see what she is wearing. I have never thought to ask her whether she was wearing menswear influenced pieces prior to working at Rake or whether she has been inspired by all the men's collections she works with as fashion director. Either way, Esther's outfit is a perfect (summery) intro to the menswear trend for this coming A/W.
Recreate Esther's look (kind of):
Statement blazer: Sass & Bide The End blazer, Derek Lam print blazer, ASOS premium blazer, Alice + Olivia Elyse floral print blazer or Clover Canyon printed jacket
Loafers: Charlotte Olympia Charlotte's Web loafers, Charlotte Olympia kitty loafers (oh the cuteness!) or Alouissa black studded skull loafers
Raid your dad's/boyfriend's/husband's/brother's wardrobe for a tie and tie-pin.
