Black and Blue

I am not the biggest fan of color on men.  But I do think that touches of blue, from royal to navy to all that’s in between, like a palate-cleanser, serve to break the monotony of all black in the most handsome, restrained, and slightly subversive manner.  Whoever cautioned never to wear black shoes with a blue suit was terribly misguided.

Baartmans and Siegel black wool blouson with blue silk sleeves. I thought the collarless round neckline and the slightly longer length made for a very interesting silhouette.

Three of my favorite English designers, Baartmans and Siegel, Sibling, and Lou Dalton showed their own take on this color-non-color combination at the recent London Showrooms in New York City.

This most amazing pair of voluminous blue pleated trousers from Baartmans and Siegel would be doubly astounding with a black fitted turtleneck or a slouchy cashmere t-shirt.

Sibling's sequined cardigan would bring some dark kitsch to an outfit of lazy, loose all-black, like a louche glamour-grandpa.

    I agree, love a black and blue combo! Also tried on some Baartmans last month and love it, everything fit so well and the fabrics were very nice for an “up and coming” brand.

    I haven’t really seen such intricate headpieces for men like the one on top.
