Well, Monomania; what can I say? Of course I’m drawn to the limited colour palette (I love wearing black, and I’ve developed a thing for white shoes), but Monomania succeed in making their black & white combinations seem fresh. Their clothing does bring to mind the best of the 1980s – Strawberry Switchblade, anyone? – but with that Tokyo street fashion twist that you just have to love!
Many of their items seem to be styled for both males & females – I really like seeing an oversized t-shirt paired with jeans turn up again tucked in to a frilly skirt in the next shot! Monomania prove that there can be freedom of style using a simple two-colour palette; I know I’ve been inspired – perhaps I’ll pop on a pair of polka-dot socks next time I’m dashing to the supermarket!
