When you think of monochrome you probably think of black-and-white, but the literal definition is an image, or in this case a look, that is created from varying tones of one colour. While oki-ni are big fans of colour, summer outfits too often become a visual wrestling match, with the red and blue corners squaring off against each other in a fight for dominance. The following STYLED editorial shoot, oki-ni demonstrates how bright summer colours can work together, in tag-team, to create sophisticated looks that are a real knockout.
STYLED is an editorial series produced by the oki-ni creative team in collaboration with a range of guest talent – from celebrated fashion editors, publications and stylists.
