Colouring outside the lines

Remember all those things you used to hear about how to wear stripes? It seems there were a million rules and often they would oppose one another. Well, we suggest you take all those silly, stifling rules and toss them straight out the window. As you may have noticed, contrasting patterns and colors have become a thing of the moment and stripes are no different.

Photographer Andrew Yee and stylist Damian Foxe challenge the linear thinking of the past for in How To Spend It Magazine’s Broad Band Connection editorial spread.

Featuring the chameleon model Debora Muller, the story is a surreal pop-blast of stripes worn in every which way possible. From multi-toned to monochromatic multi-layers, the looks are gaspingly animated, but never Dr. Seuss. Although each look is most certainly a bold statement, pieces are surprisingly wearable. Standouts in this regard are a floor length, sculpturally abundant trapeze dress and navy and white striped sweater paired with black and white striped leggings. Stripes have been around for ages and show no sign of going anywhere anytime soon so it’s about time we started coloring outside the lines.
