I spent time this week exploring Koreatown in Los Angeles, California. This particular shoot was done at luxury boutique-hotel, The Line on Wilshire Boulevard. The Line Hotel is a sister hotel to the Saguaro Palm Springs and Ace New York. I fell in love with the minimalist architecture and design, which has mid-century elements mixed with more contemporary urban street art elements. It's a match made in heaven! The Line hotel even comes complete with street art touches done by Shepard Fairey, better known for his OBEY campaign, and D*Face, a English multimedia street artist.
The super luxe hotel room I stayed in was the perfect backdrop to shoot this luxe-sexy-casual look I was rockin' to attend the King Of The Fall tour featuring The Weeknd with supporting acts Jhene Aiko and Schoolboy Q.
The weather has finally started to cool down here in Southern California, but I am still opting to wear light breathable outfits. For this outfit I wanted to have an overall 'rockstar' look. However, I did not want that component of the look to be too overbearing. This outfit is reminiscent of something I would wear out in Las Vegas because it has some extra pizazz to make heads turn and necks do a one-eighty, hah!
Leather shorts have been trending lately in womenswear and have finally made there way steadily into menswear. When I spotted these ZARA boxing shorts, I had to have them! It's very rare to find leather shorts for men, trust me. I completed this look with a sheer tank bodysuit. Yes, bodysuit! Gasp! Even though it would seem that a bodysuit is super outlandish and unconventional, it is actually very wearable and made to look and resemble a fitted tank when worn properly under shorts or with your favorite pair of denim. To finish the look I wore a fitted Givenchy tuxedo jacket and a red-black plaid button down shirt. And peep the shoe game from Jessica Buurman! Hope you enjoy!
