MY OBSESSION WITH BLACK was recently revived with the latest edition of VOGUE Paris, an issue dedicated to all things dark and mysterious. Wicked, rich, seductive and strong, black dominated the catwalks and now looks set to cast a spell over the rest of the world. This season it has returned with unexpected twists, casual pieces receive modern lux spins and oil slick leather just feels so right! Join us as we explore the unknown - welcome to the dark side.

B E ST D RE SSED:

JUSTIN O’SHEA No one personifies the feeling of this issue better than the buying director for Mytheresa.com, Justin O’Shea. Spotted repeatedly on the streets of Milan and Paris during fashion weeks, O’Shea is one of many mysterious characters that have developed a fashion following from their street style alone. Irreverent twists on classic dressing set him apart from the rest. Taking a formal suit, he adds his own brand of effortlessness, bringing the formality of suiting up-to-date. The skinny pipe fit jean is his trademark silhouette, along with signature black wayfarers. He is the gentleman with a dark side, the perfect mix of elegance and cool.
