Designer look for less: Tome Spring 2015

This outfit is my idea of colouring outside the lines and looking beyond the obvious. It was one of my Tome Spring/Summer 2015 favourites, but at first all I could see was the sleeveless trench dress, the belt and the sandals as if my mind only chose to see what it was prepared to notice.

As I began dissecting the look months later, the complexity of it suddenly hit me. It wasn't just about the New York-inspired simplicity and architectural lines, but the whole art of layering colour upon colour upon colour until they worked in synergy - the sand, the rich gold, the gorgeous saffron, maroon and pure white, the moment when India and its tradition took the central stage. 

The original outfit is created with a pair of yellow culottes, but I swapped them for a dress mainly because this shade of yellow is notoriously difficult to come by unless we are talking £500+ mark. Besides, having an extra dress would mean additional possibilities of mixing and matching these few items. 

And yes, I know it's pretty complicated, but so beautiful...

  5. I confess, at first glance I did not even notice the collar was part white! My sense of symmetry naturally corrected what I must have subconsciously perceived as "something is wrong here". Aside from this one flaw, this is a beautiful and very wearable outfit. I adore your interpretation of the original, and it is symmetrical too!
