Style Quickie – Brian Molko (Placebo)

I watched the videoclip for the song Twenty Years by Placebo and was immediately taken with what Brian Molko’s wearing. Take one black necktie, one black shirt, eyeliner and you look awesome.

Note that the tie and shirt are roughly the same texture and lack any designs. The similarity of black on black draws attention to the structure of the whole outfit rather than individual items. Because it’s all one colour your brain doesn’t see the tie as a separate entity; rather, you see the tie for the additional shape and form it adds to the front of the shirt.

I only have a black tie to experiment with, but in the future I’d like to try to the same monochromatic principle with different colours and different accessories.
