Matching and mismatching pattern and print makes for a joyful combination. (There’s a chapter on mastering contrast and colour in Know Your Style). I may be low-key rather than loud when it comes to wearing print, but I do admire a clash-up on other people. And in art galleries. There’s a lovely, free exhibition of culture-blending photographer Hassan Hajjaj’s work at Somerset House. Now 56, Hajjaj came to London in the 1970s and worked as a fashion stylist and retailer before moving into photography. The British-Moroccan artist mixes African tradition and western street-style. Think Moroccan girls on mopeds, Malick Sidbe meets the Sapeurs of the Congo.
And mix it up.
