Well I have been a huge fan of X-Men and Marvel comics as far as i could remember. Even majority of my top Marvel characters come from the X-men. So it was just natural for me to be inspired by one of their many characters. Though, I didn't want any literal reference to the White Queen in terms of clothing, the only thing that will tie my look with that of the her would be the use of white and the idea of royalty inspired garments. Playing on the notion that kings or queens adorn themselves with ruffled collars as part of their wardrobe, i decided to incorporate it in my look. After all, I love a bit of historicity in my looks added but with a bit of modernism (by making the ruffled attached to the lace bib:) This collar with lace bib is a design I made years ago and when I was going through stuff (for storage/disposal) I saw it again and it beckoned. I think it wanted to be worn:) Speaking of lost and found items, the lightning knit scarf is an old piece. In fact a trivia for you peeps. I actually wore it in my very first look for lookbook. The reason I brought it out again was because of a conversation I had with three people from lookbook. They just inspired me. This is for Robert, Julian, and Max:)!!! You are just so amazing guys!!!

this is one of your more tame looks, but I love it lots!
I like the slightly victorian ruffle collar and pendant. And the plain black and white is awesome. I love victorian touches to modern outfits!
You are always awesome, Andre.
My heart for today (though really you deserve one for every look!!)
