On The Street: Back to Black

Photographer Samantha Smikle

Wearing black is usually against our religion--or at least against what's usually in our wardrobes. But in these gloomy times of frosty winds and financial downpours, even our contributing style editor Mobolaji Dawodu, famous for his sunny color choices (see the sartorialist for visuals) is putting his glad rags aside for the time being. Harder, faster, stronger, darker is what we're all in the mood for these days, and if toughening up our outfits means lacy leggings, 7-inch spiked heels and even spikier toe-caps (Louboutin by Rodarte, we believe) then we're all about it.
