Outside Caroline Charles…LFW SS12

by Lee Oliveira on September 19, 2011

Black usually isn’t a colour that I like to photograph on the streets however, I do wear black (sometimes). When I see someone like Laura, I couldn’t resist to get a shot of her.


So, how do you wear the black? To empower yourself or to hide a little your persona?

She looks stunning!

I wear black as a backdrop to another piece that’s either bright and colorful, or with an interesting pattern that can stand on its own. For this picture, I like how the collar on the woman’s top looks sort of old fashioned school marm’ish and as your eye travels down, the boots are a little bit unexpected and toughen up the look. Nice photo!

Lauren September 20, 2011

I can see why you couldn’t resist. She looks great and the hat gives it a nice, almost playful air. For me, I wear black when I want to feel sleek and powerful, of course! 😉

i wear black to put on a smart, strong look. i think it’s a very nice color. it can be boring sometimes but you should hunt people who wear black unpredictably like this girl. :)

She looks wonderful! After all the colour blocking this summer, black feels kind of fresh again 😉

Love her outfit especially the collar peeking out. I wear black mostly when I am going for a LBD kind of look.

I love wearing black Lee (particularly for my day job as a banker 😉 ) But when I go out I love making it pop with bright coloured shoes or handbag. Great shot, cant wait to see more!

I wear a lot of black – it’s like a blank canvas to me. You can add so much to it, or you can keep it totally simple. I’m loving this black and white combo :)

she is absolutely fab!! that hat is gorge. xo

Rocquelle September 20, 2011

Black isn’t really a color I’m drawn to, but every now and then I like to wear all black with a statement shoe or something because it challenges me. Creating a stylish/interesting all black look takes a bit of skill if you ask me.

akiko September 20, 2011

Such a classic style! Love her midi skirt and great photo as always :) -akiko

BeLighter September 20, 2011

I used to wear black a lot! and I mean a lot, specially for “night outing”, but now I think it’s too harsh on my face and ageing, so I simply don’t have it in my wardrobe (maybe one or to pieces for winter time). Black can also be an aesthetic statement, and mood statement.
Definitely not my fave…

Very difficult not to shoot black in London. We love it. So good to meet you. Xxxx

The Foolish Aesthete September 21, 2011

This is how I love black — in mixed textures and with a hint of white, or another color. Terrific shot! You are everywhere, Lee. Are you going to Milan and Paris too? xx

T. September 23, 2011

I can’t hide in black. I feel that an all-black outfit requires more confidence than color-blocking for instance. Because black makes YOU stand out, not the clothes.
