“A motherf*** starboy.” This is what Charis is (using The Weeknd’s lyrics)! My girlfriend’s boyfriend and one of the best hair dressers in my country.
If you talk about Charis, you definitely talk about something black, or even better and/or darker, something total black. When he asked me to prepare for him a black shirt, I thought that it would be a good idea to use it for my golden circle. I am not used to design menswear garments, but I accepted the challenge immediately!
My inspiration for this shirt was Vader Darth, one of the protagonists of the Star wars films. Vader Darth is one of the most iconic villains in popular culture, who has been listed among the greatest villains and fictional characters ever. He had fallen into the dark side and served the evil. I used some features of his costume (except from the color) in order to design my garment. I designed a maxi shirt to represent his cape with split sides, and in the front part of the shirt i designed a quilted layer for a decorative effect to represent the lines of his cape under his neckline.
Trying to illuminate Charis dark side, we used red and blue smoke generators for the photo shooting which were really awesome! You should watch our video to understand how perfect it was. (https://www.instagram.com/p/BRlvnJalEHt/?taken-by=elianamatheou)
That’s all for today.
