Denim and sequins are two elements of fashion you don’t see paired together that often. However, Biosilk’s latest collection Sequins and Silk fuses these components together, putting a millennial spin on chic street style. While showcasing high fashion looks meets every day casual, Biosilk artist Ivan Rodriguez also highlights hairstyles ranging from wearable waves and texture to edgier, posh styles for day or night.
“I like the juxtaposition of styles between the sequin dresses and the jean jackets with sneakers. It shows that all looks are transformable and transferable, as is the hair. You can easily wear any of these styles for a casual day out or a glam night on the town. These are styles for the Biosilk women who wants to look fresh and unique with a little sass,” says stylist Ivan Rodriguez.
