Keiko Morigi first found acclaim for her photography and editing skills, a testament of which is her highly popular flick stream.  No surprise really that her artistry translates in to the world of fashion with ease and her store &Bean has been quickly building an inventory of unique outfits and must have separates.  Her creations are also very en pointe where trends are concerned, making it easy to meld fashion with your own personal sense of style.


Both the jacket and pants are from &Bean, and while they’re sold as separates, I couldn’t resist matching them up. I tried a few shirts with this outfit, but found that a simple black bra completed the look and really allowed the detail on the high waisted pants to shine (love those zippers!).

The bra might be a bit much for day-to-day gridlife, but I love it from an editorial viewpoint.  For a toned down alternative, MichaMi’s glam tanks look great with these pants (and just about everything else!).

I could go on, but I think the thing I love most about this outfit, and &Bean’s pieces in general, is that it’s seemed to find a fashion loophole by being retro and modern at the same time. Gotta love those fashion cycles, and Keiko, and &Bean. ❤

P.S. Keiko names most of her products after song titles and her entire store makes for a killer playlist.
