Oh dear…all those nay saying so called stylish fashion snobs…put a smile on my face….who says bad taste is bad taste and good taste is good taste…all those wonderful fashion critics that flock to The Sartorialist…a little lesson from Mercedes da Acosta who she once said it so very well…” You should wear clothes for giggles,never take them seriously,because if you do,you will capitulate to convention “..
I totally agree – this is certainly not ‘style’ in the recognised sense at all and there is definitely nothing sartorial about this mish mash of clothing – but it does make you smile to see this crazy man in his PJ bottoms. Could anyone not want to capture this explosion of colour and pattern?
Again this mysterious and flamboyant character. I am really wondering who he is.
His style is not my cup of tea but he pulls off this outfit with such a positive attitude that I don’t mind. It feels like it’s just him, he is not forcing himself or something. Plus it’s the second time he puts a smile on my face, so I just love him.
Hooray-the man with the leopard skin coat returns. And it appears he has a collection of wild socks! Perhaps if you asked nicely, he would display his entire closet! His outfits are enhanced by that wonderful smile.
@ Emmanuelle: the guy is called Emiliano, he’s the other half of a couple of quite successful architects under the name od Dimorestudio, in Milan. They have a rather sophisticated taste in interior design, not percolating, alas, to his own style choices. Consistency can be a narrow pigeonhole sometimes.
My take: This confident man appears to be happy living his creative life! He doesn’t need approval or want attention. He just enjoys mixing things up and being his own non-trendy, comfortable self. What a treat to see him on the street; a work of art walking.
I like his smile, and happiness, that’s it. But the above comments are a riot!!! I love the one just above, reminds her of when grandpa walked out of the house in his shorts, OMG, funny! In NYC, we love friends like this but tell them to their face, you’re a hot mess! http://www.pippihepburn.etsy.com
