Erm…what exactly is he pulling off? He looks like he’s very self consciously trying to look “zany”. Is that what you meant? Because he’s not pulling off any kind of interesting or pleasing aesthetic as far as I can tell.
It looks effortless (careless, even) and exactly what he felt like wearing today. How is that not an expression of his own self? Might I suggest that the problem is with your level of tolerance for that of which you do not approve?
I believe that it is not a skirt…from the fold in front they are really wide wide leg not so short shorts. I would almost guess he is a clown by profession…not in a derogatory way…but the shoes and the striped top have a sense of that.
His name is Emiliano Salci. Part of a design duo in Milan called Dimore Studio. The new IT designers. Some very interesting and theatrical aesthetics. ES loves to pose and typically only wears women’s Prada. I visited the studio at Salone del Mobile and asked to take his picture for Instagram. He was thrilled but once I posted my image he reposted it immediately without giving me credit. Frequently appropriates images without giving due credit. Not generous.
Oooooh, yes, he does care! He’s purposefully looking for attention. He is creating a “presence”. And here he is, and we are all looking at and talking about him.
(I would enjoy this outfit with anything other than that skirt.)
