I’m sorry Sart, I wish I could agree, but he looks like he jumped out of the poster from Prada’s Fall/Winter 2005/6 collection, all those muted tones and the whole sombre feel. I think one needs to take everything in moderation, especially when it comes to fashion.
The success of this has, I think, to do with the cleverness of the “composition”: the diagonal of the strap against the half-oval of the collar and necklace; the horizontal bands on the sleeves, reiterated by the top of the pants…the eye keeps dancing around: very pleasing!
He looks great. Marc Jacobs is so good at the little subdued details that seem to jump out at you. It’s very artful, very cinematic and with a great use of collage / assemblage techniques. Picasso said collage would be the art-form of this century and this designer is a great representation of that view. Every object has a meaning and he understands this and has a gift for placement and attention to colour.
This is very Prada last season or whatever but who cares. He looks cool and distinctive. Love those sleeve garters (?). The little necklace, skinny bag strap, it’s also so delicate, but I think that’s what he’s going for. A little androgny never hurt anyone.
I like it!!!!I like how he accessorizes…this look will be so so if it weren’t for the rosary and those black straps (I don’t even know what it is) on the cardigan and how the design of the bag’s strap look across his chest. All of the accessories that he use are minimalistic and not over the top which really compliments the more quiet things in this outfit. AND I’m not sure if anyone thought about it but…doesn’t he look like a blonde Olivier Theyskens?
You know, I don’t WANT to like it. But I do. While he does look like he might have walked off a photo shoot that was taking itself way too seriously, it looks as if it genuinely suits him. I think that’s why it’s indescribable. It shouldn’t work for me. But it does.
He has some kind of perfect shape or object arrangement about him. Everything is positioned perfectly. He looks like some kind of forest elf, pulled from the dark, moist, mossy depths and transformed into a modern urban elf of light.
