This reminds me a lot of Taiwan when I was at the Gaultier store (or a store that sold Gaultier) and a guy walked in with very wide-legged pants. It has a zen quality to it that is both provocative and relaxed. http://blog.likebright.com
I really like the radical layering notion along with the pattern play in the first picture.
Reminds me of the silhouette u get when tying your sweatshirt around your waist,
without too much interference from bulky sleeves.
Very distinctive, in a good way; I also think it’s more about shapes, proportions than colors, that’s where his strong point is.., that’s what should single him out in a mixed crowd..I wonder why he needs that notebook…on the streets..
Hooley dooley! Working that look. I don’t know if the spotted item is a bag, or ?? but I love it. The hairy legs peaking out from the long skirt worn with all stars and no socks makes me think of nuns on holidays (but in a good way). Go man, go!
There is a thin line between style and ridicule. I get the alternative perspective and the desperate need to be different but this is a little bit too desperate for me. Yet he caught your attention, so something must be right hear. I just don’t see it.
My dear sartorialist. No doubt your photography makes pictures look great. But this “advanced style” you are talking about is disastrous to say the least. If it is not something you will wear, don’t call it “advanced style”. Call it “different” or “weird”.
Love polka dots, I wish more people would wear it.
As for the bulky blue skirt, the idea I don’t have much a problem with but it looks like a badly proportioned nun’s skirt to be frank. A Japanese yukata bottom, not quite – something else and I can’t say I like it personally.
I like the first look but not the second. I’d be amused if I saw looks like this on the street but I don’t think I could handle such sloppy style around me. The first look is different and appreciated but I don’t think the sloppiness of the second one translates into advanced style. I’d personally call advanced style the shoes on the LV runway this season, but I guess to each their own.
because if you live in NYC and you want to work in fashion you do need to be different/unique, otherwise no one will pay attention. Generally, this is a good thing, this is where all the creativity comes from. Imho thought, this is not the case here. It is simply too much.
Have to admit though, I have never seen a desperate need to conform in fashion bloggers, stylists etc that do have an audience
I know him, I know him!!! IÂ´m from Madrid but during my time in NY I saw him entering in a class at the FIT… the teacher was his boss and he talked about his style.

That’s now a skirt he’s wearing, in fact, what he’s wearing is a modified Hakama (Kendo type pants,) but a shorter version. If he’s a fashion designer, his concept is done very well, although, I’d personally not wear such a thing, but it looks good on him. The first pants however are very cool!
I’m quite impressed by the first outfit. It may just be that I’m a sartorial newbie, but I always feel inspired by someone who can confidently pull off a look I’d still be embarrassed to even put together in my mind. I would’ve never thought about a polka dot shirt before. Now…
