These photographs taken in Stockholm are awe-inspiring. This young man is awe-inspiring!
Katherine Zoepf (The New York Times) on Stockholm Style: COOL. Stockholm is cool. During a long weekend that my boyfriend, Dan, and I spent there, I found myself chirping like a 13-year-old over whimsical hotel light fixtures and exquisite potato mashers, river buoys shaped like human hands, folding accordion-pleated ice cream dishes, and a functioning cocktail bar sculptured entirely from ice. So cool.
I like the collar, coat, bag, and jeans combo – but the hair and his shoes, I’m not sure. His shoes remind me too much of Goofy to take them seriously (esp with the high pants roll). But I really like the darker plaid coat, and that it has a hood!
Recntly I have seen so many kids in Stockholm wearing Doc Martens. It is a nice ode to the days of the original working class(and non-racist) skin heads (who wore braces, Levis, and Ben Sherman collarded shirts).
I must respect his obvious love of the classics–Doc Martens, punkish black jeans, collared shirt, duffel coat, New Wave haircut. He knows the value of reliable, time-tested styles. These things look fresh and interesting on him. Classics need not be dull.
While hair like that looks great in photos, I find it very annoying in real life. People with that sort of hair (myself included since I’m in between cuts) tend to push it around a lot. It’s a visual noise that bothers me as much as long-haired curls constantly twirling a lock in their fingers.
THE HAIR OF GOLD FOR THE AGE OF GOLD: IÂ´D LIKE TO BE AS HIM: PERFECT, “PAST YEAR CUT” INCLUDED FOR THIS AND THE NEXT YEAR TOO. HIS FINGERS IN HIS HAIR A NICE GAME OF SEDUCTION WHEN HIS FACE SUDDENLY APPEARS AFTER THESE. HE’S SOPHISTICATED AND NATURAL A WICKED ANGEL, AN INNOCENT DEVIL. THE COAT, THE CUT, THE SHOES… ALL. I’D LIKE TO HAVE HIM BETWEEN MY STUDENTS. ONE OF THE ” SARTORIALIST AWARDS… OF GOLD”.
TO REMEMBER: THE VISCONTI’S TADZIO WAS FROM SWEDEN
Not a look I would feel comfortable wearing but I think this guy can pull it off. (wear whatever you want, as long as you can pull it off! lol)
The hair looks great on him, today, but would get tiring pretty quickly. Still, though, sexy.
Cold weather dressing is a challenge. Protecting oneself from the elements without being completely lost in a bunch of fabric. He manages to be practical while revealing enough of himself to be both stylish and alluring. Sexy.
The pants suggest a great pair of legs. Great calves are hot. The white shirt adds weight to the top and helps him to emerge from the coat rather than being swallowed by it.
