    Wow. Is this the dude that kidnapped Luke Skywalker? Just kidding. That is one awesome piece of outer-wear and good on him for making bold statement!

    I’m glad there’s people out there in the world who dress like this – makes my day that much more cheerful. I love it – not because it is fashionable at all, but because it is outrageous and entertaining.

    He takes a very bold look. Whether you need to look carefully for his glasses and boots. Good picture!…

    Love the contrast between the environment and the clean and white outfit…. it seems that someone transfered directly the person from some other situation far away in a couple of second to this environment that is completely different…In a certain way it tells a story…of beeing and not beeing integrated in the environment.

    Really interesting.

    I appreciate the audacity, but I do not enjoy the overall concept.
    Though, I imagine he is quite cozier in his polar bear fur than myself bearing the American Apparel opaque tight collection.
    With that, I say, “Four for you Glenn Coco. You go Glen Coco.”

    I saw this man leaving the Jeremy Scott show and didn’t take his picture because his ensemble is a bit outrageous…BUT you somehow manage to make it look AMAZING! I love this picture!

    Love the contrast between the background and the look!

    this guy looks so dumb, i appreciate audacity in fashion but when all sense of function and reason is lost, it looks like the only thing the wearer thinks about is what their wearing. which is likely true here. if you saw an old man in cleveland wearing this, you wouldn’t say “i appreciate how he is defying social norms and being audacious.” you’d think he was looney.

  63. Jessie

    Is he wearing Chanel? Joe Zee worn the “Chanel polar bear outfit” 2 years ago… LOL

    February 17, 2012 at 7:21 am

    funny picture!love this picture because is black and white.i think there are many people who weare strange things during fashion week just to be photographed and i think he is one of these.

  65. Heather

    February 17, 2012 at 8:15 am

    I love your photos. I live in a small town in New Brunswick Canada and never get to see people like this IRL. Certainly an attention grabber and very silly looking at it from here.

  66. Mica

    February 17, 2012 at 8:27 am

    I am not a fan of his outfit – but I’m a massive fan of the photo! Love the outfit against the backdrop and the black and white!

    It never occurred to me that that coat could be real fur–it’s so OTT. If it is real, I take back my comment about the look’s being chic!!

    There’s a modesty in his demeanor that really juxtaposes his fashion sense. Really makes makes this photo and the individual exceptional

  87. Zana

    February 19, 2012 at 5:42 am

    These comments are all killing me! I guess this shows what a bubble of culture the New York fashion community really is. I forget that (obviously) most people would not know who Terence Koh is, and even further would not realize that this is more or less his daily uniform; a look that has melded with his persona, somewhere in between personal style and performance.

  88. esmeralda

    I want to hug him and kuddle with him, his furry coat looks so comfortable and soft!

    I saw Terence Koh dressed in this outfit as he was walking around Chelsea outside of the David Zwirner gallery on Friday. He’s just one of those people that turns heads wherever he goes.

    Terrance Koh is a true Artist and he expresses his vision in ever facet of his life. I don’t think the idea ever even crossed his mind that this might be considered silly. He’s truly just being himself. And although this is one of his more over the top get ups, I’ve never seen him in anything that wasn’t completely unique and his own.

    a joke. what happens when clothes are taken to an extreme, beyond even the vagaries of “fashion” and trendiness- too much “look at me, look at me”. imagine him wearing uniqlo clothes- he would be unrecognizable to more than 99 percent of the population at large.

  98. heather

    he was also wearing this to the bjork show on saturday night. i guess it’s the outfit of the week.

    Eeek! Not all three pieces together – pick ONE please!
    Coat – big and scary
    Pants – big and scary
    Boots – big and… well, you know the drill.

    Any one of the items with something else “normal” might have been interesting. This– just screams “I need attention; someone please love me.”

    Olé, olé and olé for this guy who decides he looks great in this outfit and just wears it! I wish I had the courage to do the same and I am very, very happy that there is people around dressing like this! so fun and entertaining.

    Love your blog, when are you coming to Barcelona? We have some pretty specimens here too.
