PICTURE: #5 IN SIX ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
GEOFFREY BRADFIELD TALKS ABOUT HIS 6th OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
White slacks Incotex Venezia
White cotton polo neck Ralph Lauren
Kimono Imperial Hotel, Tokyo
Sports watch Bulgari
Embroidered velvet slippers Shipton & Heneage
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I work extensively in Asia. I always stay at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, and cannot resist picking up their kimonos, which service the suites. They are rather pricey, but the cotton is so fine and a pleasure to wear. Unfortunately, they do not survive more than one wash or two.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I never dress randomly. It is always planned.
In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
What roles do color, the fit and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
Breakfast on my terrace, during the summer.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Daily,during the summer.
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I simply dress for pleasure.
