special guest/ GEOFFREY BRADFIELD: interior designer. #1 in six acts

 

PICTURE: #1 IN SIX ACTS

Geoffrey Bradfiled is a particular type of designer and temperament best exemplified in his work. As one of the most sought after interior designers—here and abroad—he distinguishes himself by his trademark restrain palette, comprising of nuanced shades of whites and some grays. His work is partial to excellent contemporary art, finest examples of the Art Deco movement. “A modernist” in his own word, he is often referred to as “The Billionaires’ Designer” —with illustrious names such as Oliver Stone, Dan Synder, to name a few.

Geoffrey is consistently quite the smart dresser in the sartorial department. Over the next 6 days, witness the formal but witty shifts in his attires—a shorthand for his modernist sensibility and ostentatious restraint.

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
GEOFFREY BRADFIELD TALKS ABOUT HIS 1st OUTFIT

How did you find the various items that you are wearing?
The simplicity of these solid colors appeals to me, like much of my interior décor, I prefer solid colors with pattern used as an accent.  This suit is classic tailoring and perfect for the office during the day.

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
N/A

Where do you normally shop for clothes and accessories?

How much role does money or the lack thereof play in one’s endeavor to dress very smart or beautifully?
It takes serious money to acquire quality. Having said that, I have no issue with mixing mail-order clothing with a high-end product.

N/A

As a result of your style, what is your impression of how you are generally perceived in public?
My taste in general is rather conservative.  I probably have a distinctive look, but I am not that aware of it.  I am fastidious in my dress.

And how would rather the public perceive you?
That I am an evolved individual,  at one with my own identity.

Presently, what do you think accounts for the poor appearances in how people generally dress or don’t dress?
I guess, a general lack of interest in appearance.

    Geoffrey Bradfield is clearly coming from above the stratosphere, the mesosphere, he is one hundred percent a being of good taste.
    I must admit I too get lost in the beauty of a solid color… his lilac cashmere jersey is clearly sending out good vibrations, which is something our environment can use more of and who would know better about a beautiful surroundings than Geoffrey; seeing Geoffrey in his attire is wonderful!! A relief for the soul !!
    He is handsomely dressed, to match his wonderful intuitive creative nature, the best of the best!!
