special guest/ GREGORY DELLICARPINI Jr.: talks about his 10th outfit. #10 in ten acts









What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
This look is all about the accessories. I would like to think I can sparkle enough just wearing a suit but I am not George Clooney unfortunately. I parried a vintage swavarski snake pin with this blue suit from Reiss and a pair of John Galliano espadrilles.



How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I find it’s super sexy to wear a suit with nothing underneath. I believe it makes this masculine piece of clothing more androgynous.



Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
Although there are only three pieces in this look, the outfit was definitely planned.




On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
8, I really do like the way the gold tones of the door accentuates the blue of the suit.




What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
This look is about details: the subtle blue tones captured by the light, the sparkle from the pin, and the question— “are those ballet shoes?” that pops into the mind of many.



How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Not too often, unless the occasion called for it.



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?
This outfit makes me feel more formal in everyday life. Like I should be sitting on a terrace that over looks a rose garden sipping tea out of a porcelain rose colored teacup.
