special guest/ GREGORY DELLICARPINI Jr.: talks about his 3rd outfit. #3 in ten acts









What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
A black Prada T-shirt with yellow monkey and banana embroidery on the back; black Marc Jacob pants and Alexander McQueen boots.


How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
Again, I am a huge fan of all back looks. Here I think it was fun to add a splash of color on the back. The T-shirt is such a work of art it deserves to have full attention. I also just love bananas!


Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I planned this one and based everything around the T-shirt.


On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
9, all black gets me every time.


What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
This look is all about color and the conscious decision not to use it in certain places and emphasize it in others.


How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I would definitely repeat this look. Although this is a hard T-shirt to repeat since it is such a statement T.


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 look says plenty—from the front: I am a casual dresser, all black; from the back: I have a passion for monkey’s’ and bananas.
