special guest/ GREGORY DELLICARPINI Jr.: talks about his 6th outfit. #6 in ten acts









What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Rodarte and Opening Ceremony pink and yellow floral shirt Black Paul Smith combat pants
Grey Givenchy boots.


How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I love blending soft with hard. The delicate fabric and print of the shirt sharply contrasts the dark pants with aggressive zipper detailing.


Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
Another look that was definitely planned. Perhaps I think too much, I am realizing.


On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
8, I enjoy the way the pink in the art in front of me delicately draws attention to the pinks in my shirt. I also just laugh out loud every time I see that KFC image of a chicken eating out of the carton. Sorry PETA.


What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
To get that contrast of soft and hard fabric and color play a major role in this look. The pale pinks of the shirt, the zipper on the pants and the soft leather of the boots all communicate with each other.


How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I would wear this look all the time. I love 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?
I just simply feel happy in this look.
