special guest/ GREGORY DELLICARPINI Jr.: talks about his 5th outfit. #5 in ten acts








What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Grey floral shirt from Paul Smith
Black suit from Burberry
Black Swarovski crystal Christian Louboutin sneakers
Black keyhole sunglasses by Ralph Lauren.


How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I truly do always like to dress down. However, there are those moments in life that refuse to allow us to be casual. So this look was born purely out of necessity. Doesn’t everyone need a pair of Swarovski covered sneakers?


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?
7, Although a bit formal for my taste right now, I do truly enjoy the subtle pattern of the Paul Smith shirt and bit of sparkle in the shoes.


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 so much.


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 is a bit confining and makes one question their posture and daily etiquette in life.
