special guest/ JOY ADAEZE talks about her 4th OUTFIT: 4 in 10 acts







What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Lafayette 148 trench
Lafayette 148 shirt
Lafayette 148 pants
Bally oxfords
Silk turban from my upcoming line


How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I was going for a menswear feel and this look was a seamless choice. It’s crisp and elegant.


Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
It was spontaneously fabulous!


On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
10, darling!!!


What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The two toned hue of this coat is spectacular. It adds texture and intrigue. The quality of these Lafayette pants is unmatched. They’ll last for the next 15 years, I’m sure. And how can I forget the SHOES. These oxfords are so unique. I love the vintage feel.

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I would wear this outfit as soon as next week!


There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I feel so sharp and sophisticated in this outfit. It makes me smile!
