PICTURE: #13 IN THIRTEEN ACTS

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
ROBERT VERDI
TALKS ABOUT HIS 13th OUTFIT

 

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Shirt – Versace
Vest – D Squared
Blazer – D Squared
Trousers – J. Lindeberg
Boots – Paul Smith
Ring – Diane Von Furstenberg for H. Stern
Broach – Verdura
Sunglasses – Vintage Porsche
Necklace – Luis Morais

 

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I wanted to create something that was routed from 70’s style and had a “pimpy” look.

 

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
This was planned.  For me, this was about finding the right gold pieces that would work together. Its all abut the boots.

 

In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit? 
9.5

What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
For me this outfit is a modern Tin Man. Often times I like to make subtle references to iconic movies or moments in movies, like this nod to the Wizard of Oz.

 

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Never wear it again.

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 love it because they’re all pieces bought in the last ten years and I love that they all work together.
