PICTURE: #3 IN THIRTEEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
ROBERT VERDI TALKS ABOUT HIS 3RD OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Blazer – Valentino
Turtleneck – Ann Demeulemeester
Pocket square – Brooks Brothers
Trousers – Gucci
Watch – Chanel
Shoes – Louis Vuitton
Ring – H. Stern custom
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I like a twist on black-tie dressy, so I was looking for an unpredictable idea of how men can dress for “after 5.”
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
It was in my head – I knew I wanted to wear this bright turtleneck under this jacket for a long time.
In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
For me, this outfit is really about color. There’s this wonderful intense peony color that is electric. It has a dramatic appeal alone, but is just completely spectacular with this jacket.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit 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 butterflies because they’re transformative creatures and I feel like they’re good luck, which is why I bought the jacket.
