PICTURE: #5 IN THIRTEEN ACTS

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
ROBERT VERDI
TALKS ABOUT HIS 5th  OUTFIT

 

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Turtleneck – MUJI
Jacket – Yigal Azrouel
Trousers – Dolce & Gabbana
Sneakers – Jeremy Scott for Adidas
Sunglasses – Vintage Porsche
Ring – Verdura
Scarf – Nicole Farhi
(These were pieces that I was aware of in my closet and had thought of wearing together, but never attempted to until this photo shoot).

 

 

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I took pieces that have similar personalities. I chose all easy pieces that are a little more formal than sportswear and are inspired by athletic wear and put them together.

 

 

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?
By my standards this outfit is rather quiet.  The jacket pocket is very sparse but that is intentional. It is really about the graphic contrast of the trousers and the jacket.

 

 

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 like this outfit because its very comfortable but it doesn’t appear to be.
