special guest/ROBERT VERDI: talks about his 7th outfit. #7 in thirteen acts






What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Shirt – Viktor & Rolf
Blazer – Louis Vuitton
Trousers – Fendi
Shoes – Cesare Paciotti
Ring – Luis Morais
Watch – Piaget
Sunglasses – Bottega Veneta


How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
This outfit has all the elements that I love – sparkle, pattern, color, its formal.


Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I just pulled the jacket from my closet and everything else fell into place.

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?
The jacket is sculpted on me so it really is a very flattering fit.

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
Don’t like to wear the same thing twice.

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 love this jacket and will never get rid of it because it was off the Louis Vuitton runway and it was never sold in stores, so I am the only person who has it. I think ultimately fashion is about being able to completely express yourself without having whatever everyone else has.

    Mr. Verdi looks like an exotic urban peacock posed with the twiggy ferns as part of the backdrop. What a fantastic blazer with punches of fuchsia circles! Definitely hang on to this one-of-a-kind piece of history!
