PICTURE: #8 IN THIRTEEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
ROBERT VERDI TALKS ABOUT HIS 8th OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Herringbone jacket – Dolce & Gabbana
Turtleneck – Dior
Trouser – Moschino
Shoes – Yves Saint Laurent
Scarf – will.i.am
Sunglasses – Margiela
Watch – Corum (bubble skeleton)
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I like that all of the pieces were designed to appear as if they were all worn in through time and were tattered. And while they are all from different designers and different collections from different years, they all appear to be designed from the same fundamental viewpoint that all things don’t last forever and some of the best things are well worn in.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
It was circumstantial styling. I wanted to wear the turtleneck and the trousers were already out of the closet and when I saw them together I knew it would work. The rest just fell into place, it was trigger system in my head.
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?
Color is benign in this outfit. The apparent wear of the cloth in each garment creates synergy. And the fit of all of the pieces is kind of easy, long, and lazy, so they share they share that in common.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I try to never 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 never get emotionally attached to any outfits, because like my relationships they don’t last long. 😉
