PICTURE: #3 IN SIX ACTS

SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
SOMERS FARKAS
TALKS ABOUT HER 3rd  OUTFIT 

 

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
The NFL new women’s line is designed specifically for women, so there is a better selection of chic, on-trend items, allowing me to show my “fandome” throughout the week – and not just at the games!  The top is modeled after the Pro Cut jersey silhouette, Mark Sanchez #6,  and the JETS cap, an added, though not necessary, accessory! The leggings are by HUE, and the boots, unmistakably, by Mr. Blahnik.  And, I threw on a sheared white J MENDEL piece to protect from the elements, and enhance the white of the Jets wordmarks, logos, and sleeve details.

 

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
It was important to wear an outfit that allowed me to combine my desire to celebrate football in style, and to show off my JETS TEAM pride!  I also had to consider the more practical aspects of dressing …boots and leggings for comfort.

 

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time? 
Though not quite spontaneous, the outfit was planned within hours of leaving for the Meadowlands.

 

In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
7 – I would have preferred leggings in more of a “JETS” green hue.

 

What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit? 
Contrary to other outfits, the fit and integrity of the fabric were not as important to this outfit. The most important elements were the jersey, around which the remaining pieces were decided.

 

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I will again team the jersey with the brown boots, though substitute the leggings for dungarees. With the denim, I may choose a brown vest rather than white coat

 

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 have the utmost respect and fondness for each of the JETS players, owners and supporters —I have nothing but FOND memories in this outfit. This outfit was chosen simply to show support for others, and as with all unselfish acts, it is the giver who is rewarded.
