My MANy Bags Lookbook #08

Sci-Fi Dandy

I like things in a dichotomy:-) As the saying goes, opposites attract. Opposing ends of things can sometimes create the most interesting of thoughts and ideas. So many different looks are created each season by the varied talents of designers, each coming up with different concept direction, some opting for a contemporary approach while some relied on references to the past. Hence, for this edition of My MANy Bags Lookbook, I played on the idea of things old/classic and modern/new coming together.

I envision a Victorian dandy made relevant in modern day context. A classic looking 'Victorian' shirt with a ribbon tie by Burberry Prorsum, matched with Neil Barrett's very cool grey wool vest with built-in suspenders and Ann Demeulemeester's cumberband belt...elements that are reminiscent of gentlemen's dressing from the good old days. So where does the modern references come in? Well, in the form of metallic skinny jeans by Dior Homme and sci-fi looking footwear befitting of a moonwalk by Common Projects.

Time for some Dandy Moonwalk...:-P
