On The Street...Dior Boy, East Village

Excellent!
Great example of a cool take on "ethnic" dressing. Dior or maybe a young Galliano. Love it!

Girls in Finland dress like this (minus the hat).

 

Blogger Butch said ... (10:39 AM) : 

A nifty balance of the thought-through (clever deploying of black and white) and the "throwaway." The hat clinches--no, makes--the deal....

Why does he remind me of the clowns in the film "Paris, je t'aime"?

 

Blogger bureaudeestilo said ... (10:53 AM) : 

that´s the kind boy i wanna see walking on the street...

 

Blogger kiarella said ... (11:38 AM) : 

Great, he seems just out of the famous 1874 Manet painting 'Argenteuil' and somewhat he remainds me of the man in Renoir's 1879 'Le déjeuner des canotiers' painting. Style across the times... I love it!

Wicked lil' hipster punks! I love their attitudes.. but their skimpiness is overwhelming sometimes.. But hey "
if you've got it flaunt it" might be their motto. It looks great... young and sassy.. I could see him at the misshapes party any given Saturday.

really bratnik. i like it. simplicity

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:18 PM) : 

He has carried this look off perfectly ... so cool, so dior, so me ...

 

Blogger Carlene said ... (4:22 PM) : 

That is one hot and stylin' mime.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:30 PM) : 

the thing's i'd do to look like that...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:30 PM) : 

i think he's lovely; if he were wearing a sandal (even omigod flipflops!) he'd look like something out of a visconti film -- the shirt might be a little too 'intentional' (stringy, sleeveless?) but he brings to mind those people you see anywhere (on a train, in the bustle of union square) who are so beautiful you can't believe someone is not monitoring their every move, you know??

Dior boy as in he's modelled for Dior Homme before or because he's dressed in DH?

WHAT A DREAM BOAT!!!

 

Anonymous cnnlive said ... (5:59 PM) : 

i only like french 60s chic on the ladies...

 

Blogger Adrian said ... (6:18 PM) : 

stripes are tired and overdone. *yawn*

Liking the jeans and shoes though...

 

Blogger robespierre said ... (6:34 PM) : 

nice shirt... convict style. It looks fresh

 

Anonymous Xavier said ... (6:42 PM) : 

This look is perfect. Even the water bottle with the color of his skin, is perfect.

 

Blogger EMNH said ... (7:03 PM) : 

Oooh. What a look. Even with the facial hair he manages to keep the feminity. There is something sad and dangerous about his look...kind of like a street kid...

 

Blogger lizzy washington said ... (7:47 PM) : 

i like it-. i get it. but the straps on that tunic needs to be bigger. that isawomens dress overjeans.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:23 PM) : 

oh, hi guy!

love the androgynous flavor. the jeans are beautiful, could even be slimmer for my taste. who cares if stripes are played out, it's the way that top sits on his shoulders that blows my mind.

 

Anonymous a. said ... (5:57 AM) : 

yeah, even though he's wearing currently-trendy stripes, there is something about the way his look comes together that is absolutely timeless.

i'm guessing the sartorialist called him dior boy because he's channeling the general dior homme aura. he seems like he might be the type of boy hedi slimane would pluck off the sidewalk and cart away to feature in his next show/have has his next muse/etc.

 

Blogger My Place said ... (10:10 AM) : 

Please put another picture up. Quickly.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:22 PM) : 

He looks like he can push the gondolas in Venice , so cool

 

Blogger Amory Blaine said ... (12:07 AM) : 

It's a bit contrived but I'll admit, I rather like the slim jeans paired with a definitively trendy shoe - I will say, however, I still have yet to buy into the ghastly, garish & oversized sneaker fetish. I doubt I ever will.

All the same, in the Southern California vernacular, "I'd hit it."

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:11 AM) : 

Cool european style ,ciao from Amsterdam.

 

Blogger MD said ... (3:58 PM) : 

Am I totally dating myself by saying my first thought was to hum along, "do you really want to hurt me....do you really want to make me cry.....?"

Okay, no dreads so it's not Boy George redux. What works, I think, is his stance in the photograph, the little bit of stubble or whatever that facial hair he's sporting is and the clingy, drapiness of the black and white striped shirt. And the skin is beautiful....

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:36 PM) : 

i think that he looks really cool! really in fashion. this kind of style suits hima lot.
