All white is so chic.


Blogger Faith said ... (4:45 PM) : 

I love New York!!! His glasses remind me of Karen Walkers!

Preludes to a Dream


Blogger Michael said ... (4:46 PM) : 

Now can that be practical, at all?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:46 PM) : 

Quite the Japanese aesthetic. I like it on him. How are earth does he stay so clean????


Anonymous lucitron said ... (4:46 PM) : 

I hope he has a chain guard. Wouldn't want grease marks on those trousers! But white beats those garish, green-reflective cycling jackets any day.


Blogger Kyle said ... (4:48 PM) : 

Wow, that is daring. He seems to have just the right type of confidence to pull this off though. The juxtaposition of his futuristic outfit and retro bike and big chain look is quite amusing though. Great shot!

contradiction? the bike and the million dollar outfit just don't make sense in my head. #MYBAD

I feel there's a theme here, but I can't put my finger on it.

Oh ! Terence Koh !


Blogger Liz S said ... (5:19 PM) : 

Oooo, not sure about the sunglasses or the medical effect this has on me. But I do like his boldness.

Blogger Unknown said ... (6:05 PM) : 

This outfit is so cleaned and so full of white: amazing in our days where everyone wears black clothes.

The sunglasses and the backpack are just wonderful: so conceptual and visionaire the sunglasses!!


Blogger Angel said ... (6:09 PM) : 

I really feel like I'm in the future in Back to the Future here.. Those glasses are nuts. Very confident and brave outfit for sure.

Blogger Jo said ... (6:36 PM) : 

Seriously. How does he stay clean??? Is his back pack full of identical shiny outfits?


Blogger EYE-LOVE COSMETICS said ... (6:42 PM) : 

If I wore all white, by the end of the day it would be brown.


Blogger Notes From ABroad said ... (6:55 PM) : 

I love it .... and he looks like one of those funny Japanese movies about people in outer space :)


Blogger Tess said ... (7:03 PM) : 

I saw the image before the title. I am so suprised this was taken in New York. Men just never dress up in the US. I'm happy to see that there are some fashion leaders in NYC.

Anyone else thinking Lady Gaga Bad Romance right now? Seriously I applaud him for one the glasses are fantastically Willy Wonka-esque and wearing all white is always an achievement in my book. All in all nice photo.


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (7:15 PM) : 

I already thought at fashion week: The boys sure like their backpacks. But 100% white? Special!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:25 PM) : 

Mr. Koh's daily uniform of all white is always interesting but I must say I am more of a fan of his Hermès Bicycle. No wonder he has such a thick bike chain haha.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 PM) : 

I guess the headgear of his HazMat suit is in the backpack.

No, I do not like it.


Blogger runner4peace said ... (7:38 PM) :

the chain makes it!


Blogger Celia said ... (7:57 PM) : 

Luuuuuuurve this so much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:01 PM) : 

Terence Koh is Chinese-Canadian. Let's not generalize hip Asians by placing them in a Japanese category.

Peter pan collar and rolled pant legs for the win.

Terence is sweet.. I'm a bit surprised his bike is not monotone or white.

im a little creeped out by his glasses!! They remind me of willy wanka. the all white ensemble while riding a bicycle is quite admirable, though.

A man who fell to earth... and managed not to get dirty in the process! (The little Peter Pan collar is the ultimate touch here.)

Is he a Japanese living in NY? - He gotta be!
Only a Japanese can pull off a look like that.
Well, he certainly got the/my attention.

He looks very brave and neat, but how does he manage to stay clean on his bike in New York?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:06 AM) : 

this is called not trying too hard. it makes me wonder if, in my carefree youth, i ever looked this striking.

He looks like Scotty just beamed him up. From Tokyo.

It's so difficult to photograph people on the street, especially if they're wearing something outlandish. You do this well.

I don't know...looks a bit like a futuristic sanitation worker to me. But then again, I'm not a huge fan of all white in the first place.

Thats therence koh !!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:32 PM) : 

Coming from a Chinese background, I've got to say that another Asian guy dressed head to toe in white just makes me think someone has died.

White is the color of mourning and death in Chinese cultures.

So, no, the guy doesn't look good dressed like that.


Anonymous kim said ... (4:43 PM) : 

Wow. He's pulling that look off!

my favorite kind color is black because it is very good


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:13 AM) : 

there is another guy in the lower east side (an elderly white fellow) whose schtick is to wear all white clothes too (hat, shirt, pants, shoes) that he seems to assemble himself. he is to be seen walking in the park about a block from where this was taken. it would have been great if he walked by and said to terence, "that's my gimmick"- but at least the other fellow doesn't have the goofy glasses. and why doesn't terence go all the way , get a white bike and paint his face white too? art joker!!

Terence Koh! Always in white, and always sparkling clean. Whether he's Canadian-American or not (he was actually born in China), he does dress Gaga a lot when she's in Japan. He helped her with her famous pearl outfit(all white)for amfAR in New York and performed with her at GagaKoh(also in all white)in Japan. He's also been spotted with her in new york at the MOMA Exibit.

Any other color and he'll look like a walking m&m.

i love white


Blogger the temporary said ... (11:42 PM) :
