All Navy Everything
Ph: Schuman, Ton
Girlfriend in a Coma came on the other day, and I wondered why Morrissey isn’t more of a style reference despite his popularity. His style résumé can still bear currency today…
Tweedy coats and cool-guy specs. White denim. Sprezzy collars and aviators. Western shirts. Air ties and half-tucks. The Man-Brooch (OK, maybe not the man-brooch (mooch?) but this was the 80s).
And #Menshair. Lots and lots of #Menshair.
Coat draped over shoulder, never worn, sleeves dangling. Sporting Isabel Marant sneaker wedges, carrying a Celine tote. Wearing “skinnies” and “sunnies”. High-Low. Something, anything from Zara (apparently Zara is acceptable, revered even, in womenswear). An item that’s slouch-y, drape-y, poof-y, perfect-y, as long as it ends in -y. Bracelets on top of bracelets, wrapped inside a bracelet, with a bracelet dangling off a bracelet, putting Pitti mewelry stackers to shame. Faux streetstyle scene, in a romantic/awkward pose. Quality photography, not Tumblr/Insta/menswear mirror selfies. DSLR stuck on shallow depth. Contests to “win this stuff I’m already wearing”. REAL ad revenue, paid for looking cute.
