echoing the vintage 50s prints on the tie, a monogram by Céline:)

I wanted a very atypical look this time inspired by old world cultures. The starting off point was this incredible necktie by Coral Garrett. He calls it a Forked tie which are made of two traditional silk ties cutted on a half on their slim part and bound by a leather wraparound patch. I love it. This 50s shirt printed tie gave me an idea: to pair it with a vintage shirt with avian prints. From there the play on feathers on a floppy hat
was the next move. To tie everything I wore this olive wax coated canvas parka and a 50s inspired monogram print camera bag. I feel like a traveller from some ancient and extraordinary place:)

Escapism has been my motif of late. Reality bears too much weight that I find oftentimes unbearable. Fashion is the best and quickest way out.

So incredible Andre!!! I cant tell you how much i love this look!!! The print on your shirt is magnificent and the same with your tie!!! I agree that the parka brings the whole look together. The chunkiness of your boots defiantly balances out with the volume of your hat, which by the way is utterly amazing!!!! Sooo sooo amazing Andre!!!!!
