The opulence of the Maharajas inspired me this look but instead of going too literal I fused native american ikat patterns(in the bag) and industrial looking jewelry, to create this cultural intermix.

I love how these pieces came together so effortlessly. One idea led to another. What pulled this look together were these newly acquired Vivienne Westwood jacket and python laceups.

multicultural FUSIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON sir andre.

it's an ethnic orgasm i must say.

adoring the mix of diverse influences, from the turban,which is actually a tee (very genius) -you could be in india right now with this one, plus the ikat bag (whoa,i want one too.pattern is sublime), the v.westwood jacket,which has an interesting shape and detail, to the shirt underneath (the yellow complimented the mustard-y tan color of the jacket btw), to the interesting chain neckpiece and the awesome shoooooooooooooooooooooooooes...

HYPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPED to the millionth.
