I grew up watching movies of Cowboys and Indians and the adventures of the west. But the look I decided to post is not actually about the American Indians but is about the real Indians from India:) I thought it would be a good mix to fuse indian tradition and Western rugged styles. The ruggednes of the cowboy look and the intricate opulent detailing of Indian embroidery.
Reds and golds were the prevailing color palette accentuated with beige. Id imagine if a funky cowboy travelled to India this is how he would wear the east meets west look.

I really love your looks and your words. I love the mix of red, beige and gold. But the greens on the necklace really stand out! It looks amazing! In that hat you look kinda... funky? I don't know how to name it but you look absolutely superb .As always you are genius in details and accessories. LOVE IT ANDRE!

This is a wonderful "east-meets-west" fusion look, Andre! The colours have a very warm intensity - and the emerald necklace is an excellent contrast. I love the combination of textures - placing the leather vest alongside the crumpled-style of the tunic is beautiful. The gold detailing adds a very classy touch to the outfit. Marvellous!

This is stunning Andre!!!! I love the luxe feel to this look and how much of contrast it is to your last look but yet at the same time still has small elements for the last look like the stitching and embroidery!!!!! I love the warm colours of the red and the gold!!! And i adore the look of your tunic with the embroidery and the leather waistcoat!!!! I really like it when textures are mixed in a look!!! Your chunky cuffs and your emerald colour necklace looks works beautiful with this look!!!

Hyped!!!!! :):):):):)

This is supposed to be the American sort of cowboy but what I see in this look is the lesser-known Mexican counterpart known as the Vaqueros. There is definitely a rich ethnic flavour to the delicious choice of colors and patterns (love the inclusion of elephants!) that makes me think of hispanic roots. Also, Machu Picchu definitely springs into my mind with the tunic-like shapes and drapery. Wonderful as usual Andre honey <3
Andre Judd
