And what of the hair this season?
I have a little bit of a reputation for unveiling a new hair style each season, particularly in February as it falls between New Year’s and my birthday. This season I’m inspired by Andrew Garfield from The Social Network and Matt Bomer from White Collar. Somewhere between the two is the look you’ll see me sporting this Fashion Week. The extremely talented Stefano Greco from Mizu salon on Park Avenue has been responsible for my ever changing hairstyles for many years now.
Who are you most looking forward to seeing this season?
Simon Spurr – for the clothes, not Matt Bomer in the front row. Seriously, though, I really adore the Spurr aesthetic. The silhouettes feel really fresh for menswear and if they get a foothold in the American man’s consciousness could be as directional as Giorgio Armani’s soft shouldered jackets on Richard Gere in American Gigolo. I’m also interested to see what’s become of the designers I previously called “ones to watch” – Robert Geller, Carlos Campos, Bespoken, and many others.
