FOUR STYLE ICONS
I love the dress sense of older Italian men. Luciano Barbera does it perfectly, mixing textures and colours, but above all he’s always smiling.
When I look at Fred Astaire I see a style that is such a joy. It’s very classic yet intuitive and natural. He always looks great.
I’m always interested in Jarvis Cocker. He’s got his own eclectic dress sense that works really well on him. Sometimes you need something unexpected in your life.
Glenn O’Brien, who wrote the foreword to my book, has been a huge influence. He always wore his suits in a very characteristic way that isn’t always what you expect to see in Manhattan.
