BEAUTY: Clothing--John Varvatos
At Milano Moda Uomo, John Varvatos presented his usual rock n' roll versions of Edwardian and Dandy-inspired coats, jackets, and waistcoats for Spring Summer '15. All the materials look well suited for Spring and Summer with what looks like wrinkled and crinkled linen or crepe in lots of light, linen-y colors. True to form, some of the pieces seem to reach back even further in British history, to the days of The Pirate or the English Highwayman. Indeed, some of Varvatos' inspiration seems like it could have come from Dame Vivienne Westwood, starting with her seminal Pirate collection! The silhouette is dashing, a bit louche, even swashbuckling!
