#1884 Brad Goreski made it pop on day one of Milan menswear

Mr Brad Goreski was the star attraction on day one of Milan’s menswear shows, though his presence was very nearly eclipsed by that of his suit. It was current season fluro orange Jil Sander and it caused no small amount of excitement among the streetstyle-blogging masses. Everywhere he went, a trigger-happy crowd followed, and when the lights went down before each show, he stayed perfectly visible in the murk. At Burberry Prorsum he told me: “There are no limits. I decided I’d start off looking like a glow-worm and maybe I’ll tone it down a little bit later in the week.” Few men could hope to wear such a suit without looking like a giant road cone. Goreski made it seem easy.

I LIKE YOU!

I have a two-year-old Kiton raincoat/light overcoat in almost the same shade of traffic-cone orange, made out of unlined cotton treated with polyurethane. [ Kiton is so conservative it was a surprise to see it sold.]
Worn over a shirt with a raspberry design, it did impress the [ male ] box office attendants at the Aotea Centre when I bought tickets during the rainy days of the Akd festival :-)

I wish I had his kahunas to rock block pop colour like this. He's kinda become todays sartorial idol. Oooh...Sartorial Idol. A series of live and votable tv shows of bloggers/fashion folk showing off their styling skills. If you manage to make this a reality, you have to let me work with you :-)
