The guy who every guy desires to be — stylish and intellectual to boot. Classic, well-tailored pieces are key. He leaves room for sartorial expression with contrast socks.
The guy with a decadent edge and an air of don’t care. He favours romantic velvets and long, flowing layers that speak of dandified languor. There is a mood of romanticism, sensuality and mystery.
