When I get inspired, I don’t like to limit myself. I try to draw inspiration–not just from the models on the runway or whatever current trends magazines are trying to set forth–but from everything.
I’ve always found inspiration from menswear, specifically men who not only influence me through their style but also through their work. One such man, is Bob Dylan. Two years ago Esquire did a story on men’s fashion inspired by Dylan and his somber beatnick style which continues to inspire my everyday style.
F21 for WWF panda tee, thrifted vintage booties, BB Dakota coat,
Vintage Etienne Aigner messenger, target beanie, thrifted cardigan
From his leather pointed boots, his billowy polka dot shirts, skinny jeans, fitted coats and his somber and mysterious dark sunglasses– he knew how to make a statement, without having to say much. And I love that.
Bob Dylan is great, if you don’t know that already.
Here are some of my favorite Dylan songs:
1. Boots of Spanish Leather (my personal fav.)
2. Positively 4th Street
3. Ballad of a Thin Man
4. With God On Our Side
5. Blowin’ in the Wind
6. Mr. Tambourine Man
8. It Ain’t Me Babe
9. Like A Rolling Stone
10. Lepoard-Skin-Pill-Box Hat
11. The Times They Are A Changin’
12. Forever Young
13. Moonshiner (another fav.)
14. Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door
15. Don’t think twice, it’s alright (love this one)
