DAMN! Kate Ross is not only the house designer behind Distinguished Cravat — an apparel company reinventing the bow tie — she also embodies new possibility. Her genderbending style is radiant. Like your old pal dapperQ, she understands that fashion is not a means to an end.
Check her out on MySpace to see her work the tomboy look and then see her below with matching earrings, bowtie and lip gloss. I don’t know Kate but the vibe I get from these photos, and this video interview from 360swagger.blogspot.com, is that she is unwilling to be boxed in by any paradigm. It’s that freedom that I want for myself and anyone drawn to dapperQ.
Designs from Distinguished Cravat’s 2010 Collection pictured here leave me breathless. Buy something and send me a great dapQ snap of you wearing it?
PS Thanks to Robin Cloud for giving me the heads up on Kate Ross.
