dapperQ is proud to present the first installment of He Said/We Said, based on the Spring 2011 line from Band of Outsiders. HS/WS is the brainchild of its series editor: Anita Dolce Vita.
When I first presented the photo of the ensemble and explained the “He Said/We Said” concept to the first round of participants, I was afraid that I would get such literal interpretations of the inspiration outfit that the photo shoot would end up looking like a Robert Palmer video.
The latest in a line of regular multimedia fashion features, the newly launched “He Said/We Said” series showcases real world dapperQs modeling their creative takes on high fashion menswear.
My expectations were certainly shattered (in a good way). Instead of showing up like clones of the cast from American Psycho, these fearless dapperQs colored outside the lines to create a variety of masterpieces. Each outfit captures their distinct personalities and exemplifies their determination to stay true to themselves in spite of pressures to conform. But, even more evident is that their creations embody the rich culture of New York City and reflects the diverse fashion forward sensibilities of the city’s inhabitants.
So, without further delay, I now introduce to you our first ever “He Said/We Said” models, photographed by award winning photographer Neville Elder.
We’ll be releasing individual model bio pages over the next few weeks. You’ll get to see all the hot pics, plus sneak a peek at our exclusive on-set interviews! Check back soon for more of the hotness…
