boy germs

Excerpt from an interview with Edward von Bertouch and James St Johnson of the Sydney fashion label Beat Poet:

What place does colour have in your ideal wardrobe?
James: I believe the only colours that should be present in modern menswear wardrobe are neutral colours. The focus should always be on cut, fabric and texture, in that order. Colour is an unnecessary and distracting element. It has its place in art, not on the body. I feel the same about graphic prints; save them for the gallery.

Oh My God. Have you ever heard anyone in Australian fashion talk like that?

As a rule, I don't care about men's fashion...
but in this instance I might have to make an exception.
