One Quart Magazine publishes selected NYC Looks photos every month.
Clara, 22 “I’m wearing some pieces from Issey Miyake. My style is inspired by my mood and the weather. I live for comfort. I’m usually either in a lot of color or black and earth tones. I’m really into color blocking and classic grunge wear.”
Rikiya, 20 “I’m wearing jackets by Landlord and The World is Your Oyster, a Comme des Garçons shirt, pants by Theory, Dr Martens shoes with Gucci accessories. Everyone who’s in NYC and people around me inspire me. I like 80s or 90s punk fashion and for this summer, I’m interested in Japanese yakuza fashion.”
Stephanie, 40 “I’m wearing a pair of WW2 pants, vintage tops and Doc Martens. My style is inspired by everything that’s from the beginning of the last century in men’s and boys’ fashion; I’m in love with the newspaper boys’ and The little rascals’ attire. I love what Jeanne Moreau wears when she dresses as a man in Jules et Jim. Anything that’s from the past is more worthy to me than contemporary garments. I hate anything mainstream such as H&M, GAP, Zara and the likes.”
Timothy, 64 “I am wearing my own pleated clothing: pants, poncho, hat, and coat. I am inspired by beauty, and textiles, especially indigenous and tribal. I like a rather wide variety of clothing, mostly antique, tribal, and ethnographic. I’m much more interested in individual style than fashion. As Coco Chanel said: Fashion changes, style remains.”
Mary, 23 “Color, shape and texture inspire my style. I like to dress like a walking masterpiece with my hand-painted pieces I do myself. Fashion empowers me, and helps me feel like I can conquer my day. I feel happiest when wearing looks that combine my lust for art and my appreciation for showcasing the female form (aka my cute lil body!)”
