Style luminary, Charlie Porter, takes us on a sartorial sojourn from spotless tailoring to kaleidoscopic costumes.
Words Adam Bryce
Mr Charlie Porter is gearing up to present a new book entitled, What Artists Wear.
Pitched to publish early 2021, you will find delights from the closets of a uniquely curated set of prominent creatives such as Cindy Sherman, Pablo Picasso and Tracey Emin. Andy Warhol’s signature denim obsession gets a once over and Yayoi Kusama’s kaleidoscopic costume share air time with Yves Klein’s on-point tailoring.
And the man delivering the important manifesto? Porter is a writer, fashion critic and art curator, as well as lecturer in fashion at the University of Westminster. He has contributed to titles such as the Financial Times, Guardian, New York Times, GQ, Luncheon, i-D and Fantastic Man. Described as one of the most influential fashion journalists of his time — when Porter writes, we read.
Joseph Beuys in all his fishing-gear inspired glory.
