Whether you follow runway shows or not it’s no secret that everything we wear is inspired by them. Each color, shape, stich is first created by a selective group of people working with the most pronounced designers. This Fashionisto used Temple University as his runway wearing inspirations from Marc Jacob to John Varvatos.
From head to toe I spy trend after trend. Beginning with his Ray Bans, something just about every Fashionisto/Fashionista can’t live without these days. But what I found most intriguing was his safety pin accessory on the lapel of his blazer. The safety pin first made its entrance back in 2007 as a jewelry accessory or an accent. Lately, it can be seen in Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 collection as a scarf clasp. Regardless you can bet it’ll be trickling down into a more common trend very soon. But you saw it here first, on the lapel of this Temple University Fashionisto.
Oh but the combat boots, the key piece to every girl's fall/winter wardrobe last year. Recently I’ve been seeing more and more boys exhibiting this style and I think I know why… Men’s combat boots dominated Milan’s fall 2010 show. As usual it takes a little while to move from runway to department store so two years later it’s about time. Here I see a resemblance of John Varvatos design, masculine, fashionable yet casual.
There you have it, every single thing you wear wasn’t just thrown together. Your favorite designers put a lot of devotion into choosing each detail that will then piece together their runway display. A display that slowly inspires and trickles down into pieces you fall in love with in your favorite stores. So all hail this Fashionisto for he’s a walking runway model. Who knew his outfit had so much more behind it?
