Each nation has defined its own personal aesthetic. Because of this, fashion designers will look to their home countries as muses to their collections. Italy is famous for its suits tailored with razor precision. Take a look at Giorgio Armani’s menswear collections to observe this Italian meticulousness firsthand. Burberry, from the rainy and cool nation of England, is famous for its scarves, trench coats and rain slickers. Tommy Hilfiger boasts an all-American brand that features, of course, red, white and blue and an overall preppy look. But how about the less developed regions of the world? What’s their aesthetic? Today’s Fashionisto answered these questions with his own flare.
This Fashionisto’s outfit was out of this world — well, out of the First World anyway. His ensemble, inspired by nature, was simply tribal. He started with an oversized, pocketed shirt that was handmade in the Southeast Asian country of Laos. Down the front and on the sleeves, the shirt featured a carefree design on midnight blue diamond panels. He paired this white top, whose color is perfect for the springtime, with a pair of olive skinny jeans. The synergy between the feel of the top and the color of the jeans really had an earthy effect. He courageously completed his ensemble with a pair of men’s gladiator sandals. If you’re as fearless as this Fashionisto, try this pair from ALDO.
What really made the outfit pop were his Eastern influenced accessories, which included animals and wood. This Fashionisto flaunted his elephant necklace and giraffe ring. Animal-inspired garments and pieces continue to boom in popularity. Get in touch with your wild side with some animal jewelry. He also garnished his wrists with wooden beaded bracelets. And just as a reminder that he is still, in fact, in America, he slipped on a simple watch and a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers.
Hint: You’re not going to find shirts like this Fashionisto’s at Neiman Marcus. The next time you go abroad, make sure you snag some handmade garments. Not only will you be supporting the locals, you’ll get a one-of-a-kind piece to add to your wardrobe, too.
