Explorer, Rebel or Legend?
February 20, 2019
In each man, lay an explorer, a rebel and a legend, waiting to be showcased. We’ve put together the timelessness of these attributes, depicted by some of the favorite people mankind has ever known and cherishes. A whiff of nostalgia and a sense of character-drawn personality dawns upon all of us who bring back these characters to life.
So, who do you want to be today?
McQueen, The King of Cool
Everybody who has ever heard of Steve McQueen can almost immediately relate him to the anti-hero ’cool’ persona that he so effortlessly adorned. He was the classical bad boy gentleman that you couldn’t resist looking at. He literally made everything cool- wearing Harringtons, pairing business formals with relaxed casuals, wearing bomber style jackets atop cardigans. His love for khakis is immeasurable as he wore them with everything- polos to blazers. His unique persona calls for unique hues such as Rust, Pine, Salmon, Sand, and Ash Blue.
Hemingway, The Explorer
Ernest Hemingway is one of the most prolific writers to have ever walked on Earth. His distinct voice and visions come from the long arduous journeys he has experienced, before letting us readers immerse in them. His distinct masculinity with grace, charm and poise, along with a slight manly ruggedness has been spoken about widely. Earthy tones set the stage for the Explorer look, along with hues of Burgundy along with the Dark Forest and Blue tones.
Dean, The Rebel
If you drive up to Griffith Observatory in L.A, with the backdrop of the famous Hollywood sign, you would notice the bust of James Dean looking suave and endearing, and uncharacteristically charismatic. He starred in Rebel without a cause, that distinguished him as an actor and made him a fashion icon to celebrate. His nonchalance gave way to a line of the cool bad boy collection, starring denims, washed indigo prints and stripes.
Newman, The Legend
Paul Newman was the undying icon of fashion, when fashion itself revolved around having exemplary taste for the finer fabrics in life. He could sport anything and pull off a classy suave gentleman underneath. Long-sleeved polos with tailored chinos, to casual rolled up Oxford shirts, he worked to elevate the Americana look that most men died to perfect. His personality commanded respect, and what better than classic hues such as Navy, Olive, Sap, Ecru, Amber and Gray and Black to look like a legend?
