James Lowe and I were talking a few weeks ago about what he was going to wear to the New Zealand Music Awards, which took place on Thursday night in Auckland. He threw out a couple of options including an old made-to-measure suit with baggy pants he had lying around in the back of his closet, and a streetwear brand that does a thrifty version of a suit. I was like oh hell no, you’re going to be stared at and photographed all night long, you’ve gotta go all out. He was clear about one thing: He was wearing those Visvim shoes, and he didn’t care what anybody said. When I found out that Ella was wearing Zambesi, I sent my old mate Dayne Johnston an email, saying: DRESS JAMES TOO! Dayne was keen, and in a matter of days they whipped up this made to measure version of the S/S 2013 Mr Pink suit in Indigo Denim. I haven’t actually seen any pictures of the other Awards attendees, but I’d hazard a guess that James and Ella were most definitely the best dressed couple on the night. Oh, and Ella picked up four awards, including People’s Choice, Best Video, and Best Song for Royals. Not bad.
I LIKE YOU!
