Hey, gidday mates! I’m coming to you live from chilly Christchurch, New Zealand, where I’m hanging with my Mum, Dad, Nana, and Miss Jenny Albright for three days before things get going in Auckland. From Friday-Sunday I’m shooting the Barkers campaign with Tom Bull; on Monday New Zealand Fashion Week starts; and on a few nights scattered in the mix, Jenny and I will be DJing some cool spots in Auckland. It’s all happening! I shot this the day before I flew out for my epic NYC — Frankfurt — Singapore — Auckland voyage, and it was inspired by the sorts of outfits Tom Cruise wore in movies like Rain Man and Roger Moore wore in his later outings as James Bond.
If you take a close look you’ll see that the two greys are different colours — the jacket is a darker charcoal and the pants are a schoolboy graphite. Grey is one of the only shades that you can layer in this way and have it still look natural. Try it out — almost every grey matches with every other grey so long as one of them is a bit darker.
And one quick note on the fit: The jacket here is one size bigger than I’d usually wear, and it only works because the pants are tailored so close. Hedi Slimane does it all the time on the Saint Laurent runways
