Like father, like son

It has been a while that I’m thinking about trying some photo series with my father. Fashion also is about inheritance. This not only means inheriting a wardrobe – my father is much taller than me, a shame – but also a way to comprehend fashion over creators, “miracle workers” from big Parisian houses. Growing up at the side of a man wearing the suit like no one does, no matter what he tries on and he gives it character, this teaches you the concept of style from your childhood. I won’t fool yourselves, all was not perfect, some outfits just made me fly of the handle. But I’m still thinking about this summer day when he suddenly arrived on the mound overlooking the football field, I was 13, Jean-Jacques was wearing this impeccable beige suit, matt complexion, sunglasses, end of the day, sun was about to go down, everything was perfect. None of my team-mates could have missed him. This was a way, as I was still young, to learn what the word class means. In such cases, I wasn’t surpised at all to see my team members fighting to get driven back home in our car.

This may be something related to the fact of posing with my father but I opted for a comfortable and “rock” outfit. The shawl collar jacket is for comfort and the jeans, boots and scarf worth for the “rock” side. Once again, I went to the womenswear area to find it. By the way, Romano did also spot it at the other side of France. With the winter approaching, boots are more than ever actual! These fine and sober ones perfectly match with jeans.

Jean-Jacques has chosen a casual-chic outfit. Ok it’s sunday, but never fool around with the outfit. Even on sundays I’m used to see my father well dressed, this shooting is no exception. So, for Jean-Jacques it is denim shirt and chinos. Why a denim shirt? Because it is not for young admen only. This one’s raw aspect gives more soberness and maturity. The lightweight scarf adds a touch of dandy and the shoes some quirky thanks to their rust color.
