Fashion Quotable: Eric Daman
Aug 22, 2008 - by Rebecca Alexander
Eric Daman, stylist behind the Gossip Girl crew and creator of the GG inspired windows at Henri Bendel, talks about Chuck Bass:
"I love dressing Chuck Bass (played by Ed Westwick). I think we've worked to make his character dress really well. I want to try and pioneer a movement where straight men dress better."
Funny quote, cuz it seems as though many are attempting to dress the straight male, yet once he is dressed, everyone starts to wonder if he is gay, or words like metro-sexual are thrown around. Why does the way a man dress have to do with his sexual preference? Why can't men be groomed, take care of themselves, and dress fashionable without anyone questioning their sexuality? Have to give Eric props, for making Chuck Bass one of the shows most fashionable characters, but a pioneer he is not...all he did was bring back plaid.
