NEWS: Sartorial Healing

Edited by

Last week there was a nice discussion revolving around the fall of modern R&B on the Sart Inc Tumblr.  Readers were making the case for modern acts carrying on the strong tradition of rhythm and blues, while others lamented on the loss of arguably the genre's greatest artist – Marvin Gaye.  All the talk of Gaye had me revisiting not only his incredible catalog of tunes, but his equally impressive personal style.  Marvin's status as a style icon is too often overlooked and he frequently takes a backseat to various Jazz aficionados such as Miles Davis and John Coltrane.  Marvin's style was as smooth and genuine as his music.  From his traditional suiting during Motown's heyday to his work wear and blue collar inspired looks during the late 70's/early 80's, Marvin Gaye's style was a study in organic evolution on par with his musical career.  Masculine while at the same time elegant, from the studio to the stage to the red carpet, Marvin was one of the best until his untimely and senseless death in 1984.

Style Icon: Elvis Presley
The much-parodied style of Elvis Presley deserves way more credit.

Elvis, who would have celebrated his 74th birthday today, was more than blue suede shoes, capes, and jumpsuits.  

Like his music, Elvis’ fashion sense fused a variety of influences.  A true performer, Elvis’ style evolved over the course of his career, drawing inspiration from both his roots and personal tastes, and the styles of the time.  

Early on, Elvis sported the greasy black hair of a white Southern trucker (complete with sideburns) and the latest styles from black clothing stores.  By the 1960s, Elvis had been dying his hair black for several years and started a sort of hair-sculpting regimen. 

Before the theatrics of the ’70s, his style created a tight tension between good Southern boy and rock-and-roll bad boy.  Usually conservative looking –until he started moving– he often wore sharp suits, pegged pants, high collars, and the occasional pair of blue jeans.

Then over time he moved on to his Army fatigues, black leather, Aloha Eagle jumpsuit with cape, and flamboyant western outfits.

Well, we all make mistakes.  Whether a hit or miss, Elvis’ fashion will always be remembered for its individuality and influence on others.

Thanks, Elvis Fashion.

Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me…I Still Want To Wear My Sunglasses!

Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me...I Still Want To Wear My Sunglasses!Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me...I Still Want To Wear My Sunglasses!Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me...I Still Want To Wear My Sunglasses!Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me...I Still Want To Wear My Sunglasses!Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me...I Still Want To Wear My Sunglasses!Put your iPod on shuffle on you’re bound to hear some oldies you haven’t listened to in quite a while. Sitting in the airport at 6:00am yesterday to catch my flight back to the Big Apple, I came across some amazing oldies like Come on Eileen and Dancing In September. Trust me when I say that no musical artist brings back more memories than Sir Elton John. I heard the intro to Bennie and the Jets and I was immediately reminiscing on the good old days when I told my dad to “turn this junk off” from the backseat of the car. Now, I can’t get enough of the guy! He may be flamboyant and a bit too over the top with his fashion choices, but let’s face it, the guy never ceases to amaze me with his sunglasses! I remember hearing on one of those television “in the life of” programs that Elton John wears a different pair of sunglasses for every concert and has never worn the same pair twice. We might not be too fond of his star-shaped frames dunked in pink glitter, but Elton John is certainly a sunglass style icon.

Carine Roitfeld has phenomenal style. Her look is so versatile, it’s as if she could have come from any decade of this century. Roitfeld mixes and matches designers for a look that is all her own. She is a personal style icon to me because she unites two of my favorite things- fashion and journalism. I think we will see her doing great things for Vogue in the near future.

Lucy Liu never fails to rock out looks straight off the runways of New York Fashion Week. And, she actually looks good wearing them, unlike other celebrities who attempt to wear such pieces. Whether it be by wearing the crazy pink layered cape or the elegant black lace gown, Liu’s message is clear: Wear it. Wear it confidently. Wear it and love yourself in it. Amen sister.

Her vibrant colored hair, bikini tops and bindis inspired me to develop my own style in a sea of cookie cutter 13-year-old girls. I never walked around my suburban neighborhood donning garb quite as wacky as Gwen’s, but she was a huge inspiration for thinking outside of the box. I’ve always looked up to her, from the punk days to her classy street style of today. Thank you, Gwen Stefani, for never disappointing me.

Maybe one of Andy Warhol’s most famous muses, Edie Sedgwick inspired the fashion world more than anything else. Her short hair, huge earrings and furs, dark eyebrows and ultra-high heels beneath pin thin legs were avant-garde during her generation. Sedgwick’s time at The Factory would inspire fashion for decades to come.
