I’m going into an important meeting on wednesday which of course begs the question, what to wear. It’s a really exciting project for me that I want to tell you more about, but it will be after June … so back to the dressing, I feel that as photographer you kind of have a free pass to dress however you like, when everyone wears suits and you wear the black jeans, boots and shirts you can pass as the wild creative one … or am I wrong ? I don’t really know, the truth is that I feel more comfortable with a little dressing and I love a good pair of statement trousers for that. I’ve been searching for red pants in ages, in the end I decided for this pair of Joseph which fit incredible, the only thing that threw me were the 100% Polyester part but it seems hard to find natural fabrics these days. Second question of course, what shoes to wear with it ? A pair of pumps would be cool maybe even in white, but then I might come across as someone who can’t carry heavy photo equipment … so you see still some considerations to make.
Here are some great samples of really cool red or reddish ‘statement’ trousers. I love Marina Larroude in her Kenzo pair in the 1st and 2nd shot, isn’t it nice to see how she combines them in different ways ?
