fashion icon: shail upadhya

 Treća dob, UN-ov diplomat i najoriginalniji fashionista današnjice. Posljednjih se godina sve više govori o 'seniorskoj modi' i starijim osoba s genijalnim stilom, ali nakon dokumentarca 'Bill Cunningham New York' u kojem se na trenutak prikazuje Shail, nisam mogao odoliti proguglati njega i njegova modna izdanja.
I naravno, oduševio sam se.
Odijela u apsolutno najluđim printevima koji postoje često su njegova kreacija i dizajn, a što god mislite o njemu ja ću reći da je hrabar i inspirativan. Iako već desetljećima radi kao UNov diplomat to ga nije spriječilo niti ubilo njegovu kreativnost i duh- samo je pouka svima kako ozbiljni poslovi koji zahtjevau 'uniforme' ne moraju određivati naš stil.

Nadam se da ću jednog dana i ja ostati dosljedan sebi i svemu onom što mi je u glavi, a ne se prilagoditi okolini.

Hvala Shail! < 3

A senior citizen, a UN diplomat and the most original fashionista today. It's Shail Upadhya. These last few years, everybody's talking about 'mature fashion' and older people with fabulous style, but after the documentary "Bill Cunningham New York' (which shows Shail for a moment), I could not resist to google Mr. Upadhya and his style.
And I was amazed.
Wildly printed suits that are (most of the time) his own designs, and whatever you think of him, I need to say that he's brave and inspiring. Working as a diplomat for decades did not stop or kill his creativity and spirit - it's a lesson to everyone that thinks serious jobs that require a 'uniform' must dictate your own personal style.


I hope one day and I stay true to myrself and everything that's in my head, and that I won't settle for anything less because of what other people may think



Thank You, Shail! < 3
