Male Muse: Francesco Cominelli.

January 28, 2010
When it comes to men in fashion, it’s often difficult to find someone who’s honed a style that blends the interesting and ever-so-slightly outré with the refined and classic. Francesco Cominelli, assistant editor at Vogue Hommes, makes it seem – as the cliché goes – all so effortless.

^ Usually frayed edges wouldn’t appeal but Cominelli makes it utterly convincing using luxe fabrics, a mlutch and curiously tied belt. One of my favourite looks ever. For sure.

^ I never really got the appeal of candy-coloured suits but beautifully neutralised by jet black accessories, Cominelli assures it’s possible outside a London club setting.

    I wrote an article in a similar vein to this. Cominelli is a superior style icon and the one man who lights up fashion week.
