Male Muse: Keegan Singh.

January 9, 2010
Of all the menswear looks of the noughties, none was more prevalent than the slim-silhouetted London rock-infused waif, or what I like to term – the skinny-Hedi-indie look. From Doherty (Pete) to Dior Homme, it was the one style that truly stuck, what with skinny jeans still constituting a staple component of many a man’s wardrobe.

But no one worked (and still works…) it with quite as much panache as NYC-based stylist Keegan Singh. Having emerged on the scene as a model, Singh made like any fashionisto worth his studded Prada brogues by tackling the two Ps – going to the parties, getting to know the people.

^ Black on black on black but Singh manages to keep the look a good distance from being too literally rock by refraining from incorporating too much leather, studs etc.
I’m tempted to say something along the lines of “Granted it’s not groundbreaking…” in order to excuse its immediately apparent simplicity but true style doesn’t really involve much ostentatious attention-grabbing attire. I hate to reference the too-tired adage but Singh wears his clothes, they do not wear him. The skinnies, the winklepickers and the more-than-fitted blazer may be items I’m near sick to the teeth of but this is Singh’s style and with that Morrissey-inspired simultaneously foppish and punk-rock hair, he’s got it all under control.
