Nudie Suits

These fashion masterpieces are all excess, sometimes with sexy images of naked ladies, pot leaves, pills and poppies, worn by everyone from Hank Williams to Keith Richards to Ronald Reagan.

Nudie’s beginnings were far humbler than the “country luxury” aesthetic he came to create. Born in 1902 in Ukraine, Nuta Kotlyarenko was so poor that he often had mismatched shoes collected from cast-offs (an indignity he later paid homage to by intentionally wearing mismatched boots—though generally of his own high-end custom design). After immigrating to America and changing his name at age 11, Cohn followed in his boot-maker father’s footsteps and apprenticed as a tailor. In 1940, he and his wife moved to LA and started Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors in their garage, quickly becoming the preferred couturier of the country music scene.

Metallic Hair Color

December 18, 2014 @ Style

Those rainbow shades and ombré dye jobs seen on the streets and runway all year long are giving way to something shiny and new—at least in London. “We were seeing a lot of metallics trending in fashion and we thought, Hmm, why not hair?” says Mel Halacoglu, a senior colorist at Hari’s salon on King’s Road. Neither an ash nor platinum, this particular shade of “bronze” helps “tone down full-on blonds, as well as softly lightening winter brunettes,” she explained.Unlike the gold and silver flecks found in some nail polishes, there is no actual metal in the dye—it’s more about the magical sheen it produces.

Hari’s New Metallics (from £150), available at Hari’s Salons; see harissalons.com for more information.
