We are inspired every day by movies, nature, history and athletes, but travel could easily be considered the biggest shaker when thinking of mixing up a wardrobe.
In Sports Illustrated’s “Fashionable 50” last week, Russell Westbrook said, “For basketball we travel a lot, and I’m able to visit hotels and see different fabrics and art on the walls.” He was named Number Two, so we think he’s got some clout.
It’s always worth our while to travel through time and bring some trends back with us, say, from 1970’s New York to modern day Lenny Kravitz’s living room. Perhaps a Japanese indigo dyeing technique is adapted from the 10th century and utilized in a denim shirt for RRL by Ralph Lauren.
Maybe you’re seeing a sick pair of shoes on the street in London and working them into your footwear rotation in Colorado or you’re dressing so you can transition with ease from museum to beers with the boys in rainy Paris, your travels serve as the best inspiration and reason to get dressed in the morning.
