Dashiel Brahmann

Dashiel Brahmann is a young menswear designer and former architect-in-training from a tiny beach town in New Jersey called Longport.  Shooting Dashiel last weekend was reviving; his enthusiasm and experimental spirit got me excited about menswear again.  (This past month had been a tremendously slow one, and in the blogosphere particularly, and I found myself more involved with projects in interiors and art.)  The son of an architect and a painter, he has a keen eye for beauty and a deft hand—favoring an aesthetic he describes as a balance of “masculine and effeminate”, and he makes many of the clothes he wears.  In the taxonomy of style sensibilities, I think Dashiel and I are very much related.

These Siki Im Tevas in black grosgrain were my favorite shoes at New York Fashion Week.  Dashiel wears them with black dress socks for a sleek summer look.

    Big fan of this guy’s style now! He has so many pieces I’ve wanted, although I’d always stick to an Ann D feather over Cavalli. Love that shot of him running!

    Duck: Me too! The Cavalli was a lucky find at a vintage store. It’s such a Cavalli interpretation of the feather necklace. And thanks!

    I just bought the version of that Damir jacket which doesn’t belt, it has a button at the bottom instead. But now I want the belt-tying one too! I have to stop looking at your blog!!

    “interpretation” haha
