Ricky Pedaline

Ricky Pedaline is an art director from Ohio.  His work, just as much as his clothes, reflects this bold, esoteric, pleasure-seeking spirit that seems to captivate most of New York’s creative underground scene today.  I’ve long admired Ricky’s sense of style—I’ve known him for years of looks that I could probably never wear or even attempt to.  He gets a kick out of taking pieces that are typically difficult to wear, and making them his worn, and I find great merit in that.  He lists science fiction, sportswear, and “tacky Eastern European style” as his inspirations and says that a European undercover cop/spy is the look he tries to achieve.

    The guy surely knows how to wear pieces that are “difficult to wear”.
