Flash bulbs are the drug of choice during New York Fashion Week, for everyone from the models to the editors to the random passers-by outside the shows. Thus, there is much dressing for the camera, hoping that a lens focuses on the flamboyance. Each day during NYFW, we'll bring you the most obvious photog bait, as snapped by us.
When we spied him from across the room?really the basement of the Cassina furniture store on East 56th Street?we knew he was made for the "Photog Bait" series. TV-shaped sunglasses, a patterned tunic top of Delft blue and tie-dye pants? Oh yea. Plus let's not forget his crazy multicolored socks, which are worn under?it just gets sweeter?a pair of clear jelly sandals.
As it turns out, he works for RevolveClothing.com, which is a stockist of Grey Ant, the fashion show at which we met. Just after learning his affiliation, we promptly lost his business card, but can we say that dude is on trend for Spring 2011 already.
His outfit is like the male, upside-down version of this Rodarte look, which only hit the runways yesterday!
