WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Anne Harris


I recently had the opportunity to meet with the brilliant muralist Anne Harris in her New York studio. I’m pictured here in front of one of her monumental pieces, a commission in progress soon to be placed in a fine dining room. Harris’ deeply poetic works draw inspiration from old masters like Tiepolo, realized afresh through an innovative use of scale and a highly refined sense of color. In Harris’ words, “What I try to create is a timeless room that has its own narrative which transports its guest to another time and place.” We at WIJW can say confidently that Ms. Harris continues to accomplish her mission with great aplomb. I’ve been looking forward to collaborating with Anne in the near future to re-create the “Monet” inspired murals Yves Saint Laurent commissioned for his country house – I also love the look of tapestry upholstered walls like the ones at the superlative Chateau de Groussay – it should be an easy thing to find a good room for just such a work.

In consort with Harris’ beautiful mural, I’m wearing a royal blue cotton sateen jacket by Gucci, hot pink cotton shirt with contrast white collar and french cuffs by Turnbull and Asser, (I love these new fitted shirts!), Seaman Schepps silver pearl and pale blue sapphire cufflinks, Etro silk pocket square, Hermes “blue jeans” blue leather belt, white skinny jeans by Diesel, navy blue suede loafers by Gucci, and white leather bag also by Gucci.

    Brilliant! This is great seeing someone wearing clolourful clothes because most of the time men just wear dark colours which is a pity.
    The mural at the background is beautiful!

    James, This is one of your best shots to date. That blue is so very flattering on you, and brings out your sexy eyes. I really like the bright fuschia shirting with the royal blue sateen, the white collar picking up the jeans, and the cool aristocratic loafers, this is a total look ! What’s in that bag? Tons of cash I imagine. You look like a superstar in this get-up baby ! Hope to see more of these exquisite Cecil Beaton jewel tones and shimmering textiles on your hot bod. Anne is a genius too, I wonder if she knows Chuck Fisher.

    So funny, I was wearing an almost identical outfit the other day.
    Loved wearing it and people complemented me esp with the shirt’s colour.
    Seeing you wearing these colours, I say brilliant indeed. Love this look !

    Is this the cerulean that was discussed at length in “Devil Wears Prada” ? I feel halucinatory when I look at it !
