WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

City Safari


It may look like I’m at a bazaar in Africa, but this is actually the flea market on West 25th St. between Broadway and 6th Ave. in New York City. One can find a great selection of hand crafted textiles here, and I often have pillows made from them for my clients. This sort of textile can add a the perfect human touch to a room. If you are not near a market like this check out my friend Sharyn Compton’s site to find an amazing selection of items.

Am pictured here admiring a spectacular cloth in shades of green with gold thread that would be perfect to use as pillows! I’m wearing a Tom Ford brown cotton safari shirt, over a Michale Kors ivory cotton knit top with crocheted placket, olive drab cotton shorts by Masons, woven white cotton belt with bamboo D rings and crocodile buckle by Gucci, “Chelsea” boots in brown leather by Gucci, brown suede and saddle leather satchel also by Gucci and Tom Ford sunglasses.

  2. I think I want some of those quilted pieces that are hanging behind you…

    And look at all those fabulous beads….!

    Very cool stuff. I have not been shopping with you since 1980. I think maybe we’re overdue? đŸ˜‰

  3. I wouldn’t have thought boots and short worked- but I will have to try it out!

    Instead of chelsea boots I would have worn dessert boots with this outfit.
