Style Icon: Nick Wooster

Posted by Drake General Store, 3 weeks, 6 days ago

“There are no absolutes. For every rule there is, it’s made to be broken and if you have style you can wear anything you want.” – Nick Wooster

That’s easy for ‘The Woost’ to say. This fashion week fixture + previous Men’s Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman embodies impeccable taste. With his handlebar moustache, tattoo sleeves + dandy style, Nick Wooster has been dubbed the “street style demi-god”, making photogs rush to capture his every (amazing!) look. What makes Wooster’s style so inspirational + ionic you ask? It comes down to his ability to mash prints, colours + proportions with the utmost of restraint. The result is always an undeniably cool look, which frankly would leave the average person walking around looking like a fool.
