Menswear at New York Fashion Week: Angelo Flaccavento

Outside Proenza Schouler
Italian fashion journalist Angelo Flaccavento has for several years now been one of the most photographed faces of Pitti Uomo and other major menswear events. If you read coverage of those events and still don't recognize Flaccavento from this image, it's probably because he recently shaved the big puffy beard that used to define his look. Read The Satorialist's profile of Flaccavento here to see what I'm talking about. When I spotted Flaccavento outside Proenza Schouler at this past New York Fashion Week, no one was paying any attention to him. It might have been his newfound beardlessness. Or it might simply have been that photographers don't so much care about men at New York Fashion Week.In any case, I was quietly thrilled to get this shot. Angelo Flaccavento has become one of my personal fashion icons.
