When the temperatures hit the 80s and 90s, New Yorkers start to melt. These three style mavens each tackle the heat with their own brand of insouciance.
Debonair: Native New Yorker and real estate consultant John Armand Bremont loves New York in the spring and summer, because the warmth is like a drug and everyone’s in a good mood. He sports a dapper navy suit with brass buttons and a pocket square folded in three peaks. His open-necked shirt is the only concession to the heat.
Flair: West Village author and actor John Gilman sports a vintage 1940s Champion Duke Kahanamoku Hawaiian shirt. He pulled it out of the bottom drawer for a casual summer garden party in The West Village, chillin’ with white wine and watermelon.
Flare: Musician and vintage aficionado Lun Badi is rocking more vintage items than you can shake a stick at, including a Gucci bag with hot pink trim, Fendi sunglasses, a classic Guess jean jacket, and a flare-orange skirt-slip with pink lace trim. Lun scored these treasures at Beacon’s Closet, a vintage treasure store on West 13th Street. All photos by Karen Rempel.
