DEJON MARQUIS PITTI UOMO DAY 3 was a little hectic because that was the day we moved out of the hotel and into our apartment. I was so late to Pitti I almost thought it was a waste of a day. Luckily we were focused enough to move quickly and pull my outfit together. I wanted to give Pitti a different feel from my dapper suits I was wearing and do print on print. This was an outfit I originally chose for Milan Fashion Week, but as a last minute decision I wore it to Pitti. The Blazer and pants was a mix of small and broad checker prints with a plain white dress shirt and plain black tie. Now the scarf I added because I like the way the stripes played off of the checkered pattern of the blazer. This was a special day for me, because a lot of people knew I was working on a project but didn’t know what. I was working on the Dejon Marquis bag collection. I had the opportunity to showcase my “Marquis” Suede and Leather Book Bag at Pitti. It’s called the “Marquis Bag” due to the diamond shaped pattern sewn into the upper suede portion of the book bag. So I was really happy about that and as an accessory it completed my look along with the “Dappper Bear” also by me.
