George Michael’s style is undisputedly to be reckoned with. His biker jacket, five o’ clock shadow to wife beaters – The one to define machismo masculinity in pop culture. Surprisingly, his cult classic Freedom ’90, was inspired challenging all kinds of stereotype in the music industry -but his classic ended up not defining fashion stereotypes but masculinity in pop culture.
His struggle to carve out his own niche and in the process completely redefining not just fashion but all sorts of labels has been inspiring. It is to that spirit we pay our respect to. The following shoot tries to harness that spirit.
Nothing would be more apt to wrap-up than with his own words.
“It’s important to me that I should be free to express myself”
Nothing is complete without paying homage to oozing machismo from FAITH.
George Michael wore suits in monochromic tonality. However, the subdued looks were spruced up with his signature edginess.
In his Wham! days George experimented with Tropical ethos with printed shirts and his boyish charm – A transition to his definitive FAITH look.
