Move over dear fashion influencers and aspiring Kardashians! The first and only true fashionista in history is a German man with a serious job that allows him to earn a lot of money, an impeccable sense of style in imagining his outfits to get noticed and at 29 he wasn’t ashamed to pose naked showing (indeed, highlighting) all his imperfections. The name? Matthäus Schwarz.
The list of adjectives that can describe Paul Poiret does not end here, of course, but I liked the idea of finding a word for each letter of his surname and that all together they could communicate the personality of one of the main protagonists of fashion history.
How do I know that Paul Poiret was really so?
Simple, I just read “King of Fashion: The Autobiography of Paul Poiret”.
