My Style Icons

Derrill Osborn shot by The Sartorialist

Wanny Di Filippo

Nana Helen and Papa Hal
Growing up, I was always impressed by how dapper and put together my grandfather was. I remember admiring his collection of brightly-hued cashmere sweaters, argyle socks, and beautifully tailored Italian sports coats. I knew that one day I would aspire to be as debonair as my Papa Hal and was always encouraged when he would tell me with an approving glance, "Ari, you look like a Beau Brummel today." My Papa has always been an icon to me, both for his incredible sense of style, and his attitude towards life.

As of late, I have adopted a few new style icons -- men who are equally daring in their outward presentation as their bold character.  I hope you take a bit of inspiration from my style icons: Wanny Di Filippo, Derrill Osborn, and Papa Hal.

How fun Wanny is. I would love to have a conversation with him for I too am a baby boomer. Linda Newton-Perry of the online bigfoot magazine Bigfoot Ballyhoo

WOW! The video of Darrill Osborn is so well done!!! The background music captured me, then the sound of his voice, then the whole presentation was WONDERFUL!! I have no interest in watches and I was completely FASCINATED!!! Derrill is a true artist through and through and the one who made the video is also!!! Was that you Ari?? And if only I could meet and be in Wanny's presence. He is one of a kind and I feel blessed just by watching him on this video. Thank you Ari!!!!

Always thought menswear was so limiting, but these men break the rules so joyfully! Nothing like color to turn a frown upside down1

Can these guys be any cooler? I love all the color and era mix and match.

As a 60 YO woman who fell in love with her Grandfather's watch fob millenia ago, I so appreciate this entry! I have recent losses whom I may document through "charms", and now I know I can link all of us through the chain - Of Life! As it were. Thank you, Ari, for appreciating the individuality and creativity of all souls.

Ari, your choices of style icons are truly wonderful. Doesn't having a source of inspiration challenge you to look at clothes and life in a new way? Loved this post and the photographs you chose.
