The Art Director Who Calls Drapey Blouses and Dangly Necklaces ‘Casual Menswear’


Art director Chenta Yu isn't afraid of a little androgyny. "I would describe my look as dandy. Definitely playing a little on the feminine side, but more like menswear." When we caught up with Chenta, he was wearing a necklace and blouse from Assembly New York with tailored Zara pants and Acne gladiator sandals. Chenta counts Dries Van Noten and Helmut Lang among his favorite designers, but he wasn't always so style-savvy. "I remember back in the day I wore straight-up T-shirts and jeans," he admitted. "Now I've gotten in touch with so many brands around here. And the vintage, that was hugely inspiring as well for me." See more of Chenta in our Video Look Book.
