Leszek Interview

SHARE

DW__What's your name ? How old are you and where do you live ?
My name is Leszek, though I've shortened it to Le, to make it simplier and more linguistically friendly. I'm a 24-year-old guy from Poland.


DW__When did you started blogging ?
I launched my own visual diary blog in October 2011. However, I've been tumbling since April 2009.


DW__How did you come up with the idea ?
Everything started with passion for photography. Flicking through portraiture and editorial photography had led me towards fashion culture. At some point I decided to combine the areas of photography and fashion in a blogging space. Working on photographic skills and personal style (which is an excellent subject to photograph) can be very rewarding.


DW__What does fashion mean to you ?
It's a medium of expression, a sort of art for sure. A reflection of your persona, the way you live and the things that inspire you.


DW__According to you, what is the most significant period for men's fashion ?
The 50's and 60's. Classic style is quite resistant to changes and you may refer to it in your attire whatever the fashion trends are. I draw a great inspiration from that period and often find it really refreshing.


DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world ?
I think they make the distance between haute couture and style enthusiasts shorter. Bloggers can bring fashion culture closer to their readers and create a brilliant network of fashion consciousness. Therefore, fashion world expands, becomes more available.


DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral ?
I really can't predict, although I hope they will neither replace magazines nor be ephemeral. Many fashion bloggers already do a good editorial work, magazines absorb more and more digital space. I think these two platforms work great along with each other.


DW__In your opinion, what makes fashion an amazing world ?
The art of creating beauty.


DW__Is your style personal or is it inspired by what is already out there ?
I try to make it as personal as possible. It should embrace well-matched attire, body- and mind-wise. Therefore it must be personal.
However, every day the way I visualize my style is influenced by whatever catches my perceptive attention. But isn't it what makes being inspired wonderful?


DW__Where do you get your ideas from ?
I think most of them come from the classics or fashion culture. By classics, I mean films, books, editorial photography icons. As for fashion culture, I find catwalks, magazines, street style blogs truly inspiring.


DW__What is your greatest inspiration ?
I draw the biggest inspiration from photography. It has led me to fashion culture and art admiration. I love exploring aesthetics and all the beauty of portraiture that photography brings along as a visual art.


DW__How important is it for you to look your best and why ?
To me, it's all about feeling well with myself. I feel well when I'm inspired (by photography, books, films, artists) and can saturate my look with that state. I choose an outfit that keeps me awake to everything that puts my thoughts on a right track. So it's pretty important.


DW__Who would qualify to be an icon ?
Someone who is talented, smart, art-sensitive and can formulate all of these values in his/her style.


DW__Your ideal female or male would have what style? what would he/she be wearing ?
In case of both male and female, classic, preppy, buttoned-up and vintage accents work excellent.


DW__A fashion advice ?
Stay unique, even when inspired by pop fashion trends.


DW__Websites? blogs? other links ?
You mean, mine?


DW__One last/final word ?
Dare to be rare
