You think of modern art and leather upon stumbling across Phil B. Gomez’s work. He’s the epitome of raw style with no room for cowardice when it comes to fashion. I think with a track record of Vogue and Jil Sander, we can appreciate the level of expertise that is bestowed upon Lots of Style. He was also Head Stylist at Phoenix Fashion Week 2009 before leaping onto the fashion scene in New York, which was significantly influential to his career as a stylist. Daphne Guinness won’t get a chance to hire Phil, now that I’ve discovered him.
Phil’s work is very much a contemporary celebration of the human form and he amazingly uses clothes to create a sense of energy in a look. Whether it be with a woman or a man, their characteristics are amplified and there’s a presence, I can’t help but notice, of a certain dark twist in his work which never fails to compliment.
When asked what he’s inspired by, he says “Everything, but most importantly I get inspired by the energy that surrounds me.” It makes sense when he puts it that way, with the “eclectic” nature of his work and the ability to tailor his own taste into everything he does. With Phil B. Gomez, there’s no such thing as a wardrobe malfunction.
