In true Gemini form, Christopher is as serious as he is lighthearted, always needing to stand out from the crowd visually but tastefully. On the one hand, he is calm, collected and classic, in his golden silk Brooks Brothers suspenders, high-waisted khakis and spectacles. On the other hand, he is frenzied and emotional, pushing boundaries in his African multicolor cap, floral tie used as a bow, and oversized Retro Super Future frames. Christopher particularly loves the details that accessories provide and considers them to be self-defining, like the unusual combination of a rosary with an anchor that a friend brought back from Colombia. He sees it as symbolic of the hypocrisy of people’s need to fit into organized groups that preach “acceptance,” but lack free thinking. It’s clear that rigid belief systems don’t affect Christopher or his creative expression, as few men today could wear a wreath on their head with as much poise and confidence as he does. The Roman reference is inspiring, and I could see it adding a lot of personal character to a gray flannel suit. Christopher is attracted to wearing hats for their ability to stand out. That love, combined with his unusually deep, imaginative relationship with his business partner, Laurel St. Romain, gave birth to their company of one of a kind hats, Ilovefactorybk. One would look sedate in a breton tee, white sneakers and navy madras pants, but Christopher makes it humorous when he adds a ’50s straw handbag that June Cleaver might carry with a a skull necklace and flip-top shades with tortoiseshell chain. With this outfit, the vintage straw hat combined with paisley is made timeless and modern, as only someone as earnest and visionary as Christopher can do.
