I’ve  been wanting to feature Jimi Hendrix as a style icon for months now, but didn’t want to do it until I felt I had a sufficient amount of rare and colored photographs (not easy to come by a la internet). But at last I’ve accumulated and created a collage worthy of posting and just in time for music festival season no less!

Jimi Hendrix’s wardrobe has to be among the top five wardrobes I’d like to raid. The jackets, the hats, the belts, the VESTS!, the bell bottoms, the jewelzzz, holy mackerel! I’d love to know how long it took him to get dressed for the day. Was it one of those situations where he huffed and puffed in front of the mirror or was it just a grab and go type of thing? Either way, there isn’t an outfit I found where he didn’t look awesome and he definitely makes me feel better about my extensive jacket collection. I mean really, is it possible to ever have enough jackets?! I think not. Now I just have to get my hands on one of those military/Sgt. Pepper jackets. Balmain S/S 2009, I’m looking at you.
