New York Knicks starting player Tyson Chandler, one of our 50 Most Stylish New Yorkers Right Now, proclaimed his love for capes in an interview with WWD today.
“Probably the most dramatic pieces in my wardrobe would be capes,” the center reportedly said. “I wouldn’t consider myself Goth, but I love Gothic pieces,” he continued.
The article describes Chandler's off-the-court demeanor as an "art-loving hipster with a beard and a passion for photography and friends." No stranger to style, Chandler probably feels comfortable exploring different types of fashions with teammates like Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony also making regular appearances at fashion shows and stylish ceremonies like the Met Gala.
Chander likes that New York has a lot of different types of clothes for sale, whether it's dark designers or high-end tailoring. “When I’m in other cities, you can’t just pop up at Rick Owens….You can’t just go down to Tom Ford,” he said. [WWD]
