Now figure skating world is in a calm before the storm – Russian and Japanese Nationals A perfect time to discuss some fashion)
Fashion results of men’s short program you can see her: Grand-Prix Final 2016: men’s short program fashion review
Let’s see who was the most stylish in the free program.
I can already see some Japanese fans under my windows, holding their posters “You understand nothing in beautiful costumes!”. :) Ah, we definitely have a completely different tastes and different vision of figure skating fashion. Yuzuru, you’re a great skater, great jumper, great competititor. Sorry, but it’s difficult for me to take you and your programs seriously when I see all this ruffles. For me it’s a fashion crime. Oh, and this flгuttering something on his shoulder….this water plant is so distracting! The only thing I like about this costume is combination of green and blue.
Yeah I hate plushy pants…..but surprisingly I don’t want to burn this costume immediately) So, it’s already a progress) Actually it’s pretty nice and in style of the program. I may not like the plushy pants and nude illusion on the back, but I really like the bolero with beautiful finishing. The finishing looks like fire. I think he should keep this short jacket and make a Don Quixote program next season)
I like the simplicity of Adam’s costumes. Black and white combination is a timeless classic. I also like that such simple and not bright costume don’t distract from his program and skating. Adam is in great shape, so he totally can wear such tight translucent long sleeve t-shirt. I like the idea of slight feathery applique and probably much finishing would be too much for the melancholic mood of the program……but I still have a feeling that his costume lacks something.
I’m glad, Patrick, that you’re no longer wears my sweater as your costume for competitions and actually got a new one)
Anyway it suits me better :)
Now I’m trying to figure out whether I like this new costume or not. I have mixed feelings…..As always well fitted trousers, I like that they are dark blue and not usual black. I also like the combination of blue-grey and vinous. Patrick is also in great shape, so tight long sleeve t-shirt is a great choice) But I don’t like the shape of an hombre effect! It looks like someone spilled red wine all over his blue sweater) Or some weird associations with blood…..Ok keep this sweater and do a program for exhibitions to Interview with a vampire)
Thank you Javi for looking like a real man! No ruffles, no laces, no guipure and thank goodness no Elvis costume!) I think that ready to wear / such casual style suits Fernandez the most. He’s a handsome guy, so as a viewer I don’t want to be distracted by costume) And yes, I love black shirts, that’s why I don’t really like the pink section. But at the same time it gives some retro notes to his image. Another good news, this time trousers were well fitted, so keep the pattern for your future costumes.
Oh, and as a bonus another great male costume from Javi:
You may be surprised, that being a fan of simple and looking like a real clothes costumes, I chose Nathan Chen as my winner. Well, I always appreciate sophisticated thematical / historical costumes. Especially when they are well-sewn. Red and golden is quite a winning color combination) Nathan’s costume has so many small details and I really want to take a closer look at them. Great imitation of iron belt and bracelets. I like how they showed the multilayered character and richness of the costume. I think it’s a fabulous outfit, lots of work was done and it definitely helps to create a great impression from the program!
