James Dean. He was 24. His very brief career, violent death and highly publicized funeral turned him into a timeless cultobject. I don’t know about you guys, but for me James Dean is an icon in many ways. Timeless, tough and fashionable. He had a sense of fashion that I still admire. He looks good, no matter what he wears. That, for me, is what fashion is all about: a cool guy who doesn’t give a shit.
