Alexi Lubomirski is a photographer you could easily mistake for a model — one cast in a fashion spread called “How to Achieve Timeless Elegance in a Blue Shirt and Jeans.” Born in England and raised in France and Botswana, he’s worldly enough to pull off undoing that third shirt button.
“My mother told me when I was about 12 that I should wear blue because I’ve got blue eyes. It stuck. Every time we watched old movies together, she would point out to me who was dressed well and who wasn’t. So all my icons are the old guys: Paul Newman. Robert Redford in Three Days of the Condor. I remember watching that and stealing his style. Basically, it’s a uniform: the blue shirt, the jeans, the Indiana Jones–style boots. When I started working for Mario [Testino], I was a student from a tiny town in England where everybody wore exactly the same thing — hooded tops and baggy trousers — but I love things that are superfitted. And like I said, I pretty much wear the same stuff all the time.”
