Essentials: Eugene Tong

By //Fashion

While it seems a pronounced trend today, Eugene Tong’s innovative manner of dress in cut & sew menswear mixed with streetwear and high fashion was one of the first examples to polarize high against low. Admired by such photographers as Tommy Ton and Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist, Tong’s signature look is one that exudes a similar level of taste and consideration to his selection for this edition of HYPEBEAST Essentials. Style director for Condé Nast-owned Details Magazine, where the Taiwanese-born creative has held various positions over his career, Tong has also received acclaim for providing styling cues for New York label Public School. For a self-proclaimed shoe enthusiast, we did notice the absence of any form of footwear, yet Eugene did present a range of distinguished pieces from Dunhill, Louis Vuitton and Rolex, while locking down elements of sensibility with a basic Bread & Boxers T-shirt and a clean Public School cap.
