Interior designer MICHAEL AIDUSS takes on corduroy, the fabric of kings.
There’s a lot to be said for the interplay of fashion and interior design, according to Michael Aiduss. “It’s about studying the personality of the person and then approaching the interior the way you’re putting an outfit together,” he says, “exploring what looks good on a client and what kind of rooms they would feel amazing in.” When it comes to corduroy, he prefers his fit slim and his wale super skinny, but just like a perfect bedroom layout, one’s ideal corduroy is a matter of individual taste. Luckily, this season provides options for every guy, from vintage-feeling wide-ribbed pleated pants to sophisticated fine-wale jackets, all in a range of shades, including royal blue, deep chocolate and rich burgundy.
