Matt Styles




"I believe fashion is rooted in obsession + what I'm currently obsessed with is bobby pinning GAUDY gold necklaces in my hair + running around town like a princess witch! was inspired by GAGA @ the Guggenheim, then it reminded me of Gwen's bindi + then I saw a friend of mine wearing one + I WAS HOOKED. I [heart] that fashion can be so I-M-M-E-D-I-A-T-E."

"From 60's prep to 90's grunge / Angora to Polyester / You fit me better than my favorite fuzzy sweater"

"Robyn from Call Your Girlfriend music video / Lana in H&M / Black sweater by New Wave Natives (Etsy) / Maroon sweater by Gosha Rubchinskiy"

From now on Chicago Looks is proud to present a collaboration with some of the city's most stylish inhabitants, who will be sharing their views on all things aesthetic.

This first fabulous post was artfully crafted by Matt Kasin, aka The Gaudy God. He is a fashion designer, filmmaker and stylist with a self-described "expensive bad taste". He is inspired by pop culture, John Waters, Versace and Italian horror films. He believes in fashion as a religion and salvation from the everyday mundane. He owns two online clothing stores filled with original and vintage garments: Gaudy God and a 90s concept store inspired by Clueless called THE MALL.



LOVE MATTIE!
