Robert Rabensteiner was taught to tie a bowtie at the tender
age of 5 by his father, his most important accessory in his
wardrobe is a men's scarf.
I can do many things with a scarf, both on men and women.
I can use it as a belt, like a bowtie, like a classic scarf, I can
even make it look like a rock n' roll scarf. I even like to use
them in a practical way, if I need to fix a dress or jacket
on a fashion shoot, as we know everybody uses pins and tape
but I don't use them, I use a scarf instead.
I have huge rooms in my house where everything is divided.
I have a section for scarves, tuxedo shirts, tee-shirts of different
colours, different levels, different silhouettes, different suits
The clothes he keeps in his archive is his passion.
Robert Rabensteiner the creative brain behind L'uomo Vogue
continues to be one of the most stylish men in the world......
