We think it’s time to give recognition to the stylish men on Chictopia who impress. When it comes to rocking both a classic luxe attire and the casual cool, look no further for Eros Buzza of Hermes Is My Dad. The sneaker loving fella certainly knows how to keep his readers coming back for more, showcasing his photography skills and invariably stylish outfits. Let’s get to know Eros as he discusses how he’s come up with such a unique name and other tidbits in today’s interview!
The first thing I look for in an outfit is… shoes.
They’re my favorite garment and I love sneakers.
In the future, I hope to work… in fashion.
I still don’t know exactly, but I’m studying fashion-management at the moment. So let’s see what the future brings.
My fashion inspiration comes from… many things.
Hip hop, rap, life, magazines, and some brands.
I started my fashion blog… out of boredom one day.
So it was last April, and I was on vacation. I was bored one day, so I browsed through blogs and decided to create my own, “Hermes Is My Dad.” In Greek mythology, which I’m not really interested in, Hermes was one of the 12 Olympic gods and his son was called Eros. Also, Hermes is a famous brand so I thought it was a cool name for my blog. Really, I had no other good ideas for the name, and honestly, I didn’t like the name after 3 months or so. But it was just online and it’s always bad to change it when you’ve already established an online presence.
Being a male style icon, I hope to… inspire.
Style Icon, haha. Okay yes, so if people like my style, I hope they can get some inspiration of course.
Living in Munich, Germany has not really influenced my style
Munich hasn’t really influenced me. However, I am always inspired by music, life, and the Internet.
I would never wear… creepers.
I would never wear creepers because I just hate them.
This movie describes my style… Stomp tha Yard.
Chris Brown is in the movie and I was always inspired by hip hop/rap music and style. Sometimes, if I’m in the mood, I’d wear something different from what I usually wear.
I have a few collaborations with… a few brands.
I’m working with some brands at the moment for the blog, and of course it would be awesome to work with more and bigger ones. I’m also thinking about joining a fashion magazine where bloggers post. In a few months I have to decide what I’m doing after my studies. Maybe I’ll go somewhere abroad.
The upcoming trend for guys and girls is… hip hop.
I’m not really into trends. But I like how rappers, ASAP Rocky and Kanye West incorporate hip hop into fashion as trend.
