T Magazine's Kunst Kick: Egon Schiele As A Style Icon

T Magazine's Men's Fashion Spring '09 issue was full of fresh new looks, except for one spread, which harked back to the turn of the 20th century. Eric Nehr's "Artistic License" story served as an homage to Expressionist provocateur Egon Schiele, the Austrian painter who was famously risqué with his erotic portrayal of models (and was thusly arrested for being pornographic). No, the spread is not a sexytimes male exposé, so to speak, but it does pay tribute—beautifully—to Schiele's characteristic angular poses that alluringly and self-consciously contort the body. Titillating art and stylish duds never go out of style—how did no one reference this mann before? (T)
