Miles Davis Is Hell-Bent For Leather (The Hernando Reinoso Connection)

rt6davis_1

I’m Learning To Share! put together a terrific post about an article from the March 1970 issue of Show magazine. It focuses on a few L.A. and NYC fashion designers known for outfitting some of the more flamboyant pop stars of the day. There are a lot of great photos to check out – especially Miles Davis, of course.

“Miles Davis and others knew where to find clothier Hernando Reinoso, but looking online these days there seems to be only a very few memories of his leather shop located on Christopher Street in New York City’s West Village.”

Blurb on the photograph:

“I really dig Hernando’s clothes ’cause you don’t feel like you have anything on… I mean everything he makes me immediately becomes a part of me as soon as I put it on… now that’s what clothes are meant to be.” – Miles Davis

  1. This is funny, especially since my uncle’s only assistants were my mother,Dimitri and myself. My mother and her brother made the clothes in the above referenced photo.
