Standing 6-foot-4 and with waist-length raven hair, anonymity has never really been on the cards for the 31-year-old British artist Daniel Lismore. Not that he’d have it any other way. Rather than trying to fit in as a U.K. teenager in the conformist Midlands, Lismore took style cues from David Bowie and Marilyn Manson, evolving his own offbeat dressing-up box aesthetic. What began as an exotic assemblage of global, cultural, and historical influences has transformed into inspired, regal looks that have earned him a reputation as the most flamboyant dresser in England, and caught the eye of brands like H&M, for whom he fronted the Close the Loop sustainability in fashion campaign.
