Lenny Kravitz attended an event on 22nd September 2014 in New York City to celebrate him being on the cover of the latest issue of DuJour Magazine. Lenny Kravitz wore a black and red tartan suit jacket with black satin lapel, over a checked silk shirt, black leather trousers and beige suede boots, all from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane.

Had this event been in London, the tabloids would have a field day about his choice of the tartan blazer and his opinions on the Scottish referendum. Or was that his transatlantic message? Interesting tartan blazer which is kept up to date with the shiny contrasting cuffs and collar. I am however a little on the fence about this look. I like my tartan to be avant garde-ish, or to have some shocking qualities, along the styles of McQueen or Westwood. This feels too proper and pretty, almost veering on costume-y. Does Lenny Kravitz's tartan look do it for you?
