Hello everyone. It has been over three weeks since i posted anything at all. I was away on holiday but hope to share with you some of the things i got up to. I am happy to be back and look forward to publishing more articles and work with you all.
To kick things off, here are some of the photos i took at the London Fashion Weekend SS17. I was delighted to get a special invite by Canon UK whom i have worked with before. I must say it is always a pleasure to work with Canon and here is to many more in the future.
A Khaki suit is one of the best investments a man can ever make for the summer season. I know we are almost at the end of the summer now but bear with me as this might be handy for next season. Who knows, you might even get a good bargain on a similar suit in the sale to stock up for next summer.
My Khaki suit turned out to be an unexpected hit for this summer as I try to look smart but relaxed at the same time. The truth is I only bought myself one by chance as i walked into a Paul Smith discount store in July looking for a pair of shoes. I came out of that store 30 minutes later with a pair of brogues and a new suit not realising that the suit was going to be a hit.
I think it is fair to say that I haven’t been this excited about grooming and perfumes in a while. On Wednesday the 17th of August, I was invited to the Tom Ford beauty product launch for the Holiday 2016 collection which took place at the Arts club in London.
As the title indicates, I have never before owned an all white suit or anything close. I have always been of the mind set that a white suit is hard work to maintain and purely seasonal. I can literally think of less than a handful of occasions where I can boldly wear one to.
Before I say a word, I want you all to know that working with Tom Ford beauty has been fun and insightful. From breakfast meetings to photo shoot, there has not been a single dull moment.
Tom Ford as you may all know is one of the most recognisable names in the fashion and beauty business. The company prides itself in the quality of its products combined with beautiful craftsmanship resulting in a luxury brand. It is a wonder how Tom Ford has become such a great household name in a relatively short period since its inception in 2005. I mean the company is barely 20 years old but yet commands a good chunk of the luxury market.
I can only put this success down to the great work ethos and vision of the man at the helm, Mr Tom Ford. Of course Mr Tom Ford did not just pop out of the woodwork to create this brand but have Continue reading Tom Ford beauty + Cuts for Him→
For those in England, the weather has been kind to us in the past few days. Some might even add that it has been too kind as garments and layers are falling off due to the “excessive” heat. I try not to complain as I know I’d rather this hot weather any day to a rainy or snowy one. Truth be told, its easier to keep warm than to cool down but like I said, give me a hot day over a cold one any time. As Brits, our conversations are never a few sentences away from talking about the weather. Its like we just love to talk about the weather. It is a conversation starter and I can see why most people would use it as an ice breaker. Everyone can relate to the conditions of the weather. Anyway enough about the weather already.
The reason for this post is to show you my ultimate summer, or should I say hot weather suit. Summers in England are no guarantee for hot weather as you may know. So really and truly, I should change the title of the post from “summer suit” to “hot weather suit” right? Nah I think I will leave it as it is. Continue reading The ultimate summer suit→
If there is one summer social event most bloggers want to be at then it is the Mr Porter Summer Social. I have heard of similar Mr Porter events before but never had the opportunity to at one until the very last day of London Collections: Men.
The Mr Porter social was just what the Dr prescribed after four days of running to shows and navigating photographers keen to snap away at anyone who looks wired enough. Seems like the more wired one look these days the more attention you command. Nothing to do with practicality and sensible clothing anymore but hey that is a topic for another day.
When i place my name on the waiting list for a chance to get a ticket for Canon’s InstaMeet I honestly did not think I was going to get one. Canon InstaMeet events are highly sought as they are as exclusive as they come.
When I got an email a few days later confirming my place at their latest gig, i was over the moon. I literally had to cancel plans I had that evening to make sure I was there.
As expected, the event was a massive success. We were first of all treated to some drinks and snacks which i must say I was not able to take full advantage of as I had just had a heavy late lunch before I got to Somerset house where the event was held.
For the secret gig, three bands were lined up with the first to perform being Liskka, the second The Bloom, and lastly Bent Ref.
At the end of concert we were ushered in to view the amazing exhibition celebrating the life of Stanley Kubrick.
Here are a few of the photos I took. I hope you like them. Tell me what you think in the comment section below.
A massive thank you to Canon UK for organising such a great event.
The first T.M. Lewin store opened in Jermyn street in 1898. Yes, that’s like 118 years ago when T.M. Lewin opened it doors to the public. I couldn’t believe it when I found out through Louis the origins and history of this noble brand. Louis was the host of this exclusive in-store styling session where I was one of only five bloggers invited.
I was made to understand that some of the fabric used by T.M. lewin is made exclusively by a company in Scotland by invitation only. I have to admit that I was amazed at what I refer to as the rich history of this high street store. Continue reading T.M. Lewin – Heritage is the word→
About a month ago, I went to a cover reveal for a magazine called Blogosphere which I was featured in. Blogosphere is an internationally distributed publication written by bloggers for bloggers. In fact, this was my very first feature in a magazine and as it happens, my first cover reveal party. I was quite chuffed when I received an email from the Editor-In-Chief herself Alice Audley inviting me to the party. Even thought I was featured in it, I did not know what to expect in the content of the magazine or the format of the party.
Before I go any further, I have a massive confession to make. Prior to my feature, I had never bought blogosphere or indeed read to back to back. Awkward right? Wait till you hear the rest of the confession. I actually do not like reading at all and would do anything I can to avoid it. As a blogger and Continue reading Blogosphere cover reveal – Bloggers’ mag→
