Cultured in Culture is a short series I started last year when I visited Freetown, Sierra Leone. In all honesty, it was meant to be a one-off piece that turned into a mini-series. I would encourage you to catch up on the last two here and here.
As a stylist, I have always tried to infuse different cultures into how I put an outfit together. Cultured in Culture also borrows heavily from places and the people in those places. I mean, culture is mostly about people right?
For someone who was born into one culture and partly raised in another, I have always been intrigued by other people’s way of life. I remember watching action movies based on or set in Thailand such as Kickboxer, Above the law, Police story and much more like them. I can unequivocally say now that I had no business watching those movies at that age. More recent movies such as Bangkok dangerous and the cult-classic Ong-Bak all let my imagination run wild.
So as mentioned in my previous article, I should have shared these with you a few weeks ago. However, better late than never. So without further ado, here are some of my favorites shows from LFWM AW18.
Wood Wood is a contemporary fashion and lifestyle brand based in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was founded in 2002 which makes it the oldest clothing brand in this article.
LFWM AW18 is gone but it seems like I have a hangover from it. I am still putting together some of the photos taken from some of the spectacular shows of the season. Images I should have shared with you weeks ago but life has its own plans, ha.
London Fashion Week Men’s AW18 has been one of the highlights of the past 6 months for me. Unfortunately, I always leave applying for my press pass for the 11th hour and get stressed on the first day trying to get it printed. But apart from the press pass debacle, I am very pleased with how AW18 turned out. As a stylist and influencer, it was a pleasure to see the likes of Vogue, Esquire, GQ and many more featuring me as one of the best-dressed men of the season. However, the one thing that made all the effort of getting up on a Saturday and Sunday morning to head out in the cold was the chance to hang out and catch up with fellow bloggers. Some of these bloggers live outside London and so the only opportunity to see them is during London Fashion Week Men’s. Between catching up with old friends and making new ones, LFWM is the perfect place and time to spot trends or even be part of trendsetting where street style is concerned.
