So the team and I created this styling piece a few months ago. If i am honest, this video is one of my favourite for many reasons. However, I found myself holding back from sharing it with you some strange reason. I kind of felt like I needed to add something to the video not because it lacks something but to enhance what it is truly about.
The funny thing is that I couldn’t put put my finger on what I needed to add. It was only a few weeks ago that it donned on me that I should add a voiceover to the video. Yes thats it, a voiceover would enhance what I am trying to relay in the video. The only trouble now is that I have never done a voiceover before and this kind of petrified me. My fear was that it may not sound organic enough given that the video was created months ago and I am only now adding a voice to it. With a bit of encouragement from people around, I thought to myself I don’t need to be a Morgan Freeman or even a Sir David Attenborough to do this lol. So here is my first take on voiceovers.
Right, back to the concept of this look. The idea for this look as you would have already guessed was Continue reading Cuts for Him | My London, my style
So basically I had the pleasure of attending the first annual no resolution party by Scalpers at their Carnaby street flagship store last week. As a blogger, I regularly get invites to launch parties so much so that I almost overlooked this one.
The truth is when I read the email from the PR representing them, my first reaction was “not another one again”. I immediately reached for my diary to see how that week Continue reading Scalpers – New menswear player in town
I had the pleasure of working with one of my favourite streetwear brands about two months ago. This brand had been on my radar since January during LCM AW16. The truth is, I should have done a collaboration with them back then but time did not permit. So allow me to introduce you to Labrum.
Labrum is a modern menswear brand founded by a gentleman called Foday Dumbuya in 2014. It is a London based brand with all the pedigree and influence of this Continue reading Cuts for him + Labrum
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
