From peasant to stylish hat & everything in-between, a Beret’s journey | Cuts for Him

Having worked with Labrum London on a couple of occasions before, this show was one I most looked forward to for many reasons. One of these reasons was the fact that Continue reading Labrum’s Freetown collection at LFWM AW18 | Cuts for Him

London Fashion Week Men’s Street style | Cuts for Him

So London Fashion Week Men’s AW18 has come and gone. It has been an incredible event for me personally.
