FINAEST

Fashion industry is fast evolving and only a few stand the test of time. On Finaest (one of my most recent findings) there is an amazing selection of some historic Italian Fashion brands with prestige and experience. Moreover, on Finaest there is a whole new world of experiences you can have. My absolutely favorite part of it is the “behind the scenes” experience. In it you can see how a product is created, the philosophy and the culture behind a design along with the showcase of the craftsmanship of true artisans.

A dark velvet blazer is always an elegant option for the evening.  The velvet blazer is just as versatile as a standard equivalent, meaning it shouldn’t be confined to the party season or the boardroom but should be let out to play on the weekends and on nights out too.
Whether it’s for a day in the office, a black tie event or the festive party season, the velvet blazer should always be given due consideration. It looks just as good when worn with the full sartorial effort as with a pair of jeans.

WOODCHUCK

Every Sunday this summer, my friends and I go out to the woods (well the park) for a walk. Everything is so peaceful there. The city’s noises seem to disappear and all you can hear is nature’s call. You can hear the birds’ song, the sound of the water, even your walk. We are usually having a picnic on a tree branch. It’s really a moment I enjoy and I wish I could take it with me for the whole week. I thought I could take a little piece of wood from the tree but thank God there’s Woodchuck.

The perfect white blazer is a necessary investment. Make a contemporary impression through summer by going for head-to-heel white or temper the effect with navy trousers.

Zabattigli Di Capri Indigo Collection

image

As you’ve probably noticed, I love to wear espadrilles, especially if they are made of precious materials like velvet or silk. Basically all my espadrilles are from Zabattigli Di Capri (I own nine pairs). They’re perfect for summer and now their dedicated men’s range is expanding with the addition of new materials like silk or coated cotton.

       

Zabattigli are handmade in the characteristic village of Anacapri, Italy, traditionally the island’s centre of artisanship. They are created by local artisans with their distinctive craftsmanship. The use of prime quality materials and the sole of the shoe made of jute with no rubber, guarantee that feet transpire as well as giving them a soft sensation.

The new Indigo collection is made to seduce. Charming with a contemporary touch, this collection is all about an icon of Capri refining its tradition of understated elegance. Check out the Classic and the City collection.

8 Grooming Products Every Man Needs This Summer

Men’s fashion month for Spring/Summer 2015 is over and I am decoding all the new trends to come. New fashion pieces are something that gets me so excited for, but then there’s street style. Street style for me is all about self-expression and this fashion month was not an exception for great looks. What I liked the most on all these fashion-forward and ever stylish men, was not their clothing though. It was the way their hair and facial hair were taken care of.

Let’s Play Shadows

image

            Black and white, dark and light – opposites attract to make the most powerful unisons. This season’s eveningwear comes out of the twilight zone and into the obverse, where subtle shadow-play and striking embellishments create the most lasting impressions.

Zuhair Murad is the master of decadent illusion, his extraordinary gowns scintillating through the night. An absence of colour only serves to augment the allure, and a beautifully-cut tuxedo is the only accessory she needs.

       
       

He wears his black tie like it stands apart from him – flickers of embellishment on a DSquared2 jacket lend levity, whilst the chunky workman’s shoes he wears ground him firmly in reality.

       
       

When she glimmers, he’s comfortable in her backdrop, and when he shines, she only serves to highlight his silhouette. Just like black and white, they always look better together.
