Tod’s at MR PORTER

image

Learning fashion history is as important as to know what is new now and what your style is, so we will add some history notes today. Driving shoes. Driving shoes grew in popularity through the last half of the twentieth century due to their comfort and elegant style. They were created for the gentlemen who wanted something easier on driving, more flexible and soft and since then they have been everywhere.


“The new fashion designer of Tod’s, Alessandra Facchinetti, gave a new meaning to casual chic: simple, beautiful, easy to wear and a little bit eccentric to the details. In this outfit everything is tempting as well easy to be combined with what we already have in our wardrobes.”, I read somewhere.
Inspiration and needs are created from everything and really anything. What do I need now? But of course, a new pair of comfortable shoes in a vibrant color as Spring is here. And from all the above I thought that Tod’s would be a great choice.

Tod’s is an Italian family-run business which was established in the early 1900s. It is renowned for its refined craftsmanship which is put in every single design. Every design is handmade using both traditional and modern techniques so that they can ensure that the renowned high standards are upheld.

Wearing a denim shirt with jeans has become quite trendy lately. The double-denim look used to be the fashion faux pas that created the dad-look mentioned earlier. Now, fashion-forward people have made it work.

TOY BOY by LuisaViaRoma

Spring is on the horizon and it’s action-packed with a new collection of toy boys in strong graphics and fearlessly bold colors. Blocked, splattered, dotted or striped- the toy boy charges up with Jil Sander’s neon jacquards and Burberry’s pantone rainbow. 

He’s every girl’s dream man and he’s suited up for business. Stoic in his Dolce & Gabbana bow tie and Marni sunglasses, you’ll never see him waver. He’s a toy boy- king of the playground- and he’s winning our hearts.

Cavalier Bleu Paris

The collections of Cavalier Bleu are entirely imagined and conceived in Paris. More than a choice, it is a philosophy: the will to perpetuate a know-how and a faultless quality, but also an incomparable genuiness and boldness.


It was in Paris, in 1858, that was held the first catwalk show in the world. A century and a half later, the city has kept alive its attraction and remains the unassailable bastion of fashion. Paris is rooted in a unique heritage with a great taste and an almost obsessive search of elegance. At the same time, there is a constant desire to shake up the borders, not to dwell in the past, but to bring a legacy and be future-oriented. The creation in Paris, is to will to transform the past into an idea of today’s ​​chic, to be part of this era.
This state of mind is obviously due to the Parisien themselves. This is to distinguish themselves, to stand out, that they express an identity through clothing. They shape their daily allure, make ​​sure to be elegant and refined for any occasion. They follow their instinct and dress with sophistication. The garment expresses their feelings and well-being, their audacity, freedom … It is the art of an apparent simplicity, but not a single detail is actually improvised.

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.

Dutch Design Beads Bracelets

image

                     Last weekend, I decided that I needed a little change and for that I traveled back to my hometown. I was back in nature and I had the time to meet my family. As always I paid a visit to my grandmother and of course she was creating something. She was making an embroidery. It was so amazing and the beading was exquisite. But now I am back in the city, ready for new adventures. I was searching the web earlier today for some accessories for me, when I found Dutch Design Beads. Their motto is “Bead the ordinary” and it reminded me of my grandma, so I decided that I should give it a look.

Ron Dorff - Modern and Sharp Sportswear

               New year is here for a month already and it is time to start making our resolutions come true, if we have not started yet. When it comes to me, I like taking baby steps to achieve my new goals. One of them is to go to the gym or try something active, something that will keep me in shape but also help me improve it. So with that being said, I have to tell you that I will start this resolution with nothing else than finding some great gym pieces that could also translate to my everyday life. Gym clothing is just not my thing, but another resolution of mine for this year is to experiment more with my style, so I am going to give it a try. As always, I started my research online as I do not have enough time to go shopping and moreover I do not know many sports brands, as I do not want something too sporty. I tried so much to find something that would suit me, but I was always going for the same thing sportswear but in a very designer way and that was not what I was going for. Finally, I discovered a brand that could work with my style but also have a really sports background. I found Ron Dorff.
