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.

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.

A double-breasted Burberry London coat in hard-wearing cotton-gabardine is a sartorial classic. With a sharp cut and leather buckles, this piece looks as smart now as it did when Burberry first started producing trenches over 100 years ago. Tie the belt behind the back for a nonchalant air.
Available online on MrPorter.com and Burberry.com.

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.

Rethink Your Skin Care

image

Eating a balanced diet is a sure way to maintain good health. ‘Your skin should benefit, too,’ says Kate Forbes, head of research and development at Aesop, the Melbourne-based skincare brand. ‘The topical application of preparations that deliver vitamins directly to the skin can offer additional benefits that can minimise the effects of daily environmental damage and pollution.’ For combination skin, Forbes prescribes Aesop B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel, which contains vitamins B and C, witch hazel to soothe and hydrate blemish-prone skin, and Aesop Damascan Rose Facial Treatment, which delivers doses of vitamins E and A to revitalise skin after a season of central heating and harsh weather.

You can shop the Aesop products online from MRPORTER.com and Net-a-Porter.com

One Suit - Six Outfits

image

                  Twenty-first century man is so busy and has to be in many places without having time to change outfits. He constantly has to look sharp and well-put-together. This is an everyday challenge that men face and we will try in this article.

       

First of all though, let’s meet the two men that will help us. The first one is Ryder and the other one is Clément. Ryder is an economical analyst. His style is preppy and his favorite color is navy. He loves to be sharp and ready for whatever comes in his way. Clément is a senior fashion editor for a fashion magazine. He loves experimenting with his style and his favorite color is black. He loves black and white when he is dressing himself just because he sees so much color in his career. Though, he introduces some color through accessories.

Secondly, let’s see what piece of clothing we are going to see them wearing through their day. Of course, it is a black skinny suit, as it is very classic and extremely versatile. The black skinny fit blazer and trousers that we see here is by Topman, available at Nordstrom. I decided to go with this partnership just because there is a huge amount of different style clothes and they are affordable as much as they are qualitative.

Four Outfit Ideas from Nordstrom and Façonnable

image

                   Christmas season is upon us and with that comes lots of events and festivities. We are going to look at outfits perfect for home parties to downtown events. It’s really the time of year when our wardrobes have to work very hard. I’m going to show you some outfit ideas, with a little help from Nordstrom and Façonnable that gonna help you pass this season with ease, as there is a huge collection of wardrobe staples that can be translated in any style with the right styling.


Our first stop is Ambrogio. Ambrogio has to attend a festive dinner party with his family at home this Christmas. He wants to be chic and modern while remaining casual and comfortable, so that he is gonna be able to eat as much as he wants from the Christmas treats, and it’s gonna probably be a lot.
He probably will wear a pair of straight leg jeans so that he is comfortable and be able to eat a lot because it is stretchy. A pair of jeans is also great as it can totally work as a blank canvas. He could pair his jeans with a regular fit sport denim shirt and a red regular fit crewneck sweatshirt. This way he can show his modern approach with a denim on denim look while remaining festive and really casual with the red sweatshirt. He could finish his outfit with a lambskin bomber jacket in black and a pair of black leather Chelsea boots, just to add some “smart” edge.
