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.

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

Evolution Man

The other day, a friend of mine asked me how I take care of my skin. Skin care is an everyday routine. It takes place two times in the day: in the morning and in the evening.

       

It starts of with washing your face and body and then you wipe gently. Then, it is time to moisturize. I start with my eyes and a revitalizing gel so that I can get rid of my puffiness and dark circles, that are created due to the fact that I work a lot in front of a computer and I don’t sleep a lot. Then, I moisturize the rest of my face and neck and I prefer a product with matte finish, so that I look natural, and has SPF so that I can prevent my face from the sun. It is important to use SPF even in Winter, because the sun is there even if we do not see it. Next, is my lip care. I use a lip balm for that.

SHY BOY

Take Saint Laurent's bomber jacket – it's cool and slick, but get up close and personal, and you find it's made of exquisitely satin. Or Maison Martin Margiela's leather oxford shoes – they're an essential piece for every man.

Topman at Nordstrom

image

               Spring is finally here. The weather is just getting better and better. There are colors in nature and it is the time of the year that we transition from our winter wardrobes to our summer ones. Fashion becomes brighter and for me it is just another excuse to buy more clothes, shoes and accessories.

       

Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to start searching for my new obsessions. As it is mentioned in their site: “Fashion changes. Shopping changes. Their commitment to happy costumers doesn’t.”, that’s why I like Nordstrom. They see fashion as a business of optimism and that is the spirit that you get. Optimism that emanates from experience of helping their customers possess style and not just buy fashion. Nordstrom tries and gives you a really pleasant experience in shopping either it is through going to one of their stores or by paying a visit at their online site or their mobile application.

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.
