Contemporary Cool

Ok, so I know what you are already thinking; this is not the typical tailoring look that you would usually see me in, and you are probably thinking: “is he wearing a skirt?!” Whether it is a skirt or not, that does not matter. The thing is with personal style is that you can adapt and change it up whenever you want. I’ve always had a love for tailoring, but to be honest I’ve always had a much bigger love for menswear fashion, which allows for more deviation from the rules.

 What I am wearing in this look is pieces from a mixture of both contemporary and premium brands and designers. My stand out piece has to be the long sleeveless navy Jacket and navy trousers with zip detailing by South Korean designer D.Gnak. These are showpieces that came from a look straight from their SS16 collection, which is great as this was one of my favourite SS16 collections.

You can never go wrong with a leather biker jacket, so I decided to add a cool contemporary edge by wearing one by The Kooples. It’s one of my older pieces, but when I put it together with the long sleeveless jacket and trousers I knew this was the look I wanted to go for and I was also able to keep warm from a practical point of view.

When it comes to accessories, I like to style my look up to make my outfit stand out to make things more interesting. The hat I am wearing that features a ring detail was designed by Donya-Patrice and myself for D’lyle Treasure. Followed by black sunglasses by Black Eyewear, a grey alpaca scarf by Paul Smith and white leather creeper shoes by Underground Shoes. So these were the last additions to my outfit that create more of a modern, fashion forward feel.

Be sure to keep any eye on my future posts, as I will be introducing a slightly more modern take on my personal style.
