Hey! Guys I’m just reminding you its Awards Season with Fashion Week just around the corner I bet you’re really excited just as I am to attend any of the private events which are often very exclusive by invitation only. I’ve just returned recently from a long weekend in Italy to attend Men’s Fashion Week in Milan so it feels great to be back and catch up on the latest. Let’s begin with everyone’s favourite topic who’s wearing what to the EE Rising Star Bafta Award’s 2020 and which event’s are happening before the Awards Night this weekend.

Various Lifestyle Brand’s were also known to have hosted their own private soirees such as Chanel, Atelier Swarovski, Dunhill London and more. Most, importantly what did I get up to Pre-Bafta Awards About Town this Week as I had the pleasure of attending an Exclusive invitation with Perrier Jouet Champagne x Don’t Die Wondering at Ella Canta Park Lane.

But, before telling you about what I wore to the event I just thought I’d mention that Don’t Die Wondering is an exclusive member’s club for high net worths and influencers in the luxury, music, film, art and fashion industries.

The exclusive service is available by application only and includes the crème de la crème of Hollywood A-list, industry veterans and highly acclaimed influencers as member’s. Lucky for me I got insider access to experience it firsthand and had the most wonderful time as it was my first Pre-Bafta bash this season as a style insider and I’m sure it won’t be my last the perks of being an influencer certainly has it’s advantages.

Especially when attending event’s what you wear on the Red Carpet is crucial to expressing your own style and confidence but sometimes you’re often found with a challenge with what options to wear. So, here’s my opinion on Menswear Style Pre-Bafta Style vs the Actual Awards night.

Firstly, Black Tie does not have to mean a full tuxedo and bow tie, that’s for Awards night, but for a Pre-Bafta Dinner for instance Chanel some male Celebrities wore a classic white dress shirt and black neck tie which has been seen spotted on George Clooney, Jude Law etc looks more relaxed but still sartorially sharp and edgy vs traditional black tie. That’s what kind of look I went for during the other night in a Polo Ralph Lauren White Dress Shirt, Black Silk Gucci Neck tie, formal Blazer and non matching skinny trousers by Zara Man and Shoes H&M. Sometimes a bit of contrast in your evening attire can make things looks overall flawless. Let me know your thoughts on this look.

FIRENZE & PRATO STYLE DIARY – WHAT I PACKED FOR A TWO DAY CITY BREAK with ART HOTEL MUSEO

WHAT I WORE: STREET STYLE FIRENZE 'PITTI IMMAGINE UOMO 97'

During the first day of our press trip my outfit for day one consisted being dressed in all monochrome which is usually my signature style day to day. In true Florentine style in homage to Pitti Uomo 97 I opted for a statement tailored winter coat made from the finest Italian fabric.

I felt I blended right in doing street style pictures to capture the moment being in Firenze. I needed to feel super comfy but still smart casual as most of the day was being spent on planes, buses, trains and taxis. But, just imagine lugging round a suitcase and my weekend bag between destinations.  Honestly Italy is so full of culture, history and the local people are so warm and welcoming here for which I am so grateful.

Outfit dilema’s – I realised when I got there for the first time in my life I had under packed even though it was a short trip. Who’d have thought my blogger peers who are reading this will laugh at this. I’m known for bringing ten times the amount I need. I didn’t have a proper outfits planned for my daytime wears so I put this together last minute. I wanted something smart casual and slightly formal for evening dinner with of course a hint of classic oxford button down shirt from Polo Ralph Lauren paired with a All Saint’s Crew Neck Sweater.

I hadn’t packed enough clothes, so off Jen and I go on a little fashionista shopping trip to Gigli Shopping Mall down the road from our Hotel in a 10 minute taxi journey. I wore my comfy shoes again because I knew we would be walking around a lot! I opted for a faux suede Derby, Gibson bucks shoe by H & M which is a classic favourite.

From Pisa to Prato – here I’m wearing brands from the high street to designer which I also paired some skinny jeans and shoes with the outfit too. The first two photos are taken in Firenze Florence.

Art Hotel Museo in Prato – Such a beautiful place and I can’t thank them enough for putting us up here a couple of nights for the first part of our trip to experience local food, culture, wine and cuisine in Tuscany was a very unforgettable stay we loved it here very much.

When I first heard that the Italian Fashion Label was hosting a private event during London Fashion Week I knew it was going to be a great party to kick off the start of fashion week.  Having attended the very first Iceberg Catwalk show in London since it made a comeback it was definitely one of those labels to watch. Also, I’m such a big fan of their Street Wear since the label was taken over at the helm from Designer James Long their newly appointed creative director from the UK.  On Friday 13th Yes!! – I know what most were thinking in case anyone is superstitious it happened to be my lucky day as they had food catering from my favourite Meat Liquor Restaurant – just trying their burgers was delicious as I was feeling very hungry by 6pm while out and about accompanied by Aperol Spritz drinks served throughout the evening.  My outfit staple to the party yesterday evening was my signature leather jacket from Iceberg worn with a white t-shirt from Boohoo Man and Skinny Jeans with a pair of desert boots as it’s officially autumn season.  The Iceberg event was hosted at the  18montrose store in Kings Cross featuring DJ set’s from Tommy Gold, Jordss and Lifestyle Donald who entertained the crowd last night

WHAT I WORE: IH NOM UH NIT PARIS SS 2020 FEATURING SPECIAL ARTIST PERFORMANCE BY SAINT JHN

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 466 views

Just getting ready to enjoy the weekend and the weather is looks great here in Milan. Here’s just an overview of my party outfit essentials for summer time and ways I like to dress up my favourite signature leather jacket with the most minimal details can make all the difference. If you feel like ditching your tailored jacket for an alternative staple for easy weekend wears go with a less structured look that feels relaxed and comfortable on the go during Milan fashion week Men. It can work wonders and create a whole new look even with the most basic casual separates that you match with a signature item is all you need to complete an outfit. My outfit choice was ideal to attend the IH NOM UT NIT Paris Spring Summer 2020 Show with special guest Artist Performance from US Rapper Saint JHN for an intimate secret gig at Shambala in Milan. It was a great pleasure to attend the preview of the new collection by Creative Director Chaz Jourdan and be part of this special event. It was so worth it traveling all the way from London just to be here and experience Fashion Week in Milan.

WHAT I WORE: NUMERO 00 SS 2020 SHOW MILAN FASHION WEEK

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 620 views

Hey guys, I’ve just arrived in Milan yesterday after I caught the last leg of the London Fashion Week Menswear collections and it was most certainly a good idea to escape the British Weather leaving behind the rain showers  to wake up in Sunny Milan today. I’m so excited to be here for Men’s Fashion Week starting with my first show of the week to get a sneak preview of the Numero 00 Spring Summer 2020 Menswear collection to kick off Camera Moda Milano Men’s Fashion Week in style.

Last season my friend Alex modeled in the show back in January so I was keen to check out their new collection while I was here in a Milan for a few days. For today’s look I opted for classic casual seperates given the fact it was at least 32 degrees in the sweltering heat, so a crisp white t-shirt and a pair of light weight denim jeans seemed the right choice. Not forgetting comfortable footwear that looks chic too. But, also remember 2 or three changes in between shows or event is seen as the norm during Fashion Week. I’m really looking forward to tomorrows show’s and catch a bit of sightseeing in between, so I’ll see you there!

WHAT I WORE: BELSTAFF TRAVELOGUE SS 2020 PRESENTATION

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 434 views

It’s London Fashion Week Men this weekend as I managed to catch the last leg of the show schedule to attend the Belstaff  Presentation preview of the new seasons Womenswear and Menswear Collections Travelogue Spring Summer 2020. Being a Sunday and the weather very pleasant the beginning of June I was feeling inspired by preppy vibes as my weekend off duty look for today’s event. For today’s look I decided to put together a smart casual look incorporating light weight denim and a basic casual separate such as a T-shirt for a relaxed smart casual outfit. I also got to wear one of my favourite signature pinstripe blazers as my statement piece which looks great in anycase to dress up my outfit is very versatile and understated at the same time which goes with anything. I love it because it’s not your standard conventional denim, it’s denim with a twist.
