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.

Kaia Restaurant – The Ned London


A 5 Star hotel and members club in The City of London. Experience the 10 distinguished restaurants, indoor and rooftop pools,gym and private event spaces.

Take a seat it’s almost time for dinner – The Ned London oozes Art Deco glamour on the ground floor with an alluring selection of ten restaurants, bars and live jazz band playing is pretty impressive for a new Hotel and Private Members Club. For anyone that’s familiar with a bit of History about The Ned it’s very distinctive in its own unique way converted from a former Bank Vault back in the day. In the heart of London’s financial city district it’s one of the newest additions to the Luxury Hotel scene. Since its launch The Ned has garnered a reputation as one of London’s leading hotels transporting you to the atmospheric decadence of the 1920’s era.

Fancy indulging in a Japanese style brunch well look no further and try out Kaia. I recommend that you book a table in advance as the turnaround is very high at times. You can guarantee the food is absolutely divine and the inviting interior sets the scene for the ideal Sunday Brunch destination to wind down the week with a Kaia Negroni.

Experience culinary delights of Asian pacific inspired restaurant Kaia – ‘poke bowl heaven’ the best in London are deliciously served healthy as authentic dishes from tuna, salmon and mango combinations just too pretty to be eaten. Expect sushi, beautifully presented poke bowls and mains from the grill served fresh over the counter for a taste of culture from South East Asia and the Pacific.

Wedding fever has got the better of us, and with so many Dress Codes what does a Gent wear to mark a formal special occasion? Check out my recommendations on what to wear to that all important official engagement party, which reminds me that my close friends are announcing their official engagement at a formal cocktail party before the big day. I find Weddings are the best way to kick off the summer before the new seasons sporting calendar calls for a change of attire and embark on our summer vacation.

There’s never been a better time to discover tailoring that looks great, no matter what season it is and of course fine accessories to match. I recommend a great range of watches by brands Larsson and Jennings or Smart Turnout which I love for their vibrant watch straps just like the one I have is a classic preppy style. The look is now complete which reminds something is missing perhaps gifts for the future Bride and Groom as I still have a bit of time to organise finding the perfect gift before this week’s engagement party!
