“Discover a Unique Watch collection that reflects the ability to adapt to your busy lifestyle and to be as versatile as you need your accessories to be”

 

Lately, this Summer I was lucky enough to preview the new watch collections by Nordgreen Copenhagen which I am delighted to keep discovering new brands on the market for fine watches and accessories. You will really appreciate the simplicity of modern minimalist Danish design and its origins of Scandinavian lifestyle.

The brand kindly offered to reach out to me to review one of their watches as I’ve been a great fan of Nordgreen Copenhagen for a while now and always on the lookout for the perfect watch to compliment my daily attire. I decided to choose the Native dark navy nylon and rose gold mesh stainless steel straps to style my weekend off-duty look and really pleased with it that I made the right choice. It even comes with a beautifully branded tote bag that’s made of eco friendly materials you get complimentary with every order.

“With a NORDIC MINDSET on design, contemplation comes first. I look for MEANING before I design anything. Then I turn to NATURE for INSPIRATION, searching for the most harmonious expression. I carefully design every component individually to be part of the whole and to respect the materials and function. That’s how I try to reveal the essence of the watch. I prefer to leave a SUBTLE SIGNATURE on the products I design and invite the person to live with it, as an open-ended story.”

Nordgreen’s Chief Designer Jakob Wagner, 2020

With this in mind, did you know that you can choose your case colour and dial along with a strap style to suit your preference of the ideal watch.

Here’s an interesting fact for you. I discovered Denmark is a global leader in green technology advancements, pioneering change and inspiring nations across the world to follow pursuit in favor of reducing environmental carbon footprint. For Nordgreen it’s not only about their amazing watches but sustainable initiatives to saving the planet. You can find out more about the Brands Giving Back Program where you can send them your old used watch which they service and repair it to sell on and find a new owner. You can count on sustainable luxury whereby Nordgreen partners with Danish manufactures abroad to ensure overseas production adhere to the highest levels and Danish labour practices for corporate social responsibility.

I was actually looking for a new watch for myself or a gift for that special someone or occasion and personally recommend the Nordgreen Native model because it’s considered one of the best sellers in the range.

Trying on the Native Men’s Watches it really redefines classic timepieces where the contemporary sleek design and subtle details deliver timeless watches that will never go out of style.

For me the Nordgreen Native is the perfect balance between striking elegance and fine detailing with Japanese time movement. These watches are ideal for a style statement that stands out from the rest and fits into your everyday lifestyle.

Sustainable fashion has been at the focus of the apparel and clothing industry recently and it’s heartening to see the brand Naeco producing their sunglasses using repurposed plastic bottles from our oceans.

The Deep Connection with the Ocean is Naeco’s DNA, and Founder Zak chose to be a business that reduces waste, recycles and makes a difference.

It’s quite astonishing how their approach to pioneer eco textiles makes for a stylish design and investing in products like these will help secure cleaner oceans for future generations to come.

 

Just 5 percent of plastics are recycled effectively while 40 percent end up in the landfill and a third in fragile ecosystems such as the world’s oceans.

Much of the remainder is burned. Did you know, at least 8m tonnes of plastics leak into the oceans – which is the equivalent of dumping the contents of one rubbish truck into the ocean every minute.

Treat Yourself and the Planet Better

Naeco is the proud winner of the DHL Fashion Potential Award 2019. Their new website and Trident Sunglasses collection has just landed and I can’t wait to tell you what they have been working on. So far there are jackets, blazers and other garments all made from recycled plastic in signature super soft fabrics.

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last.

 

 

I just couldn’t wait to do a try on at home for the new collection of Unisex sunglasses designed to suit the face of both men and women including the exceptional high workmanship to the high end German hinges ensure they stay on your head in all situations – even the roughest of weather conditions too.

 

The Ocean is in Our Hands

 

 

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last. When I was asked to model a new sunglasses range for Naeco of course I said yes absolutely 100 percent. Why? Not only because they are a luxury product, and who doesn’t adore something well made and long lasting.

They have a few different styles but the wayfarers were my favourite just because they are light weight and very comfortable. It’s maybe it’s something to do with the German engineered frame is spot on and very versatile to wear whether sailing the highs or poolside lounging.

Most importantly this is a British Brand that is working hard to make a difference and help clean up the planet. Also, during the pandemic we must do our utmost best to support small business and new start up to get the economy going in Britain.

Discover the premium Gin that Celebrates everything about the Côte d’Azur Lifestyle – Le Cap Soiree

Did you know the Côte d’Azur is acclaimed for it’s timeless glamour with over 300 days of sunshine a year which boast the most iconic coastlines in the world. It makes me think of Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. Imagine this – where you can plunge into the spirit of the French Riviera through the taste of Cap Gin.

 

As far as I know, Cap Gin is made on the shores of the Mediterranean and the spirit of the Côte d’Azur reflects that of the glamorous stylish lifestyles lived in Cannes, Nice to Monaco.

Since lockdown happened in Britain amid the Covid 19 pandemic people are still reluctant to make vacation plans as only most recently restrictions are slowly being lifted with the opening of some hotels, bars and restaurants. I’d like to hear you’re thoughts on this or are you still in favor of entertaining at home to feel safe until this situation settles a bit.

CAP Gin Le Esprit de la Côte France

Although I’m still hesitant for making social plans, I support staying in and drinking can still be fun with great company with sumptuous cocktails to get you into the summer party spirit. I thought this period was very unusual to spend time at home with all major sporting events to music festivals cancelled it seems vacations abroad are nonexistent. So why not bring the Cote d’Azur Lifestyle to me instead.

The Distinct CAP Gin’s formulation was produced  in collaboration with Dr David Clutton PHD a former Technical Director at Diageo who also processed the distillation of Bombay Sapphire Gin.

This week I’m discovering and getting to know Cap Gin from the South of France that features botanicals inspired by the French Riviera with mimosa flowers, rose, and orange blossom sourced from the Provence region. Just for you guys at home, let’s get to know the Gin together and tell you what makes this brand new spirit so distinctly remarkable in taste. For me it does have the wow factor that appeals to Gin lovers alike. When the sample of the Cap Gin arrived the other day, I’m so very delighted to tell you more about it. So here’s what I was able to find out so far. Cap Gin is distilled and produced at the distillerie de Terres Rouge, Turrene in France to create the most classic and timeless cocktails

 

Cap Gin, the unique premium spirit from the Côte d’Azur has made it’s debut in The Spirits Business Gin Masters 2020, being awarded two gold medals.

It’s no surprise that in it’s first year of entering the awards, the Gin won across multiple categories. Experts judges on the panel have portrayed it as floral and luxurious applauding Cap Gin as the ‘IT’ drink this summer winning gold in both the premium and London Dry Categories shows its distinction for exclusivity.

Curious and what to know what’s in it? If you love the fresh feeling of summer then this ones defiantly up your street if you love all things citrusy. Throughout history citrus has formed an integral part of the Côte d’Azur from the prestige of Menton Lemon to Fleur d’Oranger used in the perfumeries of Grasse. Cap Gin contains all of these botanicals, fruit, spices, and herbs to create flavour that is derived from this iconic region. You’ll notice the flavorsome of coriander and juniper mixed just right with natural scents found here to create this premium French Gin.

Just a bit of background into CAP Gin which was created by it’s co founder’s Andrew Campbell, James Auld, Adam Payne three friends to embody the rich culture and diverse heritage of its residents with homage to the spirit of the Côte d’Azur. The port town of Antibes can considered as a major influence with its significance of historical culture to the alluring glitterati nightlife scene.

Even the bottle reflects the clear coastal waters of the Mediterranean brought to life as the go to lifestyle brand. When tasting the gin for yourself it gives you that feeling of being there in the moment or aspire to want to go there is the idea to sell you the Côte d’Azur lifestyle in a bottle. I do love the gin’s uniquely distilled floral finished with a delicate blend of citrus is lightly refreshing to portray the lifestyle of the South of France . I can’t imagine anything more perfect than to unwind this weekend with the refreshing taste of Cap Gin.

 

 

Best Gin

Cap Gin can be distinguished as classic, refined and satisfyingly refreshing – enjoy a taste of the French Riviera. Welcome to the Côte d’Azur with luxury and indulgence around every corner.

For now, we wait patiently for the end of confinement, but now instead let’s live for the weekend shall we? As we continue to live behind closed doors, but hopefully not for much longer there is elegance and style in abundance on the Côte d’Azur. So cheers, jump into the weekend with a home made Cap Gin & Tonic, Negroni’s to French 75 cocktails and make some new memories with Cap Gin.

As one of the most important dates in the fashion calendar, all focus will be on Milan over the next few days as Fashion Houses are preparing to reveal their new season’s collections for Fall Winter 2020. Camera Moda the official event organiser for Milan Fashion Week returns this season with a jam packed schedule of catwalk shows, presentations and events to celebrate Men’s Fashion Week with style and flair.

The thrilling line up on the fashion week schedule has both established designers as well as emerging talent, even more reason to secure your spot on the FROW for a close up of this seasons key trends.

DUOMO Milano – Italy. It was honestly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever set eyes on with a long climb to the roof before lunch then heading to a catwalk show. Great weather too! Surprising for January.

We visited the Designer Showrooms Milan – one of our favourites from Men’s Fashion Week. I spoke with the Designer Matteo Bigliardi and told me how they are going for a new way of doing Tuxedos. I’ve never seen anything like it I thought it was excellent. Everything was so high quality and well made. I loved the coordinating sets and tried on one of the comfiest coats ever too.

CULT STREETWEAR LABEL ICEBERG GETS READY FOR ITS LONDON TAKE OVER AT MEN’S FASHION WEEK

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 690 views

So what do we know so far, Iceberg is a cult streetwear label from Milan and has been going strong since 1974 where the Italian Fashion House is known for it’s DNA of vibrant colour together with Long’s remix of iconic technical knits in casual silhouettes.

By looking at the Fashion Week schedule it was one of the most highly anticipated shows to mark the start of Men’s Fashion Week and definitely worth waiting for.

London is known for its sartorial elegance and tailoring the focus was on street wear and sport luxe this season that dominated the Men’s Catwalk this week.

The inspiration for Iceberg’s SS 2019 collection made references to the designer’s Italian love of F1 where dance meets football London attitude that was reflected in the energy of the show. Theme’s in the collection explored the past with a vision of the future which emphasized the importance of equality that everyone is part of a winning team.

Long’s signature garment’s included quirky deep fried glitched graphics are hand drawn or collage interpretations on Peanuts, Joe Cool, and tone on tone logo’s which came down the runway. A playful use of texture in the way triple printed denim looks sparkle along with plastic-coated gloss knit Iceberg logo’s dazzle opponents off the sport arena.

Pieces that stood out for me in the Iceberg collection were versatile tailored jackets with snap fastenings for both menswear and womenswear worn over a classic white separates’ with hidden self colour logo woven into the fabric. Details such as Warhol flowers adorn across satins, 3D knit’s and football shirts that affiliate you with the fashion capitals of the world.

After the show, I hailed a cab to make my way over to the Kirk Original’s party at the Private White Store as we drove by the Strand I manage to get a glimpse of the Iceberg Model Squad in a parade as they passed by Somerset House, Trafalgar Square and ending at Piccadilly. It certainly stopped London Traffic by surprise as the high energy sports drinks colours of blue, green, yellow, pink and red shout Viva Italia as the Models walked straight off the catwalk onto London’s street’s. What a great PR Stunt during Men’s Fashion Week that represented the new millennial generation of fashionista’s and revival of the label’s signature style.

His signature style is very much couture influenced with 70’s inspired silhouettes remembering the golden days of Disco reminds me also of Dynasty from the power dressing attitude days of strong confident women who appreciate the finer things in life.

Each collection is beautifully made and every fine detail you see in a garment reflects his skilled craftsmanship of couture techniques from intricate beading, sequins to Swarovski crystals, to diamante that gleam and shimmer in the blink of an eye is hard to go unnoticed.

You can expect high octane glamour from Julien Macdonald who brings to London’s catwalk this season all the excitement as it unfolds with Victoria’s Secret Model Leomi Anderson walking in the show. It was my first time attending one of Julien’s shows and what a great pleasure it was to see his work during London Fashion Week month.

Even Men’s tuxedo silhouettes got a makeover fused with sportswear details which made it contemporary for a new look to wear as smart casual luxury.

THOMAS PINK GOES BACK TO BUSINESS AT LCM WITH RISKY BUSINESS INSPIRED PRESENTATION

Thomas Pink Presentation Spring Summer 2017 inspired by Annie Leibovitz 1992 Vogue shoot

Tonight the Thomas Pink Presentation at the ICA on Pall Mall just had to be one of my favourite highlights of the week. This season Pink’s LCM presentation was inspired with a twist by the Annie Leibovitz 1992 Vogue shoot as male models sat on suspended chairs from the wall. Something different and remarkably unique which looked like great fun as the models seemed to be enjoying themselves and spectators alike were humored by the 80’s throwback to Risky Business movie staring Tom Cruise.

This was of course in reference to a combination of male models wearing boxers, shirts and tailoring to cleverly indicate it was SS 2017 with a bit of a tongue and cheek approach entertained all. The latest collection’s luxury apparel from tailoring, shirts, accessories including neck ties, pocket squares, cufflinks and men’s underwear took centre stage this season. Not forgetting the surprise VIP guest in attendance Model Toby Huntington-Whiteley.

Pieces on display evoked luxury and sophistication which the Pink is synonymous for creating immaculate shirting for the discerning man about town.

The iconic looks on showcase during the presentation for Spring Summer 2017 had formal and informal options to suit all occasions matched with boxer shorts to knee high socks were appropriate for the sweltering heat wave of a mid summers afternoon.

One of our favourite items has to be a luxury imperial classic 200s shirts, the double cuff Redmond stripe and made in England. Thomas Pink Shirts are made from renowned mills and exclusive fabrics where attention to detail is unrivalled. Traditional methods are used as well as time honoured craftsmanship where the collars are hand turned.
