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.

NUMERO 00 SPRING SUMMER 2020 MILAN FASHION WEEK MENS

NUMERO 00 FEEL NATURAL SS 2020

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 351 views

For Numero 00 Spring Summer 2020 Creative Director Valerio Farina explores the sensory journey of freedom, lightness, simplicity and natural elements to present this season’s collection. He wanted to portray a feeling of escapism from the stereotype of metropolis city life where he prefers a natural approach to living in favor of softness and purity which are reflected in the design of the garments distinguished by the light and fluid use of fabrics.

 

 

Organic pieces take centre stage to enhance fit and its silhouettes bringing them to life where the rich colour palettes influenced by nature and the five elements of the universe Ayurveda evoke water, air, fire and earth.

The designer hopes the sensory approach of returning to Mother Nature will inspire the wearer to connect emotionally with the pieces as an awakening of consciousness that connects them to the issues of an ideology for an eco sustainable world to make better informed choices.

 

Feel Natural, Freedom, Lightness are the destinations of the sensory journey, which has brought the designer Valerio Farina to the conceive of the collection for Numero 00 SS20

Looking closely at the collection these messages are embedded in the garments to feature conflicting artworks against the single use of plastic objects including the use of organic and recycled fabrics defining the feel natural theme of this collection.

 

 

 


The Colour palette used – blue celeste, rust colour, grey, white, sage green inspired from nature


 

 

 

I also noticed a trend of street wear dominating this seasons runway’s in Milan which was evident in the other collections presented during the men’s fashion week collections this summer.

 

 

 

 

 

The Designer exposes the desire of underdressing from the preconceptions and from the rules through garments distinguish themselves for the softness and purity

Creative Director Charles Jordan presented his label IH NOM UH NIT Paris at a private preview on the outskirts of Milan at Shambala with a Special guest Artist performance from U.S. Rapper Saint JHN it was just cool to see how street wear could take inspiration from other cultures including the Orient for the menswear collection that was unveiled yesterday during the catwalk show. Street style is one of the most key things that can influence and dictate trends so it’s always interesting to see how it differs from other fashion corners of the world.

WHAT I WORE: HOUSE OF HOLLAND AW 19 ‘LONDON FASHION WEEK COLLECTION PREVIEW’

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 238 views

It’s so great to be back at London Fashion Week again to view the new seasons collections for ready to wear womenswear as one of my favourite British Designers Henry Holland of The House of Holland debuts his Autumn Winter 19 collection ‘Global Citizen’ on the runway. There’s always a great buzz surrounding his shows including the people watching and the who’s who of the fashion world come together to support Henry an amazing British talent which we are so lucky to see his work every shown each season during LFW.

On another note I could not decide what to wear today prior to show day and when I was informed there would be an after party later in the evening it was a wise decision to wear something more fancy for the occasion as you do. For launch event’s there’s that saying as you can never be too overdressed but in which case always make sure it’s practical, but still understated. I think less is more to make a style statement that will make an impression so you exude confidence when attending an event like London Fashion Week.

The show itself was an evening time slot so it made sense to go out readily dressed in semi formal wear which looks great in any case. I knew I made the right decision as normally some people make 2 changes of clothes in between shows and events depending on your schedule it can be quite hectic at times. Trust me I know from experience. My style generally has a monochrome colour palate but that’s just me I guess and sometimes I do like to switch it up a bit and experiment with different colours and textures. Other than that it really depends on my mood and how I feel on a day like today.

CULT STREETWEAR LABEL ICEBERG GETS READY FOR ITS LONDON TAKE OVER AT LFW MENS SS 2019

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 147 views

Iceberg

London Fashion Week Mens Autumn Winter 2018

Iceberg

Today I could not help feel excited about Italian Streetwear label ICEBERG Italy as newly appointed Creative Director and RCA Graduate James Long presented his debut Spring Summer 2019 collection during London Fashion Week Men’s. 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. As 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.

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.

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 handrawn or collaged interpretation 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.

House of Holland Autumn Winter 2018

It’s definitely one of the most anticipated shows to watch during London Fashion Week and always full of energy buzzing with international press and loyal celebrity clientele. As per usual guest were entertained with hospitality with a drinks reception and delicious bites to eat pre-show as the fashionista crowd gathered for the show.

The atmosphere inside the Topshop Show Space in the lead up to show time was filled with excitement as the VIP arrivals started to fill up the Front Rows amongst the fashion press, stylist and bloggers hot on the heels of social media to snap Instagram pics and update their content with live streaming of the catwalk show.

Holland’s theme for this collection evoked street wear sub cultures influenced by the urban music scene and delicate uptown polished looks show contrast between hard and soft silhouettes.

A combination of floral, camouflage prints and HOH signature tartan were motif throughout the whole collection while bold stripe details adorn tracksuit garment separates. Observing the looks which came down the runway show slogans emblazoned on garments especially hooded sweaters.

House of Holland Autumn Winter 2018

 

Inflatable oversized puffa jackets had to be the collections signature must have items which looked so edgy when worn with cap hats. I thought Hollands take on mixing elements of varsity preppy influences with street wear made statements of youth and rebellion that depict the spirit of London Street Style is juxtaposed where uptown meets downtown crowd.
