By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2min read2838 views

 Oui je t’aime Pari, a Bonjour from me in Paris for Couture Fashion Week, it’s my first time during the shows in the city so excited to see how it compares to London. It’s all about the morning cuisine and nothing does it better than starting your day with fancy coffee and croissants and who can forget the fois gras so you feel right at home in Paris. The last time I was here it was for a Christmas shopping trip for a long weekend break, but this time Fashion Week is a real treat for me.

DAY 1

I have arrived yesterday in Paris ready for the Rani Zakhem Couture show today! The plane journey from London Gatwick to Charles de Gaulle Airport was a short flight and you know Paris was even more beautiful once you get there, If you ever get to visit in Summer, there is so much culture to immerse yourself in the Parisian Chic vibes of this cosmopolitan city. All dressed up in a smart casual outfit I made my way to the shows of Paris Couture Fashion Week with an UBERX Luxury Car courtesy of the UBER Taxi App in France.

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

HOW TO WEAR THE POLO SEERSUCKER SPORT COAT FOR SUMMER | CHESTERTONS POLO IN THE PARK WEEKEND

RE-DISCOVERING MY LOVE FOR THE RALPH LAUREN CLASSIC SEERSUCKER BLAZER THIS SUMMER

A GENTLEMEN’S GUIDE TO POLO SEASON SPORTING ATTIRE: STYLE DRESS CODES 101

With the all important summer social events and invitations coming in all at once dress codes are crucial to make the right impression with the exception of Polo In The Park for a fun day divot stomping in between chukkas. Dressing to impress is a must where not only the elite polo players take centre stage but so does style.

Here’s my Essential Guide on Menswear Polo Style how best to incorporate vibrant pastel colours into your summer wardrobe during the English Sporting Social Calendar.

how to wear a seersucker blazer

The polo is always fun day out people watching from the Celebrities to the Spectators to who’s wearing what this year and where to be scene at the After Parties such as the Mahiki Enclosure. From today’s event here are my observations of the movers and shakers of the elite polo crowd veterans take on style and what they wore.


It’s a known fact guys hate shopping, but in fact it’s quite the opposite when it comes to summer social event’s, even the debonair man needs to look his best. From experience I learn what suits best and give my recommendations for outfits and how to wear them by including these in your daily style edit.

“The Ralph Lauren Seersucker Blazer the Ultimate Classic Staple for Summer”

Why not take an optimistic approach to colour and pairing your outfit with a bold statement set of bright trousers and the contrast of colours from red, green and yellow which are available to purchase from the high street to designer labels. These are worth investing in especially if you’re looking at brightening up that essential summer wardrobe so you’ll be sure to blend right in with the Chelsea locals alike.


Fitted shirt styles from Ralph Lauren are always great because they come in a variety of classic styles in the white button down collared shirt to pastel shades and bold stripes in blue. Then finish off the look with a neutral seer sucker blazer to even out the contrast of shades. A Seer Sucker blazer is unlined, so designed to keep you cool during the hot summer months at event occasions.

STYLE TIP: Seersucker blazer is unlined, so designed to keep you cool during the hot summer months.

With the English social calendar upon us we focus our attention towards stylish sporting events from the Varsity Polo, Polo in the Park to the Gold Cup at Cowdray.

For this look at Polo In The Park, I decided to keep it neutral but relaxed and I felt I had to express a style identity of my own. With summer you can’t go wrong and what better way to do this is to keep it neutral with a classic Ralph Lauren Seersucker Blazer but still include a splash of colour as you find the contrast helps bring out the best of both shades.

Even by adding the slightest finishing touches to a look such as a colour coordinated pocket square to tailored jackets can overall emphasize the best features of the whole outfit’s attire.

Looking for the perfect summer shoes can depend on the softness, texture and comfort to make it easier to walk on the lawn and inside the marquee enclosures. A slip on suede loafer in tan or dark brown rather than leather shoes helps the foot breathe more freely during the spring summer season.

Finally, your accessories choice can either create a luxury feel of sophistication or faux pas which is all down to preferential discerning taste. You can’t go wrong with skinny belts either in brown is minimal. Less is more. One of my personal favourites is a preppy style collegiate belt in dark navy with diagonal red stripes which adds a bit of character.

Next up, let’s think about that final touch of elegance such as Accessories and the best luxury Watches on the market to consider would be ‘The Chronograph’ Wrist Watches for Men. So far these are my favourite picks and there are quite a few Brands out there I’m crushing over this season to match my Sporting Attire. Whatever takes your fancy, so take your pick from these on my wish list to covet now.

 
 

That’s it, you’re now ready to be fully kitted out for a Polo Match so let’s bring on the rest of summer it’s not over yet!

ATTENDING SPECIAL ARTIST PERFORMANCE BY SAINT JHN AT MILAN FASHION WEEK MENS

WHAT I WORE: DAY 3 MFW CAMERA MODA UOMO

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.

STREET STYLE

 

I just love street style especially when it’s spontaneous and you least expect it when a friend let’s you have a go with taking a quick snap with the camera. I’m just starting to get used to the idea but when your friends says she’s been doing what she does best as a musician it’s all about confidence. Barbarella’s new EP single in collaboration with legendary House Music Producer Nick Chicane is released this summer so I’ll definitely have it on my playlist on repeat. The Track is called House Doe’s Your House Work – Chicane vs Barbarella. Your soundtrack to the Summer is here! Ibiza here I come……
