LFWM AW18 – Day 2 #OOTD

I’ve not been able to find many images from LFWM of my attire, next season I’ll make sure I take some myself so I can reference them better for the blog.

Day 2 was unbelievably cold, my feet were frozen and I could barely type on my phone as my fingers were going numb. Despite that however, I think I managed to style it out with some ‘northern charm’ and act like all was good.

My suitcase was filled to the brim (that bloody cape took up half the space) so I didn’t think to pack a coat (or even a jumper to wear under the suit). But hey, the show must go on.

You know me by now, if I’m going to be wearing a suit, you know that suit is going to be somewhat ‘standout’ whether that be the accessories or the pattern/colours, I can’t do plain… It’s a curse really.

This year I had also rather excitingly bought myself a backpack. I know how nerdy that sounds, but I haven’t had one for quite some time so it felt like a thrill. The last one I bought was a squiggle print Vivienne Westwood backpack from the Africa collection and, although I loved it very much, it was falling to bits.

My main requirement was to find a bag that I could wear with a suit and it still look smart and sleek. That’s when I decided to by myself a rather boxy backpack from Dr. Martens and I must say, I absolutely adore it! Good job Harold.

All in all, I’m quite happy with this look, I know I wouldn’t be able to wear it everywhere but the suit itself can be worn as separates as it’s striking enough on their own. I might wear the trousers to work tomorrow, I’ve inspired myself just writing this.

LFWM SS18 Day 1 Outfit

LFWM was a very brief one for me this season. Sadly I only had chance to do the first 2 days which was a bit of a bummer but still nice to head down and see some shows. This season marked the 5 years of London Fashion Week Men’s (formerly London Collections: Men) so it was a bit of a let down that I could only do the first two days… Financial troubles, we’ve all been there, but it was a rather fun season and so I thought it was about time I uploaded some of the things I saw and what I wore during the festivities.

I finally got a chance to wear my Agi & Sam faux cross-stitch blazer which I absolute love but haven’t had an opportunity to wear yet. There was no real inspiration to my attire today. My vibe was a bit of an 80’s acid-trip Teddy Boy heading to prom.

Shoes: Vivienne Westwood
Sunglasses: Joshua Kane

There has been quite a delay on my blog. I’ve recently started a new job which is consuming most of my time so I haven’t been very pro-active with my blogging. However, it’s a great job that I am absolutely loving and it will give me chance to earn some more money for new treats and trinkets.

Hopefully wanting to get back into a few fashion projects as well as i’ve not really had much opportunity to shoot anything and i’m starting to feel a bit art redundant. Anyway, ramble over.

Thank you to my good gal pal Amy Alice Platt for taking this snap of me during the fashion week escapades. It’s always nice to catch up with her as I don’t often get the opportunity.

I was Amy’s student mentor at university and my word me and this girl had some good banter.
Lots of love to this one!

A poor drunken attempt at a fashion hop. Well, someone had to I suppose. Sadly, I look more like a startled Zebra.

TOPMAN: London Street Style: The Capital’s 6 Biggest Trends

This was a rather fun post to have found whilst having an online browse for some new clobber. Turns out i’m somewhat of a “Trendy Wendy” this season and I must say I have been quite shocked on the impact this simple little orange checkered suit has had on the fashion press. Maybe it’s the bold colours in a rather depressing January filled with Tube Strikes and the ever-looming threat of Donal Trump… Who knows? Either way, its fun to be on the sunny side of life.

#OOTD – LFWM AW17 Day 1 by Joseph Kent

In a rather cold and depressing January (especially with looming threat of Donald Drumpf potentially destroying the world and causing an apocalypse), I felt it was only appropriate to try and brighten spirits and clear the grey skies with a somewhat ‘jazzy’ suit. Though its a relatively simple cut suit, the bold burnt orange check drew me in and then paired with a vintage peaked collar yellow shirt and statement tie I was ready to go.  The suit was from Asos and didn’t cost me that much. In fact, it was my first purchase from Asos and I have to say I was incredibly impressed with the quality of fabric and how comfortable it was to wear. I definitely will be making more purchases in the near future. On a side note, a presenter from Pause magazine asked me how I would describe my look and the first thing that came to my head was 70s Porn Shop.
These photos were taken by my good friend Joseph Kent who is an incredible photographer and always captures street style beautifully. I would suggest you have a gander at his website to see what he’s got going on.

London Collections: Men AW15 – Illustrated by Trystan Matthey

London Collections: Men AW15 has proved to be a very exciting season, this time round I had the pleasure of collaborating with a very talented illustrator. Trystan Matthey has drawn each outfit I wore at LC:M.
Trystan’s illustrations of mythical beings fascinated me and I loved the idea of having my attire illustrated in a similar fashion.
I hope you like the illustrations as much as I do and if so, I would strongly suggest checking out his Instagram – @tribandej
