For me its always a pleasure taking a little trip down to London, a place packed full of style, exciting new developments and concepts. Whilst there I was lucky enough to experience one such concept that is growing rapidly in popularity throughout the big city and Europe, this is of course endoSPHÈRES therapy. At Nyumba, number one Sloane Square, I caught up with Pietro Simone to see and try out the treatment for myself.
Just now during these summer months I have found myself going a bit daft for brands from across the pond, specifically The Golden State. Recently I had a look at Chief Made, a quirky, street orientated take on the regular pocket square, in which I then decided to order myself one of the stunningly sharp fedora hat’s from another Californian brand, that of Brixton.
When we talk about about handkerchiefs, it is something that usually makes us think of Saville Row and good old Great Britain. The well refined gent tucking one into his breast pocket as he ventures out for the evening. Refreshingly however there is a new handkerchief brand on the scene, all the way from sunny California who have put out a slightly more modern take on this age old accessory. Step forth CHIEF MADE.
It is a known fact that Italy is a hub of creativity and is considered by many, as the home of fashion, art and design. For me it was no surprise then to see an emergence of an outfit like D.Sign, a startup which has a particular focus on 3D printing absolutely stunning, functional objects for purchase.
We all know the backpack is a very popular accessory just now with statement pieces from high end brands such as Fendi, Valentino and Givenchy visible everywhere we go. Recently however I decided to check out a brand, fresh to the shores of the U.K and drawing inspiration from those vintage alpinist’s and explorers. I’am of course talking about Doughnut Bags.
Summer is now in full bloom and revellers up and down the country are looking for bars and beer gardens to sit in with various refreshing drinks and cocktails to compliment. Delightfully, I was lucky enough this past weekend to check out the perfect summer accompaniment, a little hint of Mexico in the form of the “Patrón The Summer” Cocktail tour.
In this day and age we can get bespoke services in so many items. Mostly it tends to be in shirts, suits and luggage, not so much shoes which is crazy considering the amount of time we spend on our poor old feet throughout the day. Enter then the chaps from BrokenBird Bookmakers, here to take us and our feet into the world of 3D scanned bespoke footwear.
One of my favourite things about summer, aside from the glorious sunshine, is the vibrant colours and outfit choices that come out of the wardrobe for a good showing. Recently on my trip to Dubai I paired up with British label Asquith & Fox, a brand whose stylish preppy pieces have colour and zest at their core, something which I’m sure you will be drawn to and fascinated by.
Currently as we are in the peak of British summer and holiday time, its always good to make sure your shirts are at their sharpest when you head to the local bar, restaurant or poolside. To help you out, I’ve teamed up with the folks over at Debenhams and picked some electric Resort Shirts from their range in store that is guaranteed to help you look and feel as cool as possible.
Currently in the mens swimwear world, there are many brands doing their own take on the tailored finish, incorporating the side adjusters you tend to get on a bespoke pair of trousers. Now don’t get me wrong, I love this detail and finish, possessing quite a few like it myself, however when I became aware of Xarifa and their sea rope incorporating draw string shorts, I was instantly captivated by the exciting nautical details this brand had to offer.
