Camoshita SS15 Pitti Preview
Yet another outstanding selection from one of my favourite designers and style inspirations. Yasuto Kamoshita keeps on delivering perfectly balanced collections that combine tailored and casual elements with unique sophistication. A representation of his personal style, the collection merges a variety of influences that translate into a brilliant mix of colours, patterns, textures and luxurious fabrics. Apart from the inherent visual appeal, the pieces on display just screamed to be experienced in person: bouclé effects, open weave knits, seersucker suits and blazers, lightweight cottons or brushed jerseys create a distinct universe where even the simplest of garments is on another level.

Boglioli AW14 Lookbook
It’s interesting to see how one of the epitomes of Italian suiting keeps on delivering refreshing takes on classic menswear staples. With a keen eye for the latest trends, Boglioli seamlessly incorporates small tweaks to their offerings, adjusting everything from fit, washes, length, textures, colors and superb use of accessories.
Society’s Burden on Personal Style
One of the most outspoken clichés when it comes to style and personality (or many of life’s aspects for that matter), is undoubtedly to “be yourself” and “pay no attention to what other people think”. This motto is considered one of life’s lessons and to actually achieve it, an elevated form of enlightenment available only to a select few. While it sounds like common sense and resonates with the vast majority of us, the truth is that to some extent, we are all subject to society’s pre-conceptions. Now, I’m not referring to the notions of what is socially acceptable or demandable; I’m focusing on much shallower, superfluous criteria of what is considered “normal” or generally expected as a variation of it.
