LINKS À LA MODE: WEEKLY ROUNDUP 08/18
My take on Camel for the upcoming season made it to this week’s Links à La Mode from the Independent Fashion Bloggers website! Be sure to check it along with the other selected posts. The seasons are changing and as fashion and or style bloggers, you know what that means? Time to switch stuff up! Whether it be your content or your wardrobe, I always look at the seasons as a time for...
Give it up for...Camel
As AW offerings begin populating stores, both online and off, the time has come to focus on the upcoming season. As one delves into new collections and begins defining his wishlist and essentials, one key aspect to bear in mind other than style and function, is definitely the color palette. This year’s been all about bold, eye popping colors making their way into all sorts of garments…...

Pure genius…I dare you not to tap your foot
Closing up on Gant Rugger
As I mentioned before, there are few websites I love as much as Close Up and Private. Sergey Sviatchenko single-handedly revolutionized menswear imagery by means of his unique take on photography and composition. This time around he embarked on a collaboration with Gant Rugger to showcase their Autumn/Winter collection. The result? Brilliant as usual….

Hill-Side's Cherry Blossoms
One of the most discussed topics of the season has been the power of patterns and prints and how to make the most out of them. Stepping out of one’s comfort zone is always a risk and when it comes to pattern, few men are actually willing to try anything other than checks and stripes. Leading the list of the most frightening variations are floral prints: men just can’t seem to...
Mc. Nasty x Engineered Garments
Super man McNairy just can’t seem to get enough of seeing his name all over the place, judging by the flow of collaborations and projects he’s been involved with lately. As I see it, the only downside is not being able to afford all the items on my wishlist, along with the fact that ideas are running out on what to call him by now… This time around he joined forces with...

Por Vocação AW11 Looks
Por Vocação just released their looks for AW11, featuring items from the likes of Paul Smith, Martin Margiela, Our Legacy, Acne and Band of Outsiders, along with a healthy dose of irony as the shoot took place on a sunny beach scenario.

Beyond Fabric x Coisas d'Homem
I really love what the guys over @ Coisas d’Homem have been doing since they first opened their store in 2009. Their devotion to menswear accessories has placed them high up on the list of Porto’s men’s stores, becoming the place to go for original, one of a kind add-ons. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll most likely have seen some of their pieces, as...
The ultimate beach accessory
Every now and then we’re faced with a few hard to explain, yet interesting phenomena. The widespread adaptation of items or objects originally design for different purposes is well known to us all. During last week’s road trip I got a chance to experience first hand one such case. As I laid back on the beach struggling to perfectly capture my friends from Driftwood Collective on...
