LINKS À LA MODE: WEEKLY ROUNDUP 07/28
My take on style and simplicity was featured in this week’s Links à La Mode, from the IFB website. Here’s the list… Whether we realize it or not, we are all influenced by something, whether it be celebrities, trends or designs of the past. This week’s links a la mode celebrates influencers and the voices we create from our inspiration. As fashion bloggers, we have each other...
Monocle's "Prom Party" Editorial
I’ve recently picked up the latest issue of Monocle and I’ve got to say: it’s packed with goodies. Among them, one that definitely caught my eye was this summer fashion editorial shot in good old students’ party haven - Benidorm. Besides the unquestionable styling, the most striking feature has to be the perfect match between look and background, resulting in a seamless...
Ovadia & Sons SS12
The twin brothers’ SS12 collection has gone live and it’s igniting the blogsphere like a wildfire. Here’s a selection of my favourite looks but head over to Sartorially Inclined for the full spread. Also, be sure to check their online store as sale is now officially up.
Stamp of Approval - Hixsept
When you’re passionate about a subject, an overwhelming urge to know every little thing about it is likely to take over you. Although such a level of knowledge is ultimately unachievable, the search often proves valuable and fulfilling. I try to make the most of my virtually non-existent free time, reading and researching several menswear related topics; one of the things I often come across...
LINKS À LA MODE: WEEKLY ROUNDUP 07/21
Great news! Just made it to this week’s Links à La Mode from the IFB website. Style is what you make it. We are all different and beautiful in our own ways. Many of us have different techniques to display how we want to present ourselves. Some people are very “structured” “prim and proper” and live by a color scheme while others go wild with mixing patterns and...
The lost art of keeping it simple...
In a time when men are becoming more and more conscious of their image and making an added effort to look their best, the allure of adding unexpected elements to an attire may be hard to resist. Add to that the continuous flow of menswear accessories entering the market and their growing social acceptance, and you end up with a volatile recipe for excess. As much as I appreciate sprezzy,...
Beyond Fabric suggests...
This time around, inspired by the days off I’m currently enjoying, I’ve decided to put together a more beachy look. When it comes to warm weather attire, shorts are one of the most controversial items: “purists” discard them on behalf of lightweight linen or tropical wool trousers, whereas many consider them a Summer essential. I for one, believe shorts are a great...

Getting ready for a short road trip through the Southwestern coast of Portugal. I’m off to meet by brother and a couple of friends for a relaxing week near the seaside: just basking in the sun, surfing and all Summer related goodies. Don’t worry: I’ve got the upcoming set of posts covered so you guys won’t even know I’m missing =) In case you’ve never been to...
There’s no denying that our mood is strongly influenced by the weather, be it in a positive or negative manner. Usually, when waking up to a sun-shiny day, you brighten up, put a smile on your face and feel an urge to dress accordingly: no wonder color makes an appearance this time of the year… This look is all about celebrating those days through color and bold pieces. The thing I...
