Beyond Fabric x Wrong Weather SS11
Similarly to what happened last season, Wrong Weather once again invited me to put up 3 looks using their pieces, this time for Spring Summer 11. Drawing upon Summery inspiration, I set out to deliver three different, yet somewhat related ensembles, which would transpire my personal aesthetic into WW’s universe.
The first look is the most relaxed and season inspired of the bunch, pairing two Summer staples: shorts and a short sleeve shirt. This was all about having fun with color and mixing patterns, which due to the different scales and complementing shades blend perfectly together (checks on the shirt and stripes on the shorts and belt). The second look is focused on the striped navy motif and the splash of color given by the desert boots; the tote screamed Summer to me and is a great way to carry your stuff around town. The final attire is a step up, something you could wear to work (depending on your area of expertise, of course) or a night out. Buttoning up in hot days is perfectly doable, but here I went for a slightly more casual feel, leaving the top button unbuttoned and making use of the military tuck. Although he’s wearing a tie, the overall ensemble just seems Summer appropriate.
I’m really excited with the end result and by being able to share it with you. All pieces are available for purchase here.

Armando Cabral SS11
A while back, Wrong Weather hosted an event to commemorate the arrival of their new footwear brand: Armando Cabral. Although I was unable to attend the inauguration, I had a chance to drop by later on and get a glimpse of the newly arrived models.
Making its international debut this season (SS11), the shoe brand comes as an extension of the renowned top model’s successful career, who ignited runways for brands such as Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Dries Van Noten and Dior Homme (among others).
Aimed at delivering luxury footwear for men, the focus is on high end materials, quality craftsmanship (made in Italy) and fresh, invigorating color palette and design, courtesy of Rucky Zambrano. On this first collection the range of models includes boat shoes, desert boots, loafers and a personal favourite, the woven sandal.
