Introducing: Lobo Marinho
The brainchild of my good friend André Marinho, Lobo Marinho is an upcoming Portuguese brand aimed at delivering craftsmanship and passion to all those with a dandy feel. The family run business brings together three generations, with all pocket squares incorporating the lifetime experience and traditional techniques used by his grandmother. Featuring a variety of patterns and fabrics, each square is sewn and rolled by hand with unique passion and dedication. I was happy to be involved in the project shooting the pics for the website and Boris made the cut as well.

PG - Blogging My City #2
With a unique concept and proven success, A Vida Portuguesa seemed like a natural choice as a favourite shopping venue. Located in the heart of the city and offering a never-ending range of traditional Portuguese products, some of which most people thought of as extinct, the space allows you to travel back in time and experience what life was like back then. This focus on the revivalism of Portuguese culture is perfectly balanced by an array of current products from both upcoming and renowned designers, including everything from clothing, homewear, accessories, up to design pieces and beauty products.
As an aficionado of “made in Portugal” products and our rich cultural heritage, it’s no surprise I feel right at home here. Furthermore, the space itself is astonishing: the carefully refurbished 3-storey house preserved most of its original architectural elements, conveying a unique ambience filled with natural light.
As for the look itself, it portrays a well balanced put together ensemble perfect for everyday wear. While it may appear somewhat simple at first, the color and texture combinations work great, while the small details add a refreshing take: the contrast stitching on the buttons, polka dots socks, orange straps on the suede boots and an unexpected twist with the elefant print bandana worn at the waist.
Details: green cotton cardigan, striped linen button down shirt, white denim, snuff suede boots, elephant print bandana and polka dot socks by Purificacion Garcia.
