Nostalgia: Por Vocação AW09 Looks #1
Having the opportunity to work at former high-end menswear retailer Por Vocação was definitely a life-changing experience for me. Besides being my first fashion related gig, it allowed me to work with an amazing team with whom I learned a lot and bore a strong influence in defining my personal take on menswear.
Their unique take on men’s style received international praise, so here are some wintery looks from the AW09 collections, including brands such as Margiela, Neil Barrett, Raf Simons, Paul Smith, Acne, Our Legacy, Giorgio Brato and Buttero.

After getting in touch with the collection at Pitti, it’s great to see it come to life on the lookbook…
Beyond Fabric x Purificacion Garcia #1
Following my previous introduction to its SS13 collection, I got a chance to style some looks for Purificacion Garcia using my favourite pieces for the season.
Starting with what might just be my first choice among all the garments in the collection, and one of the season’s essentials, this suede bomber jacket instantly earned its way to the top spots of my wishlist. The beautiful taupe shade with chambray lining and orange/burgundy highlights on the pockets and zippers, set the mood for the whole look. A contrasting pale blue crewneck sweater underneath, dark denim with contrast orange stitching and supple suede boots pick up the chromatic and texture themes. The stripped knit tie adds a dash of color and pattern to the mix..

I’m celebrating my 28th birthday today and although I didn’t take the day off, I’ll be styling the latest drops from Adam Kimmel SS12 so it’s a gift in its own way…even more so since some of those outstanding pieces are likely to become future purchases: Hawaiian Camo Pants anyone?
Here’s a glimpse of what I’m talking about…
