Just getting ready to enjoy the weekend and the weather is looks great here in Milan. Here’s just an overview of my party outfit essentials for summer time and ways I like to dress up my favourite signature leather jacket with the most minimal details can make all the difference. If you feel like ditching your tailored jacket for an alternative staple for easy weekend wears go with a less structured look that feels relaxed and comfortable on the go during Milan fashion week Men. It can work wonders and create a whole new look even with the most basic casual separates that you match with a signature item is all you need to complete an outfit. My outfit choice was ideal to attend the IH NOM UT NIT Paris Spring Summer 2020 Show with special guest Artist Performance from US Rapper Saint JHN for an intimate secret gig at Shambala in Milan. It was a great pleasure to attend the preview of the new collection by Creative Director Chaz Jourdan and be part of this special event. It was so worth it traveling all the way from London just to be here and experience Fashion Week in Milan.

Hey guys, I’ve just arrived in Milan yesterday after I caught the last leg of the London Fashion Week Menswear collections and it was most certainly a good idea to escape the British Weather leaving behind the rain showers to wake up in Sunny Milan today. I’m so excited to be here for Men’s Fashion Week starting with my first show of the week to get a sneak preview of the Numero 00 Spring Summer 2020 Menswear collection to kick off Camera Moda Milano Men’s Fashion Week in style.
Last season my friend Alex modeled in the show back in January so I was keen to check out their new collection while I was here in a Milan for a few days. For today’s look I opted for classic casual seperates given the fact it was at least 32 degrees in the sweltering heat, so a crisp white t-shirt and a pair of light weight denim jeans seemed the right choice. Not forgetting comfortable footwear that looks chic too. But, also remember 2 or three changes in between shows or event is seen as the norm during Fashion Week. I’m really looking forward to tomorrows show’s and catch a bit of sightseeing in between, so I’ll see you there!

It’s London Fashion Week Men this weekend as I managed to catch the last leg of the show schedule to attend the Belstaff Presentation preview of the new seasons Womenswear and Menswear Collections Travelogue Spring Summer 2020. Being a Sunday and the weather very pleasant the beginning of June I was feeling inspired by preppy vibes as my weekend off duty look for today’s event. For today’s look I decided to put together a smart casual look incorporating light weight denim and a basic casual separate such as a T-shirt for a relaxed smart casual outfit. I also got to wear one of my favourite signature pinstripe blazers as my statement piece which looks great in anycase to dress up my outfit is very versatile and understated at the same time which goes with anything. I love it because it’s not your standard conventional denim, it’s denim with a twist.

It’s so great to be back at London Fashion Week again to view the new seasons collections for ready to wear womenswear as one of my favourite British Designers Henry Holland of The House of Holland debuts his Autumn Winter 19 collection ‘Global Citizen’ on the runway. There’s always a great buzz surrounding his shows including the people watching and the who’s who of the fashion world come together to support Henry an amazing British talent which we are so lucky to see his work every shown each season during LFW.
On another note I could not decide what to wear today prior to show day and when I was informed there would be an after party later in the evening it was a wise decision to wear something more fancy for the occasion as you do. For launch event’s there’s that saying as you can never be too overdressed but in which case always make sure it’s practical, but still understated. I think less is more to make a style statement that will make an impression so you exude confidence when attending an event like London Fashion Week.
The show itself was an evening time slot so it made sense to go out readily dressed in semi formal wear which looks great in any case. I knew I made the right decision as normally some people make 2 changes of clothes in between shows and events depending on your schedule it can be quite hectic at times. Trust me I know from experience. My style generally has a monochrome colour palate but that’s just me I guess and sometimes I do like to switch it up a bit and experiment with different colours and textures. Other than that it really depends on my mood and how I feel on a day like today.

London Fashion Week Mens Spring Summer 2019
London Fashion Week Mens
It’s the last day of Mens Fashion Week, but I managed to catch only part of it upon my return after the Christmas Break. It’s great to be back in town as New Year has come around so quickly and before you know it we are in work mode again. This season I noticed at fashion week it has been cut from 5 to 3 days with some designers pulling out of schedule while other’s are talking about attending Pitti U’mo in Italy. But, still we can make the most of Fashion Week and attend some shows to view the new seasons collections. With the exception of Belstaff I’m always looking forward to attending the presentation and support British Fashion as there’s all this speculation surrounding how Brexit will affect the fashion industry if we leave the EU.
Heritage brands are deeply rooted in tradition which make it so special that it’s worth celebrating it’s success because men’s fashion week is the ideal platform to promote British Style on an international level with the exceptional pool of talent we have in London. Most of all I love spotting the fleet of London Fashion Week Mens Wagons sponsored by Mercedes Benz which you always see around town during the shows confirms no doubt it’s fashion week has arrived once again this season. Exciting times, but not forgetting it’s all the hard work and effort people put in as the industry must be worth billions in the U.K. Economy which is why Brexit might not be great in terms of the single market for business.
The Belstaff presentation was held upstairs at their flagship store on Bond Street as I was kindly directed upstairs via a lift in the discreet lobby. It was a smaller venue this time round so I’m glad I attended the event early on as I was not the only one as the venue soon reached it’s maximum capacity being the last day of Men’s Fashion Week. As you would expect during LFW MENS very busy indeed as Stylist, Bloggers, Influencers and Press all mingled together to view Belstaff Autumn Winter 2019 Collection: Great British Roots hosted by Brand Ambassadors The Turner Twin’s and various VIP’s in attendance.
I noticed in the centre of the room at Belstaff House in Mayfair the space was dominated by large packing crates with large Persian rugs suggesting the spirit of travel iconic with the brands DNA. It was an amazing experience to observe up close the distinctive spirit and contemporary evolution of the brands story revisiting the history of outfitting motorcyclist and adventurers.
What drew me to the brand during my first encounter with the label is the innovative use luxury fabrics and finishes where are hand waxed leather, suede and shearling, the finest blends of merino wools and cashmere to name a few. Although we associate the brand with their renowned signature jackets this season explores an in depth look of knitwear styles which can be styled as layering pieces as the answer to modern outerwear.
The Autumn Winter 2019 collection is the first by newly appointed Creative Director Sean Lehnhardt-Moore and reflects his passion for the roots of the brand where technical fabrics capture the modern day essence of advanced treated raw materials. To this day Belstaff stays true to this philosophy since pioneering the label in the industrial north of England during the 1920’s. All the clothing is very versatile to wear and these iconic jackets instantly stand out as classic staples to form part of your wardrobe essentials which make it ideal for traveling too season to season.

During Day Two of London Fashion Week Men’s it’s always a challenge to find something to wear that feels most comfortable in the sweltering heat of London during the Summer. Even more so you find that it’s best to go for light weight fabrics like linen and cotton that can manage the warm climate.
As a matter of fact I chose to pair a tailored jacket with weekend essential staples such as a simple t-shirt for a smart casual look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour against other textures which can look great in contrast to one another. I felt today I wanted to capture the essence of Summer in London but with a resort sort of feel.
For instance, hence the t-shirt evoking a bit a bit nautical details as its’ all about being outdoors making the most of a sunny day in June. Alternative separates apart from your conventional Light weight denim could be chinos also if you want to dress it up a little more depending on the occasion such as sporting events in English Social Calendar this weekend at Polo in The Park Fulham. I’m at Fashion Week anyway and that’s what I’m up to going to shows during the day and if there’s time to catch up with friends why not!
