L’Envol, Eau Du Toilet

When I heard I had to travel for the Punta Mita’s 7th Golf Open, I knew I had to pack smart and bring with me a perfume that will be perfect for all the activities. From the galas to luncheons, dinners to the actual golf competition, so I decided to go pick up the new L’Envol, Eau Du Toilet, at JL Penha. This fragrance is an instant energy shot, woody, sweet like honey, magnetic and definitely an elegant scent.   L’Envol, Eau Du Toilet is available at Penha. Visit them to try it and shop it.

WEAR IT THREE WAYS THIS SEASON

The holidays are coming, and there’s always some downtime when you go home for break. Whether that is some outdoor activities with your friends, celebrations out in town or a day off to stay low-key and stay home in a cozy sweater. Men’s Health challenged me to take this INC MEN sweater and style it three different ways for the holidays! The sweater itself gives you this celebratory vibe without being one ugly Christmas sweater. It’s definitely a winter-inspired piece and it can be paired with essentially everything. So, since this post is about wearing a piece in three ways, I will show you how I did it with this INC sweater. A day ice skating: I haven’t ice-skated in years, but I was willing to go and try not to fall. I put on some jeans, a turtleneck to keep me warm, a cute scarf and topped it with my INC sweater. Out and about: Black jeans, black crewneck, fall boots and the INC sweater on top as the hero piece. You can never go wrong with …

I own Cristiano Ronaldo’s jeans

What’s cooler than Cristiano Ronaldo? Nothing beats the Soccer star, and now fashion designer! However, his new denim brand, CR7 comes really close. CR7 by Cristiano Ronaldo launched earlier this year and is an extension of his CR7 underwear brand. I recently styled my new pair of CR7 denim. I opted for a slightly distressed pair that comes in a light blue wash called coastal blue. These guys are meant to fit snug at the hip and have a slim fit around your thighs all the way down to your ankle. Made out of a stretchy fabric which allows you to do everything with them, including playing a friendly soccer match if that’s where your day takes you. They’re casual and easy going, and most importantly they are comfortable! The denim looks cool and effortless with a simple sweater or a t-shirt, and a button-down can dress them up a bit for a night out.  Here’s how I styled it for a lazy Sunday afternoon around town shooting with my friend Moti.

MALLEO´S LBW

An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity. The simplicity and elegance of the Black Eivind by Malleo speaks high volumes with its minimal design and ability to enhance any casual, smart or elegant ensemble. Consider this the black minimal watch for men like the popular black dress for women, It is a key piece, an essential in any respectable gentlemen’s wardrobe. Eivind, which means a gift given to winners in Norse mythology, like a gold medal, is a triumphant piece that should be and could be worn every day with virtually any outfit. For example, to work, a night out, lunch and essentially any situation which also makes it the perfect travel companion and an excellent gift this season. Oh! And it’s pretty.

WEAR IT THREE WAYS

I would say as time passes I’ve become a Smart Shopper. Whenever I find myself buying a new piece, particularly a statement item, I ask myself the following question: How many times are you going to wear this garment, Christian? There are two different statement pieces. The one kind that you can wear once and is so memorable that you can’t wear again (i.e. shirts or pants), and the other statement piece that you can pair differently and wear over and over again without having you peers noticing (i.e. Jackets, shoes and bags). So, therefore, when I picked this INC jacket I thought to myself I can wear this beauty on multiple occasions and get away with it. This edgy jacket can be dressed up or toned down depending on what you pair it with and will give you a modern feel without fail.  The black and white contrast, stripes and color-blocking make it playful and current. So I decided to prove the versatility of this piece by pairing it with three different looks: Sporty, Laid-back cool …

THE EVERYDAY BOOTS| ANKARI FLORUSS

The Sunday boots, that’s how Ankari Floruss calls them, are the latest addition to my fall wardrobe.  I decided to rename them The Everyday Boots for the season since you can wear them over and over again. They’re a classic pair of boots, beautifully crafted in Spain Andre made out of brown leather. The boots can be paired with virtually any outfit this upcoming holiday season, and  most important they’re comfortable AF, like a sneaker. See How I styled them this fall. You should definitely check them out HERE or in any of the pictures below.  

FIRST INSTINCT | ABERCROMBIE&FITCH

When you feel that the top notes in this perfume are Gin & Tonic you immediately think this is a night out fragrance, a party perfume, meant for vibrant guys,  that are outgoing and spontaneous, a go-getter. For me, that I am no longer a kid but still young I find it revitalizing and energetic. The melon note on First Instinct makes it fun, flirty yet masculine, tropical without making you think of one of Carmen Miranda’s hats. This is a perfume I would wear every day to the gym, to the office, on date or night out. Price range is pretty affordable and would make a great gift for you or for a friend, boyfriend, brother, for any man in your life that needs a boost in confidence with a perfume. Make sure you try it when you see it, this is my second bottle and I picked up both at Penha.
