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.  

What’s that perfume that you wear?

So… I’ve been browsing for new perfumes and I visited Penha to try and purchase a few for the upcoming season.  Here the top 3 that caught my attention and nose. Dylan blue by Versace. Here’s to hoping this whole outfit ends up on the floor wearing the new fragrance Dylan Blue from Versace. The scent has a fresh Citrus vibe that is both masculine and versatile, and most importantly it blends with your natural scent and isn’t obnoxious by any means. If you want a cologne that will make a statement- Dylan Blue is for you. L’Envol Eau de Toilette by Cartier Last year I had an opportunity to try and wear L’Envol by Cartier, an elegant and woody cologne that is sweet, masculine, nocturnal and proper for the dapper gentleman. L’Envol Eau de Toillete is a little fresher and vibrant, however, still maintains a few characteristics of the original. This is a fragrance you don’t wear to the office, but an important cocktail reception or gala, or even a special date. The cologne …

BACK IN BERMUDA | Louis Vuitton

And…we’re back in Bermuda for the 35th America’s Cup Presented by Louis Vuitton. Yes… I’m back, only after three short weeks, and I say this without any complaints. This time I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Island of Bermuda with Louis Vuitton to check out the semi-finals of the America’s Cup. We checked out the races boat-side On board of the gorgeous Spirit of Bermuda. Joining me and the LV team were some of my dear friends, in addition to new ones. We sipped on some champagne while enjoying the oldest race in history and one of the most prestigious events in the world. For the event, I wore some pieces wearing some of my favorite picks from the newest Louis Vuitton America’s Cup collection. Of course, there was some downtime between the races to enjoy the Bermuda beaches. We were fortunate to stay at one of the top-rated hotels on the Island, The Hamilton Princess, which is filled with iconic art pieces and possibly the best restaurant on the island, Marcus. Huge …

ORLEBAR BROWN’s 10

Orlebar Brown is celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year. I have been a loyal fan since the very beginning, If you have been following me since day one, then you have seen me sporting the brand on many of my Instagram posts. I must say I have more Orlebar Brown shorts in my closet than any other brand. My first pair ever is a Gray Malin collaboration. This pair alone has traveled with me all around the Caribbean. I would say that I really consider it to be a personal treasure and a family heirloom, my first born son will inherit these swim trunks. I was fortunate enough to be invited by Orlebar Brown for their celebration in Bermuda. The invitation came from the man himself, Adam Brown. After so many years admiring his work. It was truly such a thrill to meet the man person. He is a true innovator when it comes to designing swimwear for men. While in Bermuda we stayed at the Hamilton Princess, which is one of the best …

RIMINI SLIP ONS | BRUNO MAGLI

New York City is always a good Idea. There’s no place like it, especially during the spring season. During my recent trip to the Big Apple, I test drove the Rimini slip-on sneaker from Bruno Magli’s latest collection.  This summer staple is made up of a foil weave calf leather upper and a rubber cup outsole— so no need to worry about comfort or style since both are present.  Bruno Magli is a synonym of elegant design and impeccable craftsmanship, they’re made in Italy after all. The woven leather sneakers are super comfortable and are the right choice, especially if you’re planning on walking all over downtown, across the Brooklyn Bridge, and around Dumbo too.  They’re super versatile too– and can transition beautifully from a  city look to a resort ensemble while on vacation— plus they can be paired with denim, bermuda shorts, or chinos.  Summer style can be a bit bland when wearing solid linen tops and bermuda shorts on the daily. To spice up your look I would throw on an accessory that has texture, like these guys, and would …

Golfing with Ted Baker

This weekend I took a break from my natural habitat AKA the pool and beach to hit the course in my favorite golf resort on the island, The Links by Divi. For the golfing trip, I got to test drive the new Ted Baker Golf Collection. The sporty-yet-sophisticated collection consists of ombre prints, bold colors and ton of functional elements. The collection parts way from what golfing gear use to be, ill-fitting and prints and patterns that were outdated. The new TB collection is giving golf attire a new and more modern definition. These garments are smart with a modern fit and will improve your game. For my golfing adventure, I went with the Birdy Polo in blue and the PLAYGO polo in red. Both polos are made of stretch cotton for ease of movement, so, not only are you ready to play, but your style game is in check too. I paired my tops with The UNPAR trousers, which are full of innovative details. For starters they’re water-repellent, so in case there is an …
