To start, I am so honoured to be invited not only once but for the second year around, to attend the Dolce and Gabbana haute couture events. This summer the events were held at Palermo, the capital city of the beautiful Italian island of Sicily.
I was so excited about attending this special event again, but even more about visiting Palermo. Although it isn’t a highly advanced or a luxurious city, but the culture and history it has just made it very appealing.
During this week, there were quite a few different events happening everyday, along side with the pop up DG store, bar, and restaurant. After we freshen up from our flight, we thought to visit the DG pop up store. It was located by the port, with a large spacious store, and a Tropical Italian outdoor bar and restaurant. The store not only stocks their latest ready to wear clothes, but also specially made for this summer event outfits as well. One thing I loved from last summer and was looking forward to was the fabric shopping bag you get from any purchase at the pop up store. It is a great little souvenir to remember this trip by.
During the new year of 2017, I decided to take a trip to the other side of the world and experience the differences they have to offer.
To make the most out of this trip, we decided to experience it through a road trip style. We rented a car and drove to all the areas that we wanted to see. Well, we did take a few flights from city to city or it will take months to visit them all. We started off in Sydney, Australia. In my mind Australia is always a sunshine filled place, with beautiful beaches and Koala hanging on all the palm trees. In parts, I was mostly right about the sun and beaches, but we did have to enter the zoo to see the Koala. That was one of my favourite activates we did during our time in Sydney. I was able to see and learn about Koala, and even able to take a selfie with them too! However, we were not permitted to hold them as interacted by the keeper. Apart from the Koala, we also managed to see the Kangaroos, and amongst other very interesting animals.
Of course if one arrives in Sydney, one must see and visit the Sydney Opera House. After doing the most tourist full activities, we went and stroll around the city before having a boat trip dinner. It was a great place to see the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge from day light to night light. With live music and delicious seafood, the night was made.
With the holiday season coming soon, I am sure many like me are starting to think of what to give. Here are 6 gift ideas that are great for the everyday men.
Got a new pair of glasses from Giorgio Armani the other day. It is both sunglasses and normal glasses. This vintage looking glasses is beautiful and the minute I saw it in the store window, I just have to take it home! It comes in two colours, a golden version and the blacken version, along with two leather cases. The simplicity of the design adds to the elegance of its look. The darken glass is held by a metal frame which is easily put on and take off from the regular glasses frame. Even if you don't wear glasses, this Italian made one will make you want to. It's really frame of life as it says!
Let me know what you think in the comments! Have a dapper day!
Timberland boots are a pair of shoes that most guys would have. It's great for outdoor activities or just a casual walk in the park! Recently, I have made a custom pair of Timberland boots and it's here. I was surprised at how easy it was to order one and how personalized it can be. From the color to the thread, you can choose your favorite. If you love Timberland boots, you should definitely create your own pair. (This pair was ordered from a Timberland Store in Hong Kong, with very friendly staffs!)
Here is what I had done! Let me know what you think and if you want more info, comment below.
Have an awesome day!
Try something new and don't be afraid of being different and out of trend. As long as you like what you wear that's what matters! Tell me in the comments what you like to wear most and what have you try
As summer is ready upon us, I thought I would share some of my favourites summer essentials!
First, with the shining sun greeting us daily, it is the best time to take out a cool pair of sunglasses! I love my Ray-bans, but I recently discovered Han Kjobenhavn's handmade sunglasses, and I could not put them away. The amber frame creates a glow under the summer light, making it a great accessory for any outfit!
When one says summer, I think colours. This is why I have been wearing my new Daniel Wellington Watch with the Classic Nottingham Wristband. The colourful nylon material reflecting a casual, but elegant look that can work for a day at the beach or a fancy garden party.
Speaking of colours and accessories, I always like to have some form of beads or leather wristband. Straight from my most recent shopping cart, I have got myself a blue leather wristband. It's a mix of light and dark blue leather strips weaved together. It's brighter then what I normally wear, but I thought it would be great for the summer look.
Finishing off my list of favourites, is a nice pair of espadrilles shoes. These two tone shoes makes the hot summer days feel so much more cooler and free. It is simple and easy to wear, and when you pair it with some chinos or some shorts, and your all set for the day!
