Local Natives - Heavy Feet. Asaf Avidan - Turn. Joey Bada$$ - Waves. (ON REPEAT!)
Its cute when style bloggers are deeply influenced by the italian swerve, but its cuter when the bloggers themselves are italian and personal styling straight from Milan. Although, the obnoxious tie and pocket square mode can get on my nerves when it has an overly traditional intepretation, I do appreciate the masters of it and their knowledge on menswear theory. Anyway, Fabio Attansio is the name and http://www.thebespokedudes.com is the link, be good to yourselves.
In other news, a week ago, I misplaced my favourite cashmere sweater, still havent found it so I decided to ease the pain with two (cheaper-almost-as-soft) ones, love yourselves. :))

“The fashion thing is something I do, and yes it is definitely also becoming a part of myself and my personality. It also doesn’t really feel like a job either: it is a dream or a passion or something. I think there are things I relate to more than fashion though, personal, private things. Like my environment, my family, my friends, you know”

Rich Mnisi is just a superstar, his photography work becomes more and more palatable with each shot, I truly am enjoying his growth within this craft. Its great that amidst the chaos of everyone and anyone being a photographer, stylist, poet/writer or some other obvious creative situation, it is still possible to pick out the genuinely talented (and actually creative). Thanks Bye. P.S if you want to see more of his work, check out Rich Mnisi Photography on facebook! :)
Black x White
Want: Polka-dot silk scarf
I saw a similar piece last year, held it in my hands but walked out the store without it, that day will now be frowned upon, forever. Hopefully, that days luck will grant me a second chance during my next shopping trip!
Navy x Black
This week proved once again that I have an insane obsession with blue, especially navy and this is clearly not something I just recently picked up but an enduring part of who I am (…). The fact that I can put together more than 3 outfits of full on blue states that my attempts to add colour into my closet are actually just lies I tell to get more blue items… I swear it is not a mood thing, well I hope not.
Anyway, during the auntumn winter mens shows I spotted an influx of navy and black combos, more vividly at Valentino (my ultimate favourite). The interesting thing about this combination is the fluidity it has, it almost feels like a monochromatic look but with a deeper poetic depth, also, the idea that this is something that was once frowned upon makes it that much more appealing. You know us young cats (…) and rebellion, best pals.
