Summer of Sneaker love

Fairly obvious sneakers have been having an extended fashion moment but this summer is truly insane as collaborations, exotic leather and just sheer genius merge into works of art for my feet.
Nike collaboration with Ricardo Tisci is giving me goosebumps every time I look at them.
The stand out design of Raf Simon for Adidas is bang on with the designer aesthetics.
Versace enters the sneaker game with exotic leather and gold hardware .
So lads have a summer of sneaker love 





Ricardo Tisci for Nike

Raf Simon for Adidas

Look of the day...... color and proportions




Roma..... A different kind of treasure

Sometimes stepping away from the obvious splendor of a famous city to enjoy the small things is what makes a city special.
The delicious macaroon colored cafe with great architectural lines ,
The hard working horse pulling a buggy all day that I named Charlie, wrought iron that wrap so many balconies and stunning squares everywhere..... that is my Roma :)

Vogue sold out...the Jenners win this round

An effing travesty was my first reaction to sighting the "KIMYE" VOGUE cover . It is unbelievable that vogue would put the queen of nothing on its cover ....yes Kanye deserves a vogue cover all by himself but Kim....ewwww and Hamish Bowles doing the interview just shows we are all "black slaves" to quote Kanye.... #yourdreamsarevalidtoo
AW has been protesting that this was all her idea ....please this is your foot in mouth moment

Sneakers every man must own ... Must

Every man must own these classic sneakers before investing in the other realms of psychedelic footwear that the humble sneaker have been turned . The classics as I refer to them are as good as when they were designed 30 to 40 years .
So stock up on Adidas sambas, Converse Chuck Taylors, Puma Slides, Nike AF1, Van Originals

Look of the day

I love everything about this outfit. The shades of green, the subtle camo print, the oversized wallet and the thick soled brogues to ground the look.
Well done Sir

Balmain FW14

Olivier Rousteing put together a luxurious collection for a great house. Using aviation jackets as one of his key inspirations and using trademark embroidery and embellishment to create coveted pieces.  Awesome collection if you have deep pockets ... This will hurt at the bank.
