I Love Horses

I find horses graceful, glorious creatures. There are so many things that are perfect about them; the way they are put together, the way they move, their fluid bodies and shining coats, the way they smell, their velvet noses and ticklish ears.

I find every one of them fascinating, different. Some horses are just simply magnificent. They are beautifully bred, handsome creatures with lots of attitude and character.

Why We Are Happier During Summer

There's something about waking up to sunshine, birds chirping, and warm air that puts many of us in a better mood. But why do we notice such a shift in our feelings and emotions when the seasons change? It turns out that there actually are scientific reasons you're happier in the summer; the warm weather and your sunny mood are no coincidence. It's rather common to feel more satisfied during the hotter, brighter months, and when this season gives way to the longer, darker days of winter (depending on where you live, of course), we'll once again experience a shift.

So what is it about summer that puts us so at peace? Why are we so much happier this time of year? Here's what we know:

1. Our Sleeping Habits Change Due To Light Exposure

The number of hours of daytime and nighttime have been found to have an effect on how and when we sleep. One study compared Norway (a country with large seasonal variation) to Ghana (a country with little seasonal variation).

2. Our Eating Habits Change In The Summer, Too

There are a couple of possible explanations for this one. One of the more simple reasons is that with the holidays of the winter seasons, certain types of foods are more abundant and frequent. But it goes deeper than that: It could actually come down to biology — our bodies' primitive instinct is to stockpile and store up for the winter months ahead. One study found that both our eating habits and our body weight change by season, with people consuming on average 86 more calories each day in the fall, compared to spring. Fall also brought more fatty foods than spring. None of this is to say that the foods we eat in the winter are "worse" than the foods we eat in the summer, by the way; they're just different, and they affect us in different ways.

3. Sunshine Can Be Great For Our Bodies

It goes without saying that there are very real, very scary risks associated with sun exposure, and that protecting yourself from harmful UV rays is tantamount. But sunlight is also quite vital to our health and happiness, and when you use it correctly, the benefits are significant. For instance, when you get sunlight, your body produces vitamin D from cholesterol, which helps your body absorb calcium. This is important for our bone health.

The Power of Red
IMG_2477.JPG

Red: it signifies power, boldness, and confidence. Whether you’re choosing lipstick or attire, don’t grab a the daring hue unless you’re feeling adventurous and want to make a statement. The color Red (it deserves to be capitalized) represents all things emphatic – stop signs, fire trucks and the #1 used emoji of all time: the red heart . You know me, I gotta go deeper than just making it all about what I have on…outfit details alone are boring, right?  Let’s dive into the psychology behind it. Red is a powerful color, so use its energy to communicate the emotion. It will be seen and heard; make no mistake! The color is completely contradictory and extreme, so it’s associated with superhero powers, danger, fury, or extreme love and passion.

The Floral Shirt

The face of men’s fashion is changing. The wardrobe of the modern male population has gone from the classic grey to the extremely alluring floral patterns. When it comes to wearing the bold and vibrant floral print, the art of pulling off this edgy look is something every man needs to learn. For all the men who are planning to go floral this bikini season, listed below are tips that may come handy for you. The floral appearance from head to toe is a bit tricky to pull off. Not every man can look dapper in the bold and vibrant patterns. Thus, it is advisable to contrast the shade with solid colors. Either wear a floral dress shirt or a bottom featuring the sassy print. You can even pair the button down with denim shorts. Nothing can beat the look of a man sporting a dress shirt with the white shorts. Floral printed shirt looks best with black jeans. Other than this, even you are wearing a floral coat, then, make sure that the shirt features solid color. The combination that contrast each other will make you stand out from rest of the mass.

A white men's shirt is the staple item you can never own enough of. A key piece for your wardrobe! For a spring look, you can go a little simpler with your outfit, making sure not to neglect the accessories that can help pull everything together. Grab a pair of pants, either tailored cotton or slim fit. Finish off with some white plimsolls and some light-weight sunglasses to achieve a spring vibe to your classic, put together look. I chose mine from Antony Morato.

Total white looks can be fun! And thats completely true. Lately I find myself wearing suits all the time or leather jackets, so this time I wanted to wear something more fun. So I chose my white Pepe Jeans London Jacket and paired it with white jeans and white T-shirt.

My New Etro Peisley Run Shoes

Suit: Armani / Shoes: Etro Paisley Run

A few weeks ago and very unexpected I received a package in my house by Etro! I opened it and I couldn’t believe that inside the package was the pair of shoes that I have been obsessed with since they released them! The Paisley Run shoe! Designed as a common project between men’s and women’s collections, the Paisley Run sneakers are inspired by hiking shoes and made from jacquard fabric with a Paisley motif from the brand’s archives. I felt in love with them from the day I saw them and I can not stop wearing them! You can find them here.

Art Is A Form Of Expression

Black Pants: Versace / Black Tshirt: Massimo Dutti / Black Jacket: Armani

Art is an expression made visible by a form. The expression contained in the form is an attempt to translate the unnamed and the unknown. Intrinsic to our existence as humans is our quest to create meaning, and art allows that process to take place. Making meaning involves understanding our surroundings and marking our experiences. Art, at its root, is an expression and the artist is an expresser, translating in order to create meaning. Art expresses and translates, art acknowledges and reveals, art transfers and art intervenes. Art is an expression—an expression of feeling, belief, and character. The simplicity of that sentence is rather deceptive and seems tidier than its implications. Just the statement that art is an expression is complex and raises questions: What does art express? Why does art express? How does art express?

THE STATEMENT KNIT
Total Outfit by: Pepe Jeans London

When you hear the word “sweater,” what do you first visualise? A grey, greenish, navy or brown-hued, chunky knit combination - slightly baggy and oversized - automatically surfaces somewhere in your mind. Symbolically, it is warmth for a chilly day condensed down into a single garment that’s cut perfectly for wearing over a button-down shirt or roll-neck. The statement knit, a trend that caught our eye roughly a year ago, obliterates all that. Forget about cable knits; the finer the gauge, the better. With texture taking a back seat, it opens up the gates for colours, patterns, prints and graphics: If you can see it on a tee, bomber, or ski jacket, it’s now on a sweater, too.

Winter Well Lived With The Grey Goose Family
IMG_9097.JPG

Hello everyone,

A few weeks ago I had the chance to be reunited with my Grey Goose family again. This time we headed to the mountains to enjoy the wintery slops and of course a lot of Grey Goose drinks. The family was very excited and we all really enjoyed being together again. We had the opportunity to do some ski, enjoy the local food and do some spa. This time I will let pictures talk instead of me. Take a look at the following pictures and drink responsibly.

Tom Tailor Vibes

Blue, in general, is typically associated with elements such as the sky and ocean. But beyond that it’s a color that symbolises loyalty and strength. It is a calming color and one people might turn to if trying to relax.

When it comes to cobalt blue, which dates back to the 8th and 9th centuries, it is a darker shade of blue and one that started out being used often in Chinese porcelain.

And in terms of cobalt blue in fashion, it’s an incredibly fun, yet elegant, bold color to wear in the warm and cool months and great with all skin tones.

I love blue thats why I chose this total blue Tom Tailor looks which compliment my skin tone so much. A classic blue shirt with a classic blue pant is the perfect combo to look always effortless stylish.

A Sunny Sunday

Jeans and a T-shirt is the most basic outfit known to man, the most comfortable to wear, and thus one of the hardest to pull off. Because when you're only wearing two pieces of clothing and both of them are the most widely produced menswear items on the planet, finding the perfect versions of each—and wearing them together—requires the ability to know what fits your body best. It also requires you to know what tee goes with what jeans best, and which colors and washes just won't jive. Luckily, I found mine favorite at the moment by Pepe Jeans London.

The Ideal Christmas Cocktail Party Look
DSC02209.jpg

When the cocktails are a-flowin’, the suit separates should still be showin’. For cocktail attire, look to more relaxed tailoring, and embrace the split.

Try a blazer and trouser combination in navy, grey or black. See cocktail attire as the perfect opportunity to mix fabrics and colours. 

Then, pair with slim-fit trouser separates or chinos in a dark hue. Add a collared shirt, based out by a leather brogue, a buttery Chelsea boot or this season’s footwear favourite — the penny loafer.

Depending on the event, you may be able to go open neck.

Don’t forget to wear your favourite watch. I choose the Rado DiaMaster Petite Seconde!

Essentials you need for your date night wardrobe

Often, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with a girl you want to get to know a bit better. You strike whilst the iron is hot and find yourself going on a date sooner than expected, which means you need to dress as well as act the part. What you wear will be the first thing she notices about you. You should always be prepared to have your attire discussed as much as the merits of your personality and etiquette when she rejoins her friends. Choose a nice well fitted pair of blue trousers, a grey jacket, white shirt, black oxfords and pay attention to the watch! Choose a minimal leather strapped watch like my Rado DiaMaster Petite Seconde.

The Antony Morato Camel Coat

Total Look: Antony Morato

The camel coat is the most eye-catching outer garment in menswear. Winter metropolitan streets and avenues are crowds of blues and greys; smart, but extremely uniform. The camel coat is expressive, and should therefore be used sparingly. It is not an ‘everyday’ coat, but one which should be used on special occasions and with special outfits. It goes without saying that it is far higher maintenance than darker coats – spots and splashes will be more evident throughout wet periods, so save it for those beautiful crisp sunny-but-frosty mornings. Find mine at the Attica City Link.

Casual outfits can be stylish as well.

Follow the rules below to impress:

  1. Wear well-fitted clothes.

  2. Wear some kind of accessory - a bracelet, a chain or a stylish watch.

  3. Wear a jacket with details ( like my US Polo ).

  4. Trim your beard, and keep it well-styled.

  5. Your footwear needs to match your attire, and suit your personality.

  6. Do not be afraid of color. Wear what suits your skin tone, lifestyle and professional decorum.

  7. If you are transforming/upgrading your style, do it gradually. Change one element at a time. It gives you a chance to assess what really blends well with your personality.

Knitwear Addiction by Pepe Jeans

Crew neck jumpers are essentially endless when creating a look tailored to your own style. Additionally,  the crew neck for sure, is built for layering. Essentially crowning it as the best jumper for many modern man. Whether it’s autumn or spring, our own recommendation is to layer your knit with a touch of denim, especially if you’re opting for a chain or jacquard knit. If you want to casual-down your outfit for maximum comfort, then don’t be afraid to loose the jacket and switch the shoes.

Straps vs. Bracelets
IMG_0244.jpg

Nothing can change the look of a watch more than the strap or bracelet you choose to wear. From dressy to casual, tough to delicate and metal to leather to rubber to fabric, your choices are nearly endless. Your options are limited perhaps only by your taste and sense of what looks good on your wrist.

If you prefer the smart casual style or you need a watch for the glam nights out, then you should go for a watch with a strap. Bracelets will fit in some outfits and occasions too, but my favorite is a watch with strap. I would suggest you to go for an all-time classic black strap that suits everything like mine, Rado DiaMaster Petite Seconde. 

If you are the type of guy who is sporty and always on the go, a watch with a bracelet is what will suit you the best. Bracelets are a popular option, especially for situations where moisture – water or sweat – may come into play.
