Welcome To My Life

18th February 2014
It has been a challenging year in 2013, i’ve accepted a new job in the city and full-time work with blog doesn’t really mix well, much like blending champagne with alcoholic rum for lunch time. As work life has progressed and taken most of my optimum energy — time to me is very previous and I would seize every opportunity to keep this blog up to date.

I’ve decided to make it a little more interesting than ever by taking it to the next level. All a while it has been commercially driven by product reviews and recommendations, runway shows, backstage photographs, advance sneak peeks, buyer event’s, size guide, rare items blog about and etceteras — specialising in the brands that I still love most today, mainly Balmain and Givenchy, blogging with the most passion and love to fill in the missing contents on the net.

But for this year, i’ve thought about a new strategy unlike anything before. It needed much more than a long detailed review and a partially cropped face lookbook — some of you might like to call it ‘Personality’. All those expensive shopping without the frequent chance of expressing my true identity is a wasted opportunity that could contribute extra value to achieve greater work than ever. Therefore after a long thought, I have decided it is the time to expose my lifestyle in hope to create new inspiration one step at a time.

It’s me wearing my favorite Givenchy Rottweiler-Tartan Print Shirt with Givenchy Brown Oversize Wool Shorts and new Givenchy Palladio Chain Sandals! Pre-order or shop similar styles at Givenchy, Luisa Via Roma

Valentino Camouflage Portfolio Clutch

19th October 2013
My current Fall Winter 2013 accessories obsession, the Valentino Camouflage Men’s Clutch. For this season, i’ve became a Valentino fan since the brand introduced it’s rockstud collection, first heard the news from my girlfriend who was obsessed with the Valentino Rockstud women’s shoes, now she has two pairs with the tri-strap – one in pink and another with in strass camo. It is amazing to watch how the accessories collection has continue to evolve throughout this year while retaining it’s iconic elements.
History of The Camouflage
The camouflage or camo is any combination of materials, colouration or illumination used for the purpose of concealment. Military camouflage was first introduced in World War I, it is been used as a battledress and equipment on land, sea and air in every types of terrain ever since. The camouflage has gone through many iterations and colour schemes over the decades and like so much utilitarian military wear before – it has worked it’s way into contemporary fashion. In recent seasons, it’s made the biggest comeback in menswear showing up in everything from outerwear to suits, ties and running shoes.
Valentino Fall Winter 2013 Accessories Clutches
I immediately felt excitement when the first release of the Valentino Camouflage is men’s collection in Spring Summer 2013. Valentino returns to Florence, where the story began in 1962, as always the style is clean and timeless in a collection of sartorial pieces redefining contemporary masculinity. Since then, ton’s of designers has been sending camouflage prints down the runway for their Fall 2013 collection. 
But it seems Valentino is ahead of the competition, the house is known for it’s true exquisite designs. For their current Fall Winter 2013 collection, Valentino utilises a famouglage technique that is obtained from laser-cut leather – large patterns of the camouflage are produced which is then heat sealed and printed for an army effect. The final products are edgy and energising with a colour palette ranging from a rich variety of turquoise, green, blue, black, grey and ivory with splashes of ruby and red.
From small clutches to large-tote bags, the array of items in the line is generous, so far I have seen so many men’s clutches and nothing could be compared with the love of a good camo piece, and seeing a brand known for refined, elegant styles adding a little rockstud to its repertoire is always exciting.
