Make It Summer But In Black

@christianconfidential

Hey guys,  guess who’s back with another look! Honestly it feels good to be shooting content again, especially with this amazing weather we’ve been having this week in London! My friend Natasha and I went out for afternoon drinks on a cute terrace in South Kensington, called April’s Cafe, and this was the look I opted for. I wanted something that embraced summer but was still super chic. I went for an all-black look (screams summer, I know) but switched it up by wearing a shirt with a floral/plant print. To me, this was a great way to add a little more fun to my look, rather than playing it safe with a plain black tee or shirt.

I love the way this outfit came together, it’s easy, it’s classy and just totally my vibe at the moment. Check out  a few more pics below!

Biker Portraits With AllSaints

christian confidential | all saintsHi bb’s – I recently collaborated with the popular UK brand AllSaints on a cool social media campaign that I wanted to share with ya! If you’re familiar with the brand you know that they’re notoriously known for their outerwear and minimal + monochromatic aesthetic. The campaign is all about highlighting one of this seasons most coveted item, the biker jacket! I’m the biggest sucker for a dope biker jacket and their Takeo Suede Biker had my name written all over it! It’s light, it’s suede and offered in a colorway (anthracite grey) that totally meshes with my personal style. Here are the images that I shot for the campaign, I hope you guys like them!

Christian Confidential’s Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

 

Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

For many of us, the holiday season can be one of the most hectic times of the year. With all of the decorating, holiday parties, birthdays and work deadlines, you really don’t have that much time left to do all of your holiday shopping. I’ve decided to try and make your shopping task a little easier (at least when it comes to the special men in your life) by putting together what I consider a pretty dope gift guide!Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

1. Nike Air Max 90 Ice – Sneaker Boot $160.00

A great alternative to the standard winter boot that some guys unfortunately still wear. The Air Max 90 sneaker boot is perfect for the young guy living downtown that still wants the style and comfort of his favourite sneaker while being able to stay warm and dry at the same time. They also have great traction and come in four different colorways for you to choose from.

2. Tiffany Somerset Ring $345.00

If he’s a guy that’s into jewellery, you can’t go wrong with this sterling silver ring from Tiffany’s Somerset collection. A great alternative to the classic mens ring that will instantly grab the attention of others making it a conversation piece.Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

3. Givenchy Rottweiler Iphone 5(s) Hardcover Case $102.00

If he’s into making a statement with his iphone accessories, he will love the Rottweiler print case from Givenchy. This is a great accessory for the fashion forward guy that likes to keep it simple but stand out at the same time.

4. Rimowa Classic Flight Cabin Trolley IATA $769.00

This item on the gift guide is for the man in your life that’s always on the go. Whether it be for business or pleasure the Classic Flight Cabin Trolley from Rimowa is the perfect piece of luggage for short trips. Beautiful, reputable and built to last – this is a great start to traveling in style.Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

5. Noble Leather – Yves Saint Laurent $230.00

Another one of my favourite scents from Yves Saint Laurent is, Noble Leather. Sometimes difficult to find and at a slightly higher price point than your standard cologne. If you’re looking for a scent that’s masculine but not overbearing and will set you apart from the crowd this is a pretty safe bet.

6. Talbot Shearling Leather Coat – All Saints $1448.00

It wouldn’t feel right completing a gift guide without including a leather jacket. This Shearling black leather jacket from All Saints is something worth drooling over. It’s edgy, it will keep you warm and priced pretty reasonably for the quality and material. It’s definitely an item worth looking at for the fashion risk taker on your shopping list.

7. Veuve Clicquot – Champagne $68.00

I see suggestion number 7 as the ‘safe’ yet ‘special’ gift to give not only over the holidays, but anytime of the year. Even if he’s not the biggest champagne enthusiast there will always be an occasion worth celebrating that will only seem complete with a bottle of Veuve.

8. Raf Simons High Top Sneakers $659.00

If he’s a sneakerhead he would love to find these bad boys underneath the tree. Black high top leather sneakers with velcro straps give these kicks a little edge over the competition. Rock these with a pair of joggers and an oversized sweatshirt and you’ve got yourself a dope look.

I hope that this list  provided you with a few cool gift ideas to help check off some of the important men in your life!

Chucks & Sweaters | Christian ConfidentialThe weather outside may be frightful but I couldn’t resist putting these grey drop-crotch trousers to good use.  I was craving the comfort of a beautifully knit sweater – paired with my favourite leather-collared denim shirt, this outfit had me feeling crisp & composed.  I threw on some classic white Chuck Taylor’s and went location scouting for the perfect space to shoot this look.  The timeless scholastic feel of this music room tucked away at the University of Toronto definitely brought this look to life!

Fall is such an amazing season to experience the best of Toronto – all of the indulgent & cozy classics that bring out the Canadian in all of us.  This is true for fashion as much as anything else!  The unpredictability of the weather makes layering a must – especially if you’re trying to carry an outfit from day to night.  With this look I layered a basic grey scoop neck t-shirt with one of my favourite cool-weather pieces, a leather vest by Canadian designer Ken Chow.  Tied around my waist is my ‘boyfriend’ shirt, a well-loved plaid number from Club Monaco, rocked with my favourite All Saints denim, a feathered fedora & a pair of shades courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana.

The luxe feel of leather is as exciting as it is timeless:  a great leather vest is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe this fall and have in rotation season after season.  Personally, I love the added edge it gives my outfits – it’s such an added confidence boost.  Let’s just say that it brings out the bad boy in me so to speak… ;)
