Athleisure Moment

@christianconfidential

First off, are you guys as into this parka as much as I am?!?! Right before heading to New York for Men’s Fashion Week, I stopped by the COS showroom for some inspiration and I noticed this jacket – I knew that I had to have it! I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it but I knew that it was such an iconic piece that I would make it work. I wanted to keep this look super casual and athletic, so I paired this oversized parka with a classic tank, some white joggers and my new Cortez sneakers (you’ll see me wearing these a lot).

This look won’t be for everyone but if you’re confident and have some height on ya (I’m 6’0 feet), I’d definitely recommend trying to rock something like this. It’s so bad ass and functional at the same time!

NYFW: Men’s Photo Diary

@christianconfidential@christianconfidential

It’s been a little over a week since I’ve been back from New York for Men’s Week and sigh…I wish I was still there. For the last two years, I’ve made attending Men’s Week in Paris a priority but due to a scheduling conflict this season I was unable to make it out there. That being said, I had it in my mind to make it out to New York to check out the action over there and let’s just say it was a trip worth taking!

I love New York in general, so add Men’s Fashion Week into the mix and I knew that it was going to be a great time! The energy, the people, the culture, ugh..it just feeds my soul.

@christianconfidential

This time in  New York I got to stay in the financial district at The Four Seasons hotel (it’s stunning and the service was on point). I attended a couple shows + presentations, some after parties and events, did some shopping, some fine dining and tried out a few fitness classes.

One of the major highlights for me this trip was attending the Bally x Swizz Beatz party at Public. It was literally a mash up of two of my favourite things, fashion and music! Everyone was dressed well, the vibe was on another level and ASAP ROCKY (pictured above) ended up taking the stage for a quick set!

That same night, my friend Jay and I ended up heading over to 1OAK  and 2 Chainz performed as well. Honestly the nightlife in New York is just crazy and you all know, I love me a good party, especially when I’m away haha!

This trip to New York was a complete reassurance to me that I’m on the right path to figuring out my purpose. I may not know exactly what it is as of yet but I know that it’s going to involve fashion, fitness travel and connecting with people. It’s what makes me feel alive and where I feel the most inspired and connected. Thank you for everything New York, I’ll definitely be back soon!

As always, I took some photos along the way for you guys – I hope you enjoy them and thank YOU guys for continuing to explore this thing called life with me!

Ps. I visited Barry’s Bootcamp for the first time and let’s just say it was hands down one of the best work out classes that I’ve taken. If you’re looking for something that’ll challenge you, this is a must try! For those of you that live in Toronto, Barry’s is opening up there first location later this year – I can’t wait!

The Weekend

@christianconfidential Hi guys, I’m back on the blog today with a new style post just in time for the weekend.  This look is totally my vibe right now, it’s clean, it’s casual and has a little dapper twist to it. I’m usually not the person to mix collared shirts with athletic apparel but for this outfit, it just works for me. I paired my oversized collared shirt with a pair of aqua blue track pants and my new ultra boost sneakers to complete the look.  This is that fun outfit that you can wear confidently to brunch, to run errands or to just hang out on a patio with friends sipping rosé.

Ps. Rosé has definitely become my obsession this summer, that and the new album CTRL by SZA!!!

Fall…Is That You?

christian confidential | christian thompsonOkay, okay… don’t hate me but it’s about that time that I start talking about fall fashion on the blog! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE fall – it’s probably my favourite season to dress for but here in Toronto, fall last for about a month and then it’s winter (which 9 /10 times, we don’t see eye-to-eye). I put this look together that you guys seemed to really like on social media – yaaas! Denim + oversized anything are my best friends and play very well together around this time of year. I completed this look with a pair of brown Chelsea boots  that I’m currently obsessed with! If you see me repeat this look a few times, try your best not to judge me haha!

It’s All Good In Soho

christian confidential | soho nycIt’s been a while since I’ve last been in New York and oh gosh, I really did miss it! It’s weird because New York never really comes to mind as a travel destination for me (I’m more of a beach guy) but every time I make it back out here, I’m always happy that I did. This is definitely less of a pleasure trip, as it’s Fashion Week here but it’s important to make a little time for play right??  Yesterday, I spent most of the day in Soho and shot this cozy look. It’s totally me right now, oversized, casual & comfy! I hope you’re into it as much as I am!

Dapper Moments in Le Marais

christian confidential Hi guys, so I’m STILL going through my photos from Paris and wanted to share this look that I wore c/o COS for Men’s Fashion Week! I’ve really grown to love the brand, as I feel that a lot of their collection reflects my aesthetic – clean, minimal and oversized. I wore this outfit to  Sean Suen’s SS17 presentation, which was one of my favourite shows this season! To me, this look was perfect for the occasion – wearing regular dress shirts aren’t always my thing but the oversize twist to this one had me excited to style it. I paired it with some light pleated trousers, rose gold accessories (yes, I said rose gold) and white sneakers – are you into it?

Paris Men’s Fashion Week: Look of the Day

Christian Confidential | Paris I’m back in Paris for my second taste of Men’s Fashion Week! It’s been such a whirlwind already and it’s only been 24 hours since I’ve been in the city. I wanted to give you guys a quick post for my ‘look of the day’. I definitely went for a more conservative yet european look and I’m obsessed with it!  I played with a neutral colour palette as a base and added my new navy trench for some much needed contrast – I hope you guys like it!

The Gazelle: The Classic Three-Stripe Icon

 

christian confidential | adidas originalsIn early fall 2015, I had the opportunity to sit-in on a media presentation at Adidas Canada’s head office and preview what was coming down the pipeline for 2016. As you can probably imagine one of my favourite categories to check out from the brands portfolio was the Originals (good street wear will always be my weakness) and way before the presentation was over I knew Adidas wasn’t playing around with their upcoming releases. One of the key drops that I was excited about for SS16 were these sleek kicks featured here! If you’ve been a fan of the brand, you’re definitely familiar with The Gazelle- a silhouette that came out in the 60’s and has become a three-stripe icon all around the world!

Everyone has their own reason for liking this shoe but for me, it’s because of its versatility. I’m a sucker for a sneaker that’s comfortable, stylish and can be paired with a variety of outfits. The last time I was in Europe, I saw these sneakers paired with suits, ripped denim, joggers, sweatpants & more.  I got myself a pair of the clear onix, white and gold colorway and trust me when I say, they’re currently in heavy rotation!

As much as I love sharing my excitement about dope pieces through words, you all know, I’d much rather show you guys through visuals. My team & I shot this cool fashion clip featuring some of my favourite looks at the moment all worn with The Gazelle’s - take a look at it below and let me know what you think! It’s definitely been a while since we’ve done a fashion video and I’m pretty content with how it turned out! I’ll be sharing details about some of the featured outfits in another post later, so stay tuned for that! christian confidential | adidas originalsIn the meantime, if you’re looking to grab yourself a pair of these kicks head on over to Adidas.ca where they not only offer this colorway but a navy blue, white and gold one too!

Until next time,
