Casual Meets Luxe


So, this will be my last street style post from my New York trip! I am all caught up and ready for my next adventure, which happens to be, this weekend! I’m heading to New Orleans for the first time and I’m hella excited. It’s crazy because I think the part that gets me the most excited is the fact that I have no clue what to expect! I haven’t traveled somewhere new since Los Angeles in October (so nuts). As always, I’ll be documenting my trip for you guys so you’ll hear all about it (good or bad) haha!

Anyways, back to this look. I really like the way this outfit came together. The sneakers make it casual, yet the jacket gives it a more luxe vibe all at the same time. If I were to go on a lunch date in Soho, I would say this would be my perfect outfit!

Plaid in Soho


I’ll never turn down a chance to visit New York and I’ll never visit New York without spending at least a day in Soho. There’s something about this area that really resonates with me and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The architecture, the colour palette, the boutiques, the cafés, the restaurants, I just can’t get enough!

I was in a mood this day and felt like dressing a little different than my usual ensembles. I got these plaid pants  from H&M before heading to New York  and thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to break them in. I love the way that the outfit came together and Soho made for the perfect back drop to capture these photos – I hope that you guys enjoy them!

NYFW 17 Photo Diary

christian confidential | NYFW 17New York Fashion Week… (sigh) where do I even begin? I told you guys that I was originally set to be in New York for a cool project that I was filming that coincided with Fashion Week (Women’s). I decided to extend my stay in the city to explore, shop and see a few more shows + presentations. I’ve only been to Fashion Week in New York once before which was a lot of fun but this time around the whole experience was kicked up to another level.

One thing that I’ve learned when it comes to  traveling + work is that, it’s so important to have a great team with you and good friends (Shayna, Sean, Jay + Vanessa) – it really makes the experience so much better! From attending shows, to shooting street style, to presentations + appointments, late dinners to the after parties… there was never a dull moment.

As always, I had my camera with me + iPhone 7 (the camera changed my life, review coming shortly) documenting as much of my time away as I could. Keep scrolling down to see some of my favourite moments.


Shows + Presentations included in this post:

Club Monaco, Lacoste, Nina Tiari, J.Crew, Vivienne Tam, Chanel

September in New York

christian confidential | new yorkChristian Confidential | NYCNew York  – the city that never sleeps… isn’t that the truth! About two weeks ago, I came back from my first  NYFW experience – which was L-I-T! New York is a lot of fun anytime of the year but add in the chaos that is Fashion Week and everything is brought to another level! From attending shows, to meetings with brands, to the after parties, there was barely any time to sleep (thank God for eye cream haha).  I spent a lot of time in Soho, which has become my new favourite day time hang out (sorry Park Ave) and the Meatpacking district at night… Le Bain anyone? I put together a list of places that I’d recommend checking out, the next time you’re in New York & snapped a few pics to share with you guys!

To Eat: Mr. Chow –  for the food , Tao – for the atmosphere , Jack’s Wife Freda – for brunch, Freds Madison Avenue – a quick bite + drink post shopping!

To Lounge:  NOMO SohoI love everything about this place, I always have the best time there! Le Bain – They have a jacuzzi by the dance floor  that people ACTUALLY use and the view from their rooftop is vibes!

To Party: Electric Room,  Up & Down,  The Box – it might be a lot for some people but it’s so much fun!

To Shop:  Barney’s - retail heaven, Nike Lab – for my swoosh obsessed folks, Opening Ceremony – If you’re street style obsessed, this is a must!

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!

New York City w/ Adidas Originals

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetA few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to head out to New York City for the global launch of the NMD sneakers by Adidas Originals. Two days in Soho, learning about kicks, a party and having free time to explore my surroundings sounds like the perfect Break From Toronto,to me. New York City | Christian ConfidentialNew York is that magical city where no matter how many times you visit there will always be something new to discover. The NMD shoe was inspired by street culture and New York was the perfect place to launch it. Whenever I search for street style inspiration the first two places that come to mind are New York and Paris. The NMD was designed for the the wanderer, the urban traveler, someone that appreciates the old but is always looking for what’s next. I don’t know about you but it sounds like these sneakers were made for our generation. This is the first release from the NMD series and from the looks of it, things are about to get real LIT. Check out some of my favourite snaps and a few of my recommendations next time you’re visiting Soho.

New York Street Style | Christian ConfidentialHey guys, here’s a short style post that I shot last week while working in New York City. One of the things that I love about traveling is the fact that you’re usually forced outside of your comfort zone. It should come as no surprise that my team and I definitely follow a certain pattern or theme when it comes to the content that we create and let’s just say New York didn’t make it easy for us haha! Like I mean, do clean plain walls exist in Soho?! I don’t think so!  We shot this look while out  exploring the neighbourhood on our first day. I’m really into anything longline right now and I love this longline jacket I recently got from my friends over in Europe. I wore it over a black cape, and a grey sweatshirt with some ripped denim and a fresh pair of high top kicks. Stay tuned for my full NY recap post!
