Athleisure Vibes // ECCO Cool 2.0

christian confidential | christian thompson

Even though there’s currently some snow on the ground in Toronto, it’s time to start thinking about adding some new items to our wardrobe for spring! For the majority of 2017, I’ve been all over the whole athleisure look and I definitely foresee it continuing. I’ve been doing a lot of browsing on the internet lately and putting together some style boards to get a better sense of what I’ll need to buy to start the season off right, which I’ll share with you guys at a later date. That being said, I recently learned about a newly launched line of sneakers from my friends over at  ECCO Canada called ECCO Mens Cool 2.0 GTX Textile, that I was pretty amped to test out! Two main features about these shoes that make it a perfect spring option is that it’s waterproof and its breathability. You guys know me, so… as important as key features are to me, a good sneaker has to also hold its own within the style department as well. I got my hands on a pair of the all-white C00l 2.0’s and put them to the test by pairing them with this monochrome look. A basic oversized hoodie, a long-line tank, some track pants and high knee socks! I think they paired pretty well, don’t you?

Shadow Play

Maniere De Voir | Christian Confidential  Hi bb’s – I hope that this week is off to a good start for you all. I’m back with a short style post for you guys that might be a little different from what you’re used to from me. The weather is FINALLY starting to warm up in Toronto and with that being said I’m taking full advantage of being able to shoot outside for longer periods of time. I’ve been really into shadows and playing with lighting these days and this is my latest attempt at it! I’m wearing a super comfy track suit courtesy of my friends from the UKManiere De Voir. It’s the detailing of this look that got me to wear it along with the fact that it has a total old school vibe.  It’s the perfect look to rock to and from the gym and to lounge around in!

Denim Essentials

Christian Thomposn | Christian Confidential In Toronto, we’re still transitioning from winter to spring even though it has technically been spring for some time now…sigh. I put this look together that I feel gives off a warm-ish vibe but is also heavy enough to wear with these up and down temperatures (canadian problems). I’ve always been a sucker for denim jackets, it’s definitely a staple in my closet that I’m sure you guys will be seeing me in a lot this season. I decided to pair this jacket that I got from Forever21, with a white sleeveless sweatshirt, cream-coloured ripped denim and a pair of huaraches. To be honest, this look was built off of all basics or as I usually call them ‘essentials’. They’re the items that you shouldn’t feel bad about purchasing because they’re super versatile and you’ll be able to get your fair share of wears out of them. This look is something, you’d easily find me wearing running around the city, grabbing lunch with a friend and or doing work at Soho House.  Continue Reading…

Dreaming of the Hamptons | Style Post

Stripe Shirts + DenimLately I’ve been dreaming more and more about traveling. It’s been a little while since I’ve been away and just had some serious R&R time. A friend and I were doing some research on places to visit in the summer and the Hamptons kept coming up. I started looking at photos and got inspired to put this look together.  Classic, stylish and clean cut seems to be the aesthetic that people tend to follow when getting dressed up in the Hamptons. I opted for a striped oxford shirt, clean wash denim and a pair of chucks to give me the same feel & look. Stripe Shirts + DenimStripe Shirts + DenimStripe Shirts + DenimWhat I’m Wearing
