The Moto Jacket | Christian ConfidentialLast summer I did a test shoot for Diesel Canada in this beautiful moto jacket & had been craving it ever since.  It’s soft, supple & has become a mild obsession.  Needless to say, it wound its way into my closet and has started to take over my Instagram account.  The fitted cut, ribbed shoulder detailing & eye-catching, chromed zippers make this jacket a definite conversation starter.  Dressed up or down, it’s always a win.

The Blazer | Christopher Bates

christopher Bates | Christian ConfidentialBlue is big this Spring-Summer, which is exciting because it’s an easy colour to incorporate into most wardrobes.  More timeless than other recent bright-colour trends, blue is also a colour that you can comfortably invest in.  This blazer, by up and coming Canadian designer Christopher Bates, is an easy add to your closet that will go the distance.  It’s cool & energetic, with a light textured construction that will be much appreciated during those steamy Summer nights.  I kept it approachable with a pair of ripped jeans & tanned leather shoes from Lacoste.

Razon | Christian ConfidentialOn a recent trip to Miami I had the pleasure of meeting with Sebastian Leguizamon, one of the creators of Razon eyewear, an inspiring up-and-coming brand that is about to help push Miami’s homegrown design scene to the next level.

Sporting a refined, elegant, and almost entirely wooden form, Razon eyewear draws inspiration from Miami’s own transformative design culture.  Walking around the Wynwood Art District, Sebastian really sold us on his passion for the brand & the lifestyle he feels it represents.

Razon | Christian ConfidentialRazon | Christian Confidential Razon | Christian ConfidentialRazon | Christian ConfidentialRazon | Christian ConfidentialAlthough I could see myself taking home any of the three available colours, I must admit that I think the matte black version is in a class of its own.  And if it’s more than great style that you’re looking for, Razon has partnered with Eyejusters to help supply reading glasses to those in need – we love it when we see great brands get behind worthy causes!

Razon is set to debut their first style at Lou Lou Vie March 26th during Miami’s Winter Music Conference – if you’re lucky enough to be in town, be sure to check them out!  In the meantime, be sure to check out their official website seetherazon.com which goes live March 10th.

Today’s look is all about keeping it clean & simple.  I feel like you can never go wrong with a denim shirt and I love these joggers – the standard khaki is brought a little fashion forward with the addition of an elastic cuff.  With some leg to show it was easy to choose a pair of white Chuck’s – bright & white they kept everything right.  This is a great look for a relaxed setting – brunch, a movie date or even a house party.

You can find both the denim shirt and the joggers on canada.forever21.com

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!

The Floral Print Sweatshirt | Christian Confidential It’s been hard to miss how popular floral patterns have become as we (fingers-crossed!) head into the spring season.  The colourful & bright pattern has been – wait for it – springing up everywhere I look.  This patterned sweatshirt from Forever 21 is bold & eye-catching, definitely the kind of piece to build an outfit around.  Mellowed out with faded black denim jeans, boots, leather snapback and a black bomber jacket (also Forever 21), this is a stand-out day look that does double duty as a great casual date outfit.

IMG_5127Between modelling and bar-tending I’ve come to have a love/hate relationship with the all-black outfit.  For all the elegant simplicity of it, I always just feel like I’m either about to go to a casting call or start a shift – definitely not something you want in the back of your mind right before a night out.  To bring out the ‘edge’ of an all-black look, try mixing fabrics & materials – a little leather can add a lot of personality and keep you from being mistaken for the waiter at your next event.

IMG_5124This lambskin leather top by Krane Design was definitely love at first sight – the oversized fit & side zipper detailing give it a one-of-a-kind look & definitely make a statement.  Paired with some skinny jeans for balance & a pair of suede boots I think it’s a great quick & easy look – just like an all-black outfit should be!

Forever 21 x Christian Confidential My first big announcement of 2014 is our latest partnership with Forever 21!  They’ve taken me on as an ambassador for their men’s division and I couldn’t be more excited.  Over the next couple of months you’re likely to see more of their work represented here which I don’t think anyone will mind.  Some of their latest & greatest is definitely worth a look!

Forever 21 x Christian Confidential This denim jacket is from their current release and I think it’s definitely a quick & easy yes-please item.  The versatile, removable hood lets you change up the look, adding longevity to an already great buy.  For this outfit, I’ve paired the jacket with a great pair of ‘Sure Shot’ Camo pants from Zanerobe.

For all the downsides of winter in Toronto there are also some serious pleasures that come with all of the snow – curling up fireside in a great sweater with a cup of hot chocolate is not a bad way to wait out even the worst weather.  I think that heavy knit sweaters will always be in style in Canada simply because our climate demands them – I tend to stock up as much as I can in November and then just live in them until Spring arrives, not the most creative I’ll admit but completely acceptable during the deep-freezes we’ve been going through.  This cream coloured sweater from H&M is both stylish & reasonably priced, proof that these essentials can keep you warm without burning holes in your pockets.  Definitely win-win.
