The Homies


@CHRISTIANCONFIDENTIAL @CHRISTIANCONFIDENTIALSo… it legit feels like it’s been forever since I’ve last posted but here I am with some new material for you guys! Last week I was working on a cool lifestyle project with a Toronto based home interior company (Merchant Sons) that allowed me to involve some of my close friends in the process. Jason and Daniel aka my brothers and I spent an afternoon with a camera crew visiting some of the hidden gems in my neighbourhood. I love ‘working’ with these guys because it literally feels like we’re just hanging out. Daniel always has a new story to share and Jason is always full of positive energy.

Our last shoot location for the day was at a minimally designed coffee shop called, PUB PRK (Public Park). The Café  had a dope concrete wall across from it that I noticed and instantly wanted to shoot on. Earlier in the day, I styled the guys (and myself) in some of my favourite casual pieces and once we wrapped for the day we shot for a bit. The thing that I like most about these looks are that they’re all lit on their own but when they’re all captured together, the vibe is brought to another level. Each look is different but has an athletic, casual, spring vibe to them that ties them all together.  Stay tuned to see the final project featured on the blog later this week  but in the meantime enjoy the fashion aspect of it!

Hometown Flow

christian confidential | christian thompsonSo, I’m back in Toronto after a whirlwind of fun during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris and yes – still blonde. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it, I think I may keep it for a while longer. It’s still unbearably cold here (I’m a little dramatic, I know), so I put this cozy look together that I hope that you guys will like. I’ve been really into colour lately, like REALLY into it as you can probably see from this outfit. In my opinion, my coral sweatshirt gives this street look more life as opposed to a more muted colour alternative. It might not be for everyone but right now it’s definitely doing it for me.

Winter-White With Armani Exchange

christian confidential | armani exchangeIt’s been a while since I’ve shared a new style post (forgive me), so hopefully you guys like this one! I hosted a cocktail party for Armani Exchange the other week and put this look together, incorporating items from their latest a/w collection. I decided to go the whole winter-white route for my top and bottoms, while adding a pop of subtle colour with my footwear (I told you guys, you’d see these boots a lot haha). This look really does it for me, it’s not something I’d wear everyday (I’m the worst at keeping my whites clean) but it’s definitely a look I’d wear on a special occasion!

Ps. To all those that came out to hang out with me that evening, thank you!

Street Style In Yorkville

christian confidential | christian thompsonSo, I’m back this week with another style post that I think you guys will love (at least, I really do haha)! This look incorporates a lot of my favourite pieces at the moment: chelsea boots, destroyed denim, an oversized sweatshirts and a trench coat… yes a trench coat! I could’ve left the coat out of the equation but I think it brings the look up a notch and gives it more of an edge. I had to find a cool location to shoot this outfit and some how I stumbled on a cool grungy alleyway in Yorkville (if you’re familiar with this area, you know it’s not that easy to find) that totally matched my aesthetic.  This season, I see myself experimenting a bit more with colours and shapes so expect to see more variation. Will you guys be taking any chances with your looks this season?

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!

Change The Game

I’m back today with a casual style post that I’m sure you guys will be in to. It’s actually crazy to see how much Kanye West has been able to inspire street culture in such a short amount of time. Love him or hate him (I love him, obviously), you can’t deny his style influence. This look was definitely inspired by him, from the colour palette, to the fit, it’s vey Yeezy-esque. I grabbed this sweatshirt and joggers from Zara during a sale, the other day. I see myself playing with these tones in the fall, so to me, they were good purchases. I decided to pair them with my beige Tubulars from Adidas and a cap from Project X Paris. You’ll catch me in an outfit like this while running errands, doing stylist pulls or having a cozy day with friends.

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,

Style Obsession: Jumpsuits

christian confidential | Jumpsuits I wanted to share with you guys my latest style obsession – men in jumpsuits. I first introduced this trend on my site during my stay in Paris for Men’s Fashion Week earlier this year and I’ve been hooked on it ever since! My first jumpsuit was a denim one that can sometimes be a little too heavy to wear during the summer months, so I went on the hunt to find a lighter more breathable one. This khaki multi fabric short sleeve jumpsuit is lit on every level. I like my jumpsuits to fit loose so I went up a size and kept the look simple with minimal accessories and a pair of white kicks. I haven’t seen many guys wearing them out in Toronto as of yet but this trend is huge in Europe and one that I’m totally down to jump on (no pun intended)!
