Wear Canadian – CAFA Awards

@christianconfidential  Last Friday, I had the opportunity to attend one of the biggest celebrations in the arts & fashion industry in Canada. The CAFA awards are in their 6th year of highlighting different areas of the industry and this years celebration was the best one yet.

I had the opportunity of attending the awards ceremony dinner and afterparty with the Simons team. Since I was a little boy, I’ve always equated my family trips to Montreal with a visit or two to Simons. In the last few years, I’ve developed a closer relationship to the brand through attending press previews and store openings in Toronto. On every occasion the team has always been so welcoming of me, so to be invited to attend this year’s show with them was a great experience!

I’m not the biggest fan of dressing up on my day to day but for special occasions, I do love to switch things up! I wanted to wear something fashion forward, that made a statement and represented the kind of talent that resides in Canada. I opted to wear this look, from the talented designer Ross Mayer of Mayer Man.

This look is an ode to the past, the present and the future. The classic mixed material bomber is a statement piece and I wanted it to stay that way. I opted to accessorize with pieces that would compliment the bomber and elevate the look like, the cashmere turtleneck, the beret and footwear. I chose these pants, as they were classic yet different with the incorporation of the fringe detailing.

Beret’s are such a hot trend at the moment and I’m in love with the fact that people are embracing it but I chose to incorporate it into my look for its history. I took inspiration from it being a statement piece in the Black Panther movement.

I’m in love with this look and for everything that it stand for so I hope that you guys like it as well. Thank you to the CAFA’s for continuing to support Canadian talent, Simons for the invitation and Mayer Man for helping me put this look together!

The Floral Bomber

The Floral Bomber | Christian ConfidentialAs a fashion blogger, I’m always on the lookout for new pieces and  style inspiration. The other night I was up late browsing the web and came across this floral bomber. Trust me when I say that I very rarely get overly excited about an item of clothing but when I do, I know that I need to have it immediately! To me, this bomber by Jeremy Scott for Adidas is everything! The cut, the attention to detail, the feel, it’s just so on point. As soon as I got it, I had to shoot it and share it with you guys! Being that the print is a little more delicate (floral) in comparison to what I generally wear, I decided to go a little more rugged with the rest of my outfit (loose ripped denim and boss-like kicks) but still playing with a light colour palette to compliment the jacket. This is definitely one of my favourite looks of 2015 so I hope that you guys like it!
