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,

Flannel Vibes

Christian Confidential | Christian ThompsonIf you pay attention to men’s fashion, you’ve probably noticed an increase in the amount of flannel being carried by your favourite brands or boutiques. I can’t really tell you who started this trend or why all of a sudden it’s becoming more and more popular but I’m not complaining. I love flannel, not all the time but if it’s worn right it can definitely bring your look up a notch. Flannel always makes me think of the west coast and the 90’s, which in my opinion are both amazing. I paired my vintage  flannel shirt with a graphic tee, some khaki joggers and my white huaraches. Super clean, super casual and oh so wavy! Continue Reading…

Christian Confidential | Style Post Hi guys – so I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. I styled this ever so comfy yet dope look (in my opinion), that you could probably catch me wearing any day of the week. I’ve always been a fan of graphic tees but tend to struggle in finding the perfect ones – I swear there’s an art to it. Like most things that I like, it has to be the ‘right’ everything for me to rock it or I won’t mess with it at all. While I was in Paris, I picked up this YEEZUS Tour t-shirt and a couple other graphics tees from Eleven Paris. I threw on a pair of loose ripped denim, a grey hoodie, my olive bomber and a pair of roshes to complete the look! 

I hope you guys like it!

Paris

Paris | Christian ConfidentialHi guys, I hope that life has been treating you well these days. I’m definitely still on a high from my trip to Paris. It’s my third time traveling to this beautiful city and I must admit that every time I visit, I fall more & more in love.  I feel like everyone has a place in the world that makes them feel extra special inside, and for me, it’s Paris!

This trip was extra exciting, as it was the first time that I’d be attending shows for Paris Men’s Fashion Week…which to me, is huge! Paris is legit the fashion capital of the world  and to be able to see how things are done over there was definitely a goal of mine personally and professionally. I’ll get more into the shows and all that good stuff in my upcoming post but in the meantime I wanted to share some of my favourite moments and places while away. I decided to switch things up and bring over my Instagram aesthetic to the blog for this post!
Ps… I just want to say a huge thank you to you guys for your continued support!  Honestly, these experiences wouldn’t be possible without my readers and it truly means a lot to me. If there’s anything that you want to see more of, just let me know!
