Paris, Street Style

Paris Day 2

christian thompson | paris Last season during Paris Fashion Week I went for a total euro-vibe but this time around I wanted to do something a little more street. For the shows and presentations, I’ve been styling my outfits with more colour, oversized pieces and a little more edge. Today, I decided to go for something a little more casual and on the retro side. I’m totally obsessed with this look and I hope that you guys like it too!

Even though it’s super cold over here, the energy around the city is so lit and I’m having the best time!  I’m off to grab a bite at Hôtel Costes and see where the night takes me (hopefully, I’ll have a story for you tomorrow)!

Paris Day 1

christian confidential | paris fashion weekchristian confidential | christian thompsonThree weeks into 2017 and I’m in Paris for Men’s Fashion Week – I really can’t complain! I absolutely love this city, it’s edge and style just completely moves me. I’m not sure if you noticed but recently, I decided to go BLONDE! I’ve wanted to try this for a while now and finally just said fuck it, lets just do it! I had to find the right outfit to debut it and I think this whole look came together perfectly! I decided to pair my new red serrated jacket with a comfy oversized sweatshirt, a pair of wide leg joggers, some high knee socks and some fresh X_PLR’s to complete the look. I hope that you guys are into it as much as I am! Now let’s see how much trouble I can get into over here haha!

Switch Up Flows, Like I Switch Up My Clothes


christian thompson | christian confidential Don’t mind the title of this post, I’ve been listening to way too much rap these days haha! I’m really into this look and I hope that you guys are too! I got these pants from Publish Brand a while ago and wanted to find the perfect outfit to break them in with. I decided to pair them with a leather jacket, a black tank & some white sneakers. I don’t think I’ve ever tried wearing  burnt orange before but I don’t think I’ll shy away from it anymore!

Dapper Moments in Le Marais

christian confidential Hi guys, so I’m STILL going through my photos from Paris and wanted to share this look that I wore c/o COS for Men’s Fashion Week! I’ve really grown to love the brand, as I feel that a lot of their collection reflects my aesthetic – clean, minimal and oversized. I wore this outfit to  Sean Suen’s SS17 presentation, which was one of my favourite shows this season! To me, this look was perfect for the occasion – wearing regular dress shirts aren’t always my thing but the oversize twist to this one had me excited to style it. I paired it with some light pleated trousers, rose gold accessories (yes, I said rose gold) and white sneakers – are you into it?

Retro Vibes In Paris

christian confidential | parisThese last few days have been pretty crazy to say the least! Forget about having time to recover from jet lag, I feel like I’ve just been going non stop. From attending shows, meeting with brands and shooting some content for the blog – lets just say that free time has been kinda scarce. That being said, I’m that guy that no matter how tired I am, if I’m away from home and I have any free time, I need to explore! In Paris there’s literally something beautiful around every corner and that’s honestly what I love about this city! This was yesterday’s casual look that I put on before heading to an early dinner at Pink Flamingo (they have the BEST pizza). I wanted something super comfortable yet stylish and this two-piece track suit won me over – are you guys into it?

Street Style During Paris Fashion Week

Topman | ChristianSo you’re either going to love or hate this look I wore during Paris Fashion Week! I, think it’s a bit different from what I would normally wear, which to be honest is why I opted for it. If there’s ever a time to try something a little more out there with your style it’s definitely 1. while traveling and 2. during fashion week (have you seen what some people wear to the shows eeek).
I paired this denim jumper with my all white nike huaraches (which I’m more than obsessed with… sigh, if only I had an all black pair too lol) and a copper coloured tuque. It’s clean, it’s street and a little different at the same time!

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!
