As summer winds down layers are key.

Style Notes:

The overall theme of this hoodie is good luck. This piece comes from the Gucci 2017 Fall collection which is heavily inspired by the Asian culture. The vibrant red color as well as the embroidered dragon on the back side of the hoodie is said to bring good fortune and prosperity to the wearer.. which I’m definitely not mad about.. Not to mention the number 25 (XXV in Roman Numerals) is embroidered on the top of the hood which is Alessandro Michele’s lucky number.

  1. Trench Coat – Burberry
  2. Tee Shirt – Gucci
  3. Denim “Track Pants” – Balmain

Burberry | Trench Coat

  • Double-breasted button fastenings
  • 100% cotton

Style Notes:

One of the most iconic/recognizable jackets of all time. The Burberry trench is a wardrobe staple that is the definition of classic. This is the Kensington trench by Burberry which is the more modern updated version of their iconic trench. It cuts shorter than the original and has more of a tailored fit. The beige color of this jacket is perfect for this time of year and comes in handy during those rainier days.

 

Gucci | Tee Shirt

Details: 

 

  • Multicoloured cotton-jersey
  • Crew neck
  • 100% cotton
  • Hand wash
  • Made in Italy

 

Style Notes:

I’ve literally seen this shirt at all the major music festivals and literally all over my Instagram. At first glance my initial reaction was that this shirt was a children’s color by numbers project and I would have to politely pass on this one.. but.. now after seeing it so often on the right people.. I like it.. I think.. lol either way.. their is something simple, childish and fun about this shirt.

 

Balmain | Denim 

Details:

 

  • Faded-blue
  • 95% cotton, 5% polyurethane. Fabric 2: 97% cotton, 3% elastane.
  • Hand wash
  • Made in Italy

  • Two front zip-fastening pockets, zip-fastening back patch pockets
  • Elasticated drawstring waistband, light-blue ties, silver-tone metal aglets
  • Silver-tone metal hardware

Style Notes: 

I love Balmain. I have been following this label for a very long time now and I absolutely love what Olivier (Creative Director of Balmain) has done with the brand. Much like the Burberry Trench these biker jeans are incredibly iconic and some would argue that their biker jeans are what made Balmain famous.

 

Christian Louboutin | Shoes

Style Notes: 

There is something very smart about a khaki colored shoe.. and it really is one of those more obscure color options that isn’t easily found in men’s shoes.

  • Shiny Rose Gold Metal
  • White Horn Acetate Browbar
  • Rose Gold “T” logo on the temples
