John Varvatos


Evening guys, I'm just going to jump straight into tonight's post and what an epic one I have lined up for you! It was an absolute pleasure partnering with John Varvatos last month, thinking, creating & executing a plan to shoot for the brand. This is one of the coolest opportunities I have had so far working for a huge name in the industry. John Varvatos is damn cool American designer who produces some of the best clothing I have ever seen, not to mention have had the pleasure to wear! If someone told me three years ago I'd be collaborating with a brand straight out the rock n' roll royalty list, I'd of hardly believed you!







I not only created a campaign style shoot for myself, but also a film of one of my friends. You may have seen my mate Andrew modelling in the shoot last month and yeah, he fucking smashed it! Andrew brought the exact vibe I wanted to the table when it came to shooting J.V his chiselled features, strong look and undeniable confidence being on camera, it was the perfect storm to create the film I wanted. (If you didn't see the film I posted a few weeks back on instagram, you can catch it at the bottom of this post).







It's funny as myself and Andrew shot the exact same outfit. I shot Andrew first, then, a week later, I took my turn in front of the camera. Wearing the same look, styling it our own individual ways, we both  channelled different energies to the shoot and both brought something entirely different to the party. Plus I had my sofa as a prop! Don't even ask me how I got it down there!

I don't think it was a question of who wore it better, it just shows you even with the same clothing, individuality and style always shines through!






Obviously I had to have a killer backing track to play along with both films, taking inspiration from John Varvatos' instagram who feature Jimi Hendrix - Star Spangled Banner. I decided this fit best, obviously I couldn't get Jimi but I managed to get the next best thing - That's the man, the legend Harry Arnold on guitar, I know you'll agree when I say he took that song to the next level, his playing is off the chart!









You can shop the looks online at John Varvatos, I'll give you a closer look and chat more about the clothing across on my YouTube soon. I know it's been a while, I haven't uploaded a video in MONTHS but now I think it's about time for a big return, just give me a few days to film it!

PHNT VIETNAM






Evening guys, we gotta good one this evening, you'll have seen me wearing a few styles of this brands killer shirting range across on my instagram in the past week and now here's the post to go along with for that extra added info. There's no secret this brand takes a lot of inspiration from Saint Laurent's collections, colour palettes and that rock n' roll aesthetic, but come on, it's certainly not a negative. Take a look for yourself and check out their instagram to see a killer line of garments and even bag yourself some inspo on how to rock their sweet line of shirting.






Price wise your looking at just over £30 from its exchange rate in Vietnamese Dong, this is nearly a third of the price of some British brands making the same clothing in similar factories in Asia. In fact its way better, as all PHNT's designs are made from linen, rather than the cheaper cotton or viscose materials!




Postage is fast and secure, I received my parcel by DHL, price wise you're talking £20-£30 depending on the weight of your order however, its well worth the cost as you're saving just as much on the exchange rate. As you can see my favourite three here, I absolutely love them, and look how fucking cool they look when styled up!

ALL SAINTS LEATHER & CIGS






Evening guys, how are you all doing? I've decided having a little check in on the blog was needed tonight, you know, its being a while. Lockdown is easing here in the U.K and its nice to get back to a classic day to day, more importantly getting back to more of a routine and flow with work too. I say that however, I have literally spent the last week, 9-5 painting my car getting it all ready for the summer. So not really snowed under but I have a few sexy little projects in the pipeline. I've also been enjoying the sunshine, beer gardens and the odd restaurant this week alongside BBQ's and amazing street food, ahhh it feel so fucking good to be back doing things and seeing people enjoying themselves.






 I hope you've all had a chance to enjoy yourselves too, getting back to tonight, I've decided to show you more images I shot for All Saints and American department store Nordstrom a few weeks ago. This was a big deal for me as I've loved All Saints for such a long time now, I mean, my first job when I left school was in All Saints and ever since then All Saints hold that special place in my fashion journey! I just hope I can work a little closer with the brand soon, fingers crossed ey!



I visited this bridge when I was in my temporary yet amazing lockdown getaway in Hexham a few months back and knew it would be an awesome place to shoot, I was just waiting for the right idea, then All Saints messaged! I knew I had to head back here as it acts as the perfect backdrop to the Milo Leather Biker Jacket & skinny, black cigs they gifted me. It reminded me of a mini Tyne Bridge, it just looks like a scaled down version, so cool and the perfect background to a shoot!






I love this biker, I do have quite the collection now but when you throw an All Saints leather over your shoulders, it's an effortless piece to wear and style up in an outfit. You don't really have to think about it, a classic black biker always looks super cool, worn simply with a classic Tonic Scoop and all the attention is focused on that sexy, black biker itself!

Cheers for reading and checking back,
