As you know, we love watches. In fact, these last few months, we went on a little editorial world tour, looking for the most beautiful timepieces -from the most conservative to the most minimalist, from traditional retail stores to Kickstarter and from Switzerland to Singapore. Yet, last month, the tour took us back to Paris, where we were invited to preview Baume & Mercier‘s latest men’s collection.
We’ve long been admirers of style icon Porfirio Rubirosa. The fella was considered the last great playboy of the twentieth century. He loved women, piloted aeroplanes, drove racing cars and searched for sunken treasures in the Caribbean. The rumor even has it that he inspired Ian Fleming to create James Bond. Quite the legacy…
Is the sun back? It certainly feels like it. In fact, we spent the weekend in the sun, walking around and enjoying being outdoors. And so we thought that now would be the perfect time to give away a pair of sunnies by one of our favorite London-based spectacle brands, MONC London. To enter, simply follow the instructions on this Instagram post. We’ll pick a winner at midnight on Sunday. It’s happening here. Good luck!
One of the coolest shirts I own is from a young independent New York-based label called Corridor. We first told you about them two years ago and have been checking them out season after season since. They just dropped their latest collection and once again, we love it. Every single piece is on point -the above shirt is an all-time favorite- and as always the brand’s aesthetic is solid. Here’s a selection of flats from the collection’s lookbook. Ps/ 15% off your first order if you sign up to Corridor’s newsletter.
Every year at Easter, it’s the same story. People head out looking for chocolate eggs (or something). But not me. I usually pour myself a nice cup of coffee, sit on my couch and get weird -looking for bargains. I call those Easter bargains. Don’t judge. This year, this journey took me to my favorite menswear e-shop, End Clothing, but also to Farfetch, which I browse less often. Here’s what I found. If you like what you see, hurry up, sizes are limited. Oh and happy Easter, folks!
Only Wednesday but it’s already been a rough week! Can it be the weekend already? At least, it’s started to be nice and warm in London… I know it probably won’t last but in the meantime it has me longing for some sun. And so I thought I’d share with you Toka Toka‘s new lookbook for their latest collection -since it was shot in sunny Marseille and inspired by Cuba! The collection is called Ambus Mundos. It is an ode to good old Ernest Hemingway, who resided in La Havana from 1932 to 1939. It features light Summer shirts inspired by the island and casual jackets and jerseys. All products are available here. Enjoy.
