Not too long ago, yet another successful fashion week was held in New York. And after seeing some really amazing street style shots I decided to do my very own NYFW inspired street style shoot, except mine was done in Sandton.
It’s amazing how a little wind, some yellow cabs and some skyscrapers can instantly make you feel like you’re in another city. If I hadn’t mentioned to you that this shoot was done in Sandton, you probably would’ve thought it really was done in NYC haha!
There’s something about a suit that just makes you feel important. You’re noticed more easily and many people stop and stare out of curiosity to see what it is you’re up to.
For this shoot I partnered up with Kurt Geiger and The Dapper Toad. And I came up with this fresh look. I love how a simple pocket square and floral lapel pin can transform your suit jacket and instantly make it more stylish. If you haven’t already, you should definitely have a look at @thedappertoadsa for all you dapper needs.

Recently, I was asked by Kurt Geiger to shoot for their massive chino campaign. I was allowed to pick out pieces that I personally liked, from their collection.
When it comes to picking out your chinos, always look for chinos that look good, have a great fit and are versatile with other clothing. And these Kurt Geiger chinos definitely fit all the above categories.
Always look for colours that will pop and bring out the colour of your chino. I’m specifically referring to your shirts, tee shirts and golfers.
What I love most about these chinos is that they can be worn formally or semi-formally. They are also really comfortable with great detailing.

If you know me by now, you’ll know that I like to be different from everyone else. I like to create my own unique style. This is why I went for something completely different in this look post.
Usually most people will go for the conventional white and blue or blue and blue. However, I decided that I’d go for burgundy and blue and the results speak for themselves. Don’t get me wrong white and blue and blue and blue work well, but who says you have to do what everyone else does?
I felt really sophisticated in this suit, it’s got a different feel to it. I also fancied my Ted Baker brogues which gave the look an extra touch of sophistication. What I love most about the jacket, is that it can be worn with the trouser as a full on suit or in a slightly less formal style with a pair of jeans or chinos.
This shoot was done in a street in Parkhurst by the lovely Laylashaikphotography.

I have to admit this year has been really good for me and the blog. I’m finally seeing some progress and blogging is starting to get more exciting. I was really thrilled when Kurt Geiger contacted me to collaborate with them. I mean who wouldn’t be? It’s such an honour to work with such a profound brand such as Kurt Geiger.
Kurt Geiger is famous for it’s sophisticated style and excellent quality. I really enjoyed picking out some of their amazing pieces, especially the burgundy coat featured below. It’s such a unique design and immediately caught my attention when I first saw it. I also love the brown shoes (also featured below) which are very versatile and can be worn with a suit, jeans or a chino.
It was real pleasure working with Laylashaikphotography and I look forward to continue working with her in the near future. We did the shoot at Circa Gallery in Rosebank. They have some amazing exhibitions so go check it out.
