5 BRANDS X FWST PRESENTS: BLOSSOM &WEDNESDAY

blossom and wednesdayI have been creating images and strips of movies in my head since I could count to three. Ever since I picked up a camera, my vision of things has somehow been different from the norm; that means I work with bold clients only. I believe in simple visuals that form an encouraged reaction with the viewer. Early this year, I started the 5 brands x FWST, this project  was to basically showcase my visuals  through the works of a few brands that I truly respect,

THE LIGHT WASH FACTORY 2: 23 PM

IMG_4567   Ever since I scored this three button unconstructed jacket from Tommy Hilfiger, I have been hunting for the perfect light wash denim to complement them for my advanced jay Leno look. Nothing says I am about to have a swell weekend like a pair of light wash denim. These heaven-sent denim pants are from faded glory, I know, that’s the last brand I expected this gift to come from. The weight of these denim pants are really light they feel like one of my tuxedo pants, with that I have had them tailored extra slim for a sharper feel, and I totally love the outcome.

FROM A WARDROBE IN THE SUN

IMG_3798 Before i had any knowledge in suit fabrics, I found the thought incorporating waist coats into my wardrobe quite absurd, considering the fact I live in the tropics where it’s humid all year long. I have encountered a lot of gentlemen who share this ignorant view and i believe it’s mainly due to their little or no knowledge in the types of fabric that exist. Most men on a good day will not go past the color and fit of a suit, which usually leads to bad-buys, and the inability to distinguish the appropriating suiting for different seasons. For example , I find it amusing how a lot of gentlemen gawk at any suit with a slashed price

MAN’S BEST FRIEND

IMG_3776 Men secretly love the things they can’t control, especially when it works in their favor”. You can anticipate that fact that leather will age with time, but you can never predict the exact shade it will take in regards to discoloration from constant wear and polish. Menswear has more than enough expressed it’s love for “patina”; which is basically the natural discoloration of full grain leather over time of use. The love of patina has escalated to a level where footwear manufactures are able develop artificial patinas courtesy of master artisans straight from the factory to the consumer at a welcomed cost.

CURATED METALS, WITH MR. TJ LETSA

IMG_0257 I love jewelry, but unfortunately it falls under the category of things that come to life on everyone else apart from me. Meet fellow photographer Mr letsa (pronounced le•tcher), I bumped into him the other day and I wasn’t about to let him slide without getting a shot of his well curated metals.Men tend to over do jewelry, yet its quite surprising how Mr. Letsa pulls his off without coming off gaudy. I love the brass and the anchored rope bracelet very much, makes me want to start sacking up bracelets again. I really fancy pinky rings, but for some unknown reason every ring wants to come off my finger after 5 seconds flat.I guess it won’t hurt  sticking  to the appreciation chair till I gather up guts, enjoy.
