JUST HITCHED

IMG_3496  I hate weddings invitations with wardrobe instructions, and that’s mainly because couples somehow lose the appreciation color of their big day. Lucky for me my latest wedding invitation leaned more to the classic side, a black tie wedding. I find Black tie weddings to be very classy and elegant, definitely a good excuse to pull out my shawl collared tux from DAKS London. I also took a newbie in my wardrobe out for a spin , I will put up a post about this mystery addition in a bit.I was in a room filled with close friends and some new ones and it so happens my camera was in hand.

These will look so chic in both my casual and formal wardrobe, I imagining a lot of solid and dark pieces to make these work their magic.

dita freshwallstreet africa style   After days of going back and forth on design and fabric, this is what Dita finally decided on to a wedding we recently attended. It’s such a fulfilling feeling to create a look from scratch, especially when you get to be in studio whiles your idea is being brought to life. Next time we put an outfit together I am damn sure going to document everything from a A-Z.freshwallstreet   IMG_3399photo & write up : Allen A. Coleman

A VINTAGE SHOE ADDICT TELLS IT ALL

IMG_1072Shoes,shoes, shoes is all this gentleman knows? Not exactly but I take pride in my love for shoes, I have seen the shoes on the guys in the IT department and I would pay more than an arm and a leg not to comeback in my next lifetime in anything they own. Hunting for shoes has become a sport that I have developed quite a liking to, the process is a patient one especially when it involves scouting countless shelves of shoes in thrift stores. In most cases when I spot a pair of shoes I quickly do my research on the brand and its history, unfortunately sometimes some of these shoes have no trace of the maker. In the case of this beautiful tan brown lace ups, I picked it up and walked away with a smile just off design and thorough inspection. The stamp of quality just from going through serious wear and finally landing on thrift store shelves in good condition is primary reason why I love scouting for vintage shoes.   IMG_1067   IMG_1073photos & Write up : Allen A.

IKIRE JONES S/S 2014

01_MG_0111  10_MG_0301  02 Kehinde_MG_0317  03 Kehinde_MG_0246  04 Kehinde_MG_0181   02_MG_0094The menswear world is buzzing with the release of IKIRE JONES SPRING/SUMMER 2014 and I am not surprised at all as only a handful of brands who are heavily influenced by tailoring look like they are really having fun with it like this brand is. Out of the collection The kihindire is clearly my favorite, a shawl collared dinner jacket with a vibrant and bold motif, this jacket is the perfect candidate for that crowd catching moment. Unlike the other jacket in the collection the Kihindire seems one with the wearer. I love how slim the sleeves have been cut, the soft tailoring compliments the jacket well, this definitely one for the summer weddings and parties.
