The Soles of Men

Dec 11, 2012

High heels are a lady’s luxury, but a gentleman’s creation. The current market for designer shoes is dominated by an array of international male designers, dedicated to fulfilling women’s desires for elegant footwear. In addition, some of the most elaborate shoe designs derive from British based designers.
Manolo Blahnik began making shoes in London in the 1970s. He opened his first shop in 1973 on Old Church Street in Chelsea. Blahnik’s designs are characterised by sinuous silhouettes and sharp stiletto heels. He used an arts and crafts style as inspiration for his autumn/winter 2012 collection, and in September he launched an exhibition at Paris Fashion Week to celebrate 40 years in fashion.
The designs of Christian Louboutin have similar origins in art. His shoes have signature red-lacquered soles, and the designer claims the inspiration for the red soles came from Paris’ Musée National des Arts d’Afrique et d’Océanie, Paris, where he saw a drawing of a woman’s shoe with a sharp heel slashed out by a red line.

Outfit Post: First Snow

Dec 10, 2012

And just like that Winter truly begins! The first snowfall is something I'm really excited about every year, since it transforms the city in a "winter wonderland" (or at the very least successfully covers up the not so aesthetically pleasing things about it): the lights, the decorations, I love it all! What can I say, I'm definitely feeling the holiday spirit.
Luckily for me, I just finished re-organizing my wardrobe in order to be ready for my favorite season, and recently when shopping for a few more items to keep me cozy.
Here's the outfit I just wore today - and no, I wasn't cold wearing the denim jacket if that's what you were wondering!

Morning Meetup | Bucharest's Most Well-Dressed Men

Dec 6, 2012

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to meet up with some of some of Bucharest's most stylish men, as SARTO organized a very cool meeting.
The purpose was to promote men's fashion by bringing together some of the more recognizable figures in town, and I was very flattered to be a part of it all.
While it was a really cold morning, it definitely didn't stop some from dressing for the occasion. As for myself, I chose to go with a ZARA coat and bag (oversized bags are my Kryptonite!), Pull and Bear jeans and H&M shoes.
Here are a few stills of me (but mostly my shoes) as well as a video. Enjoy!

Ready for the Holidays | Bershka Men's Xmas 2012 Collection

Dec 5, 2012

From the looks of it, it's going to be a very stylish Holiday season this year! Bershka has put together an amazing Xmas collection, modeled by Lennart Richter, James Michael & John Kendrick.
I must say that I definitely admire the simplicity, because sometimes (if not most of the time) restraint can be more powerful than going all out.
Take a look at more photos from the collection, along with a campaign video next:

Treat yourself to a night in with the girls

As the party season approaches, there is no better excuse to get the girls round and indulge in a bit of pampering. Here are a few ways to help you recreate the spa experience at home and get you looking and feeling your best.

Feed your skin
To give your skin the ultimate indulgence, create your own natural face mask using avocado.
Rich in proteins that are proven to help reduce the appearance of age spots and sun damage, as well as being proven to increase the amount of collagen in our skin*, avocados are the perfect ingredient to use in a face mask to help keep skin soft and maintain a youthful appearance. Simply blend together avocado and honey to create a healthy treat for your skin, and rinse away using a facial wash such as Johnson’s Face Care Nourishing Cream Wash.
