Today I went shopping in BOXPARK in Shoreditch which is basically a cluster of little pop up shops with some really cool stuff. I bought a palm tree print jumper from one of the shops called Gu-Gu which was very cool and will be posted on my instagram later. Below you can see some of my street style pictures from today...
Although my blog does focus on mens' style I do appreciate a womenswear show occasionally which is why this post is filed under lifestyle and not style. Today I had the opportunity to attend the Maria Grachvogel SS14 show and it was amazing, above you can see what I personally thought were the highlights of the show.
I've been pretty inactive from blogging lately because nothing in my life is really worth blogging lately... However the little, vaguely interesting moments of my life are all chronicled on my instagram so if any of you have missed me even a little bit, follow my instagram: JCKJNSS
If you've been following the blog's twitter you'll know the reason for my lack of activity is that I've been really busy with my exams, which thankfully are now all over, as well as uni interviews.
To cut a long story short, one of those interviews was with London College of Fashion and since the interview I've been offered a conditional offer to attend which obviously I'm ecstatic about.
I'd heard all sorts of horror stories about the interview process and unsurprisingly some of them were true but not all of them. I'll be moving to London in september so you can look forward to all sorts of updates about that as well as lot more blog posts as of september since I'll be so close to so many fashion opportunities.
My birthday was a little over a week ago now and it was really great. my parents were really generpus and bought me, Prada and Jean Paul Gaultier aftershave along with my iPhone 5 and a new pair of black 510s as well as some money to go shopping with, which I've spent on a really nice bonded cotton jacket which I'll save for outfit posts and the suede brogues you can see above, as well as a few other things.
my friends were so generous as well, from the lot I ended up getting a beautiful soft yellow check shirt from Cos, a white textured jumper from Zara, some all black converse, a mug (better than it sounds), Tom Ford Black Orchid, two bottles of Vodka, a book called Fashion Scandinavia, that I've had my eye on since fashion week and some all white Air Force Ones and the new Justin Timberlake album from my girlfriend. I'm also told there is more to come...
All in all a great 18th birthday...
"PERFECTLY BALANCED IN EVERY SINGLE ASPECT"
I attended an interview for Fashion Buying at De Montfort University today and I was asked the question "Do you have a favourite high street store and if so why?".
The answer was immediately obvious; COS. COS represents everything Menswear should be, it's timeless and classical but in no way boring, it doesn't try hard to adhere to every whim of the fickle fashion world and as such has one of the most concise brand images on the high street.
It's effortless but not sloppy, timeless but not boring, mature but not stuffy. In as few words as possible it is perfectly balanced in every single aspect
