Why this outfit today?
I owe this outfit to the many gentlemen of Pitti, which is an area renown to be swarming with menswear guru’s and style icons. A place for pioneers of fashion, where they can spread their wings; “peacocking” their best garments, combinations and flamboyance.

My only regret is not having a pair of egg shell white chinos to top this outfit off.

I was in London today on the CV run as I embark on my final year of University. En route to pop into some retailers I decided to grab lunch on Shoreditch High Street at BOX PARK, which hosts a selection of quirky pop-up’s fitted into black shipping containers - pay a visit if you get the chance, either for lunch or an afternoon drink.

How would you like your Tea today?
I’m feeling pretty content, let’s just have Green.

Location
Brick Lane, London

Paul Smith - Book Signing

After visiting the “HELLO, my name is Paul Smith" exhibition late last year and being suitably swept by his demeanor and boy-ish charm, Sir Paul Smith decided to hold a book signing at the Design Museum. Luckily I was free and so took the chance to meet our British icon, whilst getting my copy of his latest book signed (Hello My Name Is Paul Smith, Smith, Sudjic and Loveday - £25, Amazon).

Paul Smith is a designer that prides himself on adolescent whit which is evident through much of his work. From the lining of a suit to printing bicycles on silk scarves, Smith’s process is always to throw as much of his personality onto the garments he creates.

After meeting the British designer, I can safely say that Paul Smith is every bit the way you would imagine him. Inviting, lovable, humble. A creative innovator of his time and pioneering figure for British designers in the 1970s.

The exhibition is open until the 22nd June 2014. Installations include: a replica of his very first Nottingham store, Paul’s studio awash with pan-tone books, toys, and an acrylic bowl of spaghetti.

Admission Adult - £15, Student - £9.50

Location Design Museum, London Bridge
