Colour My Life With The Chaos Of Trouble

One of my favourite things to do is fuse trends together; I can be such an erratic man-about-town-and-mind, that tattooing a single style to my silhouette isn't a good idea. After all, a wardrobe has so much more life and colour to it when there's a treasure chest of activity within it. And I also like to evolve my outfit successes and failures, making a happy marriage of tops that previously left me lonesome. So why not bring Winter's influence into Spring, and keep the seasonal chain running through in subtle ways. Take a clash of a bohemian gypsy with an androgynous city man. Accessories that involve an earthy trilby and playful bow tie with a mystical and gothic sheer shirt teases the trends together, and I love the corrugated rust trousers that bark out of chunky military boots. The pieces are from my friends at Brighterman, where they also put together a video of the look in mind as a memory. I'm going to be collaborating with them more during the Spring, showcasing video snippets of tips to style ideas and bring them to life. Keep tabs through their site and channels at http://www.brighterman.com/ / http://www.youtube.com/user/BrightermanTV / http://brighterman.com/blog


I'm also sporting an inspired bag from Hackett's new collection that really personifies the tailored man with a twist. The light and dusty earth colours work wonders for my bohemian ideas with a difference. Check out more of the collection at http://www.hackett.com/
