Filling These Spaces Up With Days

One of the highlights of the London life is the ability to flicker past high fashion shop windows and reflect their luxurious imagination in your own scrapbook thoughts. I can always spot an Armani suit on the way to work, where it becomes its own exclusive dimension beyond the 2D flock of wannabee 'smart'sters' surrounding the 9am rush. What makes Armani stand out for other reasons as well though is the brands ability to embody a richness while accomodating for a gritty youth and attention to texture. The lookbook below is the perfect example of a suited impression that knuckles in unexpected toughness and a hint'n'pinch of the countryside. Lumberjacks creep out of leather jackets that rewind the zip, 'don't mess with me gloves' juxtapose the casual fit blazer, and scuffed and shiny shoes serenade the trousers that have an organic earthy undertone to the smart charcoal proceedings. Taking inspiration from this, I'm wearing a look that from afar is a smart shirt and wax trouser marriage, but up close is sprinkled with intricate glitter and detail. The shirt takes the paisley print and trend into a Victorian gothic masquerade, the jacket is crystallized with 80s gameshow style glitter, and the scarf is misty and dark.

Switching back to Armani Exchange again, they've teamed up with Toolroom Knights for a series of DJ nights at their flagship stores within the UK that I'm craving to attend and disco at very soon. Fashion and Armani fused together sounds like the perfect soundtrack to me. This weekend on OCTOBER 22 the mixtape calls at REGENT ST, LONDON – JESSE JAMES / WESTFIELD, LONDON – JAMES MURRAY / BULLRING, BIRMINGHAM – KRIS SHAW / BLUEWATER, KENT – LARUA ESSENCE/ TRAFFORD CENTRE, MANCHESTER – TONI JARVIS / METQUARTER, LIVERPOOL – LES CALVERT
