Elegantly Grey

by laurenlux

There are 3 ways to describe Danish style: minimal, structured, and sporty (but luxe). It’s almost like Nike meets Acne meets Chanel, all in one outfit. It was nice to go without seeing a Mulberry bag for 3 days. I’m not a Mulberry fan (sorry, I’m not sorry). From kids to adults, everyone was wearing cool trousers with trainers. I am insanely inspired by this look and already have my eye on the pair of New Balance below (the UKK 420). They would go perfect with a pair of leather pants. I do have to say though, credit mainly goes to my friend living in Denmark who had them. Trying to decide between getting a dark pair like this or a colourful pair is difficult, so I think I’ll just have to get both. Oh well.

Favourite brands in Denmark are: Samsøe Samsøe, Dansk, Weekday, Wood Wood, Storm Fashion. If I could choose an outfit right now, it would be this:

4. Weekday Jewellery & Tote

6. Acne Angora Scarf (last season)

Word to the Wang

by laurenlux

Last week I dropped by KCD press week. I must admit, I generally hate press days. The only reason I went to this one was because my ultimate favvvvourite brands (Wang and Lim) were showing and I wanted to see what they had in store for AW13. It’s cray cray how it’s not even summer yet and we’re talking Autumn!

Heading to the Canary islands tomorrow (or should I say tonight because the flight is literally at 6 in the morning). All I can think of is white and silver. White midi dresses, white skirts, white jumpers, blouses, you name it. I just can’t get it out of my head.

Geometric Love

by laurenlux

Help. I need all of this. Now. As you can tell, all I can think of lately is black and white (with neon accents). I am mainly in love with Alexander Wang’s new SS13 collection. Everything is geometric, structured, cut-out, and most importantly black and white. The Acne buckle boots below are also currently the apple of my eye. I ran into a friend who works at Acne the other day and he was with a girl that had them in black. I WILL hunt these down. It pains me not to have them. If I could have any outfit, it would be the below.

3 Men’s Autumn Winter Trends You Need to Know

by laurenlux

Want to stay up to speed in the style stakes? We’ve picked three of the season’s key menswear trends to help you get ahead of the game.

1. Into the Blue

From inky shades of ultramarine at Paul Smith and Acne to bright cobalt tones at Ann Demeulemeester, the mood this season is definitely blue. Wear it head-to-toe to hit the sartorial nail on the head or invest in luxury separates to bring your current wardrobe up to date.

2. Second Skin

Making an appearance at all the top designer shows, leather is the hot ticket for autumn/winter. No longer just about the jacket, designers went cowhide-crazy as Yves Saint Laurent’s leather suit proves. For a more wearable way to work the trend, look out for leather lapels and panel detailing on coats, jumpers, jackets and bags.

3. Check Mate

From plaid to argyle to tartan, checks are big news this season. Take a leaf out of Vivienne Westwood’s book and choose smart tailoring in contrasting colour or keep it cool and casual and let a plaid shirt update your weekend wardrobe.

Accessorize your accessories: Hats & Shoes for Boyz

by laurenlux

It’s all about accessories. Hats & Shoes are two elements of fashion that can make you stand out from the crowd while still wearing fairly minimalistic clothing. I think I just made up a word, but I like it. My made-up term derives from minimalism which, in fashion terms happens when simple combines with luxury to create an elegant, pared-down chic effect. This particular type of style is very much in line with how I dress – simple, but still edgy, by exposing the essence of clothing through the elimination of non-essential forms. I often wear very plain pieces, but crazy shoes/hats/coats. Everyone that knows me knows about my sick obsession with shoes. Minimum height – 5 inches. So, see below a compilation of shoes & hats, men’s edition. Ladies, you’re next.

While you’re listening, let’s talk music. Coming up on April 14th  is a very exciting and exclusive DJ event that I will be helping out with as a photographer. My dear friend, Mike Wilson, AKA Electro/House Music DJ Mikey Wilson will be releasing his next mixtape at the trendy Coquine in South Kensington. Beats will be going until 4am with some irresistible talent alongside Mike turning the tables. Themed black, white, and red, this party is something you don’t want to miss.

Tickets are £9 and selling fast. Get yours here http://loversmixtapereleaseparty.eventbrite.co.uk/. Stay tuned for some more on DJ Mike’s background, and samples of his music.

New Kids On the Street (Block)

by laurenlux

Ever noticed that London style is so old school? Everything reminds me of the 70’s/80’s/90’s… kinda like New Kids On the Block. Don’t tell me you’ve already forgotten that legend of a boy band. Neons, cray-cray printed jumpers, boxy hair styles, Football (American) jackets, skinny jeans, jean jackets, double denim love love love. HOWEVER, my recent goal has been to make my posts as relatable as possible. Although they say Londoners dress to be seen, and it is quite entertaining seeing just how far they go to be photographed, I’ve decided to focus on people we actually WANT to dress like + a little bit of quirk. So here ya go:

Blue & Skinny Khakis.. you can never go wrong with this combination

I have a plaid jacket just like that. Yes, I buy men’s clothing for myself. #trending

Italiano? CI! Love the runners. There’s that NKOTB hairstyle I was referring to.

Brother love. Keds love.

Blinded by the light. But wicked studded shoes. Minor quirk.

Double collar & Dessert boots

Leather sleeves? Questionable, but kinda cool.

Football (American) jacket

Red pantaloons (sp?)

Andddd that’s a wrap. For now. God I love skinny ties.

Photocreds? Me. Where/when? London Fashion Week, and obviously Brick Lane, Duh.

M-M-M-Mint

by laurenlux

In spirit of St. Patricks, let’s talk green. Firstly, I’d like to say I had quite an eventful weekend celebrating St. Patty’s in Dublin. Two words to describe it: pure carnage. There were about 15-20 Canadians dressed in ridiculous green outfits from head to toe which was a fashion disaster to say the least. But when it comes to celebrating holidays, who cares!

Now, onto what’s trending: Spring greens. I have fallen madly in love with sea-foam/mint green. This has got to be one of my favourite colours for Spring/Summer 12. My most recent seafoam green purchase was The Kooples Flowing Crepe Shirt, featured below, and key sea-foam green pieces, and looks that they go with. Oh, and how can I forget, ST PATTY’S DAY PICS!

The edgy-chic look
