Style Diary | Scott Eastwood for HUGO BOSS

Hugo Boss campaigns never had been this chic. Why, you may ask? Well, maybe it’s because Scott Eastwood landed as the face of the Boss campaign for this year.Familiar name, right? Well, Scott is the son of the film industry’s finest Clint Eastwood. And it’s great, it’s a fresh start for the firm too, because in the last couple of years you couldn’t find any chic slim wear when you were looking for something to buy. The new line is very elegant and masculine, the sowing lines are just perfect. Guess 2014 is all about rebooting firms that were standing in line for a slow death. And it worked, the campaign is perfect, see for yourself:

DESIGNER DIARY | PRADA FW 2014

For the Fall Winter campaign, Prada chose James McAvoy as the face of the 2014 menswear line. It’s very classic and sophisticated at the same time and very monochrome, it kind of reminds us of the evolution of the glam rock trend in music and fashion this year.

What more can we say - we love it.

…and here is the “Behind the Scenes” video of the campaign shoot here

Enjoy.

STYLE DIARY SPECIAL | PITTI UOMO 86

Pitti Uomo marveled us yet again with its street style this year. If we want to label this year’s summer styles we would suggest the tags #traditional and #casual .

Traditional? Well the color navy blue was definitely the favorite shade of the attendants, you will see in the pictures shot by Tommy Ton. Also, a lot of attendants opted for a more casual style. And of course there were those who were (yet again) out of this planet with their clothing (Wooster and co.) wearing socks in June, boiling in hobo clothes and so on (we will have a NOT column too). 

So, here come the pictures!

I. DON’T 

Khaki rucksack with a casual suit? Well, we wouldn’t suggest it, but who are we to judge…

Well, where should we begin… This whole outfit is wrong! The color combination is ok but the measures are just simply wrong. We’re not saying you should wear slim or very fit clothes. No! Dress for comfort that’s the key. The gentleman in the picture looks much older because of his hobo style. 

We usually love Mr. Wooster’s style, but 2014 is not his year. He is a very fit gentlemen for his age which is very good yet this year he wore these baggy, unstylish 1980s type of clothes which we wouldn’t suggest for our readers. 

The hat. No comment. Just don’t.

II. DO:

1. COOL BLUE:

Shades of blue: navy, electric or whatnot. We love them all. A must wear shade in the Summer.

2. TRADITIONAL COLORS:

The colors dust, camel, brown, chocolate, grey. We love all of them. 

3. ACCESSORIES WE LOVE:

 Hats, scarfs, tortoise sunglasses or electric eye wear. You can see that these cool accessories highlight brilliantly the outfit of the beholder. Perfettamente!

4. CASUALLY COCKY:

We adore these casual guys. It’s important to look good and feel comfortable at the same time.

5. GREAT ITALIAN SHOES:

The best shoes are from Italy, remember that. Whatever the brand may be, an Italian handmade shoe will steal your heart. We guarantee.
