Politix AW14

I recently went for a shop at the Politix menswear flagship store in Melbourne and was definitely surprised with the bold new range. A burgundy velvet blazer was what first caught my eye and I worked the rest of the look around that. Adding a tan coat and black jeans gave the look the semi-formal but still casual appeal so I could wear it down the street but also out to a function and not feel under or over dressed.

Layered looks are essential in this Melbourne weather; you never know what the day will bring temperature wise so it’s good to just layer up. This Politix outfit has been my favourite to style up so far, having a bit more fun playing with the textures, styling and colour palette. It’s structured, easy to wear, practical but elegant.

If you get a chance check the Politix AW14 range online now or head into one of their many stores.

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS

I recently had the privilege to road test the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS and before I go any further I just want to say that there’s no need for me to carry on about all the specs as they can all be found on the Mercedes-Benz website here. I will however point out the distinctive features of the CLS that sets it apart from the others.

The first thing you notice with the CLS is that it’s long and sleek and looks like a descendent of the Maybach. With a never ending body and a low slung back and large symmetrical exhausts, this vehicle is definitely not for the faint hearted. I think the advertisement for the CLS says it all: “Kiss anonymity goodbye”. I love the shape and wish other car makers would take note here and create some bolder shapes.

The ride is smooth and luxurious as is the interior with the typically excellent quality and attention to detail that comes with the Mercedes-Benz.

The CLS is an absolute pleasure to drive and an impressive vehicle to look at so if you’re keen on making the purchase just know that you will indeed be kissing your anonymity goodbye!

Ted Baker VAMFF

Since it’s beginning in Glasgow in 1987 Ted Baker has been known for it’s well detailed sometimes quirky and above all dapper style. I was not left disappointed after a recent store visit to choose a look where I had a ball pulling together the look you can see below. I even took a quick snap in the change room of my selections so you can see how I put everything together. I did have some creative help from the store clerk Matcho and my stylist partner Micah with a few items which made this look pop a little more.

The Ted Baker team are in Melbourne Australia during the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (17-23 March 2014) and have a fantastic Ted Baker themed photo booth setup with prize giveaways. Details here
