Building your trademark style may be among one of the most underestimated challenges for anyone with dreams of  traveling the world, being fabulous, and building a perfect career in the Arts & Entertainment sector.  Especially those living out of suitcases and constantly flying to foreign locations. While we’ll forever love  stores such as H&M, Topshop, Express and Zara, we should always  have handy those key ingredients from our closets that offer smooth style shenanigans, and can readily piece  together those million dollar outfits. Through these looks, we create confidence and bless ourselves with originality, a pleasant tune that we should all be singing to.

 I conquered today’s style, solemnity and magic using the local French decors + a little exotic noir.

Shirt: Hamilton Shirts

Pants: Topman

Bow Tie:  Dolce & Gabbana

Allocated by my routine style measures, I mixed  and matched a slew of new treasures.

My Gucci Gabardine Dandy inspired jacket and Bru Na Boinne pocket square shined bright like diamonds.

Though I had my jacket custom made by a humble little bespoke boutique in Paris, you can check out Gucci’s version of it here.

Per my crisp blue and white striped button-up, this  classic print stems from Houston based bespoke Hamilton Clothing Co.

Four years ago,  I was booked  by Hamilton heiress Kelly Hamilton for an exclusive designers exhibition taking place in, Washington, DC.

Hamilton Clothing Co. were among one of the select few brands to showcase during a private event for DC Modern Luxury Magazine.

Following the gig, Kelly was gracious enough to offer me the button up as  a gift.

  From living life in cold Europe, to tropical life in Los Angeles, to the gritty smog, dirt, and sweating of New York City + my urban roots of Baltimore, MD- my wardrobes signature of dapper distinction has taken me quite a long way.
