The colour suave style is fast becoming a trend for men. And huge it is going to become. Well one can say it is the same as colour blocking. Well in some respect it is not, in the sense that, it is about choosing a piece that you identify with and making it your own.An example is choosing your favorite colour of sock, shirt, belt, blazer which does not necessarily mean it has go with the outfit you are wearing.
The colour suave is all about mixing up the colours in a manly versatile decadent way. AWay with the thinking that your socks should always match the shirt your wearing.
Introduce the originality of your true being. Men should should not be like colones when is comes to style. Diversity is more needed now.
This shoot was done at the balcony of my flat in the West End London. Andre the model wearing a spring summer 12 piece from the Bolongaro Trevor collection. Andre, working hard to perfect his poses at the balcony to the thrill of the team present on that day. Snap, Snap… off the balcony now…

The brighter the better. It was a happy day doing this shoot for HUF Magazine issue 7.
The theme – Block colours – The clash and splash of colours. I love this styling and it was really intriguing as far as the colour contrast and the background is concerned. It’s the dandy of the East.

Shoes of Italy wear better that any others, and my styled men have always gone for Italian leather and styling. Find the right fit, and the quality and comfort will be outstanding.
Go for the brand ZANACCO. Their look is professional, yet fashionable, and they are setting the trends around the world. From London to Melbourne, these shoes are designing the street scene.
The most remarkable aspect of this this, Zanacco, apart from its wonderful designs, is its ZERO impact. Hand-made artisan-tooled, and perfectly finished, it will set your feet, not on the street, but in the sky.
Zanacco is a cultural Phenomenon. You will look good in the office; you will look good in the bistro. Match them with a formal suit. ( I prefer light grey or summer-eight-pin-stripe blue), and feel confortable.
Don’t the umbrella.
