Despite its debut last September, the Yeezy Season 4 apparel and footwear collection has finally started to roll out over the past couple of weeks. Featuring the usual range of premium crewnecks, trackpants, and outerwear, the latest offerings from the Kanye West and adidas collaboration also feature a new white/cream version of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2.
Along with the Boost 350 V2, the only other piece in the collection which caught my eye was the Boxy ‘Calabasas’ Crewneck – a nod to the singer and designers L.A residence. The crewneck also ties nicely in to the recent Calabasas collection which dropped earlier this year and comprised of throwback sweaters, sweatpants and an all-new 80’s inspired Powerphase Adidas sneaker.
For me, the Boost 350 and Calabasas Crewneck were the two standout pieces from the collection, which I hoped to add to my wardrobe.
As with all the previous releases I had signed up to various raffles and had tried to bag my pair of the Boost 350 V2 on the official adidas website on the day but had no luck! I had almost given up on getting them when I received a notification that both the Yeezy Boost 350 and Yeezy Season 4 apparel had just dropped on Selfridges. Annoyingly the Boost’s sold out during the checkout process but I ended up getting the Calabasas Crewneck I wanted so it wasn’t a complete failure.
When it arrived, the first thing I noticed was how heavy it was. Made from French terry, the crewneck feels premium yet hard wearing. In terms of fit, for me it fits true to size despite it’s oversized fit. I’m a medium and I ordered a medium. Featuring drop shoulders and rib knit crewneck collar, cuffs, and hem, the crewneck sits well and looks great paired with a pair of blue ripped jeans.
What do you think of my latest pick up? Did you manage to get the Yeezy 350 Boosts? Any tips?
It’s been forever since I’ve done one of these type of posts! I don’t really know why I haven’t as I spend hours online and scrolling through instagram! Anyway, this is what has caught my eye lately. As you can probably tell I’m dreaming about warmer days and can’t wait for some REAL sun. After the last couple of months, I really feel like I need a week by a pool somewhere to just relax with a mojito in hand. As always, comfort is key for me – I like to keep it casual. You will most likely find me wearing a mixture of classic sports and streetwear brands or a pair of ripped blue jeans with a classic white t-shirt.
If you are anything like me then I’m sure you have been counting down to payday for the last week or two as well. Although I’m pretty good with money, by the time payday arrives, I already have my budget planned for the month ahead and know how much I have left to play with and… It’s okay to treat yourself every now and again!
Right now I’m starting to look for pieces to see me through the upcoming months and in to summer. In particular I’m looking at t-shirts and a pair of shorts or two as I have a trip away next month. I’ve just put a order in for ASOS for a couple of bits- I love thisNirvana band shirt. However, If I’m looking for items to last beyond a couple of months, I don’t mind paying more for good quality pieces.
So, as always, I have put together another unrealistic wishlist of things I would love to add to my wardrobe. The chances of it becoming reality are slim but a boy can dream! It’s always good to have things to work towards and coincidently, it’s also my Birthday next month too…
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it’s that time of the year again to start shopping for the perfect gift for that special guy in your life. Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, however in collaboration with L’Occitane After Shave Balm I have put together this quick Valentine’s Gift Guide to show you how easy it can be!

Men’s grooming gifts are a great way to treat your man to a little pampering this Valentine’s Day. For men who take pride in their appearance, the gift of ‘looking good’ shows that you care and is sure to be a welcome gift this Valentine’s day.

2017 is all about building a wardrobe of staples. Rather then trying to keep up with the latest trends and must haves, I know if I carefully select a handful of good quality and timeless pieces it will put me in a good position for years to come.
Over the last couple of years I feel like I have started to understand what my personal style is. Instead of having a high turn over of clothes that go quickly out of style or deteriorate in quality in a few washes, I’m going to invest in items which although may be more expensive, the quality is of a higher standard and they will last longer.
Famed for their sleek silhouette, minimal branding and premium price tag, the white Achilles low is probably the most iconic of the Common Projects designs. I’ve wanted them for so long but could never justify dropping £250 on a pair of white sneakers.
Luckily, I found them in the sale just before Christmas and decided the time was right.
With luxury Italian leather covering them inside and out, it’s clear the see why they have so much hype around them. The quality and craftsmanship on these are unreal and the size and style code gold stamp is just the right amount of detail. From first wear you can really tell they are going to last for years to come – taking on more character with every step you take. I’m really glad I took the plunge!
