That Time I Wore My Ice-Watch in … Madrid

Words: Yours truly • Photos: David • Location: Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid

A few weeks ago, the Belgian brand Ice-Watch reached out to me and invited me to choose a timepiece from their Pierre Leclercq collection, and I wasted no time in jumping at the chance because it’s a brand well-known and well-loved by many — and because this collab came at just the right time for my trip to Madrid… Continue Reading

Styling Oriental-Style Print : #OOTD in Lisbon

Let’s get the formality out of the way : if you’re reading this from the UK, happy Bank Holiday! Otherwise, I hope you’re having a terrific day nonetheless.

Now here’s a confession : I’m not very good at fashion-blogging when I travel. As in, I rarely ever blog about my travel outfits these days, but as it was my birthday trip, I felt I had to post at least one OOTD post from Portugal to remember what I wore – so here’s one I shot in Lisbon… more specifically, Belém.

#OliverxTopman // Part Two

Words: @oliverinstead / Photos: David

Topman has always been one of my fav go-to high street stores for smart and on trend pieces. When it comes to the cut and fit, they’re arguably second-to-none. Last week, I revealed my two-part collaboration with Topman (read Part One) where I took on the challenge to style a party ‘hero’ piece in both daytime and evening look. Here, I present to you the followup. Continue Reading
