Niccolò P. London

Hey guys,

We are mid July and summer is in its full glory after some serious heatwaves last week. The time of the year to wear the finest outfits on holidays and events, but are these outfits always that comfortable? From my experience wearing several designers clothes it is not always made of the best materials and the fits can be a disaster sometimes. The fit of polo’s and shirts can be very boxy sometimes and the buttons feel plastic sometimes.

I got in touch with Niccolò P. several months ago to have a look at the collection and tailored made polo’s for the summer season. Niccolò P. is launched in May 2018 as a more structured approach to polo shirts: polos smart enough to take you from relaxed meeting to the rooftop bars of the city and from airport lounge to poolside.We talked about fabrics, fits and designer clothing which is not always the best on the market. As I am a huge fan of tailored clothing this was the right adres for me. I like my button shirts, polo’s and T shirts tailored on the shoulders and chest with a looser end on the bottom to keep it fresh and ventilated. Nicolò P. is a London based tailor specialized in classy menswear with the focus on Shirts and Polo’s. A little issue that I have with clothing is that I am 1,92cm tall and am pretty masculine on the shoulders and chest which makes it often hard to select the right sizing and tailor for me. Most problems are on the sleeve lengths and the length of the items itself , seams could cause an irritation on my skin in same cases. Niccolò P. uses the finest natural materials available anywhere in the world with bespoke-level details in classic style and a contemporary fit.

Italian Craftsmanship

Each polo is made using only cotton knitted in Montebelluna, a region of Italy renowned for fine textiles. West Indian Sea Island, Egyptian Mako and Supima cotton varieties are used, all of which are extra long staple cottons guaranteeing you a smooth, soft feel second to none. Fabrics are custom-dyed from over 2,300 colour options.

The polo’s are all made of the finest materials which makes it really pleasant to wear them during this summer season. The polo’s ventilate and are perfect to wear on the office and my holidays as they are dressed and easy to combine with a chino or short finished with a pair of loafers.

Talentless by Scott Disick

Hey all,

Quick update. Summer is here and this means an all new summer wardrobe for this season, shoes, loafers and menswear of course. I personally like to switch styles on a daily base, from casual to classy menswear. Depending on what’s in my agenda on a daily base I like to dress myself as much related to the event etc. Still classic menswear is my favorite. But in downtime it is always nice to wear a casual look paired with a good pair of jeans and sneakers.

I recently got in touch with my connections in Los Angeles and got across Talentless a brand that is recently started by Scott Disick ( Aka Kourtney Kardashians her ex) or as I know him as Lord Disick. I like the name Talentless as it is really a smash into the face of haters and anti social media people out there. Who ever thought they got that far right with a reality show? The menswear from Talentless is made of ultra soft cotton and made for casual days. From Tracksuits to T-shirts and hoodies. Also I love the fact that 3% of each sale will be donated to the cancer support organization.

In this blogpost I have included 1 of the 4 outfits that I got form Talentless, totally in love with the red vintage color for this season.Cut and dyed from our premium heavyweight cotton, the basic hoodie gets the crystal treatment in this unique small-batch release of low-immersion dyed garments. It is released In honor of Scott Disick its birthday. I love a good hoodie on a breezy summer afternoon or when it cools down on summer evenings paired with a good pair of jeans and sneakers.

What do you think of this first look of Talentless? More looks will be published over the summer season including several tops. All shots are made with the Canon Eos77D with a EF 50mm lens.

The second item that I wear is a basic T-Shirt from the T-shirt line that is produced for Scott Disick it’s birthday. This shirt is cut from premium weight, pigment dyed, and potassium-finished 100% cotton for an ultra-soft feel and perfect relaxed fit.

All details of the outfit can be found on my Instagram Page or visit the website of Talentless by clicking here

Enjoy,

Laurent Sebastian

Coat season with Jofama

Hi Guys,

It has been a bit quite the last couple of weeks on my blog. Sorry for that, but there are coming many new blogposts in the next couple of weeks.
So back to topic, it’s fall, it’s chilli and I want to show you one of my favorite outfits for this fall season.

 

The coat is from Jofama which is known as a perfect affordable jacket,coat and parka maker. What I personally love of Jofama is that the quality is very good and the outwear are in a very fair price range.

So for my outfit I decided to go casual with THE must have this season. A classic coat as every year

The fabric of this coat is very soft and warm and the fitting is pretty good. I love it when the coat is not too oversized and you can actually see the shape of the body. For me a coat is a piece you buy every year and if you stay in shape you can wear it almost every fall and winter season. I must say i am bit of coat and jacket guy as i have over 40 jackets and 10 coats for the Fall season.
I combined the coat with a bright blue button shirt and a dark blue chino. I think it`s important to have atleats one bright neutral color in your outfit that it doesn’t get to boring. Last but not least I chose some classic loafers in a grey colorway as fall is mostly the last season of the year that allows you to wear loafers.

Let me know what you think about this outfit

French Riviera summer looks by Nikolaj d’Etoiles

Hi everyone,

As you all might have seen i am spending this summer in The French Provence/ The French Riviera. Why? Because it has it all! A great climate, nature, beachclubs, vineyards and ofcourse it has so many locations to shoot content. You can shoot the dopest shots on every corner of the street. But let’s skip that and try to enjoy the summer holidays!

One of my favorite looks from the collections. It’s dressed and sophisticated.

I am wearing:

  • Hugo Blue Check Virgin wool track pants with matchy jacket

These Track-pants are made form a lux lightweight summer virgin wool. Cut slim for a tailored yet relaxed feeling

 

In June i was flown in to Stockholm to attend some events and to close some exciting deals with Swedish fashion brands. One of them is Nikolaj d’Etoiles, a cool and dressed Swedish brand inspired by the French Riviera lifestyle.  I met the founder in Stockholm and we had the best time and same interests. I mean me a ‘French looking guy’ and a French Riviera inspired brand. What i love the most about this brand is that the collection is made by the best materials which makes the tailoring outstanding. All items are perfectly tailored and dressed but yet easy to wear. I had a pool party in Stockholm and was dressed in one of the outfits from Nikolaj d’Etoiles with both that classy touch and casual look.  It is really showing the French riviera lifestyle in it’s collections as it has basic items with yet goldon features such as zippers or buttons.  I am a huge fan of the current Summer collection as it has items for every kind of occasion, from red carpet to a pool party in my case.

 

A easy look whilst walking around in the streets of Gordes

I am wearing the James hot Orange Nylon Swim shorts in this photo. You can easily wrap this short into a casual or more luxurious outfit. ( See photo below) I also noticed that Orange is my new color for summer, it’s fresh and fancy. Both swimshort and jacket are slimfit and made of 100% poyamide which makes it easy to dry after you took a dive.

 

Super easy look in Stockholm after meeting the Royal princes of Sweden.  The tailored Hugo pants with a plane white polo of Nikolaj d’Etoiles. Finished with loafers and a Goyard clutch. Minimalistic and yet luxurious.

 

I could really recommend you to have a look on the website of Nikolaj d’Eoiles and check their collection.  Click here to get to the website.

 

All the best

#Connectednotdistracted Kronaby x Matias Varela

 

Hey Guy,

It has been a while since I wrote a new article here due my many trips and projects. But I am very excited about this article as last weekend has been an absolute great one. I was flown in to Stockholm (Sweden), it was my first time ever in Stockholm. I was there for the new campaign #Connectednotdistracted of Kronaby and to meet their new Global Ambassador! Of course I knew who it was but we could not reveal it before the 19th of April… Kronaby is part of Anima, a company specializing in purposefully designed smart, connected products. They created a timepiece that honors their love for classic watches. On the outside, it’s an authentic and beautiful timepiece made of materials and components that will stand the test of time. Its magic lies on the inside: They created a movement that can do more than just keep time.  And I worked with Kronaby Sweden for about a year now as i think their story and focus is exceptional.

 

Once arrived in Stockholm city I checked in at the Nobis Hotel, which is a 5 star Hotel and i think one of the best ones out there. ( More about this ony blog later) Upon arrival in the suite I found a new Kronaby watch waiting for me, the new ss18 model! In the evening it was time to finally meet the Kronaby family and the brand ambassador. The venue for the night was Dramaten (The Royal Dramatic Theatre ) a very elegant place. Once arrived at Dramaten it was time to meet Matias Varela the ambassador for Kronaby, you might know this talented actor from the series Narcos on Netflix. This was the big reveal of Matias as he is the new face and ambassador for Kronaby!  It was so cool and interesting chatting with him, his humor and down to earth personality really made it easy to talk about private and business life. Once chatting around with Matias and some other bloggers from different parts of the world, it was time to start seeing the campaign that the Kronaby family and Matias Varela have worked on. #Connectednotdistracted stands for living in the presence. We are all so focused on our smartphones that we forget to actually enjoy the moments with friends or family. Since social media took a huge part in our society it really got us distracted from the reality. Kronaby watches made it possible to filter your notifications from your phone to avoid unnecessary time in your screen. Think about personalized notifications who make it able to make photo’s with one press on the button of the watch, or picking up phone calls. I use the features step counter and find my location as I sometimes cross locations who are great to shoot for the future.

 

 

We had a great 4 diner course with a lovely table setting to chat with other bloggers and press. I had the luck to sit with the Kronaby family itself which was as nice as we used to communicate on email before (Without having a face in front of you). After diner it was time to have some drinks at the open bar and mingle with the crowd! I think the night ended at 1pm, because we had a busy day after such as shooting content and a lunch with the Kronaby family at the Strand. This is a nice venue located in the very heart of Stockholm. (Harbor).

The kronaby event in Stockholm was a really great experience to never forget. The team is lovely and i’ve met so many people with great stories. It really felt like a close family with same interests. Unfortunately I was not able to discover all parts of Stockholm as I had a busy schedule with business partners and the Kronaby family. But for sure I will return any time soon.

Shirt : Hugo Boss

Jacket : Rock & Blue Sweden

Belt : Louis vuitton

Gabba Denim X Laurent Sebastian looks for SS18

Hey guys,

I’m working on some awesome projects at the moment which you will see in the coming weeks. One of them is the collaboration with Gabba Denim which is know for their use of high quality fabrics in their collections. For SS18 we are collaborating to highlight the beautiful spring/summer collection. This collection will show many flower prints in the shirts and bright jeans models. Jackets are one of the key items in this collection to. Flower prints are really a trend this summer in the fashion industry combined with a fresh pair of jeans.

 

As you might have noticed spring is in it’s full glory, so it’s time for some color blocks. Flowerprints and khaki colored items are a must have for the SS18 season. In the photo above i’m wearing a basic white shirt with the flower button shirt and at last a army green pants from Gabba’s new collection. I never really worn color before but Gabba Denim told me to start try some different colors instead of black and grey looks.

In the photo and video i”m wearing a ripped jeans, button shirt and black leather jacket by Gabba Denim. A leather jacket is a musthave to have in your closet, as you can wear it with casual outfits and the more elegant looks with a white button shirt. Personally i’m a huge fan of ripped jean aswell as it is so easy to wear with different looks and you can never go wrong with this jeans.

Arsante of Sweden and traveling

Hey guys,

 

As you might have noticed it has been a while since I wrote a blogpost here. Lately I have been incredible busy with projects and travels. One of them was the Marathon of Paris but I will tell you more about that later on my blog. What is really important in this blogpost is the travel luggage. Because I personally dislike to carry too much with me during travels and even on a casual day I don’t want to carry too much with me.

 

I always had one of my Louis Vuitton Keepalls with me in the past, because they are multifunctional and it matches with every outfit. The disadvantage of this bag is that you get jealous faces sometimes and perhaps attract attention from people with wrong intentions (Especially on International train stations). It made me think of using other bags for these situations to keep a low profile instead of wearing my Louis Vuitton and Hermes bags, I discovered Arsante of Sweden a Swedish brand who provides the finest quality in luxury briefcases, handbags and accessories. One thing that I imediately discovered was the eye for detail, each bag comes with a dust bag and box. This gives it a timeless and luxurious twist. You can really tell Arsante of Sweden has a good old on the go luxury bag where comfortable style has materialized in design dominated by clean shapes, minimalism, and excellent quality. A funny detail is that he silver pullers on these bags are exclusively handcrafted from vintage airplanes.

 

I could really feel and see the honest use of the best letter in the world. It’s very genuine leather and will last for a lifetime. Timeless, ascetic elegance is a sophisticated element to your work life. And the most important the bags are low profile and only the experts will see that this is an absolute luxe bag. I have 2 different models from Arsante of Sweden, one document bag and a weekender. The weekender is as convenient for me as it has one big silver zipper which makes it possible to open the bag fully until the bottom from every side. It has 2 little compartments in it for your phone or documents whilst traveling. The document bag is something completely else, it has space for your MacBook and small compartments for your phone and working stuff. This bag is as good as it offers you different compartments to organize your daily stuff and it keeps your documents in shape without cracks.. My final thought about my new Arsante of Sweden bags is that i couldn’t wish for a better adition to my bags collection. It gives you luxury and also all comfort to make you use the bag on the daily base, that’s best from both worlds.

Jacket favorites for SS18 by Laurent Sebastian

Hey guys,

So last week i recorded my first video in regards to my Jackets that i’ve worn on multiple posts on Instagram. This was my very first video as i always want to explore and create new things, so excuse the quality. As you all might have seen is that i am a huge fan of Jackets. Why? Because i am a fan of wearing basics but always want to give it a luxurious twist with a jacket. I mostly wear classic leather motorcycle jackets as they are timeless and so easy to wear with casual and classy outfits. Suede jackets are in my personal collection aswell as it offers the best fit and top of the line use of fabrics. I als am a huge fan of the ‘Denim’ jackets as they are really giving you this vintage american look. It took some years for me to appreciatte this model but it is definitely worth giving a try.

I own about 20 jackets and for this video i made a selection of jackets to wear for SS 18. As spring is coming up and requires some fresh jackets to wear with my outfits. I was kind of nervous whilst recording my first video, but i think it turned out pretty well at the end. Enough talking for now! Go check my first vlog!

 

For those who wonder which jackets i displayed in my Youtube video:

The unboxing piece is from : Gabba

All the other pieces you can find at: Jofama

CIFF #FW18 Edition X LAURENT SEBASTIAN

Hi Guys,

 

I just got back from Copenhagen. I was invited by the CIFF to fly in and visit the 3 day during fair which has a really known name in Europe and abroad. This was my second time at the CIFF as I visited the fair last summer as well. I’m a huge fan of the Scandinavian fashion as the style is very minimalistic and tailored, 2 things which are important to me. Plus the people are so much more ahead of fashion compared to other countries in Europe. So this was really a perfect way to discover some new brands for me.

 

After my touchdown in Copenhagen I went straight to the Bella Sky Hotel, luckily this Hotel is actually on a walking distance from the CIFF fair. I started the day with an amazing breakfast in the Bella Sky Hotel, they offer allot of healthy foods and BIO ones. This was another plus as I’m on a new food plan, so I could balance here as well. After this it was time to fresh myself up and get myself ready for my meetings. I actually had 10 meetings scheduled on my first morning at the CIFF. After entering the fair I really saw that the CIFF organization really paid attention to several details on the fair. It really gives you the feeling of a fashion experience and makes you curious to more.

 

 

Once I finished my first meetings of the day it was time to see some of my old friends on the fair that I met the last edition of the CIFF. We always have an amazing time talking about fashion, online marketing and private life. I found it important to help each other and give advice. This is what friendships are about. After walking around on the fair I really met so many great people and business partners. It is always nice to meet new people and people in real life after having so much email contact without a face :). It gives a better impression of yourself and the other. There were so many incredible brands on this fair and even ones that I didn’t hear about. (But glad that I know them now) The fair was really well organized as I got a VIP arrangement I could enter some pressrooms and little spaces to work on my laptop (Plus charger points for my phone). There was also plenty of food in the VIP rooms which is perfect as I am a foodie. Think about pasta’s, salads etc. 

 

 

For day 1 at the CIFF I selected this all black look. (Black just really dresses perfect in every way during the winter season)

The jacket is from the new SS18 collection of Jofama.

It is made of leather and suede parts finished with silver zippers.

The pouchette is from Goyard. 

It is so practical for me during the day or when I’m attending events. You can actually put allot in it such as my: Business cards, 2 phones, vlog camera and other things.

The sunglasses are selected my Jose Feliciano glasses.

These sunnies really matched with the outfit as they were black but finished with reflecting glasses which gave it a more edgy look. 

 

The room at the Bella Sky Hotel in Copenhagen

 

Enjoy

 

Best,

 

Laurent
