Dressing in the Details
A NEW DAY BEGINS
With a packed day ahead, Adrian loves to start his day early where he gets the extra time to enjoy the relative quiet of the early hours. A workout and a wholesome breakfast is definitely a part of this space. “I go for a run
and usually have some simple eggs and toast or Greek yogurt with fruit and oats. I usually have a couple of video calls and meetings, so I like to dress a bit casually for that time of the day.” Post his workout, he wears his polo by Monsieur Fox, bespoke trousers by Sartoria Misura, shoes are vintage Artisan Tassel, glasses by TBD eyewear and completes the look with his 1967 Rolex Oysterdate watch.
COFFEE WITH FRIENDS
After a crazy day at work filled with constant phone calls, catching up with friends is always fun for Adrian and the perfect time for him to dress down. He chooses to wear his bespoke jeans from 3x1 NYC with a long sleeve polo by Monsieur Fox, boots by Zonkey Boot, TBD eyewear and his 1968 Omega Speedmaster watch. “A dark pair of denim always look great, and can be worn with almost any combination of shirt and shoes, so not only are they comfortable but give you great options, too,” Adrian says.
A BREAK TO CATCH UP
After getting into full work mode filled with planning the new collection and supervising the traction of his sales, Adrian loves to try out the new restaurants in the city during his lunch hour. “Lunch is one of the best ways to continue building relationships with people so I always try to find someone I haven't seen in a while and
catch up. It's a great way to informally talk about what's new, while also staying in touch, and of course, trying some great new food!” Adrian shares. Since he's on his way from work, his look is formal with his bespoke trousers by Sartoria Misura, a Cordone 1956 shirt, shoes by Zonkey Boot, shades by TBD eyewear and the final touch with the tie and pocket square by Monsieur Fox and his Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox watch.
TIME TO NETWORK
After a whole day of meetings, design decisions, writing his blog and planning his upcoming collection, Adrian
usually ends the latter half of the day by having to attend a work event. Being a fashion influencer, he believes it's important to understand the dress code of the event, but one must add his personal style as well. “Depending on the type of event, you can wear anything from a full tuxedo to even a casual t-shirt and jeans look. Generally,
I like to stick with a few tailored pieces, but without a tie, to keep the look more relaxed but still appropriate
for just about anywhere I might go.” To end his day, Adrian steps out in his bespoke trousers by Sartoria Misura, a green polo from Simon Crompton x Luca Avitabile, his tobacco suede penny loafers by Zonkey Boot with his Monsieur Fox pocket square and his Universal Geneve Tri Compax from Momentum watch.
