Oroma's Therapy

LTH favourite Oroma Elewa  recently added Shop Owner to her never ending fantastic list of 'things I happen to do really well'. What I love about these items is that they're sourced from her various travels around the world which makes every piece powerfully personal.

In other news I'll be on a bit of a blogging hiatus for the next couple of weeks (the psychology degree...she beckons) but stay tuned as I will return with a fun outfit post captured by none other than the photo-aficionado herself Dudu Luthuli

Nomia SS '14

There's a power and a purity in simplicity; New York based fashion label Nomia  is a testament to that. It caters to the woman with a proclivity for minimalist clothing with masculine influences and urban edge. Their items are understated but interesting, even arresting. I want all if these items. All of them. Just saying.

The Kings of Sartor | Art Comes First

Personally, menswear (especially smart wear) has always been about two things: co-ordination and fit. If you can thoughtfully co-ordinate your outfit and make it seem like tiny tailoring-fairies immaculately sowed it on your body then you've done well, chap.

I have recently learned however that my rule of two is, if not flawed, then slightly lacking. This week I was schooled by the kings of social sartorialism Art Comes First who released their recent project titled, "The Discplines of Dressing". These short films teach men (and women) about the subtle intricacies of menswear and although the premise of these films is to show others the various rules of style this collective adheres to, I  believe that they are also disclosing a few golden secrets about the well-dressed-gentleman. They call them the "Disciplines of Dressing" and I call them "How To Go From 'Nice' to 'Daaaammmnnn' ".  Its a fitting title.

Check out part one and two of the six-part film below (and for more click here ).
