Hogging the limelight: Assaad Awad

It seems that nowadays everybody is into spikes, studs and a lot of more stuff related to goth style so it is the perfect time to introduce you to Assaad Awad just in case you don't know him yet.

ITEM OF DESIRE: The Cambridge Satchel Company® bag

First of all, sorry for the lack of updates in the past few days but I have been as busy as a bee with some personal stuff related with my new job.

As I am going to start my professional career in a fortnight more or less I have been thinking about what am I going to need for being prepared for my new 'way of life' so I thought that a worker bag will be required as soon as posible in order to face the long working days out of home.

It just took me 5 seconds to decide that one of my early purchases with my first wage should be a satchel from The Cambridge Satchel Company®, so I switched on my laptop and I entered the official website (link above) to see what they have for me.

I think I will get one of them in a dark, sober and professional color like navy blue, black or brown but I was quite surprised when I saw these fluor-coloured ones or the new 'batchel' which is a bit wider than the original satchel and with an upper handle, but as functional as the first one.

So now that the decision has been made it will just be a matter of time to spot me on my way to job with a satchel hanging on my shoulder.

April Showers

Now that April showers are here to stay I just can´t stop thinking about this see-through raincoat from Burberry Prorsum FW/2011 collection and how it will look covering my trench coat.

Simply enjoy how they looked like on the finale of the menswear fashion show when it started raining indoors.
