Coat – Vintage (Brick Lane), Blazer Underneath – Zara, Jeans – Topman, Boots c/o Kurt Geiger, Tote Bag – Asos
The essential, the one and only, the one that keeps you warm – yes I am talking about the perfect coat. Simple, long, short, a statement piece or a nice parker, he is the one who accompanies you the entire fall winter season. Especially during London Fashion Week, in my case London collections men, it is the most important choice to make in the morning since it’s too cold in London to really take your coat off. Luckily I am enjoying the privilege to live next to Brick Lane also known as the “paradise of vintage jackets and coats”. Naturally I went to buy some groceries and suddenly ended up dragging myself into a little vintage and second hand shop with a huge sign in front of their shopping window which said: “SALE”. You can finish the little story at this part and can guess what happened then …

To be honest with you I could write about hats the same way I write about coats. A hat makes an outfit complete in my opinion. I could wear hats each and every day. Well, I am actually about to do that since I got a new gorgeous brown hat from my best friend for my birthday. At this particaular day, day two of London Mens Fashion Week, it was probably not the best idea to wear a hat since it has been windy and rainy at the same time. At the end of the day I was about to chase my hat a couple of times after it fell off but i just couldn’t leave my little baby at home. After picking up my hat several times from the street I said to myself: “Simon, tomorrow you are not going to wear a hat again!”. Roughly 12 hours later you can probably guess what I was wearing, again. Or you can scroll down to see if you are right!

This scarf means a lot to me. I bought during my student exchange to New York about almost three years ago. Now I am wearing the scarf about 5 to 6 times a week and I won’t stop. I consider it as my statement piece to be honest. It just goes with everything, it’s bohemian, it’s warm, it’s just perfect. This time I didn’t wear it as usual – I tried to wear it almost like a tunic a little bit inspired by the last Burberry collection. Anyway, all in all it was such a nice experience at London Men’s Fashion Week this season and I cannot wait to what will happen next season.
