Adidas X Parley Campaign against Plastic Pollution!

Hey guys! How have you been doing lately? I hope everything is great! Currently I’m passing during one of the worst time of the year you can say, as  work gets harder due to many occasions and people ALWAYS leave it till the very end to decide to buy a suit, why? hahaha!!

Anyyhooowww let’s not get you bored with my work struggle, lately I have been coming across news regarding a new campaign against pollution but I didn’t take notice of it due to being very busy and barely noticing anything online but I decided to search about it. What I knew was that it had to do with Adidas and nothing else but I went through a lot of searches and discovered that Adidas have teamed up with Parley which is and I quote 

“PARLEY IS THE SPACE WHERE CREATORS, THINKERS, AND LEADERS COME TOGETHER TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR THE BEAUTY AND FRAGILITY OF OUR OCEANS AND COLLABORATE ON PROJECTS THAT CAN END THEIR DESTRUCTION.”

Only that paragraph is enough to show you how much Parley is amazing! To make it more amazing they teamed up with Adidas to create a super new collection!

“Adidas says and I quote WE ARE WORKING WITH PARLEY TO PREVENT PLASTIC FROM ENTERING OUR OCEANS AND TO TRANSFORM IT INTO HIGH-PERFORMANCE SPORTSWEAR. SPINNING THE PROBLEM INTO A SOLUTION. THE THREAT INTO THREAD.” #ADIDASPARLEY

They called the shoes “UltraBoost Parley” which is made from up-cycled waste from beaches and coastal communities that is intercepted before it reaches the ocean! 

Check out some of the designs they made for both men and women!

This NMD_CS1 Parley Primeknit shoes is my most favourite from this collection! The colour, the design, the material, the shape ALL OF IT IS AMAZING!!

 

Women Creations;

This one is the same as the men’s as this is the main piece of the collection.

Ultraboost_Parley_Shoes_Black_BB6264_04_standardUltraboost_Parley_Shoes_Blue_CQ1708_04_standard

For the women’s collection they decided to put more colour in the shoes which I associate this last shoes with the colour of the ocean and corals! 

I believe that this movement will make a huge impact as the ocean is one of the most important things that we as humans need! The ocean might separate us as a country but it connects us as people! It gives us beautiful lakes and water streams were we can enjoy ourselves with people we love and no-one wants to sit down near a water stream seeing it filled with plastic pollution!! 

To end this post I’m going to ask you for two things and they are very simple! Go to this link right here PARLEYget to know more about the cause and if you scroll down you will find “Take The Pledge” go ahead and take it! 

The second one is, don’t forget to share this post with your friends to share this movement! Let’s give a helping hand as well!

I took the pledge, will you?

Asos Gift Ideas For Him!

Hey guys! Happy easter to you and your family!! This is my very first post for my new category “Shopping Links“! Next week I will be officially out of the teens age! I can’t believe I will be twenty, reason why is because I barely look that age hahah!

With my birthday coming ahead of me, I thought it would be great to make this post and look for some gift ideas for both men and women! For the first one I decided to go with the men.

If your guy is the sporting / casual type of guy I’m sure he would love these wireless JBL ear phones! They are great for sports, especially for those who love running this is really a must! They are sweat proof, great for night jogs as they have reflective wires and they also have an eight hour lifetime which is a great amount of time! 

For the classier guys, I got you covered with a matching handkerchief and lapel pin! They go perfectly together and are very classy and minimal! Would surely be great on a black suit, white shirt with two open buttons and some cool dressy shoes! Keep it classy but not too classy for a summer night event!
Fashion Week will soon be with us 😉

The dressy watch! One of the essential things a guy must have! See if he has a real classy watch that he wears for formal occasions, if he doesn’t this is definitely the right one for him! This watch goes perfectly with a great fitting suit and can also be dressed down to a more casual look. The Stratford watch isn’t the ordinary watch as it’s a bracelet watch meaning there are no clip on straps or anything like that, you put it on just like a bracelet! What more than a watch that goes with multiple if not all styles and easy to put on?!

If he’s a perfectionist or if he needs to clean his shoes this goes just right with the watch! The Peter Werth shoe shine kit! It Comes in a well designed foldable case, brush, shoe horn and cleaning cloth!

For those more elegant and sophisticated guys, I got you covered with this amazing Vivienne Westwood Luxury Watch! It is water resistant up to 50 metres and comes with a real leather strap! 

And if you ladies are planning a romantic night, you can spice it up with some hot lingerie! Here are two different lingerie styles as not all ladies have the same style! They both have their own way of showing passion and hotness.

The first lingerie shows more flesh and is great for the adventurous ladies out there! If you’re a more of a simple and closed person you still can wear lingerie, the second one shows a bit less flesh at the bottom and has a lovely design! 

Even though this gift is kinda more for you than for him, believe me if you show your guy that you’re putting effort he will definitely love the gift! 

That’s all from me! I hope you guys liked this post and also the idea of my new category, would love to hear what you think! Hopefully with this post I managed to give you some gift ideas! 

If you like any of the products above, simply click on the photo and you’ll be directed right on the product! 

Happy Easter Everyone! 
See ya next time!

#OOTMMAR18 : Baseball Player

Hey you guys hope you’re all doing great! Been a while since I posted my last blog post, unfortunately I got super busy with events this month! I recently got back from yet another successful trip abroad on modelling in Belgium! In three and a half weeks we are heading to Italy! 

As I said in one of my previous posts, each month I will be posting a special “#OOTM” post. For those that don’t know what it means, its “Outfit Of The Month“, were I will be showcasing a full outfit or most of the items from some of shops under the management of the Hudson Group Malta!

For this month I decided to go with River Island. I can say I fell in love with this brand, they are being so diverse at the moment which is one of the main reasons I created this blog for!

I also had the pleasure to be part of their latest campaign #labelsareforclothes! It was a huge honour for me being part of this campaign! Here are some shots I took! ❤️

 

Let us continue on this month style! As I was planning the style, I was thinking of a name for it but nothing came to my mind so as I posted some photos on my Instagram,  I asked my followers to try and come up with a name for it and so they did! They came up with the “Baseball Player Look” and as I checked out my shots I realised that in a way it does look like it! 

28767865_552435498463778_1315402904_o

For this one I chose a long sleeved top with two different contrasting materials from one of their latest collection, matched with my cropped Asos chinos! To kind of break the black colour I wore my white long basketball socks from Nike and to finish the look I wore my most favourite kicks, the Nike huaraches from Urban Jungle!

It has a zipper that when you open it you’ll have 3 sections, 2 open sections on the sides and a zipped section in the middle mostly to keep your coins inside.

What is a “Fashion Blogger”?

Hey guys! 

Hope you all had a great weekend! To start the week I finally decided to write this post which was approved by some of my fellow followers! I already had done this research before in order to develop myself, be different and better but this time I made a deeper research for you guys!

What is a “Fashion Blogger”?

That’s the biggest question fashion enthusiasts mostly ask themselves! I myself was one and when I made my research I was able to grow and become a legit fashion blogger! I think most of the people think fashion blogging is very easy, just pose with some cool outfits, make a facebook page and post them and then you’re a fashion blogger.

That’s not even close to being a fashion blogger. Primarily, to be a fashion blogger one has to own his own website and writes blog posts and not just about a cool style you created! This hobby/job carries more than you think, it’s a mash up of a Fashion Influencer, Outfit Blogger and also Fashion Editor! Let me break these down;

Fashion Influencer;

This person influences people to be themselves when they wear something and also collaborates with other brands to get discounts for their followers. In order to work with great brands one must have a great amount of followers and also engagement, especially on Instagram which is the leading social media app that fashion influencers and brands use to promote themselves!

Outfit Blogger;

This person aims in trying to create trends or some different styles that no one seen or barely seen out in the streets! They blog about their style in saying how they got inspired, mentioning the clothing brands name for the chance of maybe being featured on their pages and also influencing other people! 

An outfit blogger is an influencer as well but aims more to create his/her own styling ideas choosing his/her own brands!

Fashion Editor;

This person is more likely to be a magazine writer, following how fashion is evolving, trends changes and searching about fashion houses. They can also style photoshoots or write about a certain events. These used to hold the front rows in all important fashion events but now they share it with influencers and bloggers!

_______________________________________

To be a legit fashion blogger one must own these three areas! It takes time, devotion and patience, for example I have been researching so I can know more on how I will be writing this post that it took me a week of research and find time whenever I could and also wrote this post after midnight as that was the moment I had some free time. 

For me fashion blogging is a job, I put time and devotion into every post, I might not get paid for it and barely get any feedback or attention but I keep myself positive in whatever I do and motivate myself to be better! I’m sure that time will come!

The following posts are some posts that clarify what I’m saying is true,
that I am a legit fashion blogger;

  • Fashion Editor; Previous post featuring the latest collection of Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid! I looked up why they chose this theme, what those the theme mean/refer to them and also chose the most outfits I personally liked!

  • Fashion Influencer; This was the first time I collaborated with a brand! I had the honour to work with one of the brands I really love, Ray-Ban! I worked on their last optical campaign of last year and also featured on Vision Opticians alongside some known Maltese characters, which for me was a pleasure to work with on the same campaign! I was requested to take specific photos showing off the optical glasses I was given to feature!

My Very First Big Brand Campaign!

  • Outfit Blogger; Lately I have started collaborating with Hudson Group Malta! I will be creating different styles on a monthly base and blog about the look! For last months style I wore a navy blue roll neck from River Island and matched it with a pair of blue washed jeans and brown double monk shoes from Gagliardi!

TOMMYNOW “Drive” Spring 2018 Collection!

Hey you guys! I got something great for the fashion freaks and all those who love Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid! On February 25th these two amazing beings showcased yet another astonishing collection in Milan!

Tommy partnered up with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and to celebrate he came up with this tasteful collection fusing fashion with Formula One focusing in both male and female! Another reason for this collection is due to Tommy’s love for racing and Gigi’s fast-paced lifestyle!
The TOMMYNOW is built on his signature “See Now, Buy Now” making all collection available immediately to purchase in more than 70 countries!   

I personally saw the show online and felt their adrenaline and Formula One vibes, I can only imagine what I would have felt if I was actually there, feeling everybody’s emotions, the lighting, music, the actual sounds of the roaring cars and much much more!

Running down the lane we found all the family HadidGigi Hadid her sister Bella Hadid and their brother Anwar Hadid and the beautiful Winnie Harlow, the mostly known for his jaw line and icy blue gaze, Jeremy Meeks aka “Hot Felon” and much more talented models!

Having said all of this I’m sure you are waiting for my choices! I will be labelling their looks as they had 63 looks including both genders so you can easily go on the looks you like and purchase the items! 

Here they are! 

As the saying goes “Ladies first” so I will be starting with the ladies collection! 

Going from left to right the looks are;

Look 1, Look 2, Look 8, Look 29, Look 37, Look 47, Look 60, Look 62 and finally look number 63 ending with the beautiful Gigi Hadid!

 

Breaking down this selection, the best three looks I really liked are Look 1, Look 29 and Look 63!

 

Tell me which are your favourite looks down below in the comments! 

On to the next part, the male section! I felt that Tommy put most of his vintage nostalgia in the male’s collection giving it a mix of modern racing with vintage style!

Going from left to right the looks are;

Look 17, Look 24, Look 31, Look 41, Look 42, Look 56 and finally Look 57!

 


Breaking down this selection, the best three looks I really liked are Look 24, Look 41  and Look 57!

Tell me which are your favourite looks down below in the comments! 

The whole collection is available locally in all shops so make sure to not waist much time as I have a feeling that this collection will reach the “finish line” really quickly haha!

That is all from the new collection of TommyxGigi! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and make sure to comment your favourite looks!

See ya next time!

Smart Casual Look!

Hey you guys! Hope you are all doing great! On Monday I arrived from my recent experience in Sicily with ETM Malta! I worked with some amazing Italian photographers and also got to meet the Italian director and also meet again the Sicilian Director! It was truly an honour meeting and working with everyone of them and I already got some photos and they are looking SUPPERR!! 

This month I wanted to create a more classical look but still keeping it a bit casual. This look is definitely great for a sunny cold day in winter! For this combination I wore a navy turtle neck from River Island, washed blue jeans and brown monk shoes by Gagliardi to make the outfit stand out! 

28277824_1812616405477226_1535921908_o

The style is comfortable, classic and a bit casual making it just right for almost any occasion make it a dinner, hanging with the lads for a drink, going out with your girl or a simple stroll in the nature (like I did 😅)!

28276101_1812616652143868_1058236187_o

This turtle neck has really become one of my favourite winter styles so far as it is one of the important tops men need in their closet! No need to have a ton, just  3 classic colours maybe like black, navy blue and beige giving you different tones and styles!

Send me how you styled your turtle necks and I will share your look on my social media! 

That was all for this post guys! Hope you enjoyed it and stay tuned for the next one! Make sure to subscribe to my blog and follow me on Instagram @itskylemagri to keep yourself updated!

The HypeBeast Culture! 🔥

YO! What up dawwwgggggg??!!! Haha!

Hey Guys! Hope you are all doing great, we are closing in the mid-week! As yesterday I posted on my story regarding what you guys want me to blog about next, not long after a friend of mine messaged me and told me to write about the ‘HYPEBEAST’ culture and so I did!

What is a ‘HYPEBEAST’?

I did my own research to obviously bring you a legit post so I searched a bit and came across this “urban dictionary” post saying the following;

‘A Hype Beast is a kid that collect clothing, shoes, and accessories for the sole purpose of impressing others. Although the individual may not have a dime to their name they like to front like they are making far more then everybody else. Equipped with mommies credit card the Hype Beast will try his hardest to make sure he has every pair of Nike’s he saw Jay-Z wearing on 106 & Park.’

It honestly made me laugh because in a way it is true and quite savage 😅 . In a more simpler way HYPE means trendy item and BEAST means obsessed therefor these ‘HypeBeasts’ would be people who always following the biggest trends and would do anything to own any item from the  smallest to the biggest. This can also be meant for ‘sneakerheads‘ as most of the times a ‘HypeBeast‘ starts a conversation they will always include a pair of Nike or adidas kicks!

bape-adidas-dame-4-green-black-camo-1.jpg
Photo cred hypebeast.com

What Are Some Signs Of Being A ‘HYPEBEAST’?

Let me point out 5 of the signs that you or someone else can be a ‘HypeBeast’.

  • If you heard that there will be a ‘Supreme‘ drop coming up soon and you barely have enough money to live before the next pay-check you will still stay awake and do everything to at least get an item from that drop.
  • You would only feel really fashionable if you are wearing everything from a hyped brand from head to toe. There are two different ‘HypeBeasts‘ the one that really does not care about how he styles himself and colour coordinates everything but as long as he is wearing everything hyped he is good to go and then there is the true ‘HypeBeast‘ that even though he is wearing everything high-end he still gives importance to his sense of style and colour coordination, I hope you are the second one because if you are the first one well, you are just wasting your money on items that you do not deserve of wearing 🤷🏼‍♂️.
  • Every time you go out whether it is a very quick errand, a family outing or a night out with the lads, you will still gear-up to the full ‘HypeBeast‘ mode. The only thing that might stop you from gearing up to the fullest is not the location but the weather, the biggest enemy of a ‘HypeBeast‘ is the rain!
  • If you start talking with someone and they come up with a name of a brand and you never heard of it then for you that brand is nothing because you think that you know all the best brands in the world.
  • You are strongly influenced by what celebrities wear. In this culture the most celebrity looked after for his style is Kanye, he is more likely a being some sort of fashion guru to them.

How Can I Be A Proper ‘HYPEBEAST’?

Every design or collection has a story/theme behind it, you can search a bit regarding the piece you bought so you are not just only wearing it but you always know the meaning and feel a connection with the way you styled it.

If you think that this would be too much at least learn more about the actual brand of that piece for the same reason and also to save your ass from getting fooled around by other real ‘HypeBeasts‘ when they bring up a conversation about some brands or the style you are wearing. (LIFE SAVED)

Do not go out wearing all hyped out without no sense of fashion because you would end up being the joke of the day, whether you are wearing a very cheap item or a high-end one, you must always style it up as best as you could, the cost of the item will not make you look better if you style it bad on the contrary you might attract more bad attention and bad comments.


That is all for this post! Before ending this post I wanted to share with you a sick channel you should subscribe to! The person that gave me the idea about this post was Danyl Azzopardi a good friend of mine and also a huge ‘HypeBeast‘, like literally huge he never stops talking about this haha! He is a great guy to be around and also the right guy to ask if you would need to know more about this culture! 

Go subscribe to his channel below and keep an eye out for his videos!

What’s New With Gagliardi?!

Hey you guys! We are getting closer to the weekend! What have you got planned? My plans are work on Saturday as usual haha and on Sunday we are having another photoshoot event themed “Vintage” at the Aviation Museum in Ta Qali!

In this post I will be talking about some of the changes and new stuff that Gagliardi introduced this year! Let us start with their re-branding, as they changed their logo they also changed some small tags and colours within these tags. They have also changed a bit the white plain dress shirts packaging and I think also how it fits as I felt a slight change in material and fit which I liked. I will surely be missing the lion but this logo got a very classical look.

23319064_1661825427220922_7347787125307228485_n

Secondly, they have finally introduced the Gagliardi Bracelets, which I knew about for moonnthhsss and I was eagerly waiting for them to be released and finally they did! I am writing this post especially about them actually and the importance of wearing accessories. I also got some for myself and made a short video displaying them and really wanted to share it with you guys!

The bracelets are super classy and different, having a piece of metal or a similar material with the logo engraved in it and a golden bead to separate the design equally in some bracelets as you will see on the ones I have got! As you can think of, some of the beads have the famous marble design which gives that final classical look to the bracelet! 

Some might take small things like bracelets for granted to their styling but I will change your mind. Any sort of accessories whether it is a bracelet, a watch, a pen or anything which is an accessory will definitely increase your level of styling.

Let us take for example a simple smart modern look | White T-Shirt, Washed Blue Jeans and A Pair Brown Double Monk Shoes | it already sounds amazing but imagine if you would add just a simple brown beaded bracelet, your level of styling will automatically skyrocket! A simple thing that changes the game plan! Beaded bracelets can also be worn on street styles as I do.

We can take another example | Navy Blue Suit, White Dress Shirt, Burgundy Tie, Silver Tie Clip and once again Brown Double Monk Shoes | Can you get more classical than this? YES YOU CAN! Your shirt sleeves will eventually slide up with your movement or you would roll them up if it would be hot, don’t you think that having bare hands is not smart? Imagine having that outstanding silver watch that makes you look much smarter and classical! To really finish it up, you might think it is useless or you will not even use it, but one needs a classic pen in his inside pocket of a suit! Match it with your tie clip or watch. It looks very professional and quite smooth to pull out your own classic pen from your suit pocket and sign or whatever the action requires! 

Here is the video I made and some very close shots I took! Hope you guys like! Would really love to hear what you thought about the video! 

IMG_9210IMG_9211IMG_9209

These were my top favourite bracelets of their first collection, I really hope they come up with more cool designs and ideas in the coming months! If you would like to check out the rest of the collection, I am leaving the direct link below for you to check it out!
