First Lookbook With Danyl!!🔥

*CAUTION; LIT POST BELOW* 🔥🔥🔥

Heeyy guysss!! I hope you’re doing great! After almost a year of talking and planning ahead of us my pal Danyl and I finally worked on something together!

We met in October if I’m not mistaken, it’s when school starts no? My old ass went back to school last year and there is where I met the man himself! We immediately became great friends and started planning ahead of us but then I dropped school and kept on chasing my dreams.

A time were I wanted to do more than I already do and work harder in promoting different fashion and confidence in Malta, hit me hard and I went on someone that I knew that had the same push and energy like me and here is the outcome! 

IMG_0017.jpg

We decided to go for this modern/vintage look in a modern location to make sure to get the contrast we wanted! We chose certain items that really took out the vintage out from the outfit. 

Our aim was to start strong and see what you guys think about us working together and also about what we can manage to bring you guys! A simple comment for us means a lot! It means support and push to do more and more, to get better and brainstorm better ideas to promote fashion!

Danyl and I might not have the same style, to be honest it’s literally different as Danyl is all out streetstyle and hypebeast when on the other hand I’m more of an all rounder, smart casual person with a difference that I love trying out different styles! What we have the same is the push to promote fashion here in Malta and our future plans, that’s what united us! 

I think I have said enough about how we met and our vision haha! 

Guys go check out this very first lookbook we worked on! Don’t forget to leave a comment somewhere either here or on my page or come message us! Also SHARE SHARE SHARE!!!! ❤️ We are already planning on something great ahead which you will….. 😅 I’ll tell you later! 

In the mean time check out our video!!! 

A huge thank you goes to Ian Bray and my girl Kaya Buhagiar for the amazing work they did! Lastly don’t forget to subscribe to DANYL’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL!

Fashion Week 2018: The Gagliardi Show!

HEEEEYYYYYYY!! It’s been a while you guys!! I haven’t had any chancee to write any posts had a bit of a rough time at work and also some stress came saying hi 🤦🏼‍♂️. ANYHOW I’m here now and I’m finally writing this post!

Another year and another missed week of outstanding fashion creations and great vibes. I can say that this is one of the best and saddest weeks for me as I basically lose it all due to it’s held in the months that we’re very very busy so I can’t take any leave to attend to these shows as I would need to do everything in a hurry if I go after work 😓 

I definitely can’t miss the Gagliardi show, it’s one of the most shows I look for in this week! With every single piece that goes out, my heart started running so fast that I couldn’t stop it and I started doing that “dumb” smile haha that kind of smile that I have never seen anything like it before!

Let me start showing you some of the looks that were showcased in this show and then I’ll continue talking later!! The following shots are taken by Steven Muliett.

Which of these looks do you guys mostly like?!

This years show was very different for me. I got the chance to connect with more models that walked for Gagliardi and also the chance to style the models (Not for the show)! Seeing them coming in the shop, talking with them about modelling, showing them some of my photos and hearing feedback from them was just amazing! 

As they walked I supported them and after the show I also engaged with them on how the show and they were amazing and also complimenting me on how I was dressed, BASICALLY I WAS HIGH UP IN THE SKY ALL NIGHT!!

This year I was also accompanied by my beautiful girl Kaya, which was her very first fashion week show she ever attended. Let me tell you from now, we nailed it!
Check out how we looked!

What do you guys think of our look?
Isn’t she beautiful or is she? ❤️

Moving to another set of looks! The two following sets of shots are taken by Gordon Formosa from Go Raw Photography!

Which look of this set did you mostly like?!

The feeling of the show, the styles, the models, the energy the crowd had and most especially the hard work from the stylists, designers and management of Gagliardi truly made an unforgettable night! Last years show was great but this one was SUPER!

Here comes the second and last set of styles! 


Which look of this set did you mostly like?!

As the fashion week itself came to an end so has this blog post! Huge well done to everyone especially to the models I knew and also got to meet, Neil Scerri, Omar Farrugia, James Spiteri Staines, Jean Paul Farrugia and last but not least, the award winning Mister World Malta Daryl Azzopardi!

Ending all of this with the photo of the brain and hard work behind Gagliardi, Mr Sam Borg!

MY FIRST TIMBERLAND RUNNERS!!!

HEY YOU GUYS!! Been a while since I wrote a great blog post, been so so busy with work since I returned to working full time now it takes a lot of my time! I hope you guys are doing well! 

31384180_1902335253172007_8862935104314408960_n.jpg

I kinda spoiled this post with the title already haha but I am really hyped I got my hands on these beauties! I had my eyes on Timberland’s shoes for years but I never really thought of getting one myself as I’m not much a type of boots person although I really want to get my hands on a pair of Chelsea boots but the style is very different.

When I saw that Timberland launched their first pair of runners for this year I went crazy! The design is super modern, colours blend amazing with multiple outfits and comfortability is AMAZING!! 

31369078_1902335306505335_7482542193157079040_n

The design of these kicks is quite lovely! The mixture of the material is very interesting, the sole design is amazing, the lace design is also very interesting and finally everything ends up in one super comfortable runners!

So far I have only wore them on a very casual look and they looked great, I am thinking of putting them up a notch and style them a bit smarter and see what I manage to create! I’m sure I’ll manage to work something out 😅!

Go check out Urban Jungle Malta and try on this pair of runners!

Something new that you guys might not know, I have been working on making some bracelets! The bracelet I’m wearing in these photos is one of the best ones I made so far and more to come! My idea about this is to start building my brand starting very small from jewellery! I really love bracelets and I’ve always wanted to get myself bracelets therefor now I’m making my own bracelets! 

What do you guys think of this idea? It would be great to hear what you think!!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Styling Alex Savvateeva – ETM Malta Model!

Hey guys it’s Friday! That means the weekend will soon be with us! What are your plans for this weekend? Tell me down below in the comment section!

As you have read in the title, this post is about my styling. My recent experience in Belgium with ETM had a huge impact on me, as I tested my styling skills on an international shoot. I styled 8 models having with 3 complete looks each.

A couple of the photographers from that event managed to finish some photos of the models I styled so I said to myself, “Why not blog about it?”, and here it is haha! The model featured below is Alex Savvateeva, one of our young talented beauties. 

Alex comes from a Russian background and we all know Russian style includes beautiful fur. Luckily enough, Alex had a sleeveless jacket with fur and I really wanted to use it to keep the style connected to her nationality. This is a youthful look with a touch of a sophisticated mature style connected to the faux-fur. I love introducing new styles that use elements of a mature look to enhance a younger look.

In this style, I decided to go more youthful compared to the previous look. Using the bodysuit with a print saying “Trendy” gives it a younger taste with a bit of classy kind of street look with the grey skirt and the few rips at the bottom. As a stylist I like to try on different types of styles on the same model to see which outfit they can rock most and also introducing them to different styles.

Finalising this post, here is the photo I love most. Modelling with this young beauty is always a pleasure. We have another shot together from the experience in Belgium but it’s not yet finished.
