The biggest trend this Spring Summer season? PRINTS! Bright and fun. Stripes have been re-polished, taking on a whole new, modern feel. Horizontal, vertical or oblique? It doesn’t matter! As long as you wear stripes, you’re fine. The floral print trend continues, as does the foulard print, but with a twist of patchwork. Camouflage, postcards and animal prints work too. There’s only 1 rule: no limits! Dare to combine different kind of prints or rock the head-to-toe printed look. Boys, it’s time to stand out!

Some months ago I’ve posted about Antoine + Stanley, an Australian shoe (and accessory) brand I discovered  and who really deserves the attention (Brand to discover: Antoine + Stanley). I’m in love with this brand, so it’s no surprise I love the Spring Summer 2013 collection. Designed for guys who appreciate – and demand – designer shoes, but still want value for money, this collection is young, cool, urban and edgy. Must-have beauties in every fashionisto’s closet! There are too many lovely pairs, so I’ve picked my 5 favourite ones:

Available on Asos.com and Antoineandstanley.com.

A bag made of tents, anyone? For its Spring Summer 2013 accessories collection, TENT takes discarded tents left behind at the Summer music festivals to create rugged, utilitarian, outdoor bags. Casual, nice and good for Mother Nature, what more do you want? The perfect accessory to spice up your Summer outfits without doing an effort. Available at YMC, Sefton and Fenwick Bond Street. Go get it, boys!

I’m still obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring Summer 2013 ad campaign. A perfect Italian Summer, shot by Domenico Dolce in Taormina (Sicily), starring Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Zuzanna Bijoch, Kate King and a bunch of ‘normal’ Sicilians. Yes, please! I love the entire campaign, but these are my favourites.
