i love wearing matte and shine textures especially if executed in a very monochromatic approach especially in gunmetal grey. I wanted to wear this dual zip biker jacket by M Barretto. Love the matte shine when the light hits the surface and the handfeel of the fabric. I alos love the pleating and angular panels of the jacket because it goes well with the pinstriped(linear quality) trousers in metallic grey. To counter the lines and rigidity I wore this cable knit beret which is more visually flowy. Echoing the loops of the cable knits I wore this braided chain necklace.

Since I want it to look like a sunny outdoorsy shot I wore these glasses that remind me of Alex Wang's pointy cat's eye (with softer pointed edges) but with a marbled effect which reminds me of mother of pearl.

whoa.im here to give monsterific comments again.haha

this look is tough & powerful,plus edgy rolled into one package.

grey loving biker meets punk rocker meets andre-rific hair = HYPED to the millionth.with a heart on top.

i do love the jacket.it screams bad boy madness.super dope.plus the details of the whole ensemble with the interesting loop necklace & the cat's eye glasses with the marble effect on it.it's 50s inspired right?i seem to see tavi wearing those kind of specs.plus you are wearing filipino brands.that i believe is very hype worthy too above all.

Wow another amazing look from yourself!! Love the textures you have used with this outfit especially how you've have the cable knit beret with the matte shine on the rest of your clothing. You've styled this to perfection and those awsome boots and sunglasses finish the outfit of nicely.
