Bonjour Mesdames, Mesdemoiselles et surtout…Messieurs,
One of the most stimulating things about summer (beside that it is warm, comfortable, joyful, playful, bright, sunny, happy, humid, sticky, AC friendly, sandy, rooftop parties…) is the fact that gentlemen can finally wear lighter colours. I mentioned some possibilities in my last article, here is one of them: Earthy colours.
Earth tones colours, as the name states, come from our natural environment: brown, tan, green, as well as different shades of greys. These colour schemes are best used when mixed and matched, such as this jacket and trousers. The result is warm, chic and perfect for a classy yet understated summer look. Matched with a white shirt and blue knitted tie and pocket square, the effect is complete. Of course, brown Oxford shoes and belt are in order here.
Jacket: Ted Baker (The Bay)
Shirt: Clusier (Clusier habilleur)
Tie : Sur mesur
Belt : Canali
Shoes : Rudy’s Paris

“Sartorialto?” I asked. Francisco Randez, the ball’s spokesperson, was looking dapper as usual. He smiled. It wasn’t really a guess, few days before, he actually told us about his love for the brand – And we knew his appreciation of the fabric and the materials. Gathered to raise funds for Sainte-Justine‘s neonatal center, hundreds of young professionals were just as chic and dashing. My favorite look was probably Stan Colson‘s perfectly coordinated outfit. When I saw him, few weeks later, in a cocktail party at the Ritz – He didn’t disappoint. But that’s another story (I’ll tell you more about this guy on another post – I feel like having a tour in his closet!). Other gentlemen were just as gorgeous. Special mention to the Sur-Mesure gang (sixth picture) who looked fantastic in their London-Like suits with a twist of color, and prints mix-and-match.
Moving on to the Ladies. Cut-out dresses were definitely the most trendy at the Ball. In many shapes, many movements, mostly black or white. My favorite look however was the Saint-Laurent Girl gorgeous black outfit (first picture). There was something timeless about it, very powerful, but sensual in the same time. Very Catherine Deneuve. My second favorite look was Le Cercle des Leaders‘s fierce Marie-Eve, who rocked a gorgeous Jean-Paul Gaultier. Super fiery in the top, with full of movement in the bottom. The Edgy Romance.
Vive le Style!
