Redbull's #ParadiseFound305

After wrapping up Miami Music Week the Redbull family invited me to The Mondrian Hotel on South Beach to kick back and reward all of the hardworking people of Miami. The cocktails were endless and who can complain about complimentary food? Starting Monday with a million dollar view surrounded by some of the coolest people in the city was all I needed to set the tone for this week. 

Cheers

An "Empowered You" Recap

This past Saturday I had the pleasure to team up with Puma to give live coverage of "An Empowered You" presented by Simons Sportswear. A 4 course event that entailed: brunch and mimosas, a panel of industry professionals giving their advice from their trajectory of success, live performances, and fashion shows presented by Puma and Angel Brinks. 

The highlight for me was Puma's show in honor of Black History Month that paid homage to the legacy of alumni legends with a collection commemorating David T. Howard High School paraphernalia. The historic Atlanta high school groomed plenty of notable leaders of the civil rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. being one of the most known, and of course "Clyde" himself. As a fan of Puma's "Clyde" collection I think the collection was fitting for this month as we celebrate all of the accomplishments of African Americans. 

The takeaways I got from this event all together, in particular advice from the inspiring panel was that giving up is never an option and there is no cut off time for your dreams. You need a team and as long as you continue to place people in an environment they can flourish in we all can progress in our community. 

Thanks for reading!

PUMA "Clyde" Suit Collection

Animal print footwear is a very daring step in the menswear world; a bold statement wherever your routine takes you. As a risk taker in the fashion world I think it's pretty fitting to have dibs on Puma's newest "Clyde" Suit Collection inspired by the flashy Walt Frazier during his prime. The shoe features zebra upper detaling, the iconic Puma form strip, and gold lace tips for a luxe finish. In signature color styles, these sneakers are ideal for stepping out the comfort zone and experimenting with texture and pattern. Limited edition sneakers, ripped denim, and a loosened shirt to catch the Miami breeze and I'm all set to kick it in the city. 

Thriving in a community of artists, stylists, designers and other creatives I knew these shoes fit my lifestyle perfectly for walks to my office to going out for evening drinks.  

Stepping into a new year with no limits, thanks Puma for allowing me to express and tell my story through style!

TR / RW Fall 2016 Collection

As the brisk weather greets us, it's time for heavier garments that suit the modern city dweller. Russell Westbrook has teamed up with True Religion for a second collection during Fall 2016. This line-up features destroyed knits, layered hoodies, and bleached denim.

The collection has a muted color palette with rugged textures that make for rad rebel looks. All about boldness and pushing the boundaries this collection is sure to fit the style of the risk-taker, the leader, and the legend. 

The layered white hoodie paired with the bleached Rocco was a win for me, taking on the fall in Florida I went with a light look to keep the heat at bay. If you're in a cooler climate area I would suggest darker pieces to endure the prelude of winter in style. 

Check out how I dressed this look up!

How To Step In To The Saint Pablo Tour

Like true Kanye fashion, walking into the Kanye West concert you must exude a cocky swagger accompanied by a god-like aura. 

Kanye's has always been a wearer of distressed denim, dyed garments, and fly footwear. Paying homage to his style I was inspired by his outfit in Schoolboy Q's "That Part" video. As an avid Kanye concert goer I have been to all of his tours except Watch The Throne.  For rookie attendees it was an experience that had them in awe, for the veterans like myself, it was a reminder of how passionate he is for aesthetics and how consistent he has been throughout the years with innovation. 

Pick a pair of Adidas Yeezy's, Tubulars, or Boosts, a pair of joggers/distressed denim, a tee with texture and character and a badass jacket to complete the look. Queue the uber pregame playlist and ride to the concert on an ultra light beam ready to make waves walking in. 

My denim jacket was custom made by myself -- for your very own custom shirt/jacket you can contact me via email or DM for pricing.

Cognac & Crafts: An Experience of Excellence with Rémy Martin

As a result of being a true #CraftPerfecter I received a grand opportunity to explore the true artistry of tastemaking with one of my favorite brand of spirits - Rémy Martin. The carefully crafted cognac was created from centuries of perfecting the process. The nature of the French cognac brand itself is based on exceptional quality and not one time during my experience was it compromised.  

Day 1

My trip started with world-class chauffeuring service to my destination. Checking in at the Royalton the first day, I was greeted with royal services. The first evening began with an exclusive tasting of Rémy Martin’s four cognacs from their collection: Eau-de-vie De Vin (crisp, lively, and sophisticated), VSOP (silky, elegant, and layered), 1738 Accord Royal (rich, aromatic, and creamy) and XO (dark, rich, and refined).  A warm entry to what the week would have in store.

Day 2

Gabriel Kreuther offered an evening of fine dining and exceptional spirits – a 3 course dinner that consisted of opulent hor d'oeuvres and classic cocktails that complimented every dish. The Royal Sazerac cocktail was a favorite of mine due to its unique texture and citrusy accent. The night was filled with me expanding my taste palette and being exposed to meals and appetizers that created their own world of timeless flavor. Finishing dessert with a glass of Louis XIII topped the night off in splendid fashion. 

Day 3

As the week came to an end, Rémy Martin sent me to the Mulberry Project to learn how to create crafty cocktails, learn the recipes, as well as create my own. The toasts’ to success were endless as I closed out a luxurious experience celebrating the pursuit of my craft. 

Interestingly enough, Rémy Martin created an exquisite experience that was synonymous with the Mister DeLaMont brand's vision -- having fulfillment through true experiences and encouraging success through every avenue of skill one possesses.
