Hey guys! Starting today, I will be adding a new category to my blog which is ‘travel’. I wish I would have done this sooner because it would have been nice to look at all the things that I have done when I was travelling to a different country. When I was a little, I used to travel a lot with my family – we’ve travelled to Japan, South Africa, Thailand, Australia, China, just to name a few. Even though it was nice and fun to travel all these places, I wish I was a little bit older when I visited these places because I think I would have enjoyed and appreciated the experiences even more. Don’t get me wrong I feel blessed and fortunate enough to have been able to travelled to these amazing places – I definitely would like to make more time and travel and perhaps go back to a few of the countries that I have visited and experience what they have to offer as an adult and more importantly to document it properly, but for now I want to share with you guys my recent trip to New York City.
Spring and summer is all about effortless casual look and usually, my go-to piece is the classic white shirt that we have all come to love and wore at least a few times in our lives. Depending on your preference I prefer my white shirt with long sleeves because it exudes sophistication and class (at least for me) not to mention with long sleeve you can dress it up or down by either rolling the sleeves up or by tucking the shirt in. In the summer time the obvious choice for me is to roll up the sleeves and accessorize it with either gold watch or a few bracelets. What I like most about wearing a white shirt is that you can pair it with pretty much any bottoms – be it jeans, trousers or shorts.
I actually wore this outfit when I was in NYC two weeks ago, as you can see I wore this Perry Ellis shirt with a darker tone trousers from Topman to kind of give it a nice contrast balance. To compliment the rest of this look, I wore my white Adidas Originals Superstar 2 and accessorized it with Caravelle gold watch and a PS11 bag by Proenza Schouler.

New York City is definitely one of those cities that you just fall in love with and just want to keep coming back to. Last week, I went to NYC for a couple of meetings and also to enjoy a super short break before summer school starts, which is in two weeks. This year, my summer will be very hectic as I’m enrolled in four courses and they’re all three months long. Hopefully, I will be able to find enough time to go to NYC in July for Men’s Fashion Week.
Looking at my previous posts I have noticed that my street style has gone MIA since winter and I thought to myself that it was time to bring it back. I’m not going to lie, I kinda had already planned a street style look when I was packing for the trip. The first day I arrived in NYC, I went to Macy’s right away and did a little shopping and I purchased two things – this amazing Calvin Klein sweater and a white Perry Ellis long sleeve shirt. To make this look much more cooler, I chose to shoot it in SoHo. I’ve always wanted to do a shoot there but never really had the chance to do it due to time constraints. To complete this look, I wore my white Adidas Superstar 2 sneakers. To check out more of my adventure in NYC use #vincentkogoestonewyork and be sure to follow me @vincentko. Cheers!

Premium menswear label CURATED debuted its first collection just recently which also happened to be the brand’s introduction to the industry. CURATED offers great stylish clothes without sacrificing quality and only premium materials are used to create this collection – such as their selvedge denim and chino is sourced from the finest mills in Japan while their special delve linen is sourced from Italy. Not only do the brand tries to maintain the standard in their clothing, but they are also aware of their environment and sustainability is part of their statement. For example, recycled water and solar energy are used when making the clothes; to step even further, the brand also makes sure to use the mud from the wash to create bricks for housing charities.
“We are helping to set the standard for wardrobing with a conscious nod toward making the planet a safe and stylish place for future generations. Quality with sustainability is no longer the compromise it once was.” CEO Gary Sims adds.
I actually had the pleasure to check out their SS15 and AW15 collection when I was in NYC last week. The clothes looked great and felt great. Looking from up-close, one can tell that a lot of effort and work went into making the clothes. The SS15 collection features a more contemporary modern look with a subtle vintage flair. Shop the new collection HERE.
