Myself and the better half were recently invited to stay at the Melita Hotel in Victoria. The Melita is an intimate yet chic hotel in the heart of Victoria, London and is renowned for it’s hospitality with bloggers.

This place is the perfect stay for anyone wanting to grab great pictures, venture into central London or simply just get some work done. There are even some great coffee shops near by especially The Roasting which does amazing hot chocolates. In the pictures above I’m wearing a grey coat by COS, Zara destroyed denim jeans and Nike tech fleece Presto’s.

#FilthyFellas Takeover JD Sports For Nike Football X



 For those of you who don’t know, I am part of a online football show called #FilthyFellas. Over the last year we have built a strong niche following because of our urban influenced banter when talking about the beautiful game. I also present for JD Football so it made sense that the two come together for the launch of the Nike Magista X boot.

Myself, Poet and Vujanic were asked to do a live version of #FilthyFellas in the flagship JD store on Oxford Street for Nike Football X. Grime veteran Logan Sama not only hosted the event but also span some tunes for the crowd who attended.

My Air Max 90 Nike iD Creation

Anyone who knows me truly knows that sneakers are my thing. In particular I have an obsession with Nike’s and Air Max 90’s have been a silhouette I have loved since primary school. In my life time I reckon I have owned over 8 different colour ways (Mummy isn’t rich, I just grafted for them).

Although I am a footwear fanatic, I had never made my own custom pair of Nike iD’s despite the option being available since it’s inception in 1999. One of my favourite pairs of sneakers in recent years are the Air Max 90 hyperfuse Independence Day’s. I have them in red but wanted my own custom pair so I decided to make an all grey pair (above) entitled the “Wolf Grey Snowflakes”. I decided to add the volt colour on the logo and my name on the heels with a silver tick and white specks on the sole.

Festival ‘Fits

Hockey Jersey: Tampa Bay Lightning | Shorts: Levis | Sneakers: Nike Flyknit | Watch: Marc Jacobs

I’ve been experimenting with looks for the summer especially since the festival season has arrived and the look I’ve thrown together is a mix match. Hockey Jersey’s with shredded shorts and running shoes is a great festival look.

Hockey Jersey’s will always make a statement and the large numerical designs are in fashion at the moment so an authentic jersey will take you to that upper echelon. Cutting a pair of old jeans will create the shredded look which is a rough touch to the festival ‘fit.

I’ve got a new series coming with Flavour Mag called “Festivals With Flavour“where I reek havoc on your favourite UK music fest’s so be on the look out for that.

Mustard Tee’s and World Cup Blues

T-shirt: Cos | Shorts: H&M | Sneakers: Nike Flyknit

With the FIFA World Cup taking place in Brazil this year, the beautiful game has given me mixed emotions. The vibe, culture and overall aesthetics of the Brazilian themed football coverage is perfect. From ITV’s catchy theme song to Gary Lineker’s expert punditry, while the view of Copacabana beach is caught in the distance, this World Cup has so far delivered. So much so, that even I want to wear bright colours to feel involved.

However I can’t seem to shake the disappoint of England’s performance this year. We never really had high expectations because lets face it, we aren’t producing the most talented footballers at the moment but getting out of the group stage has to be the bare minimum. Rooney being played on the left, Gerrard constantly sulking and Defoe being left in Canada to watch via a TV are just some of the things wrong. I could type forever about the faults but instead I’m going to leave it by saying that the World Cup is sponsored by many beverages; Coca-Cola, Budweiser etc. but none of them serve up the cocktail of emotions that the tournament itself delivers.

Wear bright clothes, embrace the summer and watch happily with your loved ones.

Nike Air Tech Challenge II SP | Wimbledon


Nike’s consistency for new innovations and retro re-releases this last year has been second to none. Not only are they making sure we have a constant selection, the quality threshold is sky high and they re-confirm this with the release of the Wimbledon themed Air Tech Challenge II’s.

Featuring the tournament’s deep green hue contrasted against the crispness of the white so often worn by the game’s players, the shoe also sports a gold insole and branded medallion on the laces. These beauties will release tomorrow.

Street Style: Craig Mitch By David Nyanzi


David Nyanzi is a talented street photographer based in London who shoots for the likes of ASOS and many others. I was approached by him while shopping with Poet the other day outside Selfridges and he took a couple casual snaps.

The above was my favourite as it managed to catch the essence of London and my style in 1 whole shot. Be on the look out for David and his magical camera on a street near you!

Pigalle x Nike | Capsule Collection


Cult street wear brand Pigalle are full of power moves recently. Not only did they open up a section in London’s Selfridges this year, they have now made a capsule collection with sportswear giants Nike that will be released in 2 weeks.

They have decided to make a basketball collection consisting of jersey’s, shorts, basketball’s and Air Force 1’s. I’ve become a fan of Pigalle’s bold/striking designs however choosing AF1’s as their sneaker of choice wasn’t a good move in my opinion.
