Today, I would like to introduce you properly to one of London's nicest menswear bloggers. You have seen him on this blog before as he is a big fan of MCM: his name is Matthew Zorpas and he blogs over at The Gentleman Blogger. If you like tailoring with a modern, playful twist, Matthew is most definitely your man!
Please introduce yourself
My name is Matthew Zorpas, I was born in Cyprus and I have been living in London for the past 8 years. My background is in Public Relations and I'm now a lecturer at Istituto Marangoni and Winchester School of Arts, as well as the founder of The Gentleman Blogger - a platform dedicated to mens lifestyle.
Describe your personal style
My style has evolved over the last five years. I think getting older the more you discover your own distinctive style. Somehow the way you dress is becoming a signature without any planning or thinking in advance. Today, you will find me in a double-breasted navy suit, buttoned-up white shirt and a tie in every occasion. Classic, dapper.. yet functional with a twist.
Style inspiration (for the shoot & general)
My inspiration is drawn through traveling around the world. I get inspired by observing different landscapes, locals, ethic dancers and going to art galleries and museums. My style is a result of things I see or situations that occur around me. My look for the shoot has this sharpness and mobility yet dynamic stasis in a fast moving world.
The Stark-Visetos pouch is my favourite item from Spring / Summer'14 collection.This bold statement piece is the ultimate pouch to take your outfit to the next level.
Favourite moment of the blogger makeover
Running away with MCMs black alligator briefcase!
What is your favourite combination of MCM products? What does it reveal about your personality/style?
I always like combining a briefcase and an MCM folder or pouch. Preppy look with a wink.
Which MCM product(s) best describes your personality?
Being a blogger I frequently get to travel around the world and I'm always in need of a good weekend bag for trips that are short or aren't suitable for a rolling suitcase. Munich Lion weekend bag is the perfect way to add sophistication to my weekend jaunts. It has this carefree aesthetic, inspiring lightened, mobility yet stylish and masculine.
Which stuffed MCM animal would you bring to bed?
I will probably bring the dog to bed. They have an inherent sense of loyalty, so they might stay with me forever.
