Valencia photo diary I: a chronicle of the Spanish travel. 

It has been weeks since I got back to Vancouver from Spain and I am still craving the scent and allure of the Spanish region. From the food to the people, Valencia is a quint city full of character to be explored and discovered. The city has its own quality that separates itself from any European destination. There is almost a hybrid of a coastal lifestyle mixed in together with an urban cultural traditions that results in a relax and vibrant environment. 

The weather was phenomenally warm therefore choosing an outfit to go out and about was quite challenging. Although I am a avid addict when it comes to monochromatic ensembles, I couldn’t help to showcase my floral shirt from Bench that I got from Philippines last time. It’s blooming print is different than any other botanical prints in the market. I finished off both my Valencian outfit with my classic white Chuck Taylor converse - I live in this pair of shoes this season. 

Stay tuned for more blog entries about my Spanish escapade.

Lately, I have been cheating on fashion for airplane tickets. It’s better than a lamb skin leather jacket or a new kicks from Rick Owens. 

Once you get out of the place where you feel most comfortable in, you would be addicted to that experience of the unknown. The indescribable feeling of trying to be in a place full of people with the same addiction - travelling and exploring the world - is a constant craving that needs to be fixed. 

It’s that instant invisible feeling that I love the most - not caring about anything except for time and space. Nothing logical matters and your brain is heavily influenced by irrational thoughts.

I think that is why we try to escape.

There are three things men desire when a conversation about wardrobe begins: a quality tailored suit, a pair of Italian leather footwear and a statement timepiece. 

The recent Victorinox line of timepieces dubbed as the Alliance, goes beyond the classic and clean line aesthetic of Swiss watchmaking. The details, from the Arabic numerals to the boastful emblem of the Swiss cross, becomes an iconic visual representation of opulence, quality and style.

From the dark gray or eggshell dial options, to the delicately brushed sunray finish to highlight the tones finishing with the polished and satined steel or an ecologically tanned black leather strap, the Alliance is an exquisite piece in a men’s wardrobe. 

The sleek and classic aesthetic of traditional watches contrast with the modern touches of technological advancement makes the Alliance the mechanical watch of stylish elegance.

If I get a chance to run away from the noise of today, I would pack my map and take you with me. I want to wake up on a train or on the plane with the morning light beaming on your face beside me. 

Thoughts about my standards and taste visits my head throughout the day. While walking in the city observing society and how people’s minds work, I think to myself why my priorities differ from an average twenty year old. 

When a college student dash out two grand to buy this season’s handbag, I see myself photographing the alleyways of Fez in Morocco and smelling the different spices that linger the region.
