Style in the City Week 3 - Satisfashion Blog

17 April 2014

The wind was a force to be reckoned with this week and kept many stylish residents at home or buried underneath wind and waterproof rainmacs -  needless to say we still managed to find some great styles out their.

Check out the 2 who had the ultimate style factor from this week and recreate their style at home.

Adam Sheikh – 30 – DJ and Music Producer/ Manager at Xile – The Shore – Leith

Adam Week3

What word best sums up Edinburgh style for you?

“Open- Open to interpretation. There are a lot of unique styles going on in Edinburgh, generally I think its pretty open and anything kinda goes being a capital city and all. “

What is your favourite hidden gem shop in Edinburgh?

“Xile clothing on Fredrick street  - we cater for a lot of street style with brands from London, Paris, Milan”

What Item have you got your eye on for Spring Summer?

“Nice White pair of Nike Roshe”

What’s your one item that should be in everybody’s wardrobe?

“A pair of Nike Roche – they are comfortable and stylish.”

 


Who is your fashion icon?

“I don’t have a particular person but GStar, other than what most people in Scotland know it for being over branded hideous t shirts, they are actually very forward thinking designers. They have a massive collaboration coming out with Pharrell Williams , and will be recycling ocean waste and putting it into clothes. They are a very forward thinking brand.”

Where is your outfit from today?

“Replay Jeans, Trainers from Size and Shirt from Xile “

Male Montage Wk3

Like Adams recreated look don’t be scared to clash colours that don’t exactly match, I think experimenting with random combinations is a great way to build your own unique style.

Shirt – £99 – Xile Fredrick Street
Chains  - £12 – Topman Princes Street
Jeans – Diesel - £140 – Xile Fredrick Street
Trainers – Nike - £80 - Schuh

Lynette’s look is really cool she is wearing a dress with a jumper over the top.
