ASICS GEL-SAGA TRAINERS in WHITE/SAMBA. Blog by Skirmantas Petraitis.

Urban Street Style, Redefined.

My weekends are pretty much as hectic as weekdays. *sigh* From content planning to editing, I spend most of my days out and about. No rest for the wicked? Hell yeah! Long gone the days when binge watching Netflix in bed all day was appropriate. So, finding a comfortable pair of trainers can make those long working days a little bit more lightweight.

Recently, I’ve discovered the new GEL-SAGA unisex trainer collection from ASICS Tiger. First released in 1991, ASICS Tiger GEL-SAGA footwear has been shaking the urban street style industry with its cutting-edge designs and exceptional all-day comfort. Whilst maintaining the traditional tongue and collar design, this new generation model has evolved to satisfy urban street style individuals who aim for perfection. As someone who’s getting more and more obsessed with unisex fashion trends, these kicks are a great addition to my ever-growing gender neutral wardrobe.

I’m fascinated by ASICS Tiger because they always put emphasis on people who lead a busy lifestyle. No to mention those who sport a street-savvy look and expect to feel like they’re walking on air. *ermmm, me*

On this day, I’ve paired my ASICS trainers with a tracksuit. The contract tape over it really accentuates the red detail of my sneakers. I wasn’t expecting to look this good wearing a tracksuit but I definitely see myself wearing this on most Sundays. Can we call this a Sunday Funday realness? *yasss gawd*

What do you think about the new ASICS Tiger GEL-SAGA trainers? Would you wear this look? Let me know in the comments section below!

Changing of the Seasons.

I can’t believe the summer is officially over! *shook* Where did it go?! It feels like it’s been just a few days since I was basking in the sun, whilst loop listening to the “Poolside Disco” playlist on Spotify. *writes an emotional farewell letter to Summer 2018*.

So, it’s time to put those gladiator sandals, floral shirts and denim shorts away for another year and welcome my favourite seasonal thing in the whole world – LEYERS! *refrains from referencing PSL just yet*. After weeks of record high temperatures and insane electricity bills coming from using a fan at night, I’m so ready to sport some killer items this autumn.

As someone who updates his seasonal wardrobe way in advance, I found some epic jackets on Members Only e-commerce store. A brand that retains his cult status since the 80s, Members Only offers a wide range of men’s jackets that will surely stand the test of time. Therefore, scroll down to see my selection!

The Sharp Varsity Jacket.

I’ve always been a sucker for vintage varsity jackets. So, I picked MO varsity jacket in camel for those epic back-to-school moments. Their sharp Varsity Jacket has got me covered when it comes to style and practicality. The jacket is crafted from a soft wool-blend knit with faux-leather sleeves. It also features a ribbed baseball collar, long sleeves with letter patches and signature brand hit at welt chest pocket. Therefore, it looks cool and feels super cosy when you just want to enjoy a glass of scotch whiskey on a rooftop.

Rebel Heart

Against the Grain…

Everyone who knows me knows that I like to march to the beat of my own dram. Well… Actually… DANCE to the beat of my own drum! *prances his way through life* Ever since I was a child, I was always doing things differently and expressing myself unlike everyone else. I always felt like I didn’t fit the mould and was often causing trouble than just ‘going with the flow’. Finding my place in Lithuania was almost impossible because if you’re not ‘normal’, then you don’t belong here.

Luckily, after graduating from school, I had the opportunity to move abroad and discover my true potential. The first few years were quite bumpy but after a while, I shaped my personality and became the person that I am today.

Expressive Combination.

A couple of weeks ago, I visited Thomas Sabo flagship store in Mayfair to pick up two men’s bracelets that perfectly match my personality and compliment my current style. I’ve been very impressed with their designs and an extensive selection of bracelet.

For those of you who are not familiar with Thomas Sabo, this men’s jewellery brand is known for their sterling silver men’s bracelets and bangles, which are the perfect must-have accessories to complete both smart and casual outfits.

So, without further ado, here are my top two picks:

MAORI SKULL: This bracelet is a symbol of power and strength. Skull Bead is decorated with patterns inspired by the legendary Maori tattoos. The handcrafted details of the centre bead create an artistic surface structure. It gives the iconic bracelet made of matt, oval beads its special feature. I’ve been wearing this one almost every day since I got it because I feel like it guards me against trouble. *rebels without a cause* Also, I’m a huge fan or large accessories because they make me feel so empowered. So, it’s a must-have accessory for those who look to wear darker tones and bold textures. Think leather jackets, heavy boots and ripped jeans! *already plans his style for autumn*

LITTLE SECRET ANCHOR: This hand-knotted, colourful textile bracelet is ideal for versatile combinable styles. I often wear it with my matt black watch or a chunkier bracelet. *checks out the pictures* Just like the Maori bracelet, it’s also a symbol of power and strength. All thanks to the anchor pendant. Therefore, this little anchor bracelet is perfect for those who are looking for a lightweight hand accessory.

Street Edition

Label 5 Blended Scotch Whisky pop-up event at Boxpark Shoreditch with Graffiti Kings. Blog by Skirmantas Petraitis.

Whisky and ice and everything nice!

My interest in whisky really evolved after I’ve graduated from university. Long gone are the days when I was living for a glass of Jack and moved onto a more sophisticated range of blended scotch whiskies. *self-proclaimed whisky expert over here* For some young man, whisky is a way to adulthood. It’s an experience that is different each time you enjoy a rich taste of it. *pours himself another glass*

I was so thrilled when Label 5 invited me to their pop-up event at Boxpark Shoreditch. I had the opportunity to taste their blended scotch whisky, as well as trying my hand at graffiti art under the guidance of Grafitti Kings. *instantly becomes a fan* Grafitti Kings once ran a workshop for the cast of Suicide Squad. Therefore, I was writing down all the questions I was about to ask them in preparation for my one-man Harlequeen show. ANYWAYS, back to street art… *scrolls down*

One of the highlights from this pop-up event was my hands-on experience at a one-to-one session with the world-leading street art collective Grafitti Kings. As someone who has never sprayed paint on a wall, this was a rather amusing activity!*couldn’t contain his excitement*

The artists taught me tips and tricks on how to get the precision right. Also, I was able to give my own take on street art. *yasss*

In terms of overall experience, I give the Label 5 pop-up event a thumbs up! *yay* The cocktails were mouthwatering, whilst graffiti workshop kept me entertained until the very last minute. Therefore, I’m so looking forward to seeing what these guys are going to do next!

Key moments…

July is one of the most significant months of my existence. From graduating high school, college and university to starting my life in Norfolk and London, July has always been that time of the year when life-changing moments unfold.

I find it hard to believe the fact that I’ve already spent a third of my life living in the United Kingdom. *yikes* It feels like it was yesterday when this pure innocent soul was packing his bags and taking his one-way flight to a better (more promising) future… AND guess what, I’m still here living the life I’ve always dreamed of. It all seems so surreal when I’m thinking about it now! *damn*

This month, I’m celebrating another key moment in my life. It was my first time being on a cruise and first time visiting 5 cities ( and3 countries) in 7 days. *globe trotter alert* Also, it was my first time visiting Italy. *I can’t believe it myself* Therefore, I’m dying to see more of the land of pizza. Who wants to join me?! *travel buddy application is now open*

Category is… Summer Daze!

Several weeks ago, I was so stoked to partner with Jacamo because they’re all about living in the moment, in all shapes and sizes. *hashtag live YOUR moment* So, if you haven’t popped onto their awesome website yet – you’re missing out big time. They’ve just added so many new pieces to their store, so you should definitely check these guys out!

Today, I’m wearing Dr Marten’s 8 Eye Lace Up Boots, paired with J By Jasper’s revere collar shirt and Jacamo’s own stone linen trousers. This overall look is serving you some chilled vibes, perfect for a Sunday stroll in town or catching up with friends for brunch. You’ll most definitely see me sporting these lace-up boots everywhere! *sorry not sorry*

Thanks to Jacamo for sponsoring this blog post. However, all views expressed here are my own and do not reflect those of the sponsor.
