I was up early to be at the American embassy to pick up another 3 years of being allowed to work in America (Fuck yeah!). I then spent the day editing my short film #TheRedPillow before heading to the Kit & Ace store launch party in Shoreditch.
I managed all of this quite easily in the same outfit, although it was a bit weird leaving the house without getting changed for the occasion. It sort of felt like I'd forgotten something... mildly irritating for a second but definitely no reason to abandon the mission.
Day one - a success!
On the surface a bit more of a challenge and as I got up to walk my dog and train in the park I realised that I forgot a simple loophole that I should have allowed myself.
Gym Kit.. a minor failure but not one that goes against the philosophy I am trying to promote (I would hardly expect people to train in the same clothes they spend the rest of the day wearing).
The evening came and began with the screening of the FrostFrench short film 'Will Nature Make a Man of Me Yet?' at the Bulgari Hotel. I smartened up the look with a Burberry Mac but the basic outfit did the trick.
The film was great as well by the way- seriously jealous and inspired by the DOP and colour grading in particular.. good work!
Then on to one of the more 'out-there' shows of the week.. The On-Off show, always fun and always inspiring. Not before stopping in a Covent Garden pub to watch England kick off the Rugby World Cup.
Next was the Hunger magazine party in a sweaty west end nightspot. After a few hours of fun I realized that I might need to throw in a wash cycle in the morning.
..and finally to see the fam for Ashley Roberts birthday drinks. Kim is away working this weekend so I was representing the Rogers household and therefore was forced to get fully involved. A few drink-spills later and the T-Shirt is definitely heading for the wash in the morning!
Up with a sore head - and despite hating having to operate and listen to the washing machine for the first hour of the day, my look will be ready for dinner with my agent and the Versace event tonight.
Thinking of dressing the look up a bit tonight with a tux jacket.
So far - so easy!
