The Classic Guy collaboration with HM for Tokyo Fashion Week 5I could've been the guy in the fur coat with a crazy hat and a borderline inappropriate outfit for Fashion Week in Tokyo, but, that's not who I am. I've said this before and I believe it's true: you have to be yourself for these kind of events, maybe exaggerate a bit, but still be yourself. It's not a costume party, it's a work thing (that happens to have lots of street style photographers), so you have to look your best and, trust me, your best self looks really cool.

I went for a "classic guy" sort of look for that day of runways and presentations. I've been into polo shirts a lot lately, I used to dislike them because I thought they looked too posh but when I discovered slim fit t-shirts everything changed. That's the thing about me, one day I can look really preppy and put-together in a polo shirt and white denim jacket and the next I can wear a septum ring and a leather jacket. I'm still me, but my personality has lots of different layers. 

The setting for this outfit is right in the center of one of my favourite places in Tokyo: Harajuku. This district is filled with awesome little shops, pancake restaurants, cafés and thrift stores. The moment I saw this store, I fell in love with it. It very much went with my outfit and personality for that day: classic lines, a simple yet crisp design, it was perfect. I said that this month would be about ruling the world and, here's some advice, that means being able to adapt and sell all sides of you, all our different layers. When you manage to do that, you're one step closer to win at life.

// Pude haber sido ese chavito en el abrigo de pelo, con un sombrero loco y atuendos casi ofensivos durante Fashion Week en Tokyo, pero, ese no so you. He dicho esto antes y creo que es la verdad: tienes que ser tú mismo en este tipo de eventos, quizá exagerar un poquito, pero ser tú mismo al final del día. No es una fiesta de disfraces, es trabajo (que coincidentemente tiene muchos fotógrafos de street style), así que debes poner tu mejor cara y, créanme, esa cara luce muy bien.

Elegí un look más clásico para ese día de pasarelas y presentaciones. Últimamente me gustan mucho las playeras polo, solían no gustarme porque creía que se veían muy snob pero cuando descubrí las que son slim fit todo cambió. Esa es la cosa conmigo, un día puedo verme muy nice & preppy en una polo y chamarra de mezclilla blanca y el siguiente puedo usar un arete de septum y chamarra de piel. Sigo siendo yo, pero mi personalidad tiene muchas capas diferentes.

El lugar para estas fotos es justo en el centro de uno de mis lugares favoritos en Tokyo: Harajuku. Este distrito está lleno de pequeñas tiendas increíbles, restaurantes de hot cakes, cafés y tiendas de segunda mano. En el momento que vi esta tienda, me enamoré de ella. Quedaba perfectamente con mi atuendo y personalidad del día: líneas clásicas, un diseño sencillo pero en el punto justo. Dije que este mes se trataría de conquistar el mundo y, aquí hay algo de sabiduría, eso significa ser capaz de adaptarte y vender todos tus diferentes lados, todas tus capas. Cuando logras hacer eso, estás un paso más cerca de ganar en la vida.
