It’s sometimes cool to be geek and hip to be square with the latest Oliver Peoples 2017 collection of sunglasses made privately for Berluti and which – by and large – comes more often than not in the ominously morose color of tobacco brown so as if to say ‘I really don’t care what you think what I look like’ especially when the framework does not only come in aviator cool or Persol hip, but also in that one gaudy square shape that will immediately turn any halfway good-looking man into a fumbling geek or an insecure nerd like superman transformed into the bumbling journalist Clark Kent of the Daily Bugle. But that is called style my friend!

Italian style, for these little masterpieces are all handcrafted in Italy and are well worth seeking out if you like to go Sotto Voce, and not screaming in agony for attention like K – Pop Instagram wannabe starlets in Gentle Monster to the latest greatest runway show trying to be seen, but rather to observe what is going in this grand world of fashion of ours. Well of course you are going to need some matte or semi-matte tobacco looking sunglasses because polaroid is just that necessary at the moment while you are sitting still in reflection and not aiming to be speeding in your car or taxi to the next ‘event’. Your Italian style, of course, speak for itself, and this is where Oliver Peoples 2017 for Berluti comes in real handy.

Thank god not too many lens or frame colors to choose from, but keeping it simple in tobacco, grey, indigo, some gold, and of course nero these vintage shades are all that you really need if you are NOT looking for attention because you know that class always comes with rather low key traditional style. No questions asked. No need to flaunt it. Because it is Hip to be Square, and Cool to be Geek. With Oliver Peoples 2017 sunglasses for Berluti.

What is a man’s ultimate accessory?  This would be debatable under the time, place and circumstances no doubt, but many people would say, simply – a car. A car today is what a horse used to be – as without it a real man may not be considered as such by some. And of all cars we know it may be that only Lamborghini as a brand ranks above Ferrari in status, power, and reach.

And because with special accessories always comes the responsibility of nice clothes and good style, if not good taste, we should not fail to mention that Lamborghini has released a product line of high-end clothing recently of which here you will find a short review.

The Collezione Lamborghini was first launched and presented at the Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence earlier this month, and well, it’s fantastic.

The Collezione Automobili Lamborghini will have three different clothing lines:

  • Classic (made in collaboration with d’Avenza)
Lamborghini 1

Classic & sartorial.

  • Casual (running shoes in collaboration with Mizuno from Japan)
Casual & Sporty.

Casual & Sporty.

  • Squadra Corse (this is the technical wear part of the collections, ‘squadra’ of course referring to the racing team)
Technical racing wear.

Technical racing wear.

In addition there will be a fragrance line (L1, L2, L3, L4) as well as a luxury carbon fiber luggage collection available, both also made and produced in collaboration with other exclusive and well-known brands.

Here is where you can go in person to find Lamborghini clothes and accessories:

  • Sant’Agata Bolognese  (Lamborghini Boutiques)
  • Dubai (Dubai Mall; Galeries Lafayette; House of Fraser)
  • Taipei (Bellavita Shopping Mall)
  • Bangkok (Siam Paragon, The Emporium)
  • Pattaya City (Central Festival Pattaya)
  • Abu Dhabi (House of Fraser)

It was the Pitti Uomo 89, and we’d traveled a ways to get there. As BDMOTP covers cities all over the world, you can probably imagine that most of our team members are avid travelers, especially our CEO Alton Barber, who flew into Florence from Washington DC (after visiting London and in route to Milan, of course). And avid travelers need solid, quality luggage that can keep up with them.

Crash Baggage is a stylish solution for all your baggage woes. The brand got its start when designer Francesco Pavia noticed how often his luggage was ruined at the airport and decided it was time to create something original and and different–baggage that was already damaged! Using Crash Baggage, no one will notice any new dents and scratches as the bags themselves are created with their own personal and artistic pre-formed damages.


The unique and ‘damaged’ luggage comes in various sizes, so you can select the right one to fit your adventure. Coming soon–a new ‘bump’ collection that will feature backpacks, totes and weekenders. Best of all? This eco-friendly luggage line is made with sustainable plastic. Handle your Crash Baggage without care, as new dents are warmly welcomed!
