Red is such a tricky colour for men to pull off but I am so glad I tried it. Shot in one of my secret hiding places. Where I escape from the chaos of the city, even though this quietly hidden spot is right in the heart of the city. ๐Ÿ“ธ

So I took this photo of St Paul's Cathedral earlier this week. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿฐ

Facebook wanted to remind me that this was me exactly two years ago. I look so... butch in this photo. ๐Ÿ˜‚ This is also back in the days when I used to wear skinny jeans every day. Photo by the Cambridge Satchel Company.

Just tried this red jacket a few minutes ago at Coach. What do you think? Is red my colour? Let me know. Photo taken by a lovely lady who works there. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

I proudly wore a bright red blazer to show my respect, gratitude and admiration for all the women out there today, on International Women's Day. You make the world worth living in through your compassion, kindness and love. There are many women who have always had my back and always support me through-out my life - my mum, aunts, friends and ex-girlfriends. I will always be extremely grateful and have your backs. ๐Ÿ‘

I have not taken an outfit photo in a while, so here is a photo from a few days ago, with the lovely Libby Thompson, who is one of the curators for Kensington Palace's new exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story. It was so good to see her and we had a wonderful chat about our favourite gowns worn by Princess Diana. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‘‘

A video of me at the Burberry Prorsum show during London Fashion Week, back in the day when Burberry used to do big, big shows! I am the one with the purple bow tie and grey trench Burberry coat, getting my photo taken by the celebrity photographer. This was before I had a beard and used to wear my hair down. I looked SO different three years ago! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I feel very lucky to have been invited to the Burberry shows back when the venue was SO huge and incredibly magical thanks to Darja Noren (Burberry's chief PR lady) . Every moment felt like you were inside some kind of Utopia. The Burberry show was the greatest show on the planet - full of real A-lister celebrities from all around the world. Just about everywhere you would look, all the guests would be immaculately dressed - many in Burberry. Another wonderful thing about the Burberry show was that you were asked to arrive an hour before the show started, giving you plenty of time to relax, explore the venue and mingle with everyone. Drinks were served by beautifully dressed waiters, who were really models. One of my life long dream came true that afternoon too as I met Carine Roitfeld. She was the nicest person ever to me - we both had a grey coat on and laughed about it. I rarely ever feel starstruck but was definitely in awe of her. She said I looked amazing and we had our photo taken together. I will never forget it! BIG BIG thanks to a lovely woman (Jessica) I met there for making this video of me and the show!

Throwback to the time Louise Thompson asked me to join her to watch a movie, last October. She is so incredibly lovely and kept saying she is obsessed with my style. ๐Ÿ˜ By the way, I have been going through my photos from back then and noticed I looked older and more grown up. I look younger now. So weird!

Last Wednesday I was invited by the press officers for Kensington Palace to view its new exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story, two days before it opened to the public. It was such a special and surreal experience for me as a little boy I used to look up to her. To get up this close and personal, to stand next to the clothes she breathe and walked in was just magical. She was an extraordinary human being. What's makes it all even more special is that this exhibition is inside a place where she lived - her home Kensington Palace. The exhibition is now open to the public and is well worth seeing. ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Amongst the thousands of photos I took backstage at London Fashion Week, this is one of my favourites. I love all the details on the pleated neck piece, and the dust in the air as the fan blew to keep the models and backstage team cool from the heat of the lights. Shot at XIAO LI inside the BFC building.

Photo from when I took a break backstage at London Fashion Week while the models were out performing. Sat on a model's make-up chair drinking @evianwater.

After my visit to Kensington Palace yesterday, I made a mad dash to Savile Row to pick up a made to measure shirt I had custom made for myself. Here is Max who is the store director and has been absolutely brilliant in helping me create my perfect shirt. He is Italian so we spent quite a bit of time talking about all things Italy! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น
