Groom Style // Trends & Tips

Racer Shades by Retrosuperfuture

Retro sunglasses by RetroSuperfuture

Honestly, these Racer ‘Black&Briar‘ shades from Italian designers, Retrosuperfuture, could be the sweetest I’ve seen all year. The detail of the shape is super sexy and the wood grain effect takes it back, way back in time – just adding to the sexiness, really. From €140.00, they are available online at the Retrosuperfutre Store.

Grooming with Natio

Natio For Men Skin Care

I’ve been enjoying the fresh scent and positive skincare results of Natio For Men products for about a year now – they are all really effective, natural products. My lady even uses my face wash because it’s such a crisp “manly smell”, she says. Nice. So above left is my fave (of course), the ‘Daily Face Wash‘ priced from 11.95 AUD. It’s anti-blemish but doesn’t dry my face at all. Then on the right is the totally prefect ‘Groom’ pack, which consists of the Daily Face Wash (150g), Smooth Shave Gel (150g) and Firming Face Moisturiser (100g). Packaged in a handy toiletry bag, the set is priced from $24.95 AUD (on sale at quality department stores for a limited time).

Groom Style: The Gucci Way

Gucci’s got you covered from the alter to the honeymoon. Loving these styles from the 2012 collection – from the top: lace-up patent leather shoe with embossed Gucci script logo and perforations, hightop sneaker with interlocking G Detail and the green and orange thong with GG pattern embossed top sole and diamante pattern embossed bottom sole. Sorted! Images from Gucci.
