Love Matthias’ look? Visit his Shopcade and follow him to find out more about his style!

When it comes to interviewing stylish Parisian guys, we say YES without any hesitation! Matthias Cornilleau runs Stylnoxe, an uber cool blog about men’s fashion and travelling. We grilled him on how men shop these days and why he hates running shoes with a passion!

Hi Matthias! We love your blog. What’s the concept behind it? And the blog’s name is quite unusual, how did you come up with it?

My blog’s name is a mix of the word “style” and the name of a medicine. In fact, I think fashion is like a medicine – when you feel comfortable and happy in your clothes, you feel comfortable and happy in your skin. That’s why I wear different types of clothes: casual, classic, grunge – every day I select a different outfit which corresponds to my mood.

You also run your own e-shop. What kind of items can we find there?

It’s not really an e-shop, it is an area where I sell all the clothes that I cannot keep at home, as I have so many things compared to the size of my flat!

Travelling seems to be an important part of your blogging life. What’s the best place you have visited so far?

I’ve got lovely memories from my road trip in Croatia and Vietnam. I plan to go to Asia again soon! :)

Last week saw the London Collections: Men take place; undoubtedly a highlight of the fashion calendar for any fashion fanatics.  The three-day event played host to some of the industry’s finest designers and provided a stage for them to showcase their collections for Spring/Summer 2014.

Topman, London Collections: MenOne of the collections that I was most looking forward to seeing was the Topman Design show on day one. Not only is TMD now seen as a leader in menswear, their unique, cutting-edge pieces are also sold at an affordable price online and at their Oxford Circus flagship store, providing the opportunity for fashionistas who are on a budget to own some of these excellent catwalk designs. The TMD collections are also often an indication of what is to come from the Topman brand as a whole during that specific season. The TMD show certainly did not disappoint. The collection included silk shirts with intricate western patterns; worn with mirrored sunglasses, silver belts and brogues. The collection once again proved that TMD is at the forefront of men’s fashion and I, for one, can’t wait for these pieces to become available to buy.

Christopher Kane’s SS14 collection was also a favourite of many at the London Collections. Inspired by 3D mapping of human faces, his collection, using neon design on black t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and shorts, provided an eye-catching and unusual set of designs.

For fans of bold print, design duo Agi and Sam, fresh from launching their new collection for Topman, displayed suits with bright print as well as striking and vibrant orange blazers and overcoats. James Long also showcased an intriguing collection titled ‘Beyond the Velodrome’. With colourful and striped skin-tight base layers inspired by cycling jerseys, coupled with knitwear, leather jackets and blazers, Long certainly provided one of the most exciting collections whilst still sticking to his trademark design.

Perhaps my favourite collection overall was that of Burberry Prorsum. The retro-inspired collection of classic coats, jumpers and shirts provided a collection that, whilst having its roots in the past, certainly has a place in today’s fashion world. The pastel coloured coats and jumpers layered over vibrant teal, yellow and blue shirts and bold red ties gave a real vibrant and modern feel to these classic looks.

The fantastic collections displayed last week showed us once again that the future of men’s fashion is in very safe hands.
