Today Slaters are delighted to present to you the style-musings of Mr Jonny Kaye – you may recognise him as a model from our recent wedding collection campaign. Keep reading to find out what style tips he had to offer and how he mixes casualwear and tailoring for his cutting edge look.
My go to outfit is black skinny jeans, usually with a t-shirt. I’d probably describe my style as the love child of James Dean and James Jebbia as I’m influenced by vintage fashion and skate culture too.
When I’m not modelling, I can usually be found behind the camera (@jk.pops). Collaborating with stylists with really bold visions that match and stretch my own taste is a great way to keep my look fresh and up to date with trends.
When it comes to my day to day style I look to Instagram, friends, designer collections/lookbooks. I take huge inspiration from the people I see out and about in Brighton – I’m lucky to call this place home. Literally anything goes; and that makes for some pretty interesting outfit choices..! I think that’s down to the mixture of the “hippy” eccentricity, the street scene and the smarter vibe. The Laines are where I shoot most of the people who make it onto my blog brightonstreetstyle.com. It was the free thinking and boundary pushing fashion of Brighton that got me inspired to get blogging in the first place.
I had my eye on the Harry Brown suit after shooting the Slaters campaign. The colour and texture of the suit are bang on trend and look great with my red hair too..! I’ve been playing around with a country meets city vibe – and it works great for that. Pairing casual every-day wear with more formal tailoring is a current favourite of mine. The Harry Brown waistcoat goes great with jeans, a shirt and Chelsea boots for a suited and booted (but not too try hard) evening look.
