A day in my shoes: Ali Al Bana

Hey everyone,

We are back with our monthly 'A day in my shoes' segment, we can't believe a year has officially passed since we started this, uncovering what our precious Island and the Middle East has got to offer from style and fashion month after month which allows us to take a glimpse of the originality that every person carries within them through their own ways of portraying fashion. It has been wonderful

This February, is a very special month for us as we decided to take a minor detour from the path we usually take and share with you all another side of fashion that has been sadly shied away by many in our Sandbox: The world of Mens fashion. There has been a lot of concentration on women and fashion for the past years that we forget that fashion IS for everyone. And if you look closely, you'll notice not only how important fashion plays a role in molding a guys individuality but also the amount of dashing style most of them have.

Today we are proud to feature the young and fashionable, uprising Bahraini designer and blogger behind The Sartori-Ali, Ali Al Bana who we first spotted in Bahrain Fashion week back in 2011 showcasing his first collection on the runway. We love the touch of fierceness and edge he adds to his outfits, making them his own and admire how his style truly is a reflection of the person he is as he describes on his blog 'I'm obsessively opposed to the typical'.

What are your current favorite trends?
Now that it’s winter, And Mens Fashion Week just ended trends are being decided. To Be honest I don’t follow trends, I just follow what I’m extremely provoked by. Studs & Spikes ! My Closet is LITERALLY filled with clothing pieces that I have studded & spiked myself. I love over sized jumpers & the mens statement rings. One last thing, FUR lots of it.

Song of the day: She's got you high and you don't even know yet, It's the search for the time before it leaves without you, Have you lost your mind or has she taken all of yours too? What's this about? I figured love would shine through, We've lost romance this world has turned so see through
