Day in the life of Simon Glazin
For the latest London Collections Men, we worked with a range of influencers and industry insiders. We invited them in to select pieces from our current offering and incorporate it into their everyday style. Fashion writer, Simon Glazin writes for a diverse range of titles across media mediums including Glamour and The Daily Mail and if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy, Glazin also has a personal blog where he shares witty and humorous insights on fashion and culture. Here's how he styled up Primark for this season's LCM.
In the style stakes, Simon’s split between Boy George and Adam Lambert on the style front, admiring each for their individuality and daring sense of self when it comes to fashion. ‘Both of these men are totally unique in their style, and you can tell they dress completely for themselves, and don't care what people think. I admire that.’ Personally Glazin likes to play with proportion 'I love anything draped, oversized and drop crotched'. This helps Glazin create a distinct silhouette by layering, long lines and voluminous shapes played out in oversized, loose fits and lengthy garments
Glazin doesn't believe in doing things by halves. He believes in indulging fully into a trend. ‘I live by the more is more approach. If you love print, do it head to toe, if you love colour, clash them.' Simon also gives an interesting piece of advice, as it's easy to get stuck buying different versions of the same thing to counteract this, he offers, 'I would always suggest buying one piece that you wouldn't normally buy, it makes your wardrobe more interesting.'
What stood out to Glazin at Primark was the diverse selection of longer line clothing which is a key silhouette in store for this season, ‘I love all the longline T-shirts; I have all of Primark's that are currently in-store at the moment. They're so wearable, with anything!’ Glazin prefers to buy into both high fashion and high street, 'we are lucky to have the best high street in the world, plus an amazing group of British designers. Simon believes that brand perceptions of Primark are out-dated and says, 'Primark are now catering for the more fashion forward person, both men and women'.
