It’s been more than a year since my last post. Jeeez! I’ve been pretty much vacant from every form of social media. That being said, my personal life has been a rollercoaster! I’ve gone back to university to study interior architecture, I’ve been painting again and I’ve left my job. And we’ll not talk about…

a bracelet for me by azuro

So, a little black box arrives for me in the post. accompanying the little black box is a note that reads “To Roman, we want to thank you for supporting our Azuro bracelet. this is only the beginning of our journey, and are excited to have you along with us. May this collection be the guardian…

We all know my blogging schedule is pretty loose recently, but I’ve been busy! However, I’ve been working on this little project with the team at BLK and it turned out too good. I’m actually not even sure where this site goes from here. Maybe this is it. Maybe I’ve peaked. Can it get better…

an interview by charlie ronce magazine

I’m not dead, but I have been slacking when it comes to giving an up-to-date Fashion Nazi piece. I recently spoke with a friend of mine about By Fashion Nazi and life, I guess, for a project he’s working. “Charlie Ronce – a zine for the modern ponce.” Charlie Ronce Magazine | Hi Roman, could you…

north of cool by the doomed regular

I love a good home-grown brand especially if that brand originated in the greatest city in the world, Sheffield! The Doomed Regular doesn’t fall under my usual visual aesthetic when it comes to a brand but I’m intrigued all the same. “Based in Sheffield, The Doomed Regular clothing collection explores the concept of social change…

think essential by roepi

If you’re one the three people that are still reading my blog (lol just kidding everyone is reading this blog *flips weave*), you’ll know that I’m a fan of brands that keep it simple in their ethos, product range, and design aesthetic. Indonesian brand Roepi, fits perfectly in that box with it’s minimalist shirts and…

another year by fashion nazi

I started this blog out of boredom and a need to document my inspirations & share my creativity. By Fashion Nazi, has been a great outlet for my creative frustrations and has accomplished everything I set out for it to be and more, It’s the ‘more’ that I’m most proud of and surprised by. The…

another post by fashion nazi

Recently, Blogging Edge nominated me as their best men’s fashion blogger of the year and you all piled in with your votes to show your support of my online ramblings, and I’m so grateful! However, your efforts did not go unnoticed because Blogging Edge totally agreed with you and declared me their best men’s fashion…

vote by fashion nazi

As you probably know the kind folk over at Blogging Edge thought I had one of the best men’s fashion blog in the entire country, it’s true, and decided to put me up for one of their blog awards under the men’s fashion category! However, my competitive side has come out slightly and I need…

streetwear evolution by pia

Nowadays, it’s hard to pin down and define exactly what ‘streetwear’ is. It’s so dynamic and changeable due to its influences from skate, hip-hop and surf cultures. The style initially emerged in the late 70s in California and it’s been said that American surfer-turned-designer, Shawn Stussy, invented streetwear by expressing himself and his personal culture…

an introduction by pia

I first began blogging under the name ‘Pia Gloria’ which is my first and middle name, the reason behind this is because back when I was in school, the ‘done thing’ in lessons which involved computers was to Google each other’s names to see what came up, and no one knew my middle name so…

amy by emily

Many will recall reading of her downward spiral in the magazines and viewing countless photographs of her walking the streets, her general appearance being gaunt and unhealthy and wearing little clothing. Amy, a documentary film directed by Asif Kapadia focuses on the story of soul singer Amy Winehouse from her life as an aspiring teenage…

another blog by fashion nazi

When I first set up By Fashion Nazi I completely intended it to be a typical men’s fashion blog like the rest. However, it has become something slightly different and I’m glad. I truly never expected to blog about architecture, photographers and Korean crafts. However, having all these references and inspired creators and pieces seems…

the far north by joseph hartley

I’ve never been one to enjoy a lecture or any kind of extended talk, I’ve got a very short attention span, That being said, I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to see three artist/designer/makers talk about their work and processes and one in particular caught all of my attention, The Butcher, Baker, Designer, Maker, Joseph…

cinematographic inspiration by a single man

‘’Sometimes I think I’m crazy cause I see things so differently than everybody else.’’ You see, there is meaning in everything, and nothing happens for no reason. People encounter other hundreds of people on the streets, let’s say, daily, without knowing what they are actually doing:passing by other hundreds of stories, each and every one of them…
