Christian Louboutin Marimalus Patent Metrograf

If your partner style borders on the edgy, we suggest instead of sky-high heels, these 85mm ones. In multi-coloured silk screen-printed calfskin, it harks back to the creativity of street art with embellished gold spikes on heels.

Paul Smith Men’s Slim-Fit Teal Cotton And Linen-Blend Buggy-Lined Blazer

In case your better partner veers away from colour, this season you can help him push boundaries. Let him indulge in bright hues and this Paul Smith teal blazer can be a great option.

Gucci’s Oversize Elton John T-shirt

All Elton John fans out there, this T-shirt is just meant for you. Made in whitewashed cotton jersey with Elton John’s ‘Levon-Goodbye’ emblazoned, it is a perfect separate that can be paired with a variety of jeans, trousers, and skirts. The back is equally interesting – as an homage to the 80s video-gaming culture, the Guccy print on the back is displayed in the graphic font of the SEGA logo—a fixture in the colourful arcades and coin-op gamerooms of the time.

Reebok’s Victoria Beckham Hoodie 

Even though you might be pampering your dapper self with formal sartorial finery often, a hint of casual vibe in your wardrobe can do no harm. And when it’s a hoodie designed by Victoria Beckham for Reebok, you got to grab one for your partner. The collaboration which came last month is meant for guys who are on a lookout for relaxed pieces. This hoodie is in an oversized fit with an extra-long length and a loose slouchy shape.

With Louis Vuitton signature on temples, LV studs, and LV Circle logo on lenses, if you want to make an impression, these will help.
