My Life. My Style. My Look: The Digital Designer

First impressions count and one of the biggest ways we present ourselves to the world is through our clothes. That’s why style can be closely intertwined with everything from where we live to how spend our time, whether it’s work or play. New Look Men is celebrating self-expression through its new SS17 collection, championing individuality and personality through fashion. This week we meet New Looks digital designer, Nicolas Carter.

My Life

I live in Dalston, which is great for music, fashion and food – my three biggest interests. I love to get out and about as much as possible, especially in the summer months. I’m from Toronto originally and studied in LA for four years before moving to London, and I love it here. The eclectic mix of people and styles influences my work as an international digital designer for New Look Men on newlook.com.

My Style

I’m inspired by both catwalk looks and street style. I like laidback clothes with a slight rock’n’roll edge, and I like to put my own spin on classic styles. Looking like I’ve made an effort puts me in a better mindset and also affects how people respond to me. I think what you choose to wear can’t help but reflect who you are and represent your personality and outlook, even before you’ve said anything.

My Look

This is an outfit I’d wear to a summer barbecue or to hang out with my friends at some of the bars we know in east London. Cream-on-cream is a surprisingly easy look to pull off, and I love this casual, laidback spin on a blazer.
