Park Hae-jin was pictured at Gimpo International Airport on 1st September 2014 in Seoul, South Korea. The South Korean artiste was pictured in an Acne Studios 'I Want More' sweatshirt.

Interestingly, we featured Park Hae-jin two weeks ago on the blog, where he was pictured at the same airport, in an Acne Studios 'You First' sweatshirt. He looked really stylish back then, I guess if it ain't broken why fix it? I really love this outfit, and would wear this entire look from head to toe. That slight hunch, that airport sidewalk is my runway, that purposefully messy hair with that all important superstar off-duty sunglasses: total gorgeousness.

'I Want More'. Another cryptic message from Acne Studios. Three simple words but enough to spur you on to be a little more ambitious in life, to be a better version of what you can be. Also three simple words to crumble you like a cookie. Instead of focusing on what's missing, we could learn to appreciate what's already there. There are two ways of being rich: One is to have all you want, the other is to be satisfied with what you have. Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy. The question to ask ourselves: Do I want more?

Let's put my overthinking to one side. I love the colour palette on Park Hae-jin, and the beautiful dot details from his white shirt cuffs gently peeking out of his sweatshirt. Lovely baby pastels on the sweatshirt and travel wallet, contrasted with the rebellious ripped denims. So many interesting details with his carefully put together look, but none working against the other.

Chris Hemsworth's Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC - Montblanc Bohème Collection launch, Shanghai

Chris Hemsworth attended the global launch of the Montblanc Bohème Collection on 28th August 2014 at the Children's Art Theatre in Shanghai, China. Chris Hemsworth wore a dark coloured suit over a navy shirt, and accessorised with a silver band ring and Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC timepiece.

How incredibly blue are Chris Hemsworth's eyes? While I don't usually recommend wearing a dark navy shirt against the black / navy suit, the 'Thor' actor's choice of attire provided a great contrast against his porcelain fair skin and accentuated the beautiful tone of his eyes. Never thought I would use Thor and porcelain in the same sentence, I guess Chris Hemsworth has mastered the intricate art of fusing hard and soft. His 90s boy band hairstyle surprisingly did not look dated, just how did he do it?

And of course my eyes were drawn to the gorgeous timepiece that Chris Hemsworth wore at the event. Love the very masculine black casing against the stark white numerals and markings on the watch face. The stunning timepiece was first presented earlier this year during the SIHH in Geneva (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie). The diamond patterned watch strap is from Montblanc's new Extreme Leathergoods Collection which will be released from September 2014. Great synergy to unite common grounds within their leather goods and watches businesses, which sounds logical but somehow rarely seen elsewhere.

Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC

A little more on the Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC: DLC stands for  “diamond-like carbon”, the material / treatment that the toughness of the stainless steel case's surface has been increased to. Miniscule glass spherules are blasted under high pressure to give the steel a microscopic texture to which the DLC coating can almost inseparably adhere, thus producing a fine matte finish on the surface. The colour of the diamond-like carbon coating is described as “Black 4”, which stands for “very black”. The black diamond patterned leather strap is made of black “Vulcarboné”, and is scratch, water and fire resistant. 

A stunning timepiece with extreme qualities, much like Thor with his porcelain smooth skin. The Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC will be available from autumn 2014.

Maroon 5 held an album release party at iHeartRadio Theater on 26th August 2014 in Burbank, California. The group performed tracks from their new album "V", and frontman Adam Levine wore a maroon (pun intended?) coloured plaid / check shirt from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane.

Love the shirt, thought Adam Levine looked great. He is giving me a David Beckham vibe, but then again I don't know who rocked the look first.

Great coordinated outfits amongst the three attendees. The ripped denims (possibly also from Saint Laurent) were a little too risqué for me, and though I love the Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers I feel they were fighting for attention with the jacket. But otherwise a rather polished appearance from William Chan. It is often difficult to wear a silver jacket and not come across as though one is wrapping a bacon foil, but I do like the sporty and stylish Saint Laurent jacket.

Jude Law attended the screening of the Johnnie Walker Blue Label short film, The Gentleman’s Wager at the Cipriani Hotel during Venice Film Festival on 27th August 2014 in Venice, Italy. Jude Law looked really good in an Oliver Spencer blue cotton blazer when he attended the photocall by the scenic Venice River.

"The Gentleman’s Wager" is a 6 minutes short feature from British director Jake Scott, and features Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini. It tells the story of a wager between two men striving for personal progress through the quest for a truly rare experience. Jude Law takes on the role of a man who, despite having it all, challenges himself to strive for something he wants that money can’t buy. Call it a long Johnnie Walker commercial or a short feature film, Jude Law is one very captivating and charismatic performer. Still one of my favourite actors to date. And oh, very loving Giancarlo Giannini's sunglasses on the boat.

Looking great Orlando, even though that wet-look hair makes you look like the scary Marco Pierre White. Love the fitted blazer and denims with the matching floral shirt, but also loving the looser silhouette as shown on the runway. Great look to separate the man from the boys (ie Bieber).
