December Style Icon of the Month, Vimal Vijayan

Vimal Vijayan is a successful model, actor and entrepreneur (you may have seen him star in adverts for likes of Emirates Airlines, HSBC and Dubai Shopping Festival to name a few), who also has a line of ultra-chic accessories, named V Square Accessories, under his belt. The 30-year old Indian-born style icon describes his style as “the modern classy man”, which is often influenced by his acting career. “My styling depends on how I want to portray myself on a certain day. The performer in me drives me to adapt my style to a character – so it ranges from corporate luxury suits on one day, to a casual funky street style ensemble the next!”

Look 1: Jimmy Choo shoes; Prada jeans; Bottega Venetta jumper

“I love The Luxury Closet because it’s a multi-brand luxury store at your fingertips! The concept is both catchy and appealing. I am in awe, of the way you have all the high end fashion products under one roof, and at the ease of your laptop or smart phone! You have luxury fashion delivered to your doorstep without having to do the tedious shopping routine.”

Look 2: Vivenne Westwood jacket; Prada jeans; Tod’s loafers

“My own style icon is David Beckham. He’s an inspiration for so many reasons, most of all because he has tried almost everything there is to experiment with in terms of styling and grooming. He has always been a trendsetter and always given his fans a new look to follow! He maybe a sportsman but he has always has it right when it comes to fashion.”

Look 3: Jean Paul Gaultier shirt, trousers and jacket; Montblanc watch; Louis Vuitton shoes

“Good accessories are definitely my trademark style. My looks are always complimented with appropriate eyewear, watches, belt etc.  I just think accessories add the “wow” factor to an outfit, hence why I started my own collection, V Square Accessories”

Look 4: Baume & Mercier watch; Gucci shirt; Tom Ford sunglasses; Moschino coat; Louis Vuitton shoes
