Chronicles of Never earrings



I recently acquired myself these square earrings in black by chronicles of never from one of my favourite stores in Sydney Southwest trader. The industrial style studs were just what I was looking for to fit with my style...

Scent of a man part II: Odeur 53


Odeur 53 by Comme Des Garcon is an abstract fragrance to say the least. The fragrance is created by chemically re-producing 53 inorganic scents like sand dunes, washing drying in the wind, burnt rubber, and the freshness of oxygen to name but a few, using a method that takes nothing from nature so is truly environmentally friendly...if it sounds totally out there that's probably because it is..this one isn't for the average joe...it's an aromatic experience like no other for the avante garde individual...it mixes well with escentric molecules and the minimalist bottle design isn't hard on the visio...

Pure Matte Black Obsession: Knockout



In line with my obsession for matte black at the moment I thought to myself why not matte black nail polish..that's right matte black nail polish, no shine whatsoever. So I set out to find one and thought it would be easy but apparently not. I stumbled across knockout cosmetics and it is the only truly matte black nail polish on the market. Created by celebrity make-up artist Mick Potter when he to couldn't find a true matte finish nail polish..Think art deco meets rock chic and totally unique...don't be afraid to be different...

Scent of a man: Escentric Molecules


Molecule 01 by escentric molecules is my new fragrance of choice. This cult fragrance was launched in London to an exclusive client waiting list that not even Mischa Barton could get on. So let's just say you can't pick this up at just any department store. The fragrance pays homage to a single scent ingredient - Iso E Super - which chemically reacts with each individual body chemistry creating a unique scent for each wearer and a pheromone like effect. It also works great mixed with other fragrances. I recently mixed it with Comme Des Garcon Odeur 53 the result: an olefactory experience like no other...

All Black Everything... the dark warrior


heavy matte black card, gloss black logo, black leather cord and black safety pin...all black everything...it's all in the details I spend alot of time on each minute detail till the final product is unveiled down to the last measurement. I lose sleep over this but I love it... you can expect the same energy from the collection...patience is a virtue don't rush perfection...

Lord of the Rings...


While watching a documentary on King Karl Lagerfeld and seeing the extent of rings that man possesses it occurred to me that I am in need of some rings... I set forth to find exactly what I was looking for... the right rings that suited d a n i e l p a t r i c k... I stumbled across these two at Southwest Trader in Sydney... They are chronicles of Never... I bought one on one day and returned a day later to purchase the other... I love the sheer weight and size of these rings... they definitely satisfied my hunger for rings... for the moment anyway...my next ring I'm thinking a two finger ring...

d a n i e l p a t r i c k... reality to dreams | the escape


This is the story of a distant travelers journey from times gone by to self discovery…The journey begins when our traveler realizes his reality is not what he wants it to be and moves into the realm of dreams forever free to create and be… stepping out from the shadows of brothers and others his journey begins… in his travels he discovers a far away place, a city full of bright lights and towering mountains of metal and glass, a jungle of concrete and dreams, a melting pot, a place he feels he has been before but perhaps in another life, perhaps not, but this place becomes his new home a place where his imagination can run wild…this is d a n i e l p a t r i c k and this is the beginning... this is the story told by the collection... conventional thinking is a distant foe... prepare yourself...

Style Icon....Steve Mcqueen




Steve Mcqueen is classic male cool...

Dsquared2...Spring 2009











I know I'm late on this one but I really love this collection and how it fuses that 80s hip hop style with Italian tailoring. The styling of the show is on point loving the accessories and the long socks.. it's daniel patrick esque.... Run DMC like...These are my favourite looks from the show...

Fashion Destination: Milan, Italy..









I love Italian culture they really have a quality and passion about everything they do especially the way they dress. When you see the made in italy tag in a garment it is a sign of quality. It may be more expensive to produce in Italy but I want quality so my range will be produced in Italy. I think it sets you apart from the rest. Italian men's style is impeccable and the women sure know how to put it together......daniel patrick made in italy...
