Medy Navani sits down with Edgar Magazine to talk all things Style.
What’s your normal Sunday to Thursday office style?
I love my suits and colourful trousers, specifically belt-less trousers. In Dubai, it is always hot so loafers are a must and I like to add a clash of colour with a pocket square. I wear white or black tailor-made shirts because they fit with almost any outfit, but it’s very important that they have no pockets and I always add my initials.
Do you wear sneakers to work?
I love sneakers, but never for work. When I put my sneakers on I know it is the weekend. The brand does not matter as long as they are comfortable and stylish. My favourites are my denim Louis Vuitton sneakers.
What is the most important aspect when you pick out my clothing? colour, comfort, quality, or shape?
It’s definitely the selection of the right combination to sit and look good. You can be dressed completely in black, with inexpensive cloth but still look impressive. It’s the way the cloth shapes and highlights the person wearing it. Having the right structure and shape will result in comfort. If it doesn’t fit you, it’s not made for you, so don’t buy it.
What is your shopping tactic?
I still believe in seeing, touching, wearing and feeling a piece before purchasing it. That results in plenty of shopping trips.
What is your ‘Friday morning” look?
White ripped stretch denim, blue long-sleeved denim shirt, blue denim sneakers with invisible socks, sunglasses and watch.
Whats your favourite watch?
I am loyal customer of Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe, but I have to admit that lately, I have fallen in love with a Vacheron Constantin Patrimony skeleton in rose gold. What a watch!
Do you to like wearing Suits?
I am addicted to suits, the more the better. The majority of mine are tailor-made by a very talented designer in Dubai. A couple of my favourites are Tom Ford evening suits, Dior, Brunello Cucinelli and my latest brand Suitsupply.
Whats your favourite beach shorts?
In a last-minute rush for a beach holiday, I got the Ralph Lauren swimming shorts in all 12 colours – that should cover me for a while!
Jewellery on a man – yes or no?
Yes to bracelets, no to earrings.
