Athlete Safari: Athlete Dresser Awards 2018

December 16, 2018

(Report by Kai)


Where do I start.... 


Each year, "Safari", a Japanese Men's fashion magazine, presents an award to Japanese athletes who are excelling in t



heir field while maintaining a fashionable presence out of competition. 


And I was nominated!


I have to say that I was shocked to say the least. I have always taken care to "be presentable" and to look professional, but to be recognised for fashion was something that I never expected. 


The awards ceremony was held in Tokyo on December 8th. 


I had a whirlwind trip to Japan - flying in on Friday morning, attending the Red Bull Crashed Ice event on Friday night, and then the Athlete Safari: Athlete Dresser Awards event on Saturday afternoon before flying home that night! 


The event was an unreal experience, and I was lined up alongside some of Japan's highest profile athletes on stage at the Hankyu-Men's store in Tokyo!



A huge thank you to Safari for the opportunity, and to Berluti for the beautiful burgundy suit!
