Modern dressing is about embracing the simplicity of clean lines and functional silhouettes, punched up with a dose of color and geometry when the moment calls for stepping clear of the background noise. The modern man has the confidence to wear what he loves, oozing the kind of self-assuredness and comfort that comes from owning his look. Luxurious fabrics add to the magic of living and breathing style.

About the Setting

HILuxury‘s modern man took to the N House in Portlock to showcase this season’s fashion-forward looks. With its clean lines and pops of color, the N House made for the perfect backdrop. Inspired by minimalist architectural design, owner Roy Nishimura hired architect Jim Schmit to create his vision of a light-filled, naturally ventilated home. Nishimura’s goal was to create an energy-efficient home that resonated a sense of calm and peace. Elements native to modern architecture are perfectly juxtaposed with floor-to-ceiling glass, an extraordinary wooden staircase and an outdoor courtyard and pool. The end result is a home balancing design and function: an urbane oasis.
