ALL THE WAY FROM AUSTRIA!!!
Black Men Living Abroad Series
Christopher Squires grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He graduated from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business and was a pitcher/closer for the baseball team. He was drafted by the Miami Marlins and spent his time as a journeyman, traveling the country from Rookie Ball to Double A, as well as a few Independent ball stints in leagues stretching from Canada to Mexico.
His baseball career eventually led him to Austria where his dream of starting a fashion label and creative studio would come to fruition. Off‐seasons were spent further developing his passion for fashion and style, a bloodline trend cultivated by the small boutique and personal shopping service started by his Grandmother and Great Aunt in New York City. He took on roles as a personal stylist for men’s clothier J. Hilburn, he has explored the modeling world from coast to coast as well as abroad, and worked for the independent luxury label, Weber + Weber that is now based in Vienna, Austria.
Luvet Lifestyle was born in 2016 as a blog to connect others to content centered around international life and boutique fashions and styles, while encouraging them to embrace their uniqueness, chase their dreams and design a life they love. Soon after, it was time to move the closet design work into the foreground and begin creating garments that embodied the Luvet attitude. Mr. Squires continues to play and coach baseball for the Dornbirn Indians in Austria.
His style reflects his passion for baseball, and sits at the intersection of hard and soft, rigidity and fluidity, rugged elegance. He encourages a minimalistic base infused with personality. Throughout Luvet Lifestyle’s pieces and content, you will find authentic and original details created and produced solely by Mr. Squires. These include, but are not limited to photos, music, logos, and much of the overall aesthetic. Inquiries on these topics, including styling and image consulting, for personal use, your website, business or brand, can be discussed by contacting Mr. Squires.
