Adam Gallagher Talks Style

One of the world’s top digital stars, Adam Gallagher of I Am Galla travels the far-flung corners of the globe to create his stunning life and style edits. 

A master of infusing the classics with a contemporary cool, as part of Harrods Destination Party he joined us in Istanbul to share his take on party season, styling up two exclusive looks – his night and day edit

Showcasing his style alongside fellow tastemakers from around the globe, we caught up with Adam to chat all things party, personal style, and packing for those adventures...

On Party Style…
“When it comes to parties, I like the classic, more simple approach. I love a sharp suit or a tuxedo  if it’s that sort of party, but I also love a good open collar on a shirt like James Bond. If I do opt for a tie it would be very Kennedy-esque. The classics - that’s what I draw my inspiration from.”

On Accessorising…
“Details are really important. Anyone can put on a suit, but it’s the accessories that really do the talking. A watch, a tie or even the shoes give an outfit its personality.”

On Destination Party…
“The opportunity to work with Harrods and be in Istanbul has been great. Bringing together influencers from around the world with their diverse styles and blogs is a great representation of Harrods and the different styles it offers.” 

On Parties In New York
“New York gets pretty fun during holiday season and then again in the summer. There are a lot, so I only go to the parties which really excite me.”

On Fashion In The US…
“I’m really interested in how fashion in the States has become really lifestyle. Technology is being worked into it, along with art and music, and it’s really exciting to see the direction it’s going in.” 

On His Day-To-Day Style
“I love good, iconic American design - clean, simple pieces in classic colours. My everyday style is pretty casual, I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of guy.”

On His Wardrobe Staples…
“I love a good pair of boots even in summer. I do a lot of adventuring with the blog so it keeps me really comfortable. Skinny jeans and a white T-shirt are the two pieces from my wardrobe I bring everywhere.”

On Style Rules
“I believe there aren’t too many rules. It really depends on the individual. I personally can’t do patterns together – but then I see really cool guys who can pull off checks with stripes and look great. My advice is be you and if you want to be daring then go for it.”

On Travel…
“Travelling is my passion. My blog and my brand are really taking a travel and lifestyle focus now. When we plan a trip we like to take time and really explore that country to find incredible places to shoot. One of my favourite places to visit has been Greece, it is just so beautiful.”

On Packing…
“With packing – I tend to throw a bunch of things I like in the suitcase and hope it works out in the end! I also love to buy things when I’m out there too.”

On Starting Out…
“It was actually a hobby, I was 17-years old, I was just graduating High School and I got voted ‘Best Dressed’ and so I felt inspired to do something with it. I took it to the internet and the rest is history.”
