The annual celebration of the Modern Man, Festival Of Steve, showcases local designers and retailers, stylists and outfitters to celebrate Melbourne's modern, stylish gentleman. Now in its sixth year, the festival is hosted by City Precinct and supported by City of Melbourne.
The event will be held at The Kelvin Club on Saturday, June 2nd from 12pm – 6pm.
For those who aren't members of The Kelvin Club, this is a fantastic opportunity to see inside one of the city’s oldest and most exclusive members-only establishments.
We invited five of Melbourne's most stylish fashion influencers to "Live Like Steve" for an evening; suiting up and stepping out to experience the hospitality of some of our favourite City Precinct members.
The gents did just that, and our Steves - Steve Tilly (@stevetillystyle), Stephen Kotsanlee (@theyoungagent), Jack Reynolds (@itsmejack), Austin Levine (@officialtinno) and Nathan Leung (@mr_nl) - hit the town.
Staying in the heart of the city at The Adelphi Hotel, our guests were greeted as they entered their rooms with an enviable range of goods from City Precinct members, including Mr Elk, Athletes of Wine , Bloom Boy, Mitchell McCabe Menswear, Four Pillars Gin, Laneway Learning, Styled by Sally and Carl Nave Bespoke Tailoring.
The first stop of the evening? Men's Biz in the Royal Arcade. Our Steves enjoyed a whiskey tasting and quick lesson in the finer points of men's grooming before venturing to Kirk’s Cellar Bar to enjoy their European-style menu with matched wines .
All Steve-d out, as the evening came to an end the lads then returned to The Adelphi Hotel to get a luxurious night's rest.
A huge thank you to all City Precinct members who donated their time, venues and goods to the evening. For readers wishing to Live Like Steve for a day, head over to www.festivalofsteve.com.au for event details.
