For our latest installment of Essentials, we teamed up with online fashion mainstay MR PORTER to present the daily must-haves of photographer, director, writer and producer Sean Lee-Davies. During his years as a magazine editor and photographer based between London and China, Sean interviewed and photographed some of most famous personalities in the world, from Marc Jacobs to Yao Ming. Having since shifted to the world of film, Davies, through his production company Activis Media, has written, directed, produced and hosted feature documentaries and TV shows for the likes of National Geographic and Channel News Asia.
After catching Sean during a rare break from his work, the acclaimed creative spills the contents of his Balenciaga backpack for our popular Essentials series. Preferring the comforts of Neil Barrett sweatpants, Davies maintains his casual look pairing a woven cotton Our Legacy jacket with Valentino sneakers and a Sacai T-shirt. Rounding out his selection are a pair of Saint Laurent acetate sunglasses, Givenchy pouch and Junghans watch.
