London Street Style Oscar de la Renta Biker Ikat Jacket

Oscar De La Renta Ikat Jacket J Brand Jeans

Millie Brown was my last click of the day, the light was almost gone, my fingers were ice-cold and I had lost all sensations to them.

I had packed my camera and was walking away when I saw Millie listening to her iPod sitting on the bench. An artist herself (you can see her work here),Millie spends most of her time between UK and USA. Dream job!

I love how she has combined a vintage sweater, J Brand Jeans with beautiful warm colored Oscar de la Renta Jacket with Black Wedge boots. I always like the equation of One statement piece at a time and it works here. You can’t really see here, but her accessories are Dominic Jones which is a must see, so be sure to click on that link.

This Ikat print Oscar de la Renta jacket is from the Spring 2005 collection, but the Biker jacket has made such a strong revival that you may be able to get your hand on various textures and print, like this Clover Canyon printed jacket crepe de chine jacket.

London Mens Collection:Chris Chasseaud


It was great bumping into fellow blogger Chris,at London Collections. I met Chris late last year at a few events and then again at our last London Bloggers Meetup at Bumpkin Notting Hill.

He is a contributor for a few websites (apart from his own blog) such as Ape to Gentlemen and Be Well dressed.


It was a quite a contrasting mix at LCM this year, there was the quintessential Sartorial Dandy look, and on the other side you had a HUGE urban-street Cool  Shoreditch look which was seen across the 3 days.For me that is London, the contrast between the East London Urban and West London Sauve coming together to make London Fashion Scene so distinct.



London Collections Men: Dandyism and Collar Pin

London Collections Men Suit Tie Pin

In my career as a Fashion Designer I have had the pleasure and privilege to work with a few Menswear brands, both urban and tailored,and I must admit I do have a bias towards the sartorial look.

I had a quick chat with Dan Kenny from Idol Magazine who was dressed to the T, in a textured wool navy suit and polka dot tie. What I loved was how his orange socks matched the LCM pin. But the cake was taken away by the little golden Collar Pin.

I remember growing up to my Mom (who was a teacher in the same school as my sister and I) getting home with us,only to switch on the tele to get a sneak preview of Pierce Brosnan in Remington Steele, and thats the first thing I thought of when I saw the Collar pin. Suave!

More to come in gradual batches:)

London Street Style: Trench and Zara Bag

London Street Style ZARA BAG


I clicked  Liv Østrem, a menswear Tailor from Norway at London Collections Mens right before she was going in for a show.

I loved how classic her style is with the Michael Kors watch Gold watch and Gold Spherical ring, a cozy pin striped scarf and a fresh take on a trench.

That Zara bag, has been such a huge hit in London, and I have spotted people in my Bikram Yoga class carrying that as their Yoga bag (I and though Yoga is all about Eco – Organic bags:) ).

All you non-Londoners, have you seen/own this Zara bag and do you love it?

London Street Style: Silver Sleeves

We have been so many contrast sleeves in all shapes and forms,it started with Celine over 2 seasons ago and now I have witnessed version if Denim Sleeves,leather sleeves,printed Camo sleeves but I must say this baseball jacket with the silver leather sleeves does stand out quite a bit.

Great layering there,what do you think?
I like the black leather cascade jacket under the baseball jacket and the denim shirt with the blue care neck jumper all coming together as one complete look.
