Capturing the Sartorialist in action…

I know I have been AWOL for a while, and I will thank LDNBloggers for that! It is always a joy and struggle when you start something new!

Like this blog,Trendbridged!

WordPress.com just sent me my 2nd birthday card, and it made me squeal like a teenage girl (not very different from my usual squeal!) I remember when I started TB, I was always out and about capturing images, cribbing how big the camera was and that I will never carry it again, and the day when it wasnt with me, I was cribbing why the camera is not with me!

My regular readers must know ,that it was Scott Schuman’s website The Sartorialist is what inspired me to start Trendbridged.com, and I had the pleasure and privilege of meeting him last year at Fashion Week.

In the 5 minute conversation (First 2 went in me finding my voice to say Hello!!) he said things which made me want to do more with Trendbridged.com. He shared tips to click better images, what he looks out for in a shot, what lens he uses, that Garance was joining him after her Lunch before they head into a show, and how to KEEP ON clicking pictures to get better pictures!

That was the day I wanted to do so much more with TB!

Well this LFW I saw Scott walk past us (I was chatting with Yvan Rodic and The Sophie Lear of  Face Hunter and The littlest things) and I could not resist clicking him in action, only curious to see what the final image would look like. So here it is guys!

And this is my picture of him clicking the above picture.

Work in Progress

Who inspires you to be better at what yo do? I would love to know!

I promise to post more..

Keep a look out,

Dent De Man Trousers are Hot stuff!

Dent De Man London Street Style

I met my friend Chris Chasseaud last night for a catch up from our crazy blog-hobnobbing schedules and we started talking about this new label who he is the Brand Manager for, Dent De Man. I absolutely loved the new photo shoot…watch the space for more..and I realised I have been awfully slack in posting this image!

The first 2 images are what I clicked at London Collections of Toni Tran of Fashitects.blogspot.co.uk who is an Ambassador of Dent De Man and it looks as if he and Dent De Man and Toni are a match made in Fashion Heaven.The rest of the image are from their campaign.

It’s an upcoming label and has already created a buzz around with its eclectic African Inspired prints individually sourced, each telling its story.

It is a great change from the existing sartorial scene and gives a new twist to the Modern Gentleman’s wardrobe.Of course, you need to be open to work with prints in your wardrobe..New Year Resolution Number 31 perhaps?

Have a look and go “like” them on Facebook to know when they start selling online soon!

London Mens Collection:Chris Chasseaud

CHRIS CHASSEAUD Trendbridged.com

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 Trendbridged.com

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 Trendbridged.com

 

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?
