LDN Bloggers and French Start-up Rentez-Vous partnered for an event on the 11th May at Port-Of-Entry in Old street.
Rentez-Vous was founded in 2012 by Fiona Designi, with a novel idea of renting out your wardrobe. The idea is simple, as we all MUST acknowledge we all have loads of clothes in the back of our wardrobe which we sometimes forget about(Cheeky me) or just one those “I don’t know when I will wear that dress” dresses! The idea is to recycle these clothes, and get some money out of the money you spent on it initially by renting out your clothes for 2-3 weeks! Something like renting out your couch for a period of time. None of us mind a bit of extra ch-ching!
So, this was a one of a kind event, held for the very first time in London. To mark the launch of the website, Rentez-Vous partnered with LDN Bloggers to get a hand selected-invite-only Bloggers in with 5 pieces of their clothing, equipped with a functional Paypal account and a willingness to style themselves in other’s pieces!
The result was spectacular afternoon with clothes being swapped and cameras clicking away!
Any-who, my friend Chloé, founder of chloedigital.com and I are such geeks, that we decided to fuse her undying love for tech codes and my street style images into this little widget! Of course this would have not happened had Fiona not randomly mentioned it over a glass of vino! Birds of the same feather you see!
It tells you what Blogger rented who’s clothes, how very clever? Even if I have to say it myself!
Last time I wrote about Justin O’Shea was my Monday Men post in December and secretly everytime I saw his mere presence in a blog or a magazine, my heart skipped a beat!
Thus, it was no surprise when I found out that the amazing Adrien Sauvage did an exclusive shoot with Justin O’Shea wearing sartorial pieces from A.Sauvage’s Classic collection.A secret bird tells me Justin and Sauvage spent time hand selecting the pieces shown below on Justin.
Clicked in Mayfair, London, The pictures are powerful and sauve. Credit goes to both the men!
Justin joins the likes of Jude Law,Spike Jonze, Craig Roberts and many more who have been photographed by Sauvage.
Sauvage, is multi faceted talent bag! London based Fashion Designer,Photographer and Director, is the man behind This Is Not a Suit and talks about the Art of D.E (Dress Easy) in a video which he directed in 2011.( Video at the bottom of the page)
Have a browse through A. Sauvage’s latest collection. I love the overlay of print and texture and the juxtaposition of wool and leather all coming together to resonate his philosophy of D.E.
