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.
Have a look at the complete collection here: A. Sauvage’s latest collection.
See below the video from 2011. “Art of D.E”

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,
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!

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.
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:)
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?
Leave your comments,
I spotted these beautiful Thierry Mugler Iridescent brogues on Stavros Karelis,Head buyer for Machine A, a store/gallery space in Soho stocking young and emerging designers in their Brewer street location. This is a store I am definitely keeping my eye out for!
Thierry Mugler Spring Summer 2013 Homme Collection
As you can see all my last few posts have been quick one liner of the street style images of London Collections, held from 6th-9th January 2013 at the Hospital Club, Covent Garden.
I came across Sibling for the first time at the London Fashion Week few seasons ago, and loved their distinct chunky knits in vibrant colours with textures which just explodes in front of you and you are trying to figure out in your head..it is so them..yet so different!
I loved what Santi Rodriguez was wearing,the bright red Lion face jumper with a neutral coat.It was cozy,urban and colourful to just cheer all of us waiting outside for a splash of colour, and the splash of colour we got! for a grey day like today this jumper was the perfect conversation starter! We even had a few men on bikes to stop and ask..”Why are you being clicked?” This is exactly why I love London!
Anyway Sibling had their show late today at 7:00 p.m. and with their chunky Snoods and oversized Cabled Gloves, I can safely say they did it again! Worked their Sibling charm!
Love the multi pattern jumper, perfect Christmas Jumper for me!The emphasise on oversized accessories can not be missed, starting from the scarves,the gloves and the nice chunky Beanie!

Well this one ideally should go under the London Collections Tag, but these chaps were on their way back to office from the gym, crossing the Hospital Club, when I spotted them, Which initiated a whole range of paparazzis style street shutter bugs starting behind me, so Brad and Colin if you guys have your pictures plastered in street style images, you know what to do:)
If only Lunch-time workouts always end up like this?
