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,
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.
What do you think if the contrast sleeve look?
At London Collections Men: 2nd Day
You could spot Julia Sarr-Jamois in a crowd from a distance. The perfect Afro gives it away!That is a trademark, ofcourse the Denim jackets, the sneakers, alternating between the 5inch Stilettos and the prints and colours thrown together to make the perfect look, helps in spotting the 23 year old Model-turn-Stylist-turn-Editor for Wonderland Magazine at practically every Fashion event.
Half Sengalese-half French,Julia started her career pretty soon,dropping out of college and pursuing an internship at I.D.Magazine, and soon securing a the Editor Title at Wonderland (which I think she has been at since 2010).
She can work a casual sportswear with wide legged trouser,looking effortless chic with that hair and statement accessories!(Almost always with huge sunglasses!)
Some of her looks:

With the Winter officially setting and rumours of a mild snowfall too, I was more than tempted to snuggle in my duvet and not venture out at all today!
The temperature is hitting the lower end single digits (Read as 0 degrees) which gives us a chance to get our fur coats,scarves,gloves and everything else possibly spelling out “WARMTH” out! Thus explains me going through My London Street Style photos folder to pull out some “Comfort” images!
Considering Halloween is around the corner,and Tangerine has been the colour of the year,all the pumpkins and warm colours made me choose this picture from the London Fashion Week,when I was out and about clicking Street Style images.
This man actually reminds me of one of my very good friend back in India, Mohit Rai, who is a freelance stylist, and I can so imagine him strutting this off with absolute swan like grace!I would love to shoot a few images of him in a cozy knit!
Orange is one of the best colours to invest in this Fall Winter, for outerwear, Please see my trending board here for more inspiration.
Ooooh It is getting so hot in here!
It usually takes me 1 hour to source images, and 1 hour to edit and write and post, but I must say, This Monday Men has got my fingers aching for more!
You must have spotted Mr.Charming Justin Doss in Tommy Ton’s tumblr or GQ’s street style, and boy oh boy, this man is sizzling with style and panache.The word around the town is, he is a “Man of who wears many hats”, and why not, apart from the obvious picture clues!
Justin Has has had a an excellent and a VERY steep career path with stints at Ralph Lauren, Sid Mashburn and Barneys where he was one of the top menswear buyers, and then replacing the very Senior Lisa Cohen after her retirement post her 28-year tenure at GQ. May I add, Justin is all of 27 years of age!! PHEWWW!!
His style: is an European Man in New York, with an eloquent taste in Sartorial dressing, worn always with a smug smile and may almost know all the milliners in town, considering his Hat collections!
Having said this, I must insist on all of you checking out my friend Amrit’s Wandering Brummell blog where he curates and blogs all about excellent Men’s style!Keep it up Mate!
I Came across this video on Jake Davis‘s blog. Details and expressions captured beautifully!!

We all know the must have colours for the season are Cobalt Blue,Oxblood Red and a carryover from last season(and the season before..) NEON!
It’s a combination which can work great if done right,and this is a specimen,Ladies and Gentlemen how to wear the trend!
The ostrich feather adds texture and depth to the eye catchy blue while the sequin tones down the neon.(I saw a skirt at Zara which looks the same,and the new colour way is now Ombré dyed
The 2 contrasting texture could go awfully wrong,but the opposites actually work together,as the feather soften the sequins.
I know I have seen the shoes before..but I just can’t place it! Any suggestions?
Are you planning to wear the trend this season? Leave words of wisdom behind..or just click the “like” button in acknowledgment:)

It has been an amazing week so far!
All those of you who are tech savvy,image diggers, social tweeters and are merely interested in the vast vast world of Social Media, then the Social Media Week is the place to be. With great speakers and people, the vibe is buzzing with creative minds all speaking the same language! I just happened to come back from a “Content Creation” event on the HMS President (yes that amazing boat on the River Thames) organised by this Digital Marketing agency called The Quad (who’s office is actually is the very same boat!!)
Been very inclined towards Social Media, and PR, I decided to be inspired and feature an image I clicked at London Fashion Week of fellow blogger Emma Creen, who has a blog called Mademoiselle Creen. Emma works for this uber cool company called PRShots which should be on every bloggers bookmark! I use it quite often while researching and writing articles for other websites. Please go and check it out, ‘coz you WILL find it handy!
I loved Emma’s collar with the studs and special attention to the Centre Button, with the little skull head. It is all in the details,my friends.. teamed with a very dainty paisley-floral print, the collar stands out even more.
There are quite a few collars you can get your hands on,I have one from Topshop.com but I am currently coveting this 3.1 Phillip Lim Metallic Leather Collar which is versatile and so very Chic!
Please share your ‘Top Notch’ Style stories!
Quilted jackets are the best fall accessory.Teamed with basic jeans and nicely lace here.
What do you think of this look?
