We spotted Robert through the crowd; there was a sea of people dressed in their most elegant suits and dresses having just completed the annual tweed run. It's a 12-mile bicycle ride across London where tweed-lovers unite upon their favourite steed; whether a Pashley or a Penny Farthing. Robert explained that this was his 3rd year, and he loves it so much that he also decided to marshal. Tweed jackets are a big part of his style; he is a civil engineer, but he likes to dress with an individual look. He was scouting through a vintage shop and discovered that tweeds were inexpensive, the rest is history! Robert regularly works with a tailor to design and rework the pieces. We love how he incorporated his heritage using Kente, a hand-woven African material that the tailor refashioned into a bowtie and pocket square. It's cross-continental refinement!

We spotted Luisa in Berlin. She's a self-confessed fashion victim in her free time and a medical student by day. Her friends call her Lui, and she told us that since she was a small girl, she was in contact with fashion on a daily basis. Fashion and the latest trends were the usual dinner table conversation with her family and friends; she loves how it can give you the power to be whoever you want and the possibility to be creative every day. Luisa loves how it excites the senses and is open to so many different interpretations. Coco Chanel said “The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” Luisa may call her self a fashion victim, but we think she's channelling Coco! @_lui_7

Jai'me was a vision in checks when we spotted him in London, and we weren't surprised to find out that he has written for various style publications such as Stylist and Times magazine. He is followed by the likes of Vogue, Telegraph style and even our very own 'Friend Of Traffique' Galih Richardson! Jai'me loves to look dapper in many a checked and brightly coloured suit, bringing some colour to London's streets. The city has a long history of tailoring, dating back to the 1800's but Jai'me lends the look a modern edge. It's hard to miss his inimitable style and in the words of Harry Winston - “People will stare. Make it worth their while.” @jaimelondonboy

We loved how Helena pulled together an eclectic mix of pieces when we spotted her in London. She's a fashion design student, born in Switzerland, raised in the U.S. and has Chinese heritage. Helena is now in London for her studies. She likes to mix new clothes and accessories with vintage garments, and that includes finding items from her Mum's wardrobe like this vintage Dior headscarf. Her Instagram reveals a playful side to her dress style and everyday life, and she's a big fan of the Burberry checks! Though Thomas Burberry started the company 183 years ago, Christopher Bailey 'reintroduced' those checks recently explaining that through the years the pattern has meant different things to different people. One thing is for sure; it will always be iconic. We love how Helena gives heritage pieces a modern edge. We would describe her wardrobe as ' iconic contemporary' we're sure she'll be pleased with that description! @_shelenary_

We just had to snap content creator and brand strategist Jumaine. He was wearing one of spring's standout looks in his plastic fantastic coat. He was on his way to a fundraiser in New York's Soho that day. A closer look at his Instagram revealed a man with exceptional personal style and a penchant for hats and beautiful interiors, all of which regularly feature in his Instagram posts. He explained that his fashion inspiration comes from living in Japan with a signature of ' keep it simple but polished'. He enjoys spending time in Soho but prefers Brooklyn for its culture and diversity. Jumaine's Instagram has another enduring theme, with messages of about positivity and authenticity; one of which stood out to us; 'have you ever wondered why most people tend to think the same, act the same, judge the same and just do about everything the same? I’m like where is the authenticity, the you, the me. Your own personality your own style your own being. To be honest, it’s so much more exciting when you are your own person. You will not fit in, but nothing sweeter than standing out.' We couldn't agree more Jumaine! @richie_rich_for_life

Maxim was dashing out of his workplace, Officine General on Lexington street to grab his favourite snack a Love Bar from Pret a Manger. He’s from Paris and has lived here for a year telling us that he moved here to learn English and to find new adventures after studying Luxury Fashion Marketing. Maxim found it an adjustment living in London at first but isn't sure about living in Paris anymore. I love the atmosphere here and the friendly people' he said. He told us, 'architecturally I like that things change more in London, Paris is more like a museum.' Maxim was wearing clothes from his clothes shop. We admired his checked coat, and he told us that they had just launched a womenswear line, Maxim we'll be taking a look, and now that we've featured you do we get a discount?! @whynot_maxim

We were struck by Elise's checked coat by Sinéquane on Rue Saint Guillaume in Paris. She explained that she’s doing an internship as a model maker with Ines de la Fressange the French model, aristocrat, style icon, fashion designer and perfumer who also happened to be Karl Lagerfeld's muse at Chanel and who walked the catwalk for Gaultier at age 51. What a role model, no pressure then?! Elise is learning from the best!

Francisca loves coffee, both in a cup and as shades of her wardrobe. When we chatted with her in Copenhagen, she told us that she chooses a colour according to her mood and the season and 'everything comes together, and I shape my style'. Today is a caffeine-inspired day then! In the summer Francisca likes to experiment with colour, but in winter she tends towards earthy colours. She works in Interior design at a hotel and is the Creative Director's assistant. We love her simple chic layering. They say your coffee speaks volumes about you so if we had to guess we'd say that Francisca's isn't frothy, more likely classic and sophisticated! @vonwerden

We love Ronald's style so much that we had a peek at his Instagram; he's a man who likes to express himself, especially with clothes and colour. When we chatted with him in Amsterdam, he explained that he worked for an energy company. We have a feeling that Ronald exudes a vibrancy not just in his career but in everything he does! On this occasion with his Weekday coat and green jumper, he was flying the colours of his homeland, Brazil. Francisco Costa said, 'Brazil is not what you see but what you feel.' We think Ronald's energy emanates through a little of both! @saintronald

Spotted on the streets of Paris, Madeline's natural style spoke volumes, from the Country Road jacket to the clever addition of her headscarf. The adage 'you can't judge a book by its cover' seems to apply here because Madeline's understated look isn't anything like her persona on Instagram. There, through her creative use of cosmetics, she takes on different personas. It seems she is always experimenting producing breathtaking makeup. Her Insta-intro reads 'Let no man steal your thyme'. We love her self-expression and individuality, she may enjoy changing her looks, but Madeline knows who she is! @moodygoss
