On Fire In Shoreditch
Even amongst the hipsters of Shoreditch Ruben stood out, perhaps that's why our photographer Liam had already captured him a while back! 'Apart from the Kite glasses, today's look is all high street brands', he said. He knows how to work the look! He's originally from Martinique, we bumped into him a long way from home, but at least it was sunny - that day! He explained that he moved here because he wanted to see how fashion was working elsewhere. Undoubtedly Ruben's CV is varied; he's styled the likes of Madonna, worked on a collab with Chanel and Prada and by night he's a fire-breathing drag queen! He describes his style as versatile, flamboyant and spontaneous; everything we love at Traffique! Bernard Williams said, talent is a flame, genius is a fire. When it comes to style, Ruben certainly has a flare! @the.mxfit

Style At A Steal
We spotted Rosanna as she was walking down Rivington Street. She’s from Naples, Italy but she spends time between there and London because her son and daughter live here. Her main pastime is travelling and exploring, and she explained that she has an open mind to new places and experiences. The list of destinations is long from LA, NY and Amsterdam but she told us she loves London the most! Her style muse is 'Song Of Style' on Instagram and what Rosanna enjoys most is hunting down a bargain and visiting sample sales. She was pleased to tell us how many deals she was wearing, we could hardly believe that apart from the Monica Vinader bracelets Rosanna was dressed entirely in high street brands, and she did it so well! @rosannathequeen

Retro-Tronic
Dinnit is from Portugal; he’s been living in London for six years. We spotted him outside a pop-up shop on Brick Lane, but you can usually find him in a shop on Portobello called Ragyard that creates one-off individually handcrafted pieces allowing people to express their personalities. We love that! It also sells lots of vintage styles, which Dinnit likes. He is one of the designers who customise the authentic individual clothes, and the earring that he wore in the picture is made from a piece of a bag. When he is not working with clothes, he works as a musician and loves to write and sing many different genres but at the moment he describes his style as popular-tronic. It sounds like his music is customised too - we are intrigued to hear! Dinnit likes to mix up looks and not follow trends. His style inspiration is 80’s/90’s and a mix of contemporary pieces, so we wonder if he describes his style as Retro-tronic! @dinnitdivo
