Moving my blog to

Hello everyone! This is it. At least for Fashion Bits And Bobs. Don't worry, my blogging career isn't quite over yet. It's actually quite the opposite. By moving my blog to and renaming it to simply Pascal Grob, I hope to be able to focus on content that really matters to me and pick up a regular pace of blogging again. I hope that everyone who has followed me up until this point keeps checking out my new address as well: I would be glad if you subscribed to my new blog or checked it out every now and then. I will also stop checking my current mail address soon. You can find my new contact details on the new blog!

All-Black Is The New Black

I am very into black clothes and all-black outfits at the moment. I like that it feels so simple and almost like an uniform because it is reduced to just one single non-colour – hence the cut, shape and texture of the fabric start playing an even bigger role. At least half of my wardrobe consists of mainly black clothes now. I am trying to get more into blogging-mode again as I have been neglecting this very blog for far too long and only kept updating my Instagram. I was even thinking about giving up on blogging for good. Here is a selection of black clothes to start with.

Once More The River Will Flow

Finally, I got the chance on working together with my dear close friend Andrea Serrano of vintage clothing store Kimandra. She was able to recently acquire a big collection of vintage clothing from the 70s to late 90s in extraordinary quality from various brands such as Céline, Fendi, Gucci as well as small manufacturers only working with the best fabrics possible. It was the perfect moment to get together and shoot an editorial with another mutual friend of ours, Sara Gasser, to show some of those garments. A small crop of the whole collection will go online at Kimandra available for purchase in a few days along the lookbook pictures and prices. There will be also a special sale in Zurich on April 21/22. For more of my photos, check out my new portfolio website.

The In Crowd

Photographs by Tyrone Lebon and styling by Sara Moonves

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I saw this editorial for T Magazine a few months ago and recently came across it again on the blog from AS/H Magazine (which is quite lovely and you should all have a look here). I am totally in love with the styling. The combination with the sneakers and those platform shoes is brilliant. Good mix of street and luxe. I also like the way it is photographed.

Hello, Canon EOS M!

I was given a Canon EOS M recently and I have carried it around my neck everywhere I went for the past couple weeks. I totally felt like an Asian tourist visiting Europe for the first time. The Canon EOS M is fairly new and it combines the big sensor, image quality and interchangeable lens system of a DSLR with the size of a small compact camera. The result is a perfect everyday camera that you will bring everywhere you go. I would love to bring my Canon EOS 5D with me but it is simply too bulky and heavy for that, so I was happy when I heard about the EOS M. Combined with the 22mm lens (equivalent to 35mm full frame) it is a really compact combo and gives me the same field of view as my Yashica T4. You have to see the camera in person to see how small it actually is. There is also an adapter that allows me to use my Canon EF lenses with the EOS M. If you read reviews about the EOS M on the internet, you will see that a lot of people are complaining about the slow autofocus. I personally think the autofocus is fast enough (obviously depends on your photography style) but it's true that you probably can't capture any fast moving object. The handling is pretty straight forward and easy with people in mind wanting to upgrade from a compact camera but there are all the manual mode and settings too you know from your DSLR to appeal to professionals as well. The touchscreen works like a charm much to my surprise. I will let the pictures below speak for themselves and keep an eye on my photo blog too as I will publish more photos there over the next couple days.

Bits And Bobs #73

Sweater by A.P.C., Jeans & Hat by Acne, Jacket by A.P.C. x Carhartt

At long last I made a new outfit entry. A lot of things have happened since my previous outfit entry and I don't know where to begin. First and foremost I finally got my own studio, where I can work and take photographs in front of the plain white wall or any background I want to put up. It will help me take outfit entries more often and quicker as I am in the studio almost every day and I don't have to deal with daylight and weather anymore. The few of you who are following me on Instagram have seen that I have been given a Canon EOS M. I started putting my first shots on my Visual Diary and I also took both these pictures with my new little camera and the included external flash. I am really impressed by the image quality and the compact size but more on that later as I will dedicate my next blog entry to the EOS M and the pictures I have taken so far with it. This was my outfit today. The temperature dropped below 0°C and this jacket is keeping me very warm. I paired the outfit with the shoes below.
