Strolling around Marrakech, making new memories, and having the biggest cultural shock we’ve ever had. From the language, to the food, to the customs, to walking down the street, everything felt very different. All eyes were on us, especially when one of us has purple-ish pink hair.
We were in Marrakech during July, which has extremely hot weather. We would walk down the street with the sun beating down on us with 116°F - it was insane! But, we would stop by the cart #54 where our friends would make the BEST orange juice anyone could dream of drinking for only a few cents. With juice in hand, we were always ready to head into the market place and haggle our way to trinkets. Ahhh, it was awesome!
One thing we would recommend is staying at the lovely Riad & Spa Bahia Salam. It was one of our favorite places to stay while visiting. Not only was it extremely close to everything, but the staff there was on point. The most welcoming people you’d could come across.
Morocco, we got off to a bumpy start, but we got caught in your spell and fell in love by your charm. Sure it can be a bit challenging, but it’s really worth the adventure. We cannot wait to go back!
We are planning on doing something we never did here in New York City, be tourists. We walked around Times Square a bit and noticed we haven't gone around to see all that this city has to offer and it would be a great opportunity to take some more photos. May be the project we take on for this summer of 2018.
Hey guys! Bryan & Jessie Trindade here. It’s been a long time coming, but we wanted to officially announce that Anchored Apparel will no longer function.
We wanted to apologize for going on a hiatus for over a year. Long story short, on April 2016 something tragic happened in our lives, the apartment we lived in and held our entire Anchored stock caught on fire, and we lost it all. From photos, to money, to furniture, to equipment, to mementos. And in that moment, it just felt like nothing else was achievable. We went through a lot of painful moments, but we had God looking over us and we were always by each other sides. Fast forward to now, a little more than a year later, and after months of talking, praying, dreaming, and scheming, we have decided to close out this chapter of our lives and move forward for whatever may come next.
We still aren’t sure of what the future holds, but we are ready for it. With all that said, we wanted to thank you all for the journey. It’s been a HUGE pleasure getting to meet many of you in person. All the exchanges in person and online have made this experience one in a lifetime. From the connections we made with you all, it helped shape the brand’s message and us as a couple doing life in this crazy world of ours. It’s insane to think of how something so small got to impact so many. Thanks to all of you!
The website will be up for a few more months, but we will transition it more into our lifestyle blog and photography. Where you get to see more of us, real and raw. But keep an eye open as we may sell a shirt here or there online. We don’t plan on closing this Anchored Instagram page just yet, but if you’d like to follow along what we are currently doing and what we plan on doing, follow our personal pages: @bryantrindade and @jessctrindade
Again, thanks y’all!
We love you xx

This past weekend Jessie and I got to check out A/D/O's beautiful art installation ‘Spirit Of The City’ over in Brooklyn. It’s these huge mirrored golden columns that keep rotating as you walk through and see beautiful reflections all around constantly changing the environment you see. Worth checking out!
