Having a famous parent may not be easy but Tanestrran Lournard Chandran seems to have struck the right balance between living up to expectations and finding his own path in life with his dad, Dato’ Sri Bernard Chandran.
For style tips and practical lessons passed from father to son, Tatler turned to this fashionable father-and-son duo to discover how two different worlds can come together for the better.
What’s the best style lesson you learnt from your father?
Bernard Chandran (BC): I think the best lesson he ever taught me about style was to be comfortable with myself and not to be influenced by others. My father was a confident person and that influenced me. When I was younger, he allowed me to wear what I wanted and he would always support me rather than stop me.
Tanestrran Chandran (TC): The best style lesson I learnt from my father is to explore outside my comfort zone. My father inspired me to believe in my passion and not to follow the paved road. His undying love for what he does inspired me to do that in my own way.
