Friday

Take it back to the concrete streets

After that brief foray back to Fashion Week in the last post, I thought I'd bring it back east (with the help of a 90s hip hop reference, which I thought was fitting with the background.  I've been listening to a lot of the old stuff lately, definitely the genre at its peak...but I digress).  I shot this photo late in the evening after the Jones and Payne party - so for once the shoddy light isn't the fault of my questionable photography - but I couldn't miss it, it was love at first sight with that leather jacket.  Teamed with a floral playsuit and with a casual hairdo and plimsolls to top and tail the look, it's pretty much east London style at its best.  AND she said she'd seen my blog! That NEVER happens.  It made me happy.

  1. it's a pretty interesting jacket, can't say i've seen one with large eyelets in it before. nice change for a standard stud. speaking of hip hop, if you see any people inspired by fresh price you should snap them! i'd enjoy that

  10. AND she saw your blog! ; ) You're going to start having that happen a lot, you'll see.

    Love the look but I hate to admit it: sometimes I see it in South Ken, too. They're channelling East, of course.. have a lovely weekend. I'm really psyched for a street shoot date with you soon. xx
