Grace was hanging out with her friends in London’s Docklands. She had been to the ‘Clothes Show Live’ and was wearing this faux fur, which was keeping off the slight breeze coming from the River Thames. Grace told me she bought the vintage dress in Camden Lock market.

Strike A Light

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Aurelie works “in finance” I really liked the way she worked the pinstripe shorts, with those fabulous strappy leggins – which she found in a shop in Camden Town (makes those Primark shoes look – mmmm – really classy).

Jenny studies fashion and dance and is part of the emerging London Nu disco scene.  She was wearing a pair of Jeggings from Topshop – , I am reliably informed they are a cross between jeans and leggings. When I photographed her she was chilling out on the phone to a friend –  in the […]

Adam was sitting outside the ‘Goodhood’ boutique in Hoxton when I spotted him sporting some classic vintage Ralph Lauren chinos, and a white flannel jacket that belonged to his Grandfather. He also had a really cool ‘one point folded square’ in his pocket.  Adam told me of his plans to open a vintage store on […]

Cupcakes

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

This lovely lady, who I think is called kim – please tell me if I am wrong- makes cupcakes. I loved the association with that old term of endearment ‘Cupcakes’ and the heart shapes in the window.

I caught up with 18 year old Martina as she was passing through Dalston Junction looking for a bus. I thought she had really edgy – teen-look..

London – Cool Vernacular

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

Here is Chloe, she’s shopping with a girlfriend in Camden. Simple and coordinated and right on the button with current trends, I love that oversize clutch bag with the faux crocodilian from ASOS and that cute boyfriend cut jacket from Dorothy Perkins – borrowed from her friend. I think there is a fine line between […]

Even though she was running late, Ellen graciously gave up her time for a couple of minutes, offering me a brief window to capture her ‘look’. The vintage dress she wears was bought in […]

London - Nostalgia

London – Nostalgia

Monday, May 18th, 2009

I love the movies of the late Russian film director Andre Tarkovsky – Nostalgia and Mirror, being my favourites. There is something nostalgic about Charlottes look that reminds me of a Tarkovsky heroine, in her floaty pink Siren dress from Topshop and her sweater from New York.

Don’t Look Back

Amanda was late for work when I saw her dashing up the road – I probably didn’t help her much by taking a few shots, but I liked her eye catching combo of Topshop shorts and tights, with her Primark jacket and gorgeous chunky bag.
