Esquire editor Jeremy Langmead looking his sartorial best, having just completed an interview with a well known american hiphop artiste for the gentleman’s mag. He had worn a blazer by his bespoke tailor Tom Sweeney for the occasion. Jeremy manages to effortlessly pull-off this gentleman’s summer classic of navy and white with those fabulous two-tone shoes, which are from Rupert Sanderson’s exclusive new men’s range.
Kate was shopping with friends on Hampstead Hill. As I took these shots there was a special luminescent quality to the light created by the sky suddenly turning grey and the heavens opening with a torrential downpour. Kate’s pale skin against the shades of her grey dress with maroon stripes, from Topshop, subtly blended together with the background and eerie light to create a haunting effect. Kate was also wearing a Butler and Wilson bag.
Summer is here and the heat has been turned up, and wimbledon is upon us. Zoe certainly knows how to dress in the heat – looking, feeling and staying cool. The white cotton dress she bought in Sardinia, the frappachino accessory - Starbucks. She is nicely matched with the silver Louis Vuitton bag and shoes.
Freelance stylist Gretchen is originally from San Francisco and she told me she was 85 years old – it must be that Pacific Ocean air that keeps her looking so young! She loves London and her Britsh Pashley bike – upon which she was about to ride off into the sunset. I caught up with Gretchen outside an event held at Oxygen – a boutique run by Joanna Nicola, which is also part gallery space.
Art student Jessica was off for a meal with her folks when I ran into her near Tottenham Court Road. She is wearing lace leggins from Topshop, the shirt she found at a festival, and her leather jacket came from Camden Market. I love the muted tones in this composition which I snapped in the fading evening light.
This is Pharelle, he is studying performing arts and wants to be an actor. I spotted him on his way home from college on the Portabello Road. His colourful Harlequin hoodie is by Meka, and his white tee, Duffer, with pink shorts by Zara.
The name Harlequin carries several meanings. He is traditionally a male comedic, pantomime character, but dates back to 16th century France – as the legendary leader of a troop of demon horsemen. Now there’s a strong lead for Pharelle to play.
