A poor drunken attempt at a fashion hop. Well, someone had to I suppose. Sadly, I look more like a startled Zebra.
Shirt: Pretty Green
Hat: Laird Hatters
Scarf: Thomas Farthing
It’s been a long time since I have done a blog update (my apologies) and I realized that I completely forgot to do a little update about London Collections: Men SS16. I thought it would be a good idea to start with a couple of street style photographs from the escapades.
As some of you know, this year I spent 3 months doing an internship with a fashion course at a university in China and I returned to the UK the day before the LC:M festivities began which meant my wardrobe was a tad limited as I didn’t get chance to head home before the shows started. In transit back to the UK, one of my suits had got rather crumpled but luckily I had been blessed with the good fortune of having my first day’s attire kindly gifted to me by the Thomas Farthing London gang. (apart from the shoes) my whole ensemble was from the Thomas Farthing store and what a fun outfit to begin the week with! The inspiration was a Victorian Dandy with cravat, over-sized trilby and the leather stab-proof vest which was created by the Farthing front man, Adam Skyner based off an 1880’s design.
My outfit for the day was definitely noticed at LC:M and I think it was a nice fun way to kick off the shows for the week.
A big thank you to all the team at Thomas Farthing London who had me hooked up for the whole of LC:M SS16 with various head wear and accessories. If you’re out and about in Central London, I would strongly recommend checking out the store, they have such a beautiful collection of clothing and accessories for men and women. You can’t miss the giant Penny Farthing bicycle outside the show. 40 Museum Street, London.

London Collections: Men AW15 – Day 2
A nice little snap from Fashion Plus magazine who asked me to describe my style in one word… I opted for “Shitorial”. When asked why, I said that i’m a little bit sartorial, but kind of shit. Simple.
Jacket: Vivienne Westwood
Tie: Vivienne Westwood
Shoes: vintage – my granddads wedding shoes.
Collar Pin & Tie Pin – Peckham & Rye
A quick #throwback photo from LC:M SS15 after leaving the Topman Design show.
These photo was taken by the very talented Joseph Kent (Unlimited By JK).
I fancied splashing a bit of colour to the otherwise dreary day and torrential downpour that was September’s LFW.
From attending previous Fashion Weeks, i expected a bit more of a burst of colour, but the weather had definitely dampened a lot of spirits, Somerset House felt like a barren wasteland with the lack of people this season which was a touch unfortunate as there were some beautiful collections this year.
I was rather flattered to be shot by Joseph Kent (Unlimited by JK), this guy is a pro when it comes to Street-Style photography and I was pretty thrilled with my photo (after seeing so many unflattering pics from this season where I have frizzy windswept hair, mid conversation gurnings or the dreaded double chin, JK managed to cheer me up.)
I would definitely check out his blog if you want to see some beautiful Street-Style photography from London Fashion Week and other escapades.
The photo also appeared on the Daily Express online.
