I didn’t get to do the usual mini interview with this elegant and lovely lady as she was in a hurry.

All the elements come together in this outfit, it is timeless yet youthful at the same time. The trench and the clogs are both very current elements, yet on her they are absolutely effortless. The hat adds a hint of eccentricity. Love it!

Dapper - Oxford St

Oh these English people, they are just so bloody good at doing this Englishness. The men, especially the men, most dress very well, from the executives in Mayfair to the young ones walking around high street, this dapperness seems to be in their DNA. The mismatching, the tailored look, I have to salute you male Londoners! It’s great to see young men also putting in effort, taking from the old and translating it all into their own style.

Name: Toby

Describe your style: Rockabilly, English gentlemen, dapper.
Favourite fashion label: Fred Perry & Burberry
Favourite clothing shop: Charity shops.

Toby here is an extremely lucky young fellow. He told me he gets to raid his father and grand father’s wardrobes, he sometimes has to get things taken in a little, but they most fit perfect. I’m so jealous!

How was everyone’s weekend? Here in London, it’s bank holiday long weekend. I think I might take a day trip to Brighton tomorrow, let’s hope the sun will favour my little trip.

This might be news to some of you, but I am in London and I will be here for 6 months, then New York for 3 months and then back home to Sydney. So xssat will be bringing you the latest street styles from all around Europe for the next few months!

Yesterday was my first day in London, I knew I should try to stay up for most of the day and adjust my body clock so I went down to Brick Lane market. What a mish mash of characters and it was teeming with young people all dressed to be seen.

What I saw, I thought were all quintessentially British. From the classic coat reinterpreted by this guy above, all the elements of the outfit are very retro, the ray bans, the white sneakers and the pants, but together the look is utterly modern and very British.

Look at the girl above, her Madonna-esque outfit is fantastic, she reminds me so much of Vivienne Westwood. That essence of rebellious British youth expressed through fashion.
