Let’s not forget the French men, especially the young men, they all dress just as well as the girls. Their sense of style and fashion highly developed, sartorial and always spot on. I saw boys as young as 14 or 15 dressed immaculately and rarely if ever I saw a male sloppily dressed, I guess that is simply a French thing.

Funny how only now I noticed that the elements of both outfits are almost identical, white tshirt with print, cardigan, shorts and casual shoes. Well, this one has got to be a staple summer outfit in any man’s wardrobe, big thumbs up from me!

Today, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I take you to a very different world, but it is still in London! A world where I only get glimpses of, today you get a few glimpses too. Knightsbridge is one of the most expensive places in London, according to Wikipedia, 14 out of the 200 most expensive streets in Britain are in Knightsbridge. On street car parking spaces sell for £300,000 on a 94 year lease… Notable residents include: Nigella Lawson, Tom Ford, Hugh Grant, Sean Connery alongside many other aristocrats, royalties, socialites, writers, presenters and models. You get the idea.

There’s a strip of high fashion shops here, Chanel, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, you name it, you got it. And it was here that I did a little bit of street style hunting.

Favourite fashion label: None
Favourite clothing shop: Knightsbridge

Maria told me she was a model in the 50s, the height of the House of Chanel, dare I say, a time when sportswear isn’t what it is today. Maria has such elegance and grace, I’d love to have a head of silver hair like hers when I’m old.

An almost all black outfit which makes all the textures stand out, the bright pop of the red Hermes bag is very nice arm candy.

Autumn was definitely in the air today, it was cloudy, gloomy and a little cold. It was a good reminder that I’m bored of wearing tshirts and I’d like to start layering clothes. Speaking of layering, this gentleman’s got some great layering going on, the belt and the shoes match! The shoes are so shiny and immaculate, I can never keep my shoes in such good condition, the toes always get scuffed 2 weeks in, I think I just like to kick things :D
