From polished designer high fashion to my crazy space outfit, now I bring you to the other side of the town, Camden Town. I only very recently discovered it’s about 25 minutes walk from my place, why the hell didn’t I go earlier. Camden is crazy, full on, energetic and just plain awesome. It’s the ultimate place for clashes of fashion, from gothic lolitas, to punks, rockabillies, indie kids, high street kids, vintage gals, hip hop boys, it really shouts “youth of Britain today” to me.

Today I went for a stroll again armed with my camera!

Camden market is a huge market that interconnects many sections, with indoor and outdoor space, they sell anything from vintage wear to designer rip offs and everything in between. I found myself a nice little something for £6! More about that another time. Cyberdog is crazy! Rave music turned up loud pumping straight through me, those fluro detective lights that showcase the special ink on their tshirts, robotic mannequins line the walls. Some of the womens clothes were very avant garde, I can see how a piece or 2 combined with high street stuff can become a very edgy and cool outfit. Now why didn’t I go there before my space themed party, oh well, at least I know now for next time.

So here are 2 quick shots from today.

Summer still - Paddington

Although it’s already mid March, but looking at these lovely girls, it still does look and feel like summer here. Indeed the last few days have been not just warm, but hot, with sudden summer rain storms that makes the street a gorgeous shiny gleam and is gone as sudden as it came.

I love those gladiators! It’s true what Garance said, that the footwear these seasons are very S&M, but surely a little pain won’t hurt for something that looks so good. I really like how the girl paired it with a simple white dress with an innocent feel, great juxtaposition.

That crop jacket! I’ve been looking for one since the beginning of summer, but I guess I haven’t been looking in the right places. And that wonderful colourful and checkered skirt! It’s so summer. So enjoy it while it lasts folks.

With the brief of cool, creative, stylish and personal looks, I went style scouting for H&M magazine. Alas the project fell through, they ran out of space for my photos. However it’s still fantastic to have to recognition from a big fashion player like H&M, hopefully I will get my photos in the mag next time. I have many great looks to share, I’ve been itching to upload them. There are lots of them, so I won’t flood you, I’ll feed them through a little at a time.

The following pics were taken outside the Fringe bar market, I picked out a few well dressed stall holders, it was fantastic! Part of H&M’s brief was to ask the people a few questions, that I really enjoyed, I may just keep on doing it. The questions opened up a dialogue and I felt more of a connection with my subjects, I think they felt the same way too.

Though this look is quite popular this summer, the singlet with short skirt or shorts, but Nikki made it her own. I love the head scarf and the tattoos hints at her personality and adds to the look.
