Happy 2016 everyone! January in London means the start of fashion season so in-between my work with UnsignedGRP and running around LCM taking street style shots for Fucking Young Mag, I managed to take some OOTD shots with my boy Joey London using his new camera. I gotta say the Sigma lens is a work of art, perfect for action snaps and the quality of the images is simply pristine. Watch this space 🙂
Listen While You Read
The location for the shoot was Princelet Street, one of the oldest streets in London. It actually makes you feel like you’re walking through a piece of history with townhouses dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. As a lover of architecture you can’t help but look up and admire the diversity of it all.
The Museum of Immigration (a Grade II listed building) is also located on Princelet Street and tells the story of Jewish immigrants who fled persecution back home in France and, like many different nationalities to follow them, settled as immigrants in Spitalfields.
Since my eyesight is slowly catching up to all those late nights reading sci-fi books, Bailey Nelson were the first point of call for a new pair of specs. With stores all over London and a complementary eye test, Bailey Nelson were great at guiding me through their process and within a few days I received a text message telling me that my new glasses were ready to collect.
I paired up the glasses with my trusty Zara trenchie which I haven’t had a chance to wear since my trip to Venice, some new kicks from Converse and a jumper from the new kid on the scene – Old Harry Knitwear. The jumper kept me warm and cosy as the weather in London at the moment is unfriendly to say the least and it’s classic look and feel is something that many high street brands will find hard to replicate.
In terms of accessories my trusty Marshall Headphones are still doing their job a year down the line and the backpack from Moleskine is as nice to touch as it is to look at. It’s also designed specifically for digital devices so if like me you like to carry your cameras and laptops everywhere this purchase should be a no brainer. The sleek Ice City Leyton watch was ordered from Ice Watch and did not let me down once during LCM. It’s neat brown design was a perfect accompaniment to the entire outfit.
