I received a lot of attention after my previous OOTD post went live so I decided to add to it with some additional images Joey London and I shot on location in Shoreditch. Just a stones throw away from Princelet Street is Christ Church Spitalfields, an Anglican church built between 1714 and 1729 to a design by Nicholas Hawksmoor. It’s one of the first buildings in London I hold close to my heart for personal reasons so I decided to give it a feature:

Christ Church Spitalfields

An Act of Parliament in 1711 established the Commission for Building Fifty New Churches to serve London’s new settlements and Christ Church Spitalfields was the first to be built.

The Commissioners for the new churches included Christopher Wren (the architect behind the famous St Pauls Cathedral), Thomas Archer and John Vanbrugh appointed two surveyors, one of whom was Nicholas Hawksmoor. Only twelve of the planned fifty churches were built, of which six were designed by Hawksmoor.

Still wearing my perfectly fitting specs from Bailey Nelson, Joey and I decided to jump around and let loose our inner teenagers while capturing the moment with the aforementioned Sigma lens.

Having owned the glasses for over a month now I can safely say that they have not let me down, or left my side for that matter.

It’s actually quite rare to find a durable pair that you can safely rely on day in, day out. Make sure to check out their latest designs and see if any tickle your fancy
