FASHIONABLY VINTAGE LONDON

Are you disinterested with designer brand labels or what's on the racks and shelves
on the high street in the mega brand stores? You're not alone. In fact, chances are
you are part of the growing legion of men and women globally flocking to London to
scour its streets for precious gems in the form of a unique and tiny shop with a soul
and personality or something special that calls to you from within one of London's
many Vintage Fashion Fairs. Something that says you are the individual you are.
Stop dressing like you're mass produced and be who you are and how you feel.
 
Go on. Dress like it.

So just for you we grabbed a camera and set off in search of some of the many people
disheartened with high street, freeing their heart and soul with individuality and a little
help from some cool looking vintage fashion.

LONDON COLLECTIONS MEN SS 2015 PART 2

Hi everyone. We thought we'd share some more of the street style images 
captured during the first day of London Collections Men over the weekend.

Who says a well heeled women is hard to find these days?



This is blogger Miss Sicily. we see her wearing a graphic print suit by Zara and 
super high heeled sandals and face bag both by Prada.


This bundle of monochrome yumminess is Katherine Oon
Editor of OnFeature seen wearing skirt from Topshop with her shirt, tie and 
jacket from Izzue IT in Hong Kong. Now we tried hard to get her to part with 
those oh so pretty ankle boots by Nicolas Kirkwood, some of you have been 
emailing me, I really tried OK but there was no way we could get to keep 
them so you can't have them.



We just love this bag. It's by the master of all things detailed, Azzedine Alaia.


This is Yu Masui. A writter, blogger, journalist, fashion fan, your classic cool 
Japanese guy with a unique sense of style. Here we see him wearing studded 
sandals by Christian Louboutin and a possible jumpsuit of Astrid Anderson type 
fabric.

LONDON COLLECTIONS MEN SS 2015

Menswear is something of a topic that many if not most have an opinion on.
For many years all sides of the fashion industry from designers to retailers shunned
menswear fobing off the public with a tiny corner of a window display or shop floor
with a handful of items that looked like they were decades old and they probably were.
That's all changed now. London Collections Men has injected the much needed
excitement and enthusiasm both the industry and public needed. With a rebranding from
the once previous Menswear Fashion Week and super brands showcasing as well
as hot UK brands such as Dent de Man with its beautifully tailored, graphic prints
putting to shame the notion that menswear is boring. Finally we can proudly say it no longer is.

Though we did not attend the shows on the first day of the London wide event, 
we grabbed a camera and decided to snapped away in the hope to bring to you 
the true fashion action. All that lovely style from the best catwalk that is right here 
on London's streets. Here are some of the many images of style maidens and dapper 
gents in their fineries just for you.
