Here are some more street style images we shot for your viewing,
at London Fashion Week back in September 2021 for the upcoming
spring 2022 season.
It’s that time of the year again, the time when all you hear is everyone
mentioning and using that word. You know the one, the F word. FASHION.
Yes, it’s Fashion Week season, and on the grand carousel,
it is presently London Fashion Week. After pounding the streets,
and I mean ponding, you have to travel all over the place.
Why scatters events all over town when it makes way more sense
to have things localised, or centred like in all the other great cities.
Well, here are some of the offerings of style from those various locations.
As always, bought to you by Pat Lyttle of JSTREETSTYLE.
That way cool Vintage Fashion Fair is back. The one that is
usually at the Chelsea Town Hall. That beautiful building with the
ornate ceiling, walls and halls, was packed full of specialist vintage
dealers unleashing back into the world, the many visual delights
they’s been hoarding and staring at at home for 18 months.
But it was well worth the wait for both them and us the public.
Vintage delights indeed, and even more exciting antique ones.
After the buying spree, we ventured back outside to bring you
some of the style that we spotted on the street. Mr Galliano wasn’t,
rocking much style, but lets hope he was inspired by lots of it.
The lovely Florence Welsh was doing her usual floaty 70s floral
print Maxi dress groove. Lovely indeed she was.
But let's talk about the rest of you there.
Just look at the elegance and style emanating from this Chelsea woman.
Isn’t she amazing. The hat, the angle of it. The jacket and skirt, the gloves.
Those suede heels and that bag. What a way to start ones day. Thank you.
VINTAGE FAIRS ARE BACK
The Vintage Fashion Fair Scene in London got off to a great start
in early September. The first off the starting block, was the award winning
Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair.
This took place over the weekend of the 4th - 5th September,
and was the first Vintage fashion fair in 18 months.
Situated in its new long term home of the Grand Lodge, or Freemasons Hall,
in Covent Garden, the weekend special saw 50 specialist traders.
Some in Vintage designer handbags, some purely in YSL, some in just jewellery,
others into specific or general eras, of time and decades of style,
deliver quality slices of vintage style served up to a public, hungry for style
that last and has individuality to it. If it’s fast, it don’t last. Well known mantra.
After a gentle peruse of vintage delights for myself, spending spree not the intention,
I ventured out to see the punters. Some actually dressed up and got their groove on.
This is actually the norm when it comes to the vintage scene.
We put the effort back into dressing up, just like the good old days.
Here is a selection of images I shot over the weekend, of attendees,
arriving in style, for their first taster of vintage, in a very long while.
