JAPANESE STREET STYLE HITS CAMDEN SPRING 2018

So it is now 24 hours after the big wedding of HRH Prince Harry 
and his actress wife, Megan Markle, both now to be called the 
Duke and Duchess of Sussex. What spectacular wedding and a great day. 
It had everything one could dream of. Spectacle, fantasy, romance, 
beautiful music, and amazing weather, and the newly weds showed the world 
just how much they clearly were IN LOVE.

Japanese Street Style hits Camden

So in the early hours we were scrolling through Instagram, and spotted 
the lovely Kiriko Takemura, better known as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
Cute Superstar of Japanese J-pop, and ambassador of Kawaii fashion, 
was in London to perform at legendary Koko in cool, trendy and very 
colourful Camden. One could say, London’s very own Harajuku.

Sadly her post said the gig was “SOLD OUT”, so sadly we cannot 
share with you any pictures of the super cool and most pretty little one. 
You’ll just have to buy a copy of JAPANESE STREET STYLE
and have a look at page 85, to see the pictures I shot of the lovely woman 
spotted on Omotesando in Harajuku looking way cool and super stylish, 
way before she became the superstar that she is today.

What we did manage to get you was a taster of the many cool and funky 
people, dressed in kawaii style or at the very least, fashionably touched 
by Japanese style, and we believe looked great. See for yourselves. 
We’re sure you’ll all agree.
Inspired hero worship and cool J Street Style 
 
This is Effi from West London. She wears a playsuit by Cyberdog, 
a long sleeve rainbow coloured shirt by Japanese brand Galaxy, with 
cool socks from Takeshita Dori in harajuku, Tokyo and shoes from eBay.
 This is fashion model Caroline from China. She wears a Sweet Lolita dress 
by Angelic Pretty.
  This is Karen Nagato from London. Dressed all in black in Gothic Lolita style.
She wears a dress by Atelier Pierrot, a bag by Irregular Choice and Mon Lily 
sweet doll shoes by Honey Cherry.
 This is Jibby from London. She wears a pink vintage baby doll dress, 
with ankle boots from TK Max,

VINTAGE MADNESS - SPRING 2018

Vintage fashion is one of our passions here as you well know.
It has been some time since we’ve made a post here, and due to the endless 
dark days, grey skies, constant rain, you can probably understand and see why.
So let's kick off the new spring season with a few of the super cool 
people we've come across on London's streets on our frequent journeys 
to bring too you, our long term commitment to style and fashion that inspires. 

 How cool and cute is this young beauty with a quirky Japanese style.
This is jewellery designer Yu Chen better known as YuYu
She wears a denim coat and dress from Zara, with adorably cute and fluffy 
sandals from Earth Music and Ecology.  
 Fluffy times
This is bespoke jewellery designer Biwa Wong from Hong Kong, 
spotted in Soho, London. She wears tartan print mesh slingback kitten heels, 
and socks, both from Fendi SS 2018 collection, a bag by Gucci
a vintage tartan print kilt and shirt from Japanese store in Tokyo called Loveless

You can find some of Biwa's amazing work here  
 Let's get a closer look at those way cool looking Fendi slingbacks. 
We constantly get told by the elite and revered of the fashion establishment, 
that one of the most holy of sins or crimes, is the wearing of socks with heels. 
 But when this partnership looks this good, and the Foot Candy is this tasty, 
How is one to resist falling for their charms.
Just go out and break all the rules. After all, that's what they're there for. 
 How else do you get to put your stamp of individuality on things, and lets all 
agree, that's one of the key reason's we've all fallen in love with vintage fashion 
so much over the last few years on a global scale. It's the perfect platform 
of self expression to break those pesky rules, and to create new ones. 
One's of your own making and style.

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW 2018 - Part 2

Here is the long awaited second part post from LFW AW 2018.
We'll start of the preceedings with a follow up shoe file. 
Another hit of all the exciting foot candy on show during Fashion Week. 
Fine feathered friends 
White patent leather Elsa 95 Pumps by Attico
 Here are those Kendall pearly metallic spiked block heel sandals by Gucci.
Worn here with socks. 
Ah yes! That eternal argument. Socks with heels. We can can hear some of you
 in rage just over the thought of such a thing, others shaking your head, 
saying absolutely not among yourselves. We see  you all. We hear those 
thoughts loud and clear. The huge trend for funky and cute socks with heels 
that swept Japan back in the late 90s early 2000s made quite an impact 
and influence on the mainstream world of High end fashion, as it always does. 
Miuccia Prada was a keen watcher, and her Spring 2008 reflected it. 
Long socks with those beautiful secret garden flower heels. Think you can 
quite guess, here at JSTREETSTYLE, we’re on the side of socks with heels. 
Ardent campaigners for the cause we’d like to say.
 
Shimmering shiny silver glitter plateau ankle boots from Gucci.
Here is that amazing fun, crazy full of energy fashion buyer, DB David bag 
brand ambassador and influencer, Harper Silin
In the image above she wears a slogan t-shirt with a vintage jacket, 
belt and boots by Zara, with a stunning bespoke hand made skirt 
by Adam From Fashion of And Studio London. 
Finally ending this post with an image of the lovely Irene Kim
Here we see the cool South Korean blogger and model wearing Mulberry.

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW 2018 - Part 1

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW 2018

It is once once again that time of the year. The collective mass of fashion 
industry and passionista fashionistas all gather on mass, to celebrate or 
pay homage to the latest and greatest visions from the catwalk, by the 
good, the bad and the terribly provocative and naughty. Yes its the latest 
instalment from the global Fashion Week season, London Fashion Week.

A weekend of fantastic weather brought us the start of the big shows 
and names of British fashion.
Then Monday came along and put the dampeners on the entire event. 
Forget the limos and luxury VIP cars to transport said guests from 
show to show, what should have been provided was cohoes and water wear.

That said the shows managed to take place, gifting insight to all of 
the delights of the season to come, or if you’re into the new fast
fashion and have the need to see no, buy now, your tastebuds for 
fashion, must surely be flowing with eager excitement and anticipation.

From the great outdoors and on the land of street style, there were 
several and obvious trends that could easily be spotted. 
We will try to show you some of them over the next few posts.
You can expect to see lots of pretty footwear and foot candy, 
with bold vivid colour sock boots, novel statement piece lighter heels 
from Vetements to name a few. 

So let's start off the proceedings with a few postings, of some 
of the many images we worked ever so hard, to bring directly to you.
We do hope you'll enjoy this journey through the sights of the style,
as captured on London's streets, during London Fashion Week. 
 Ooh Betty! Why oh why are you so pretty? 
The lovely model, style icon, influencer and co founder of Moy Atelier 
 Betty Bachz seen here in various beuty and style guises. 
 Even more Chinese beauty. Oh how we do like to spoil you. 
Here is that name everyone's talking about. That fun, crazy full of energy 
fashion buyer, brand ambassador and influencer, Harper Silin
In the image above she wears a slogan t-shirt with a vintage jacket and 
belt by Zara, with a stunning bespoke hand made skirt by Adam From Fashion 
of And Studio London. 
 Above is an image of Harper wearing a vintage 1980s knitted dress, 
with sequin details from the vintage fashion collection of Stylist Pat Lyttle  
 This is Kerry from China. She wears a coat from Robert Woods,
a shirt by JW Anderson, trousers by Shushu Tong, with Prada
slingback kitten heels.
 

Here is The SHOES
 Here's some fetching and delightfully exciting foot candy, from Malone Souliers
Their Maureen Double Band Mule was spotted frequently around London. 
 Here was another popular shoe. This time a variation of the hugely cool 
lighter heel from Vetements.

LONDON FASHION WEEK MENS AW 2018 PART 1

 
It’s a brand-new year. Happy 2018 everyone. 

Let us wish you all much success, good fortune and contentment for the year ahead.

To start things off, we recently had the first event of fashion week circuit,
The LFWM London Fashion Week Mens, formally LCM London Collections Mens.

Shows were received well, but you’re here reading this because its the action 
on the street that excites and interests us all. The best catwalk in town is the 
most accessible and influential one. There was a scene clearly in mind 
with a woman wearing those oh so very cool novelty or statement ankle boots. 
You know the ones. We’re talking about those sock style lighter heels by Vetements. 
It took some time to get the images we wanted, as there were strange random 
dance movements going on with them. After having to politely ask to please 
cease and desist from the strange dance steps for a moment, 
it became apparent  when told, it was because of the harsh cold, 
and it was the best way to keep warm. In fact sock style ankle boots 
were everywhere to be seen.  

Here is the first post of the new year, and our first offering from the 
Street Style captured during LFWM London Fashion Week Mens.

BOOT CAMP
A selection of sock shoes or ankle boots, with lighter heels by Vetements
 More cool heels. This time, cup heel ankle boots by Maison Margiela
This is Kelly Wong from China. She wears a coat by Ryan Lo
a small Louis Vuitton bag and a large Baggu bag. 
 This is the super stylish Chinese fashion buyer Harper Silin
She wears a River Island X Blood Brother orange hoodie, a denim skirt 
with sock style ankle boots.
 Finally we end this post with the lovely Sae from Nara, Japan. 
She wears red patent ankle boots from Zara, Topshop trousers 
and a vintage fur jacket.
