STREET STYLE AT CLERKENWELL VINTAGE FASHION FAIR

Can you believe it is October now. Can you believe it? Seems like only
a few months ago it was the start of the year, and a terrible nightmare
scenario we could have never imagined. Now hopefully behind us,
and moving forward, obviously faster than I imagined. October already.
A new year in 3 months. I am very much looking forward to the new year,
hopefully with some good news for once. This weekend was the second
Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair in the last 18 months or so.

It was foot to be back at the amazing Grand Lodge or Freemasons Hall,
as it is better known.
A stunning building outside and especially inside.
After a few essential purchases and investments in new work tools,
I stepped outside to do what I enjoy, people watching in the form of Street Style.
Observing and documenting the stylish individuals that attend the vintage fair.
Here in the UK people frequently dress up for the occasion.

So here are some of the folks and their style that attended
Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair,
on Sunday October 3rd 2021.

STREET STYLE AT LONDON FASHION WEEK SEPT 2021

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



Aren't they the cutest. These cuties actually belong to Susie Bubble
Aren't they cool. 
Stylist Adam Chi Lung Chan and Tatler Asia Fashion Director, Rosie Lai
The perfect mix of cuteness, elegance and style. Isn't she wonderful. 
Elie Inoue. A Journalist from Elle Japan, WWD, wearing a jacket by 
Akira Naka, a dress is Lemaire, those cool Tabi boots we all love 
from Maison Margiela, and her bag is from from her clearly very 
stylish grandma.

FROCK ME! IT'S STREET STYLE


FROCK ME! 


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.


Just look at this woman too. This is the lovely Nikki Redcliffe. Both women
 are always with out fail, impeccable at all times with sumptuous style.
Model agencies! Why are you not signing up these two icons for
ad campaigns and catwalk shows ?
A young women dresses in traditional Chinese Hanfu style, currently
hugely popular among your Chinese right now. Fashion history in action
This is Sansa Wen from China. She wears a little brown jacket by
Letqstudio, with denim jeans, a bag by Louis Vuitton, shoes
by Roger Vivier, with earrings by Chanel
Here are two of our favourite old souls. The ever stylish Mick and Shion.
How about a splash of colour? Ready? Here you go. Exciting isn't she

A fun and crazy time was had by all. Especially her, that one in the middle.
Yes you, Cinne Wan in the red jacket by Gucci, vintage headscarf, trousers
by Jaeger, leather handbag and enjoying yourself that bit more than everyone

CLERKENWELL VINTAGE WEEKEND SPECIAL SEPTEMBER 2021

 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.

Back view of a Japanese bomber jacker, called a Sukujan. 
These vintage treasures are highly sought after and the best 
are usually from the 1940s -70s. This one was worn by a young woman. 
She picked this up on her first trip to Japan. A prized possession
See the world in different shadesof colour. And while you're at it, 
why not throw in a well designed vintage hat too.
Seeing red from head to toe, especialy in that beautiful vintage Kimono
Two Chinese vintage fashion fans. 
On the left is photography student Xinyu Huang from Chongqing, China. 
She wears a green qipao or cheongsam from Taobao, a bag by 
Hiddennotes and white boots from Zara. 
 
On the right is art student Audrey Ruorong from Hangzhou, China. 
She wears a white velvet dress from Taobao, a Tippet from 
Clerkenwell Vintage Fair, sandals from Zara and a necklace, 
a Taoist Amulet from China.
Saving the best for last, the lovely Shion Oshikawa from Japan. 
A familiar face over the many years, seen here in a in vintage jumpsuit, 
and one of her many signature vintage hats.

STREET STYLE AUGUST 2021

Not an overly abundant number of images, nor number of events and people
to photograph this summer. We’re always talking about the weather aren’t we? 

That’s what we Brits are known for I guess. Well, summer is almost over,
and if one can believe the shock of this next statement, it is only just over 
3 months to December. But back to this summer.

 Pounding the streets 
in search of style was somewhat tricky in August. 
 
Remember we’re talking post pandemic here. It will slowly but surely take 
 
time to get back to how things were, if we ever can.

 But stylish folk indeed 
I did find. One has to do their duty, and do it well.

 So presenting you all 
in this brief post, Street Style from London in August 2021  

From JSTREETSTYLE

Above is a cool looking Japanese woman. 
We spotted at Portobello Road market, her cans in her hands.
Mr Dapper man himself, in his fine dandy threads. Nice whistle and flute.
Date night? WHo knows. They were clearly out to have some fun together
Twirling in Notting Hill


Those all important deetails
This dapper gent is Shota Amano, from Tokyo Japan, but we spotted him 
at Portobello Road Market, in the West End of London, checking out some 
vintage fashion, and clearly rocking some of its style.
This threesome seem clearly connected to the past, with their Edwardian 
and early 1920s threads. All authentic by the way. No repro, retro 
or renaissance seen here. Only originals. 
Seeing double ? That might cause you some trouble. 
A cool twinning groove going on here, with a slight Scottish angle possibly? 
We love their matching tartan kilts, As before. All original vintage items.
Finishing up with this way cool and stylish mother spotted in West London's 
Portobello Road market. This is the lovely Katrina from Australia with a mini 
version of herself. Katrina wears bell bottom trousers by Nidodileda and 
all other visible items are vintage or thrifted. She clearly has a very keen 
eye and sence of style.
