INSPIRING MILLENNIALS IN SEARCH OF VINTAGE STYLE

Inspiring Millennials In Search of Vintage Style Sunday 7th 2018

Sunday last, we decided to venture out into the vastness that is London,
 in search of vintage style from one of the many specialist fashion fairs. 
This particular one was called Frock Me, and resides in the splendid 
dwellings of Chelsea Town Hall.
Showing ones face and networking for a while, albeit a brief while, 
one could not help but to notice the sheer number very stylish Asians present. 
A decision was made. Now to act upon it. There was way more 
fun to be had outside shooting street style fashion imagery, 
of these super stylish mostly Chinese and Japanese young millennials.

This post is a sharing of those individuals we spotted that stood out, 
and we liked, with the feeling that you might like their style too.
 This is Yilin Wang from China. She wears a pretty pink and red check 
trouser suit by Comme des Garcons, from their AW 2018 Tricot collecction, 
with a bag from Fendi
 This is Fashion Student Jasmine Meng from Beijing China.
She wears an earring by WingFree, a black and white vintage bag, a 
trenchcoat by COS, a pretty dress by 1pStudio a vintage bag, with shoes 
by Comme des Garcons, from their AW 2018 Tricot collecction. 
 
 Let's take a closer look at those way cool shoes from by Comme des Garcons
 
 This is the lovely FUN Lyu Yifan 呂一凡 from Shanghai China. She wears 
a coat by MaxMara, shoes from TopShop and a bag by Quinto & Francis
 Here's April from China wearing all black, with bow tie boots by AGL
a top by True Religion, a handmade jacket and a skirt by Ilaria Lepore
 Now I mentioned the many millennials  earlier, but how cool and stylish 
is this woman. For all those women out there that think you have to be 
 18 - 20, and with a billion instagram followers, with some product glued 
to your face,  as some odd brand appendage, in order to be cool 
or be seen to have style, let this woman with incredible and impeccable 
style, help to resculpt your perception.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Why is it always women or young 
looking girls? I can hear those brain cogs churning and grinding away. 
Oh the noise those thoughts make.
I guess the answer is simply, it would appear that fashion 
appeals to women more, so the industry targets them more. 
But that is not to say men are not interested in fashion, 
or do not possess a sense of individuality, in their expression of style. 
That is very much not how things are these days. 

Just take a look at these two examples of style. 
Two very dapper dandies rocking some serious vintage inspired man style.

LONDON FASHION WEEK SS 2019 - POST 2

London Fashion Week brings with it lots of excitement. 
Like days of old when a circus came to town, LFW makes the heart giddy
 and all a flutter. At the same time you also get that OMG. The workload, 
because it’s like no other throughout the year. Truth be told the rush 
of excitement against the workload, its manageable and well worth it

Now we mentioned in the last post we’ll be sharing more street action
 images with, you from outside the recent shows. Hope you like 
what you see. There are quite a few images, so let’s make a start.

This post is dedicated to her Majesty Queen Michelle, way up north. 
One Two Buckle Your Shoe
Of course I still remember. Such inspirations from way back then, 
and still now as you are about to see. So get ready for a Foot Candy Special.
Shoes by Oyster Footwear. Another new discovery from a guest at 
LFW. Oyster are a cool artisan brand from South Korea. and as you can see, 
are seriously stylish works of art. Just look at this stuning fun mule.
 Anyone up for boot camp?
Just look at these beauties. These golden boots are by Liudmila
worn by this beauty in the image below, Shyness Director Shiny Fransis.
Style icon and blatent shoe visual excitement fan.
 More excietment this time from our friends at Balenciaga
this time with a fresh trwist on an old friend. These buckled ankle boots.
 Here's some more from Balenciaga. This time we have sequin embellished 
slash heel pumps in fuchsia pink, and belong to Erika Santos.
 These caught our attention. Spotted on a cool Japanese editor, the colours 
and styling are clearly defined. These have a unique jewellery angle to them, 
and always seem to be spotted on someone Asian. the brand is Coliac.
A modern classic. Monochrome fabric strap J'adior slingbacks from
 Christian Dior.
 These are just right for the perfect statement of entrance, at the 
grand ball. See you there tonight.

More from LFW on our next post, coming soon

LONDON FASHION WEEK SS 2019 - POST 1

Apologies for the delay since the last post. 

It is now that time of year once more, when all is bright and colourful
 in store fronts, pop ups are a plenty and all the creatives in town come out to play.  
For it is indeed play time, or rather shall we say it is once more again 
that time known as London Fashion Week,

The Fashion Parade is back in town, along with all the bloggers, 
influencers, journalist, photographers, videographers, presenters, writers, 
editors, stylist, buyers, make up artists, models and all other creatives 
I may have managed to have escape mentioning.

Anniversaries, new leaders, creative directors, and new teams, 
new marking plans and there are always new bean counters. 
Way too many some of you may think.

London is awash with a smile of rare blessed and prolonged sunshine, 
and along with it, Fashion Week is hear to give us all a taster 
of inspirations for the coming spring summer season of 2019.
A lot can happen and probably will take place between now and then, 
when hot items hot the shops, or more likely the case being 
it's all about fast fashion these days, within 48 hours max 
of the end of the catwalk shows, you should be able to get your 
hands on those very same items you’re all googling, streaming, 
downloading and flicking through endless pages with images on, 
if a bit old school and still love all that tactile analogue stuff.
So how has this been reflected on the main catwalks? The ones outside 
the various fashion show venues? Well as previously mentioned, 
colour is making a play for attention, and in a would bound by 
planetary law to adhere to that term that has an epidemic influence, 
(safe), the street style provided a much welcomed show of entertainment 
and inspirations. Hopefully some will influence the mainstream 
fashion houses. It has been known to happen.

So let’s start off the proceedings here at JSTREETSTYLE
with an offering of the visual excitement we managed to capture for you, 
over the first 2 days of #LFW, London Fashion Week.

She wears a belt and shirt and jacket by Awake, a bag by Acne Studios, 
denim shorts and way cool looking heels by Marni.  
We love her style. We'll be showing you more of it we promise. 
 We just LOVE this beautiful white cheaongsam/qipao inspired dress

 Just how cool are young Japanese women into fashion here in the UK?
Don't answer that. It's a rhetorical question. You already know the answer.

On our last post, we ended with some denim, so let's pick up from 
where we left off last. With a bit of the blue stuff, we all know and love.
This is stylist Ramario Chevoy in Diesel denim and Urban Outfitters.
Bit of a chain reaction going on here, so please don't get too distressed.
 Here's a new face to the family. The lovely Gloria Wen from Canada.
Now here in London making fashion and style her very own, rocking denim.
We love her style. We'll be showing you more of it we promise.
