Pick Me Up at Somerset House. Artist Seiko Kato and Ian Emes with their London street style fashion. Agnes B, Cos, Reiss, American Retro and Ca4la.
Whilst on the look out for some illustration inspiration at Pick Me Up graphic arts fair in Somerset House I admired the work of artist Seiko Kato who happened to be hanging out next to her mesmerising collages with her companion Ian Emes. Not only is this lady super talented (and nice), she also has great classic style. She had on a Cos dress, cute victorian lace-up boots and a hat by Japanese miliner Ca4la. Ian was wearing an Agnes B shirt, coat from Reiss and a hat from American Retro.
Looking effortlessly sleek in floral print knee-patch leggings and white t-shirt with a wide pleated collar on her over-size coat, Kai Kyungah Min, on a visit to Brick Lane, was shopping for clothing by new British designers to take back home to New York.
There’s no need for bold colours to be eye catching; the petite and very modest Geraldine stood out amongst the busy shoppers and boozers in the Old Truman Brewery in shades of beige, with a chunky knit cardigan from Gap, bag, scarf, shoes and tapered chino trousers all from Zara, highlighted by a hair piece from Spitalfields Market.
Designer Aimee McWilliams at Kennaland Studios in Broadway Market
Whilst visiting Kennaland Studios in Broadway Market, London, we had to admire Aimee’s mix of fabrics and textures. Her beautifully tailored wool jacket is by Balmain, who she designs for, her satin trousers by Aimee McWilliams (her own label) with a DKNY top and Tory Burch boots.
Whilst on a lazy Sunday stroll down Brick Lane Market on the hunt for some vintage bargains, we stumbled across Jasmia Robinson (of Britains Next Top Model fame), demonstrating how to do dress-down Sunday and still look hot. Wearing a blazer from Topshop, a Moa scarf, boots from River Island and hat from Uniqlo.
So THIS is how you dress for an East London wedding. These ladies were on the way to see their pal tie the knot, showing that wedding guest fashion needn’t be all soft tones and fascinators. Fur coats, knee socks and pink hair all the way…
It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it. It’s no accident that this lovely lady’s wearing her shirt upside down, and it works. Newly arrived from Sweden, and in head to toe charity shop finds, we found Anna amonsgt the throng of well dressed boys and girls on a Saturday afternoon in London Fields.
