Out and about....small town, big city

From Fashionistable
Pedro and David are both from the same small town in Portugal and are both studying fashion design at St Martins. (Are we looking at the next big designer collaboration in fashion?) When I asked them what they liked best about London they both agreed it was the freedom to express themselves in their dress. They used to be ridiculed for the way they dress in the small town they are from, saying in London people are more individual and original and like what they wear. Ari Seth Cohen over at Advanced Style wrote an interesting piece this week about a young man from South Carolina asking for help with the fashion bulling he was going through. So it goes on everywhere.
Pedro told me the the most surprising thing about himself is the way he wears his clothes. David told me he could knit. Now these guys are dressed wonderfully and after they had gone I was kicking myself that I didn't give you a close up on their hands as they were both wearing amazing rings. I will tell you about them in a mo when I let you know where they are from. Pedro's style influence today is Philip Treacy and military. Usually it is just the 1st thing he sees. Here he is wearing a hat by Philip Tracey, his coat and shirt are Burberry, I think (a combination of atrocious hand writing and it was cold). Levi jeans, Gucci shoes, vintage glasses, Caroline Herrera bag and an Alexander McQueen skull ring. David is wearing a Rick Owens coat, Dsquared cardy, Levi's, boots from and alternative shop in Portugal and a YSL ring.

My eyes nearly popped out of their sockets! Holy Moly! I agree with them 100% in London you can just "be".

Love this post.

Ding dong! London has way of bringing out the best AND worst in every body. But in this case, the best!

As a Portuguese native myself, I completely agree with them on the freedom thing. I understand exactly what they're saying.
People will stare at you for the smallest, eccentric thing.

But their looks are incredible. In particular, I love the military jacket :)

Good that they found a great place to live in and express themselves!

I like all these "couples" shots you have been doing recently. And sadly enough, I can now pinpoint a Burberry coat at twenty paces - which either means I don't go out enough, or maybe I just remember items that I've really admired. I love both the colour and cut of that Jacket, especially paired with the skinny jeans and sunglasses. What a stylish duo!

Great shot, Dvora. They look great and I'm sure London is just THE city for them.
