Out and about....Amsterdam on my mind


So, the last shot I posted was of a citizen of the Netherlands. Little did I know at the time of posting that my next image would come to you from there. I have just returned from a advertising job I shot there last week. It was a pretty packed schedule but I  managed a couple of hours to myself which was when I met Xue.
Xue described herself as a freelancer. For me the dungarees, the bike and the headphones make a perfect combination. She says that no one believes she can cook but she is really good at it. When I asked her what she likes to cook best she told me Fusion and Asian.
She is wearing vintage Levis dungarees, a Replay shirt, COS shoes, Hugo Boss sunglasses and Bose headphones. Her bike is a Gazelle.

Vicky is from Shang Dong in China and is an artist. When I saw her she had a lovely air of happiness about her. It was great to watch.When I asked her the questions I ask it became evident why. Her style influence she says is spirit energy. She likes to imagine the city as a forest. For Vicky meditation is essential, especially under a tree and she says it influences your energy more and helps you get back to nature.. Her 2 favourite places in London are the British Museum and the SOAS Library. The 1st drawing is one of Vicky's artworks (she doesnt have her work online)the 2nd is one of her boyfriends which she sent in her 1st email to me after we met. There is a great feeling of movement in it. Vicky is wearing a hat and coat she bought at Barnet Fair, her boots are Kenzo, necklace All Saints, bag COS and her umbrella is from China.

Louise has just graduated in Illustration and is deciding what's next. We met just after she had been to see the D&AD student competition exhibition in Spitalfields. Spitalfields also happens to be her favourite place in the city. Her style influences are designers like Raf Simons, old TV shows, films and Romwe. Her surprise was that she used to rock climb. For our shots she is wearing a COS dress and shirt, Office shoes, Burberry watch and is carrying a Longchamp bag.

Out and about....Floral St

Zac works for Louboutin how cool is that. Saying that when I asked him his surprise he told me that he has 300 pairs of shoes and that his new flat has a room just for shoes. Now here is a man whose love of shoes has him working for one of the best. Style wise Zac dresses with his mood which can be flamboyant or casual. He likes to wear a lot of designer brand key pieces which are an easy fit with high street. He also has a lot of fur. Zac's favourite place in London is Shoreditch House. Here he is wearing a jacket and trousers from Aqua - Carnaby Street. Louboutin shoes (of course), fur from Brick Lane and COS top.

Niels Oostenbrink  from Lifestyle Hunters, told me that his look for today was influenced by the colour orange and the Zara fur "I like to pop with the colours". He usually co-ordinates with his partner Linda Tol. Today was no exception but I will so you all that shot another day. His coat is also Zara, belt Primark, bag Wig 51 and shoes Bellerose.

Out and about....Mondrian inspiration

From Fashionistable
How could Charlotte's shirt not catch your eye. It is bold and bright and is by Moschino. Moschino's motto was "fashion should be fun and should send a message". I think he would have felt this shirt lived up to his motto. Charlotte works for Modus PR. She told me that she did design at Kingston Uni and just sort of fell into PR which has been an ongoing internship. She likes East London best saying that the night life is good. Surprisingly she says she did the mini marathon when she was at school. The rest of her outfit is made up of jacket from All Saints, shorts from Topshop, shoes by Jeffery Campbell and a COS bag.

Out and about....stopping traffic

From Fashionistable
Fleur is a Strategy Director at BBH and has been with them for 2 and a half years now. Originally from Surrey she went to Manchester for Uni (which is were I went too) and studied English Lit. We spoke about literature for a while and she told me her favourite play is Hamlet and that she likes to see it as often as possible. The last version she saw was the one with Jude Law in it. Style wise it is not how she is influenced, it is more about how she chooses to dress. Firstly it is a really good pair of jeans usually bought in NYC. Then its coats  she says "I buy a lot of coats". Her favourite label when she can afford it is Rag and Bone. Fleur's surprise is that she is a published poet. Here she is wearing jeans by Acne, overcoat from her favourite Rag and Bone, COS shirt, Reiss hat, Alexander McQueen scarf and Clarks Originals desert boots.

Out and about....flaming redhead

From Fashionistable
Sophie is part of a graduate scheme in an Ad agency. I asked her had she ever been approached by a model agency as I was surprised she wasn't modeling. She told me she had been scouted twice. Once when she was 14 and her mum said she was too young. Then again after Uni. This time the agencies said she was too old!!!!! Style wise, her influence used to be charity shops. Then she moved and lived in Paris for a while where it became Parisian woman. Now it is a mixture of both. Surprisingly she likes to knit and taught herself on You Tube. She told me you can learn anything on You Tube, just type in 'how to' try it, she is right. I love people who for them the grass is greenest right under their feet. This is how it is for Sophie. Her favourite place is the place she grew in, at home in the countryside in West Sussex where "the garden borders the South Downs and has wonderful hilly views."  Sounds beautiful.
Today her shirt is from French Connection, the top underneath is from COS (she told me COS is her obsession - it's her favourite shop). Sophie is very tall and has amazingly long legs, this can however pose a problem getting trousers long enough and slim enough to fit. For all you tall women these jeans are from J Brand and finally her ballet pumps are from Topshop.

I have made it through to the Vogue Photo blog shortlist. There are still 97 other hopefuls. I would love it if you would leave a comment for me here.

Out and about....a model stylist

From Fashionistable
Alex has just moved to London from Denmark. She is a model with Profile but also works as a stylist. So she can work both sides of the lens. Good move Alex. When I met her she was on her way to style a shoot for Dansk Magazine and was good enough to stop for me. She told me her surprising thing is that although she looks soft she is really quite tough and she doesn't like to smile. Luckily for her models are not expected to smile too often. Alex bought her dress in NYC. Her boots are Ksubi and were bought in Tokyo, the belt is from Cos, bag is Miu Miu and headphones are Bose.
