This chap stood out from the crowd not only because of his considerable height and movie star good looks but because of the incongruity of his Adidas tracksuit amongst all the deconstructed Japanese designs in black. A most daring feat...alas he was only there to accompany his very stylish lady friend, him in fact being a personal trainer.

Why does this remind me of Hungarian folklore patterns?
Love the clashing patterns of the dress and jacket combined with grey brogues... And that infectious smile

Phew. It's over! Never thought I'd finish commenting on this season's shenanigans
Still feel like a cheat after having infiltrated enemy lines in my frustration to find something original on the streets. It will never be a challenge to stalk the cobbled pavements of Somerset House to shoot people who have studied how to look/dress/act different and who are surrounded by fellow facionistas who will inspire/pressure them to continue to do so. But it kind of defeats the purpose of this enterprise: to find people of the street with an individual voice and style unconnected to the world of facion
Oh well...trudging on!

My friend Hermano and his socks. Great colours and contrast
But I will never understand (as a sock fetishist) what is the point of designing socks with details - such as these colour blocks - that will forever be invisible to the passing eye! It's nice for the wearer to know that when in the privacy of his home he can smugly look down at his feet sans footwear and acknowledge those secret toe and heel colour blocks. But why bother designing such follies if they make no discernible visual contribution to a particular look?!
Remember many a times in otherwise well-stocked sock departments of my favourite shopping emporiums when my frustration reached near violent levels upon coming across the most beautiful colour combinations - on the toes and heels!! Ha! Heart now sunk I replaced the offending garment and left with a determination to start my own foot stockings company...(Erm...In the pipeline!)
Happy Socks offered an initial jolt of hope in the field, but sadly, I've been disappointed by their safe or down-right odd colour combos of late.
Richard James does have a vibrant colour palette but his socks practically feel like women's tights on due to the fabric's extreme thinness...
Another surprising detail on Nedim's garb. At first glance it's just an ordinary classic white shirt which I duly ignored. It wasn't until some time later that I caught him with his back to me when I spotted the elasticated sleeves and back. (Rubber threads seem to be a running theme for the fellow...) I love the wit of this idea
I'd be curious to find out what other bombshells his wardrobe would reveal...

Another beautiful face straight out of Brideshead Revisited. This chap's ought to be in front of the camera not behind (as a stylist for The Stylist, a London free weekly).
Oh and he wears his vintage threads rather well...
To get an idea what this camera does, check out the photographer's website(s) and alter egos: Sean Michael/Walter Hugo
(Apologies for the soft focus image, but my contacts were acting up that day)
