Mr. Dot & were out recently, at an art launch party on High Street Kensington, and on the way home, we saw this guy with his friend*. Actually, Mr. Dot spotted him: he was his style find. He & Mr. Dot were having a whole kind of alpha male jokey banter going, and I managed to get enough shots in the low light that some weren't too blurry. (This post is for you, Jordan & Trendy Dwarf! And I've just discovered, today is said Dwarf's birthday, so please go to his blog and wish him a happy one!
*Just heard from him: his name is Markus! In fact I remember saying it to myself several times after so I wouldn't forget, but of course I did. He said it's all vintage & I'm going to get more details shortly.
Minutes later, I saw this great Italian girl. Alas I didn't write down either of their names at the time, and haven't heard from them (yet) so we'll only have to speculate where he got that hat (& gloves, and coat, & cowboy boots) and where she got that fabulous lizard effect black leather jacket, brocade Mary Poppins-esque bag, and gorgeous belt. And I'll ponder what names fit them. She could be a Marcella, no? The only Marcella I know is blonde. Or, Nicoletta! Actually, that might be her name.
It just occurred to me: more beige & black. The trends I'm seeing now are: all black, black with beige, black with red, black with accents of brown leather, black with bright colours (as per Emily, but more great looks on that coming up). Oh and of course, the ubiquitous black with leopard pattern!
