As Ellie Jane said: they're here. The aviators have landed.
It happened last week: actually come to think of it, the same day as Vogue's Fashion Night Out, and the day I got caught in the rain (see previous post). I was coming out of the tube and you know those really loooooong escalators? This girl was on them but it was really crowded. I started thinking, Jill, this is getting nuts. Maybe it's time you give this street style business a rest.
But, Reader: I couldn't help myself. I was running up the escalator like Matt Damon in The Bourne Identity, the music playing really loud in my head, heart pounding.. innocent bystanders getting knocked down right and left, while I'm pulling my camera from my bag, shooting as I go.
She did eventually give me the slip so I don't know if she purchased it (or, where) or if she borrowed it from her brother, boyfriend, father, or a genuine aviator. But the point is, they're here.
Predictions: London Fashion Week. What percentage do you think will be wearing one?
