I had a very different vision in mind when I asked my friend Roman-Erol to model for a Street Style shoot and although the outcome did differ from what was in my head, I was pleased with the results. Roman’s style is very laid back and has a sort of demure air about it although that may be a by-product of his own persona. The asymmetrical tartan shirt was definitely a favourite although I didn’t know it was his own creation until much later (I’m upset he won’t teach me how to sew.)

We chose to shoot in Brick Lane because, well, it’s Brick Lane. I don’t think there’s ever been a time wherein I’ve wandered through that area and not come across someone who I immediately either feel the need to photograph or fawn over their style. It is definitely one of my favourite places in the whole of London. The same can definitely not be said for the weather that day! It was clear for about two minutes between each outfit change and pouring the next fifteen but apart from the less than desirable climate everything else went off with few hitches. An interesting first experience and I’m definitely going to be doing more of these kind of projects in the future.

All photographs were taken by the lovely and talented Jessica Apap

It was such a pleasure to work with her!

Hope everyone’s having a great week so far 🙂

I liked how varied the colour scheme of this outfit was, the yellow twill Vans were surprising seeing as there was no other tinge of the colour on the rest of his form. Especially dug the hat (I have a collection of my own) and the acid wash jeans + denim jacket. Denim, Denim, Denim. I’m sort of crazy about it, especially pairing different shades together! The lighter denim jacket and the acid wash denim jeans worked out for this guy which doesn’t surprise me in the least as in my experience men are able to carry off these kind of denim collaborations very well.

The print on the shirt can only be described with one word by me; Groovy. It’s very much something that I myself would wear as I also have a thing for mens’ clothing- hence why most of my guy friends won’t lend me their jackets or sweatshirts due to fear that I’ll never give them back (They are right to be afraid).

As a side note, has anyone been to Convent Garden recently? Some of the street performers there are actually terrifyingly good! Give it a go if you’re in need for some entertainment  🙂

Hope everyone has a good week! Bjs **

Black Leather Look Pocket T-shirt – TOPMAN

Similar Floral Printed Trousers (Original were a brazilian brand that he couldn’t recall) can be gotten at – AliExpress (which takes about two weeks to deliver) and Ebay. The latter link expires in 25 days so make sure you grab these beautiful floral printed pants whilst you still can!

I love, love, loved the floral printed trousers! The baggy pants paired with the well fitting black t-shirt with the leather pocket and the grey beanie + the gold pineapple necklace was a marvellous mix and match. I wish more men would embrace the floral hues and prints that the spring/summer seasons throw at us every year.

There’s a reason as to why many people (not just I) find Brazilian people so attractive, its not only their charming disposition or the fact that they speak one my favourite languages, it’s also due to their exotic style and manner in which they carry themselves.

And this Brasileiro carried it off perfectly!

This look whispers one word to me, a genteel, whimsical word that reached its peak popularity in France in the early 19th century; Bohemian.

I also found this dress in River Island which pretty much gives the same effect of layering the two articles of clothing mentioned above 🙂

Loved this couples style!

From their perfectly coiffed hair to their very well clad feet.

Their individual style complemented each others perfectly ☺
