So, we have already featured lots of great black leather and leather inspired looks this morning. This afternoon, we look at another leather based look, and this one takes things a little tougher…
The favourite option for instantly updating the leather jacket seems to be smothering it in a generous scattering of studs. The more the better! Looking like a great way to drive the now core Biker style forward, but we have also been loving studs on denim and plaid shirts, denim shorts, camo jackets and of course, accessories.

Can you believe that we went all the way to Paris and what we fell in love with the most was these incredible brogues from our very own Church’s! These have well and truly distracted us from those Prada wedge brogues and replaced them in our affections from the moment that we set eyes on these babies. This is genius footwear, wouldn’t you agree? I mean, why hasn’t someone combined these two hot trends sooner? Now we’ve seen it it makes utter aesthetic sense.
It’s wonderful to see such a historic and traditional brand stepping (excuse the pun) well outside of its usual remit. Now, where can I find a pair in size 5….?
Although its become a tourist trap and the location of some pretty mainstream retailers, there is still something essentially cool about Carnaby Street. Its often a great place to style spot very unique and interesting looks. Maybe this is because it’s close to lots of Soho creative offices and the fact that it’s right by Liberty? Who knows- but the fact is, we like to loiter with our camera at the ready and we generally manage to shoot some interesting streetstyle.
Asta spotted this young lady when out last week. We just love how on first look there is something quite vintage and refined, then on closer inspection her style owes a lot more to a punky and hard edged aesthetic. The vintage jacket has been customized by some hardcore looking studs and spikes. The shorts are leather and the shoes are pretty fierce too. Great hair and a very cool attitude just puts the cherry on this particular cake. Enjoy!

We have been blessed with stunning weather to match the stunning new location for London Fashion Week. The fashion pack looked stunning too- stunningly stylish obviously.
We were particularly struck by these beautiful boots, absolutely the footwear of choice for those in the know. If you are a true fashionista you must ignore the cobbled streets or long days of striding from show to show. These sky high heels show a commitment to fashion that supersedes mere physical pain.

Decoration has lost some of its decorum and embraced the dark side. We love the edgy touch that studs bring, taking a style from prissy to punky. This works back to the self styled and customized story that’s been emerging, as well as reflecting yet another touch of the 80’s.
