Blink Events: Field Day, The Finale

So, here’s our final hit of coverage from Field Day. Its the last lot of streetstyle from the event and encompasses some expected looks (denim shorts) but worked in some fresh and innovative ways. We also saw real attention to detail with brilliant accessories just adding that wonderful ‘edge’ that we are always looking for with our streetstyle coverage. There were some surprisingly elegant looks too, which feel really interesting. So, over to the images and enough ponderings from us. What do you think? Be sure to drop us a comment and tell us what you love the most from this weeks imagery.

Blink Events: Field Day, Say it Loud

Some more from Field Day for you. On from dip dying and those practical boys, we now look at some more eclectic and energetic streetstyle shots from this lovely East London festival. Taking their cue from the Spring Summer ’11 catwalks, but translating this direction in a very personal way we really love these bold pattern filled statements. One pattern is fine, but why not take on two or three? It takes a big personality to pull off clashing patterns so this is not for the faint hearted.

Thanks again to Amy for her great work covering this festival, and thanks to all of you who stopped to get your pictures taken.

Blink Events: Field Day, featuring Practical Boys

As Amy mentioned in her summary post earlier, there’s a certain stylish something in a practically dressed boy. Without meaning to offend any of those featured there is a little of the ‘Geography Teacher on a field trip’ in this look, but somehow it also feels really cool and considered too. Just to be clear, we do really like this preppy/ sporty/ well prepared boy look. Great proportions and colour work perfectly to create a very cool look.

Blink Events: Field Day

Better late than never, we have our Field Day coverage. This was the fifth anniversary of one of the most successful day festivals, set in East London’s Victoria Park, now attracting around 20,000 attendees.  We sent Amy, one of our interns, along to cover it and here’s her summary of the event and the start of three days worth of brilliant style shots…

REPORT
Field Day was really fun, lots of good summery vibes. The queue was huge and didn’t move quickly but it was worth the wait as once inside the location was spacious and the mood was up-beat. Most music genres were presented in the line up, with a focus on up and coming DJ’s and musicians such as James Blake and Erol Alkan. The sounds were a mixture of drum and bass and electro with the occasional indie band such as Jamie XX (who was unfortunately hard to hear due to be being drowned out by over excited crowds!).  Other festival fun included tradition English style sports day activities such as sack racing and a tug of war.

Festival goers proved London’s individual fashion sense with no one sticking to any specific style rules and keeping things edgy with favourites such as cut off denims and a kaleidoscope of retro inspiration. Here’s a summary of the hottest looks that I noticed:

First up is Practical outerwear. With rain forecasted, practical outerwear- particularly for men, seemed like a suitable yet stylish solution for the unpredictable British weather. Lots of classic anoraks and military style canvas rucksacks with attention to detail, chunky pockets and prominent zips. Usually updated with a pair of tailored chinos and smart shoes.

Next is Mixed Prints. Following the diverse range of prints seen on catwalks this summer, festival girls had taken to contrasting and clashing. I saw stripes teamed with washed out florals, graphic tees with camouflage , tapestry with leopard print, 80’s rave with ditsy polka dots.  Both girls and boys were making brave statements with not just colour but texture and pattern too. The more mish mash, the better!

Dip Dye looked really interesting. This was definite trend not only with clothing but hair too.  Girls were accessorizing with hair which had dip dyed ends and I also spied a fair few bold rainbow dip dyed pieces, both of which put a playful spin on 90’s grunge.This is the focus of our first set of shots…

Events- Field Day part 3: Neutral

And the final post from Victoria Park’s Field Day fest features some more subtle colour combinations. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the looks are any more low key that those that we featured in the previous post on ‘Colourful’ looks. In some cases, these looks have a softer edge, but add black into the mix and you have a cool, graphic angle too.

We really love the soft maxi skirts featured here, as well as the lighter, sheerer and fluid shapes. Its a really fresh, feminine look that’s right on the button right now. Throw in an occasional touch of leather and some sporty references and you’ve got it.
