Givenchy Menswear

It’s so barmy knowing someone who worked on this.

J’adore the stripes…., and then the refreshing burst of white

Edward Herrmann

Here’s what I love about the movie world.

Edward Herrmann is Max, the head vamp in The Lost Boys (1987)

is Grant Stayton III in Overboard (1987) with the fab Goldie Hawn

and Grandpa aka Richard Gilmore in Gilmore Girls (2000-7)

 

Going South part 1

As a UCL grad, gravitating towards the north of London has been only natural but I can’t help but notice the attention south London’s been garnering of late, particularly the up-and-coming areas of Peckham and New Cross. So in the spirit of trying something new, I’m packing my passport and heading south of the river to check out what it’s got to offer in terms of bars/restaurants/fun times – starting with Rooftop Cinema’s new outpost at the Bussey Building in Peckham Rye.

A stone’s throw from the station, you can’t help but fall in love with the view of London’s skyline.

We went to see Lost Boys, a total classic vamp film complete with 80’s fashion & amazing layered scenes of homoerotic initiations.

What I love about this outdoor cinema experience is that the movie starts as the sun sets (alleviating any issues with light vs the projector) and Gerry & the Rooftop Cinema gang provide slankets to ward against the chill. Sitting in the striped deckchairs with your own headphones on ensures you’re totally undisturbed by people going to the street food stands/the bar/the loos. Winning.

Check out their programme of events at www.rooftopfilmclub.com – they also show films at Queen of Hoxton, Netil House and Kensington Roof Gardens.

Broken brogues

It looks like my trusty Russell & Bromley brogues are no more.

There you can see my neon green American Apparel sock poking out the side, where the sole and the upper have detached from one another. The cracks and scuffs have only added character to my black cherry-hued lace-ups if you ask me, but I think this might be taking it a step too far.
