There’s something about London that I’ve always found so London-ish. I was thinking about this the other night at the pub while “London Calling” by The Clash was playing on the soundsystem (not kidding) after having gone for fish and chips (also not kidding – yes, I’m a cliche). The atmosphere here and the DIY style you see on the street and the music and the general irreverence that has grown from movements like mod and punk is still going strong – even as the rest of the world seems to further embrace conformity and uniformity. There’s no real word to describe it other than “Londonesque”. Here are photos I shot at the Topshop Unique and Basso & Brooke shows. (Did I mention that I’m in London?) xo eddie
