Stylesight’s London team had an epic weekend at the Hard Rock Calling festival in Hyde Park, thanks to our buddies over at Hard Rock who put on an awesome retrospective show that included three amazing headline acts: Soundgarden, Bruce Springsteen and Paul Simon. The rainy weather (welcome to England, guys!) didn’t stop our editors from rocking out all weekend in ponchos and wellies.
Associate Women’s/Junior’s Editor Shanu and Senior Denim Editor Amy went weak at the knees re-living their teens and singing along to Chris Cornell from Soundgarden on Friday night, then the whole crew witnessed music history on Saturday when Sir Paul McCartney stepped on stage with Bruce Springsteen! Amy dug Bruce’s double indigo chambray and denim look. Crowds came out on a sunnier Sunday for Paul Simon’s performance of Graceland; complete with a band of South African musicians, it has has been described as one of the landmark performances of his long career.
Despite a constant threat of rain and slightly older-than-average punter, the editors still managed to hang out with some pretty stylish rockers!
