Neon Leather & Studs

30 January 2012





Milda works at Burberry HQ and always manages to look fantastic, the other day her outfit caught my style stalkers eye! Burberry leather trousers, an awesome neon double layered vest top from ASOS, suit jacket from Zara and a divine Burberry studded bag, which I so want to steal!!!


StyleStalking in Notting Hill

27 January 2012








A couple of weekends ago Rose and I hit the streets of Notting Hill for a spot of brunch and shopping on Westbourne Grove. This road in Notting Hill is one of my favourites and relatively undiscovered by the tourists compared to Portobello Road which is minutes away. Boutiques, super cool restaurants and cafes fill this road and so do the fashionable locals from the area.

I simply love photographing Rose, the utterly beautiful blogger of The Londoner, her style is always spot on! Here, she wears a divine little red blazer by Zara, tshirt by Uniqlo, leggings by Topshop, bag by AH & her new Jeffrey Cambell Litas, which I am overwhelmingly jealous of and have been hankering after a pair of the stars and strips version for ages!





South Park 'Kenny' Meets Burberry

26 January 2012



 




When I spotted this little gem of a coat walking into the office, I jumped on it like any self respecting Style StreetStalker would! From the Burberry Brit collection AW11, I am utterly obsessed!
Worn by one of my favourite StyleStalked Burberry girls, Vale wears this divine parka with J Brand flared cords, python boots, and spiked snake skin bracelet by Eva Perez.


Style StreetHunter

24 January 2012







Although I will happily confess to being a pavement princess the majority of the time, I cannot ignore that country bumpkin inside me that comes out to play once in while!
This weekend I attempted to do what many photographers and film-makers warn against… working with animals! But what better way to showcase my latest find.. Hunter’s new limited edition Union Jack wellies!

Hunter have been around since 1859 and in my opinion are still the only wellington boot to have in the country! Recently they have stepped up their game, collaborating with fashions greats such as, Jimmy Choo.  Now they have just launched a new type of city/festival wellie, perfectly timed for Coachella!! It’s not easy to make a rubber boot which was originally designed for mud, rain and more rain, into a fashion item but Hunter have achieved it with this boot, rubber and canvas with a metal Hunter plaque give the boot a very chic feel.

Previously a serious ‘fashion’ wellie boot skeptic, I have to admit this boot has converted me! Festival season here I come!!

MARINA

21 January 2012








I have been a massive fan of this little lady's designs for a long time, so I was super excited to work with her for this post. 
Marina is the talent behind the fast up and coming brand MARINA LONDON, the debut collection has been a sell out success and I can honestly say I want every single piece! Her brand focus is simple; to design great, quintessential silk tops and dresses for everyday.  

Her Autumn/Winter 2011 collection has a clean, modern cut and a 
classic silhouette that is designed to be functional and
 effortless.  As well as selling on her own website, she also stocks at Avenue32.com and in "Curve Boutique" in LA and New York.  No surprises that these divine silk tops are being featured in editorial such as Elle, Grazia, and In Style.

I already have my Virgin shirt on order and am longing to see and shoot SS12, which I have been told to expect, bigger, bolder, brighter, with delicious corals and pastel blues. 7 tops and 3 dresses in lots of gorgeous colour variations - coming out in March.


We shoot this in the back streets of Chelsea, Marina looking beautiful as usual wore, Virgin shirt by MARINA, High topped skinny jeans from 7 for all Mankind, those divine booties are from Hobb's 30 years vintage collection, which is well worth checking out. Her faux fur gilet is from Darimeya, Coat by Givenchy, Necklace from Made and rings - Maison Martin Margiela & Topshop.
Marina also has the most fantastic blog, her photographs are truly amazing, this is firmly on my daily blog stalking lists! In particular I LOVE this post!!!

Glimpse of the final walk and the wonderful Christopher!




Last Saturday, in the fashion area of Milan, Burberry hosted their AW12 Menswear Prorsum show. Please welcome the Burberry Gentleman! The collection is extremely strong with the theme of the ‘English countryside with a twist’ running through, this was displayed in highly tailored looks in fabrics such as, Herringbone wools, tweeds, velvets, corduroy and quilted wax cottons. The attention to detail was fantastic with accessories, which are verging on art pieces! The umbrellas are to die for, with the handles of English resin animals heads, such as rams, ducks and hounds all hand painted combined with college stripes, these are the coolest umbrellas I have ever seen! Other non-apparel items included studded leather gloves and iPad/laptop cases, all stunning.

As usual the music fitted in so well with the brand and collection with the return of The Waterboys - The Pan Within and Paris In The Rain , The Jam -Every Little Bit Hurts and finishing with the most amazing acoustic version of Nessun Dorma – Turandot by Jeff Beck – a must download!

Overall … yet another amazing collection from Burberry!

Debut Launch of Tee By A.T.

16 January 2012













I have been super excited for quite a while about this post, this is the launch of my new T-shirt label Tee by A.T.

This is the first limited edition collection of 10 exclusively customised designs of the iconic I love NY tees. My thoughts behind this first collection came from my obsession with NYC, when I was there earlier in the year I picked up one of the I heart NY tees, which I have always thought are so cool considering they are targeted at tourists – I hate to admit but an ‘I love London’ t-shirt just doesn’t have the same charm does it!

With all my t-shirts I buy for myself, however cool they are, I instantly rip the sleeves off, stud them, dye them, sew into them, just to make the item stand out from the crowd. These T-shirts are just this… they all have completely different customisations and also out of this collection of 10 I have two special ones for bespoke requests, for example if you like the zip on the back of the tee from one design and the studs from another, let me know and I will make one up especially for you. Everything on the tee is hand sewn/studded/dyed. Prices range from £18 - £30 depending on the amount of detail.

I haven’t included all the designs on this post so therefore, if you are interested please email me thestylestreetstalker@gmail.com or tweet me ;) and I will send over my mini lookbook!! Tees are also available to buy on ASOS Marketplace.


Illustration Stalking

13 January 2012



One of my favourite things about starting this blog, is that I have the pleasure of being able to meet the most interesting people, this is one of them. Steph is an illustrator from the blog FAIIINT who does the most amazing illustrations and I was over the moon when she did one of me. Of course wearing my most treasured wardrobe piece; my Burberry leather spiked jacket, which is one of 12 made from the SS11 Prorsum collection.


She is unbelievably talented and her blog is one of my favourites!



Coolest Kid In The Office Playground

9 January 2012








 
When I was in NYC, typical me I didn't bring a big enough suit case for all the clothes I bought out there, so I simply had to buy this little beauty!!! I've been looking for a rucksack for ages and fell in love with this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag! Worn with one of my favourite jackets from The Kooples, Burberry Prorsum leggings and my floppy hat, which I plan customize with feathers!

This is my fav bag at the moment! Love you Mr Marc Jacobs!!!
