Stalked: Claudiu Mirescu, Photographer

29 January 2014

While running to my new favourite caffeine heaven; Monmouth Coffee shop, I saw Claudiu sitting outside with his coffee. His style caught my eye because he wasn't trying to be 'on trend' or 'fashionable', his style was just .. him!

Claudiu is a photographer, to get an idea of his work check out his very cool tumblr



Stalked: Omenaa, New York Stylist

27 January 2014

Recently I stalked the lovely Omenaa Boakye, a British born, New York based stylist on the back streets of Soho, and quizzed her over a coffee about her style and career.

What do you do? What's cool about your job?

I am a Fashion Stylist and Journalist. I like the fact that every day is different, one day I might be shooting on location at the beach, the next day I’m running around showrooms looking for the perfect looks. I also love that I get to meet new people, from clients to photographers.

Stalked: Chris, Stylist & Designer, Crickett

21 January 2014

I bumped into Chris a while back at one of my favourite sample sales, Dover Street Market! Chris had just finished working for them as one of their stylists, a year on he now has is own brand and is still styling along the way. I caught up with him recently to find out more...


What do you do? And what's cool about your job?

I do various fashion related stuff, mostly as a stylist. I guess what is cool about it is the chance to meet new people and make new contacts whilst on a job. 



Stalked: James Lakeland, Fashion Designer

16 January 2014

My second male stalking for the week is the talented fashion designer James Lakeland, his latest collection is one that definitely warrants a shop.. my favourite - the blue furs, which can be worn over any jacket - one of these is certainly on my 'WANT' list!

What do you do and what’s cool about your job?

 I am the Founder and Creative Director of the womenswear label James Lakleand.  I’m lucky enough to love my job: for its variety; creativity; financial structure, which keeps me grounded; competitive edge, which keeps me motivated to continue to push boundaries and create something exceptional.

Stalked: Richard Grindy, Founder & Director, Rook & Raven Gallery

14 January 2014

There are loads of galleries in London, but only a few that are really exciting to follow. One that comes to mind is Rook & Raven in Fitzrovia. I stumbled across this gallery a year ago when they were showing exhibitions such as Lionel Smit and most recently Billy Zane who I had the pleasure of stalking. 

Finally I pinned down the very stylish Director of the gallery to talk about his style and what he loves about the art world and London.

Why did you decide to start the gallery?

The idea of launching the gallery grew naturally from the online art consultancy that my business partner and I set up when we were both looking for career changes. I had originally worked in the music industry and through this found myself working with artists. Our first gallery was on the KIng's Road and as we outgrew that space we looked for a larger venue and here we are now in Fitzrovia.


The Stalkers Fav Menswear Bits!!

12 January 2014

If you haven't gathered already by the mass of male models dashing around central London, oh yes it's that time again.. LCM: Mens Collections. Here's a little recap of some of my favourite shows!

McQueen

There couldn't be a more appropriate venue for McQueen's latest men's fall SS14 menswear show than a deconsecrated church. Under the roof of the Welsh Chapel the brand hosted their menswear collection which consisted of fabulous tailoring and modern kilted skirts that had distinct echoes of Lee McQueen's own men's collections from ages past. Sarah Burton was taking "a nostalgic look back," not just at McQueen's history but also at the history of the chapel and the Soho that surrounds it. 



Stalked: Henry Graham Co-Founder of Wolf & Badger, Boutique

8 January 2014

I always think shopping after Christmas once all the crazyness has died down, is the best time to shop. Armed with 'present money' from Christmas, I tend to hit the shops like a mad women, this year my first stop was one of my favourite shops, Wolf and Badger, recently I caught up with the co-founder Henry Graham, to talk shop, so to speak!

Tell me about Wolf and Badger? What's your brand ethos?
