He Was There Way Before Agyness Deyn
We have a huge window at work that overlooks a bus stop. Everyday, without fail, various cute old folks would turn up to catch their buses at very specific times. If you are a vintage fashion lover, you would, like me, want to rip the clothes off some these oldies-but-goldies' backs. But it's not about the year-of-origin of the clothes, it's how they wear them so well, so thoughfully put together, a new look every single day.
I've been wanting to document their style for ages but it would seem so inappropriate in the eyes of the boss and co-workers to drop whatever I'm working on, run out of the building to accost some old dear for a photo and details of their wardrobe.
But when I saw Mr Silver Fox (he's not one of the regulars) and his hairstyle today, two days after I wrote about Ms Deyn's new 'do, I knew I had to do a sneaky-style-ee shot, through the window.
The short blunt fringe, the sharp Mr Spock side(burn)s, the slightly layered bowl shape and that silver that you'll never be able to get out of a bottle! He's the man, man.
