It’s all cool at art school

This is the gorgeous Rebecca Merrill, an art student from Stoke Newington. Rebecca’s mastered vintage dressing to perfection, combining unique pieces to create an eclectic and playful look. She wears an Orthodox Jewish hat from the 50’s bought from a charity shop, 1940’s glasses from a charity shop, a 70’s riding jacket, a trade union mechanics dress from the 50’s, boots from Peacocks, a scarf from a charity shop and a 60’s bag bought from a charity shop.

Kiyo is a hair artist from East Acton. She wears a unicorn print jacket by Topshop, vintage shirt, trousers by Dress and Dressed, Dr Martens and a hat by Vivienne Westwood

Looking shady

Zainab’s utility look


Zainab’s utility jacket is both practical and stylish – a great choice for festival outerwear. She wears a jacket and shorts by Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren, t-shirt by Cos, boots by Topshop and a fringed bag by Ralph Lauren.

Parrots and Peacocks

Lee is the editor of Parrots and Peacocks, a neon-bright men’s fashion blog. Check out Lee’s gif-tastic collages and colourful comment on fashion.

Stud-ying hard

Leather, studs and neon pink = a hot combo.

Yunus & Eliza

This is Yunus Ascott: artist/jewellery designer extraordinaire and one half of the award winning Yunus & Eliza. I met him and his lovely partner Eliza Higginbottom at the Fashion East Mens Installations during London Collections: Men. Their fantastical jewellery and sculptural designs take influence from theatre and mythology to create beautifully innovative pieces. Take a look at their website here to see their work. One of their rings is already on my Christmas wish list…

Yunus’ Poseidon Ring

His charity shop boots are splattered in paint after he and Eliza cast the sculptural figurehead for the Royal Barge, the Spirit of Chartwell for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. What a royal mess!

The sculptural headpieces were on display at the Fashion East Mens Installations

Graeme in Joseph Turvey

Graeme is a junior fashion writer at Drapers. You can’t miss him in this Joseph Turvey combo – a beautiful mix of classic tailoring and eye-catching illustration. Turvey is a London based menswear designer who showcased his MA collection at London Fashion Week’s Menswear Day in February 2012. Check out his website here.

Feeling all white

An all white outfit is certainly a brave choice for a festival. But mud, ketchup and beer didn’t deter artist Terence from wearing his customised vintage outfit with confidence at Lovebox.
