London Street Fashion

Sunday, 20 March 2011

London street fashionStreet fashion is the special vector of fashionable life which reflects the urban spirit. The spirit reigning in London streets is so exceptional that is able to addle those who are more accustomed to classic image of the capital we perceive from classic literature. The images the foreigners meet in streets are too different from those so-called dandies and prim ladies. The individualism at it highest and extreme level lives there which is often and wrongly considered as the shocking and scandalous way to look.

London and street style are two diverse notions which are not separated from each other. And this is not because it’s the special culture and breakup of stereotypes related to literature England. Street fashion comes from street where it was formed quite spontaneously. It happened back in 70s when the cliché of dandy image was был erased completely. People looked then as of reflecting their inner style, their individualism was shown off which was hidden behind the ironed perfection for longer time.

The history of London street fashion is easily related to casual style that appeared from the football arena. The pure sporty image of the British who are keen on football was diluted in 70s with such accessories and details as jeans, scarves, comfortable sweaters and stylish shirts. These garment fairly quickly settled down in the wardrobe of the youth whereas the attractive appearance is matched with comfort.

Then, in 70s, Vivienne Westwood made the revolutionary discovery in fashion. A young rioter opened a store in London trading in informal clothing explaining the concept of punk style through her collections. Throughout many years that insanity dominated in London since the youth found the option to wear what they like without making garments matched up appropriate and comfortable with them. Punk style celebrated the fashion allowing every single item to wear for everyone. On the top of it, the preference to declare individuality and reluctance to look as everybody was prevailing that time. Today the street fashion echoes from that punk style when everything was allowed and it must have come for long.

The history of the British Crown closely related to Asian and African colonies is still observed in street fashion as ethic patters are preferred to apply in wear. Light Indian sari, heavy kerchiefs with patterns, flamboyant metal and wooden accessories are too liked by the Londoners.

The street fashion in London is mostly aimed at comfort. Stiletto shoes, austere design and rigid lines are rare here. Eclectic style is more preferred when various styles are combined which contradict traditionally. This is the style with the special implication and chic of uniqueness.

Kate moss is the known trendsetter of the careless English chic. For many years she demonstrates her skill to wear designer items with accessories she attained at flee markets in London. Kate introduced the way to wear austere-looking jacket with mini-shorts, high boots on bare legs, and match tiny jackets and vests with loose long shirts and tops with prints.

The other supermodel, Agyness Deyn, is the other symbol of the London street fashion today as ever. She longs for tight trousers, tops with prints, trainers, hats, suspenders, leather jacket and her style is regularly imitated in the street.

The clothing typical to rock culture is what the youth strives for. All that leather, clasps, metal accessories and cult of trousers live for many years hesitating to give floor to the romantic reality.

Skirts and dresses are not in favor in London. When they eventually preferred, then you see just mini versions. The romantic veil is also seen when fine floral liberty pattern often goes into streets of England.

Vagueness, blur and lack of permanent firm silhouette is the everlasting feature of modern dandy and lady. The edges are torn or wavy and slight crumples are in. Asymmetric style and streaming down sleeves, blousing on waistline or in the bosom area are trendy. Though, the image cannot be restricted with these details. A jacket, a coat and a scarf will be required.

The basic rule for London fashionmongers is that their wardrobe is full of items matched perfectly. Yet, this is the reason why items should not be too expensive to cost the fortune. Similar thirst justifies the urgency of flee markets.

TopShop is the brand that is the symbol of urban fashion. Marks&Spencer is the biggest British brand demonstrating clothes of more restricted style for low prices. H&M is one of the most favorite brands in Europe for the youth. The adherence of the vivid street fashion makes people around uncaring to designer items launched by Vivien Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith, Stella McCartney and others.
