Oh my…. what an awesome shot. The clothes, but moreover the body language. And that little Lavazza cart in the back. And of course the Somerset House, all beautifully arranged. They look totally like in the 40s 50s.
Very well put-together group…the young lady might have opted for a coat herself considering how the other members of her party are dressed. The camel overcoat of the gentleman with his back to the camera is of particular interest because of its classic construction, it flatters his athletic silhouette very well.
They went shopping together and now they are discussing where to go on vacation (somewhere cold and windy), or at least that’s what I see when I look at this beautiful picture :)
Love the contrast of the polished looks with that ultra-colourful umbrella, makes it fun.
Woah, I love her look! It’s amazing how that bustier and sheer top make the skirt very contemporary and modestly sexy.
I love such skirts, but have a hard time figuring out a combination which doesn’t make it look frumpy (and without having to go for skyhigh heels). This is great inspiration, thanks!
Wow! It seems so 80s chic love love every look. You dont see much of this in California, I miss the east coast where style is much more prominent. I mean i see preppy, mod, sophistication, a little retro and modern. Love this pic!
It has that vibe to it, but there are details that are out of place for that era, for instance the man wearing the combat jacket and jeans that would not have happened in that era. Only minor things different but to me the mark it out as modern.
I hate to disillusion the many American admirers of this photo. It’s a stunning shot and I love it too. But to an Englishman it’s blindingly obvious that the dramatis personae are members of London’s enormous ex pat community – probably Italian, French or anyway Mediterranean. I guess that’s why the men are in coats. Englishmen would not be at that stage quite yet.
lol, yes, they are all english; seems odd to suggest that a true ‘englishman’ has a specific date upon which they decide to wear their coats. it was cold, ergo, coats. perhaps worth taking this as a lesson in approaching photographs with a less judgemental eye.
Haha some of theses comments are quite funny.
Londonistas dress for themselves -for their mood, not the weather. They are not influenced too much by Paris/Milan/New York or anywhere else tbh as the city has its own electic and unique fashion dynamic.
The girl looks great – elegantly understated but nothing special.
At least one of the guys comes close to overdoing things with his ‘ look’ which is totally uncool in London.
It isn’t a fashion shoot so why would they need to look co-ordinated!!
Imho the girl and guy to her right are continental rather than ‘British’…though maybe not with THAT brolly! ;)
