On the Street…….The Young Romantic, London

The guy in the bowler hat reminded me of this shot I had taken in London and had not yet posted.

    This has a very nice fallen-angel aspect, see the cig and slight scowl on the otherwise golden-headed cherub.

    Love the little jabot-y thing, the layering, and the jeans, yet another hint of lower depths…

    His face conveys a devilish innocent look… I like the polka dot accent.

    The ouftfit is great. i love the combinations of black and grey and the materials, the accessories…but his body tyoe is not well suited to the different lenghts and layering. If I was him, I;d go more minimal and streamline it better.

    Before I read the caption, I was like “Another Sophisticate Goth!”

    Indeed, there’s a resemblance in terms of the stylistics.

    He’s cute cuz he’s so obviously in need of sun but I know he’s rockin’ it cuz it’s part of his whole “deal,” you know? I like the thingie (ascot?) around his neck.

    I like the black palette against his very blond hair, I think pale blondes can pull off the all black pseudo goth wardrobe better than many. I’m betting his bookshelf includes Proust, Celine, Comte de Lautremonte…

    Great photo. Interesting and compelling fellow. This short jacket style reminds of platform shoes, though; someday we will smile knowingly, if we aren’t already. -JCH

    I know this guy! He is studying at London College of Fashion, i often see him there, always dressed up in a very sophisticatedly black outfits. Nice style, but he reminds me a lot of an Alexander McQueen wannabe. * Samira.
