BREAKFAST WITH SWEDISH HASBEENS

Wearing: Yohji Yamamoto jacket, 2nd Day tank, Nicolas Andreas Taralis skirt, Acne trousers, Converse trainers, Mimco bag, Dominic Jones and Backstage rings
Last week I had the chance to meet the founder of Swedish Hasbeens at Selfridges for the launch of their pop up store. It was so much fun, with a whole choreographed dance of girls bending into insane positions and flying through the air with ribbon sticks! It was the perfect way to show off the new SH collection, still with a hint of clog but mostly inspired by the classic bowling shoe. Emy, the founder of the iconic shoes and I could not have been more oppositely dressed she was telling the story of the beginnings of the brand; when they started in 2006 it was hard because everybody was having a black moment, now the world is more accepting of colour and their business is thriving, I suppose I'm still stuck in 2006 then! 
This is one of my more casual looks that I've been living in recently, loving my new shoes from Mr Porter! Michael actually pulled Alexxsia aside at the launch to double check if I knew I was wearing trainers, I love them ok? Now to get my hands on some of these bowling babies!

  2. Charlie, if you're 2006 then I'm freaking 1995. Apologies for the blurry photos, I'll work out your camera yet.

    P.S. The trainers are growing on me!

    1. It's not your fault, I realised afterwards that Lexxi had borrowed my camera to take photos for Company and had changed it from manual. Otherwise they would have been good!
