Camden 101 – #streetsyle

In #streetstyle, ART & FASHION, Features, HOME by Sam Prance

#streetstyle is a feature in which your friend and ours, Hannah Beer, skips around London stopping, photographing and questioning those she deems stylish. If you have noticed an Audrey Hepburn look-alike admiring your fashion it was probably Ms. Beer. It is also worth noting that the concept of street style is unique to Prancing Through LIFE.

The people who I photographed this week both have a very different look to those from last week, but that doesn’t mean that they’re any less stylish. Jane Birkin and Grace Kelly had entirely different looks, and yet no one can dispute the fact that they were both incredibly stylish. Coco Chanel (who we take as gospel) noted that style is eternal, and I would expand on this to say that it can manifest itself in many ways… and what better place to see them all than London?

Cheila, 22. Spotted: Camden High Street

cheilaThere are so many people walking around Camden High Street at 5pm on a Sunday that seeing anyone at all can prove quite challenging. Seeing someone worth blogging about therefore is nigh on impossible. However, I noticed Cheila’s super impressive ear cuff and the intricate detail on her cardigan immediately and knew I need look no further. I also really love how surprisingly cute her socks are in contrast with the rest of her outfit. And I never notice socks, not even my own. So that’s a pretty good effort.

What does style mean to you?


Dovydas, 26. Spotted: Camden Town Tube Station

dovydasWhen I approached Dovydas and asked to take his photo, he was shocked. He said, I quote, “I look awful today!”. I beg to differ. I am probably the world’s biggest fan of all black outfits (apart from perhaps Wednesday Addams), because it allows for subtlety in the detail. For example, Dovydas’ fingerless gloves, and all the different textures that exist in his coat and scarf alone are beautiful. I think this outfit perfectly showcases that style isn’t necessarily about going big, it’s actually the opposite. Or so I believe, anyway.

Hannah Beer

Hannah Beer is a student at University College London. She studies Italian and German. In her spare time Hannah enjoys eating red velvet cupcakes and banging on about feminism. When Hannah grows up she’d like to be Audrey Hepburn – this may prove difficult but let the haters hate. Hannah looks a lot like Audrey Hepburn so she’s half way there.
