Superga

‘First stop, trainers. I’ve spent years toying with the fact that now I’m (a little bit) older, I should probably branch out and find something a bit more pared down. Classic Italian sneaker brand, Superga is the fashion girl’s trainer. Coming in a rainbow of colours, you can match these canvas plimsoles with any outfit – trust me.’

24HOURCLUB

‘I went to school in Camden so when I spotted a giant airstream on the cobbles, I knew it must be new. It turned out to be a pop-up from the awesome guys at 24HOURCLUB. They mainly stock menswear, but when you’ve been a streetwear fan for as long as I have, you learn little tricks to make a men’s small work for you. I’d rock this XLARGE long sleeve baseball tee with vintage jeans.’

Lantana

‘Next I stopped by Lantana for a coffee and to check my emails – work never stops! I wish I wasn’t on a super healthy eating trip because the cakes in that place are insane, especially the crack cake.’

St CYR Vintage

‘I love vintage denim; I can’t stop buying it… As a North Londoner, Camden Market is the place I’ve always gone to pick up a new (old) pair of 501s or a denim shirt. So my last stop was St CYR Vintage – there’s denim for days. With summer round the corner, I need a new denim jacket. I found a Levi’s one that fit perfectly.’
