As I said in the previous post, I wore my own selection of Belstaff outfit from their Spring/Summer 2016 to their Polar Pioneer’ Autumn/Winter 2016 Presentation this London Fashion Week. Before heading to the show at Old Holy Trinity Church in Marylebone, I had a few hours to myself to explore the area near the venue. I must admit that I did not come to North Marylebone often anymore even though fifteen years ago, this used to be my daily route to university. So, a little stroll was actually refreshing. One thing I loved about Fashion Week was that it encouraged me to travel to parts of London that I did not usually go to, or sometimes, to places that I did not even know existed, which was always an intriguing experience because I bound to make new discoveries.

For Belstaff Presentation last Sunday, I revisited Warren Street and Great Portland Street area. I had forgotten what a contrasting character these two areas were, even though they were adjacent to each other and only a tube stop apart. Warren Street was a messy concrete and glass jungle, yet a fifteen minutes walk later I was transported in time into the gentile era of Regency architecture by world renown architects such as John Nash and Robert Adams. Five minutes walk later I found myself completely in the wilderness of Regent’s Park! There were not many cities in the world that could offer such contrasting, unexpected sceneries within a half hour walk, especially right in the city centre, no less! Perhaps this was one of the contributing factors why I learned to appreciate clothes that were practical, versatile and timeless (The other major contributing factor is of course my profession), so that I could look more or less appropriately dressed for any situation in any environments I might find myself in, even if it was just for a typical day in a city.  After all, London was a pretty unpredictable city just like its weather.  It was windy and rainy during that day even though it was also sunny and quite warm in the morning. Fortunately for me, I chose to wear a total look from Belstaff with the ‘Anchor Blouson’ that happened to be light yet windproof and waterproof, all white ‘Ketcher Sweater’ top featuring discreet cut out details and wide leg Bramble Culotte Trousers Bone, so I was comfortable and well protected from the elements throughout the day.  Subtle detailing on garments are what I am into at the moment because they add interest and sophistication on an otherwise classic or a minimal look. I hope you enjoy the photos of the outfit and my visual journey in an urban jungle of North London before arriving at Belstaff AW16 Presentation below…
