Brick Lane’s culture realised

“Brick Lane is known for its youthful culture in fashion, music and art,” says photographer Condry Calvin Mlilo. “It is an area of London that people from all over the world tend to visit to get that buzz and injection of music, fashion, art and the vibrancy in culture as a whole.”

Mlilo’s shoot Brick-Lane Boy aims to capture that fusion. It’s about the mood of the place, the street art, the culture, as much as it is about portraying a particular style of menswear.

Nadejah Williams hits on a styling mix that at times has model Raimi donning tough vintage leather jackets, at others maintaining a masculine geek-chic look in thick rimmed glasses, buttoned up shirts and blazers in spring colours. Meanwhile Mlilo makes sure there’s a little inkling of Brick Lane culture in every frame.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
