Neal Str, London

I'm not sure how much I actually care about fashion as such. My personal style and preferences are, in general, much more important than what Vogue might say is 'in' or what Topshop sells as the 'trendiest item of the season'. However, every now and then I do get ideas from magazines. I love masculine shoes and currently I live in this nice pair of brogues. I would also love to get some wedges, but I haven't found anything I particularly like. When it comes to shopping, as a student, I prefer vintage and second-hand clothes. Another good place for cool finds is usually your own or family member's closet, for example, my dad bought me this bag when I was about five and I had completely forgotten about it. However, I also admire designers like Hussein Chalayan, who are very avant garde and independent when it comes to fashion.

London street style is very eclectic and every neighborhood has its own distinct style. The 'it'-place has been for a while Brick Lane, but they come and go. The variety of styles in London is what's really inspiring here. I'm still a student, and I often shop at places like Urban Outfitters and vintage stores, and these kind of stores dictate, to an extent, what you can wear, because you never know what you will find there. I don't usually like to wear too many patterns and, instead, balance them out with basic simple pieces. Currently I'm looking for a nice pair of low-top sneakers. I really hate when people compare me to Rihanna, and I'm not too keen on having a style icon in general - I want to be individual and unique.
