Go-Faster Stripes
We caught Suo as she was stepping off of her boyfriend’s beautiful electric Vespa in Shanghai. She's studying at fashion university wearing a dress of her own design using jacquard and crushed fabric. We also loved those Fenty x Puma high sock sneakers, part of singer Rihanna's collaboration with the sports brand; now in its second year, it is continually winning acclaim from the likes of Vogue who said Rihanna's shoe designs are always a step ahead. We wonder if Suo has such forward-thinking aspirations for her design career, perhaps the go-faster stripes on those socks might help, especially on that Vespa!

Re-engineered Tweed
We spotted Robert through the crowd; there was a sea of people dressed in their most elegant suits and dresses having just completed the annual tweed run. It's a 12-mile bicycle ride across London where tweed-lovers unite upon their favourite steed; whether a Pashley or a Penny Farthing. Robert explained that this was his 3rd year, and he loves it so much that he also decided to marshal. Tweed jackets are a big part of his style; he is a civil engineer, but he likes to dress with an individual look. He was scouting through a vintage shop and discovered that tweeds were inexpensive, the rest is history! Robert regularly works with a tailor to design and rework the pieces. We love how he incorporated his heritage using Kente, a hand-woven African material that the tailor refashioned into a bowtie and pocket square. It's cross-continental refinement!

New Beginnings
We saw Bethany’s orange dress as she walked down to South Molten street in the sunshine, and then as we approached her smile lit up the look! She told us she was from Darlington but has lived in London forever. Having worked in fashion as a buyer, Bethany decided she wanted to do something different and set up her own online store called Studio B. At the moment she is busy gathering new and exciting stock like the 'Pom Pom' shoes she was wearing. There is also a collaboration in progress with a designer called Joanna Sands for a series of dresses like the one that she was wearing and 'testing' that day. They’ll be on the site at the end of May. We wish her well in her new venture! @studio_b_fashion
