Look 164. London Grunge

Photography by Moritz Lips. Written by Oliver Lips.

Seeing that this is the third article (read first and second) from London you must be wondering how long we actually stayed there two weeks ago? We were in town for about 36 hours yet managed to attend the Samsung #Unpacked event, shoot three looks and explore a bit of Camden Town together with Andrea, Minea and Nives.

When we're traveling Moritz and I often try to shoot as much content for the blog as possible, since Zurich is starting to get a bit small for us. It feels like we have already used so many of the available shooting locations. Also it is sometimes hard to find the suitable backgrounds and moods for our shoots.

This time we wanted to take in the London underground and grunge vibes and what better place to do so in Camden Town? It is somehow a peculiar place between tourist magnet and center for all things punk / rock, piercing and tattoos, drugs, cultural differences and Amy Winehouse.
My look was simple and consisted of a sweater, some cut-off jeans, a pair of Converse and my favourite Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses, yet what made it special was the coat. Light, long, airy and a perfect companion for the uncertain British weather.
