It’s been noted by the Breathe team that the fashion slaves living and working around Shoreditch are going BIG on unkempt large bushy facial growth (that’s mainly male members of our community). Maybe it’s the long winter or the effect of Johnny Harrington, the John Lewis spring collection model, who has moved the fashion world from “Heroin Chic” to “Hobo Chic”. Johnny is now living in LA working on an assignment for Levi.
It does seem an irony that John Lewis is setting trends with those who wouldn’t be seen dead shopping with the ladies who lunch in their local Department Store. They are more likely to be paying through the nose for stuff that came out of a charity shop, is now called “vintage”, and costs £££’s.
So in Media Land the Goatee is dead and the Hobo is born.
Anyway, where is the nearest John Lewis to Hoxton, that must Brent Cross?
