A day out in London and I found myself wandering over to the Photographers’ Gallery in Soho, where they’re showing ‘Soho Nights‘, an exhibition of images taken by Ken Russell.

Seeing the underground bars and jazz halls of Soho was interesting enough, but obviously my eyes couldn’t help being drawn to the clothes. Street style was pretty much unheard of in the ’50s, so the chance to see hip young things in the ‘wild’, so to speak, is an opportunity not to be missed! I love the chunky woollen jumper in the photograph above, teamed with the beret it’s the height of insouciant chic. Jump through for a great image of a barefoot man lindy hopping with a young woman in great wide leg trousers.
