The Sartorialist may have crowned New York as the centre of street style but Paul Flynn has written an eloquent piece on why London style is among the most interesting in the world, as part of the G2 London fashion special in the Guardian today. It explains why, although we don’t get the commercial glory of New York or the couture kudos of Paris London is still a force to be reckoned with:

“If in Paris you could take an educated guess at someone’s salary from their wardrobe, in London, Manchester or Glasgow you could probably pin down the last record they bought, their political inclinations, and the places they most like to get drunk in. British street style is delivered with a spirit of invention, not regimentation. It doesn’t replicate, it innovates. Much to our credit, there is no shame in busting a look, which is why we gave to the world punk in the 70s, acid house in the 80s and the micro-niches of both (electro, nu-rave, elegantly wasted indie kids).”
