Street Style: Mid Century Modern
Meet Austin Vince, 44, and Lois Pryce, 36. Inspired by early Robert Redford movies, the dashing Mr Vince customises retro overalls, and, apparently, is the only person in the world to do so. If you'd like a pair, please contact him at email@example.com
Mildred Palmer, 47, and Jo Barber, 52, both work for Margaret Howell. Mildred is rocking a Uniqlo shirt and recently cultivated quiff. Jo has opted for Gap jeans, a second-hand cashmere cardi and her classic suede coat (Margaret Howell, of course).
Mr Id, 41, is a vintage furniture dealer who runs an online business and a lovely shop in Honor Oak Park. He firmly believes that we should forget the flatpack, and spend our money recycling old furniture instead.
We were so excited when we saw Lydia Sheppard, 81, that we stopped her on the stairs and caused a bit of a kerfuffle. Lydia worked as a doctor in Saudia Arabia during the 1980s, which is where she found this eye-catching silk blouse.
Lorna Leslie, 49, is obviously a bit handy with a needle and thread, she made this stylish textured coat herself. Looks good with her old Issey Miyake tunic, no?
