A collection of stunning photographs capturing the essence of fashionable London, from the known—Annie Lennox and her daughters, Emma Watson, Russell Brand, and more—to the unknown
I spent the last 30 years working and living in this great city and it is a hard place to leave. Apart from the architecture and history it is a place of wonderfully diverse and gifted people. New York may pride itself on being a melting pot but London has this street fashion thing which keeps on and on popping up new talent and new personalities. When I say personalities this is not limited to the rich and famous. London produces wave upon wave of eccentric, engaging, unique, talented, courageous individuals. There is something 'cool' about London and its people, whether they are born and bred there are just passing through for a while." —Chris Craymer
