Not unlike the denizens of Brooklyns Williamsburg, its inhabitants exhibit a highly individual sense of style, in keeping with their environment.

His full-color shotsframed against raw, vibrant backgroundsportray hundreds of self-fashioned individuals flaunting remarkably creative personal style. Animated by graffiti found on local streets, as well as quotes from style and cultural icons including Vivienne Westwood, Malcolm McLaren, and Alexander McQueen, this book encapsulates the avant-garde spirit of a new urban counterculture taking not just London but all major urban centers by storm. 295+ illustrations
