Winter is finally upon us, but don't let it ruin your day! It doesn't matter whether it's sunny or cold outside, you should always enjoy what surrounds you. And that's exactly what I did on a cold morning around North London: explore Camden!
If there is something that characterises Camden, is their punk/goth/rocknrolla style that to me cries out loud: LET'S BE REBELS! And what is better than a leather jacket to portray that?
I've been looking for the perfect leather jacket for months now and it wasn't until I visited Camden that I found one. Should have thought about it earlier, really! This place is known because of its leather goods... In fact, in my first visit London (about 15 years ago, with my parents), trendy mum and I went on a shopping spree and bought what is still today my favourite leather jacket. You can see it on my insta :)
There are plenty of high-end options for a leather jacket, but for this instance I wanted something more special. I wanted something a bit more grunge and with a story. After walking up and down the street, we found a leather wholesaler on the back of one of those souvenir shops that we all love so much. Just walking into this place I knew I was in for the win. I love the smell of pure leather and the guys there knew exactly what they were talking about. They even gave me tips on how to wear it! I couldn't really say no this time, so lucky winner one on the pictures came back with me home.
Shopping along Camden High St is a lot of fun (specially if you are after leather goods, piercings or phone cases), only if you've got the patience to take it all in. Everybody wants to sell you something, so it can be tiresome. But hey, it's part of the entertainment, right? Every salesman there is so friendly, after all. And if you stay with them for a while, you'll go home with great tales to tell.
Stay tuned for more,
