I had a lovely time is all I can say. To be honest I kinda hated London cause I got robbed in 2014 by a tourist. But after being back this year, on my own, on a different level, I like it a lot. Before I even write down the spots I went to, I really want to give a huge shout out to Paolo, my friend. He has taken me everywhere and he is one of the best humans I know. I was invited on Wednesday for the workshop with Farfetch x The Shoe surgeon. After sleeping in Nobu shoreditch hotel, I went to the CitizenM hotel which was only 2 blocks away. Nobu is a great hotel, very fancy, super nice decorated, and the breakfast is amazing. But the CitizenM was more my thing, they had Kaws dolls everywhere, more dope ass artwork, a shower in the room with purple light, a big ass bed and a big window (selfie light was great). I really enjoyed my stay there. I had to leave on Saturday so I only had Thursday and Friday to see the city and go shopping. Saturday morning I went to Crepe City cause I had to catch my flight at 5. I did not shoot a lot of pics cause I just wanted to hang out and relax. I have such a busy life I really needed some time off to enjoy and so I did.
I went shopping in Shoreditch, Brick lane and London City. I haven’t done any sight seeing and tourists stuff cause I’ve already seen that in 2014 when I went to London with my best friend Caroll Lynn. I’ve had breakfast at The breakfast club and The Diner which were both really nice. Oh and I had Nando’s for the first time haha. Here are some shops I visited, mostly sneaker shops!
Shops: Footpatrol, Offspring, SneakersNstuff, Size?, Palace, Supreme, Selfridges, Blitz, Rokit Vintage, Nike town, Urban Outfitters, Ovo London flagship, Dover street market, Adidas store, Goodhood, Hamleys
On Saturday was Crepe City, a big sneaker event with loads of resellers, sneaker lovers, artwork and photographers. I love the community cause everyone is so nice and humble. Its way different then here in The Netherlands. I feel like people in The Netherlands try too hard. In London loads of guys don’t give a shit about how they wear certain styles. They rock it and flaunt in the way they want to. I like that a lot. I copped myself a Air max 97 Gold bullet, some AF1’s, Stussy socks, Goodhood T-shirt, a Supreme t-shirt and some gifts for the holidays.
