Style spotting at Spitalfield Markets

All in the space of 20 minutes at Spitalfields, I had spotted more hot outfits than one photographer could capture.

This short, dark and angular bob is what Sassoon was renowned for in the 1960's and is definitely making a come back. Otherwise known as the 'mop top' this blunt bob was made iconic by the Beatles, Mary Quant and other Mods. I wasn't so surprised when Michael confirmed he's a Sassoon stylist in the training.

If clothes maketh a man, then Mulberry maketh the English gentleman. I have to admit, while not an advocate of designer wear, that this luxurious oversized leather hand bag by Mulberry really caught my eye. Paired with chinos and a summer '10 H&M tee this outfit is far from snob.

I love this 1980's style turquoise leather jacket mixed with the bowler hat and leopard print scarf. It reminds me of Blondie, where rap and reggae meet 80's synthesiser cool. Topped off with a pair of clogs this outfit is eclectic yet very now.

A fellow fashion blogger, this Italian gent is due to start a fashion internship in London. Definitely loads of attitude and completely daring... leather jacket, over-sized tee and accessorised with a whistle necklace. Is the whistle necklace the latest accessory? Everyone from All Saints to Juicy Couture and Missoni seem to have a whistle necklace in their range.

Another Italian inspiring passerby's on the streets of London with his outrageous outfit. Love the suspender effect he's achieved with a duffel bag. An embroidered shirt, cropped Austrian hiker style shorts and jelly shoes really create an effective combo.
