Most of what I do is built on relationships. Surrounding myself with good people, brainstorming ideas and then coming together to create content. For me it’s about being part of a wider online community and learning from others.

For brands like Oliver Spencer that feeling of community is just as important and something they consider when opening new stores. Starting off as a market trader himself, Oliver Spencer’s new store on Kensington Park Road is somewhat of a homecoming.

Due to the brand’s tie to the area, they knew all the good spots for us to try out. Oliver (Hooson) and myself spent the day with the Oliver Spencer team checking out their favourite spots, starting with Pedlars. We sat down in the café and talked about their show last month, our favourite pieces from current and future collections and our appreciation for the area we were in.

The pace and feel of Notting Hill is definitely something I could accustom myself to. It’s quieter than most places and sees people and stores coming together to champion where they live..

A slow mooch around the residential streets to envisage what it’d be like to live in one of the white townhouses and we found ourselves sat outside Electric Cinema for lunch before walking across the road to The Ginstitute. It goes without saying that if gin is your drink, I’d urge you to go.

The afternoon offered up a cloudy day, where sunshine was at a premium. Cooler temperatures meant I cloud comfortably switch into heavier fits of ecru denim and a indigo half-zip long sleeve slipped over a pocket t-shirt. There were no complaints from my end as I’m anti-shorts whenever I can. It’s all about those big turn-ups and straight fits at the minute.

The pace and feel of Notting Hill is definitely something I could accustom myself to. It’s quieter than most places and sees people and stores coming together to champion where they live. If you find yourself in London, jump on the Central Line and take a trip Notting Hill. Use this post as a base for your day, starting with Oliver Spencer of course.

      That’s very kind of you Kris. I find when you’re in a new area you’re actively looking to take photos, so that definitely helped.
