Saturday September 11th.

I take two bus to get to the secret location in Dalston. I have the address and the name of the Club: BOYS CLUB. I look for it, but it is so difficult to find it. I ask someone in the street, but they don’t knowexactly where it is. Ok. I decide to go back to the bus stop and have a look the map there. So, now I know where the street is located. I find it but at the number I have I can see a sort of house which looks like a church and finally I can read on the top of the main door BOYS CLUB. Great news. I knock the door and someone open it. At the entrance a couple of guys were chatting in front of decadent stairs and old frames on the wall. I go through another door and a nice lady seats at a table with the light of only one candle. I told her my name and explain that I talked by email with Die-Freche Muse but she says that this is the name of the party, while she is looking for my name with difficulty. Finally after 2 minutes she find myself and I have free access. The light is very low, the place is surreal, the music is from the 40’s and the people wearing vintage clothes is busy for drinking and chatting. The atmosphere is amazing. Lovely girls are around. They are really fascinating. Baron Von Sanderson is the organizer of the event. On the balcony upstairs people smoke and slowly the room, during the night, smell of smoke. A nice Asian woman perform burlesque, a singer sing live French songs while a gentleman play a classical guitar. The dj plays vintage music and people have fun dancing in couple, like many years ago. There is also a group of very young guys. Vintage doesn’t have age!!!!

It is time for the New Sheridans Club summer party “The Far Pavilions” at Salon d’Etè. An amazing vintage atmosphere, the right music, the right clothes, the right people. Candles on the tables light up the guests with a warm light, a lovely singer on the stage performs with a band, a funny game is played on the stage, shooting a flying piece of crispy bread is the goal. The social aspect is at the peak and never as now I really feel to be back in the past. I am really fascinated by a lovely woman who is wearing a Victorian dress, her elegance is something indescribable. Mirrors on the wall reflect the person dancing on the floor swing, couples chatting with charm and off course many people have fun drinking and get drunk. This has been the same for ages. Incredible night!!

I have just started a project about retro socialising-vintage and burlesque. After The Clap Olympiad and a night of Burlesque with Tassel Club, last night I shot during a swing party. Sounds from the 40’s and 50’s with Black Cotton at Volupte Club.
