On 8th September I flew back from Italy and I went straight to shoot an event for Agent Provocateur in Soho during the Vogue’s Fashion Night Out.

It was cool. A model was stripping at the window while many fake paparazzi were shooting her. Lots of people were curious to see what was happening. Lot of fun that night.

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!!!!

Back again to shoot for my project retro socialising. Yesterday all day has been dedicated to it. In the morning it took almost two hours to get the Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields where The Tashes Trophy was held. A cricket match, organized by the New Sheridans Club, played by the Hirsute Gentlemen against the Clean-Shaven players. It was a funny game. A guy smoking a pipe during the game, an Australian with long hair man wearing an army uniform from the 60’s and much more. The public was chatting and having pic -nic on the grass and wearing vintage clothes, drinking champagne.
