While staying London I thought I would also showcase my friend Burger Kim's extensive wardrobe. This kid has style in spades and more of it should be shown to the world. He is a master of layering and is great at mixing patterns and textures. On most people it could come off forced, but with Burger it always looks effortless.
The night Burger and I went dancing at Bang Bang we got a call at 3am from my friend Sarah's boyfriend, who is a producer for M-Net. He was in London filming a reality show starring Korean actor Ah-In Yoo (유아인), famous for his role in 'Antique'. The extra's they had for the club scene they wanted to shoot had backed out so they called us to meet them at Ah-In's 5 star luxury hotel, the Philippe Starck designed Sanderson at 4am to have a few beers and chat about trendy things to do in London. Here are a few images of the decor from the Sanderson Hotel.
The producers all liked Burger's style so much they asked him to take Ah-In shopping around central London. This is the outfit he wore that day. Ah-In was wearing a killer military inspired jacket by Burberry and carrying a handsome leather portfolio case. Unfortunately since it was Boxing Day a lot of the smaller, independent stores were shut but Burger did have a chance to take him to Year Zero London (I'll blog more about them later) and they also fought the crowds at Topshop & Urban Outfitters. Here are a few shots of the filming that day:
After the filming we were all tired and cold, so the producers booked us a table at an uber trendy restaurant/club/gallery called Sketch on Conduit Street. This place was gorgeously decorated and the meal itself was insane. I could totally get used to a life like that.
